Dress and Braid for the Occasion Achieving the red carpet look with the perfect ensemble

So the Grammy Awards are this coming Sunday and I thought I'd share some trending red carpet looks...well, mostly hair. I've kind of been obsessed with braids lately - have you?! I mean, you may have noticed me pinning them like crazy! I love that braids can be dressed up sweet and pretty, or dressed down and messy...both red carpet styles - either way, they look amazing! Here are a few of my favorite styles:

// Valentino Braids (side braid and milkmaid braid) These iconic hairstyles made popular by Valentino may have graced numerous high-profile fashion runways all over the world, but achieving this look doesn’t have to cost a fortune (or a supermodel body) – be bold and pair this one-sided Irish braid or milkmaid braid with any form-fitting dress. Speaking of which, if majority of us can't look like those supermodels, some brands are there to the rescue so that we can at least feel like supermodels. Did you know that by coming up with innovative ideas that suit women of all shapes and sizes, M&S successfully introduced their Secret Support dresses that smooths “danger zones” like the tummy, hips, and thighs? Now, any woman can feel more comfortable in their clothes, and I'm all for that!

// Fishtail Braid Achieving the perfect look with this classic hairstyle becomes easy, as long as we don’t over-complicate things - the fishtail braid is so intricate and detailed on its own! Any relaxed top and washed out denim shorts goes well with a tousled 'do, woven into an Irish-inspired fishtail braid. Or dress it up with a simple and pretty silhouette! Even paired with a feminine, sharp black pantsuit and shirt looks amazing.
