Get The Look: Karolina Kurkova’s Valentino Sala Bianca 945 Braided Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Yepez worked with Karolina Kurkova for the Valentino Sala Bianca 945 Event on Wednesday (December 10) in New York City.

Explaining her beauty inspiration, Jennifer said, “Karolina’s Valentino dress was beautiful and romantic so we wanted the hair to be modern and strong. We felt a centre part with sleek shine would work best. We also wanted something special in the back so I created a beautiful braided bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Jennifer began by spraying PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray section by section and blew the hair dry using a Mason Pearson brush. She made sure to spray from roots to ends in order to get a better grip on the ponytail and to make the hair thicker for the braid.

Once the hair was dry, she created the centre part. She used the Mason Pearson to smooth the hair and make the ponytail, securing it with an elastic hook. Once secured, she sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray throughout the ponytail to give it volume and a bit of texture.

Next she braided the ponytail and secured it with a small elastic band. She carefully shaped the braid to Karolina’s head and used small hair pins (matching her hair colour) to pin it in place. She sprayed a bit of Kerastase Laque Couture Hairspray to tame flyaways. She also used a tail comb on the back of the braid to tuck in any loose ends and a small teasing brush (a toothbrush works well, too) to smooth the front of the hair.

The look was finished with Kerastase Touche Finale for extra shine, and she was carpet-ready.

Valentino New York Sala Bianca 945 Event

Valentino New York Sala Bianca 945 Event

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli hosted their first Valentino Haute Couture show in New York City on Wednesday (December 10).

The one-off special show, which was an homage to the designer’s famous 1968 white collection, was in celebration of Valentino’s Fifth Avenue flagship store, attracting many celebrity guests who are all big fans of the brand.

Emma Roberts: The young actress instantly caught my eye in her uber-sweet Valentino sugary pink frock with flared cuffs and a multicoloured floral collar. While I love the contrasting mauve Valentino clutch, the Valentino taupe pumps don’t work for me.

Padma Lakshmi: The TV host never fails to provide a jaw-dropping moment, this time wearing a super-sweet Valentino orange-hued mini dress amped up with a pair of sexy black over-the-knee boots.

Karolina Kurkova: I was charmed by the statuesque beauty, who was serving up lace and colourful florals. Her bold, intricate look was enhanced with red pumps, which matched her glossy lips, and a hot-pink clutch. She can do no wrong.

Get The Look: Karolina Kurkova’s Easy-Looking Rimowa Opening Event Hair

Get The Look Karolina Kurkova's Easy-Looking Rimowa Opening Event Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett worked with Karolina Kurkova for the Rimowa opening event on Wednesday in Miami, Florida.

Explaining his beauty inspiration, Bryce said, “Karolina’s Delpozo look was strong yet feminine so we wanted to go with feminine, easy-looking hair. We decided on a very low loose pony.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Bryce blew her hair out with Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice, set it in soft waves and then brushed them out.

He secured the pony with a very small clear elastic band slipped over the hair (not doubled up) so that it just barely held the hair together and sat very low on her shoulders, giving the appearance it was barely secured.

The look was finished with a few drops of Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel through the ends.

Karolina Kurkova In Delpozo – Rimowa Store Miami Opening

Karolina Kurkova In Delpozo  - Rimowa Store Miami Opening

From a chilly London for the British Fashion Awards on Monday, Karolina Kurkova attended the Rimowa store opening on Wednesday (December 3) in Miami, Florida.

The change in climate meant she was able to showcase a little more skin so she donned a Delpozo Spring 2015 two-piece look consisting of a white one-shoulder top featuring an exaggerated rosette at the front paired with bright red graduated wide-leg trousers with cropped hem.

Her look, as always, is a cut above: bold, sexy and fierce, she never disappoints on the red carpet.

Especially in the shoe department, where she took inspiration from the runway to wear a pair of red statement heels while rounding out the look with a silver clutch.

Models @ The 2014 British Fashion Awards

Models @ The 2014 2014 British Fashion Awards

A host of models held court at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, where the runway stunners took to the red carpet at the London Coliseum in London, England on Monday (December 1).

Daisy Lowe: She may have been dressed in shades of blush-pink, but there was a sexy side to all that sweetness with her Antonio Berardi asymmetrical, figure-hugging gown that was slit to her hip. A heart-embellished clutch by Charlotte Olympia finished the look on a lighthearted note.

Suki Waterhouse: From shades of pink to shades of blue, the model subscribed to the sheer trend in a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 tiered and pleated, navy ombre-inspired frock that was perhaps one shade too see-through. Gold metallic sandals provided a spirited contrast, but the baby-blue edged purse had no business here.

Joan Smalls: This Tom Ford scoop-neck LBD was sliced and diced with side cutouts and slits galore. She completed the skin-baring look with black Givenchy heels and a Rauwolf clutch.
