    THE BEAUTY
    TIP-OFF:

    Rapunzel plaits

    Braids are back. But think less childhood images, more polished
    Upper East Side, instead. As Guido, the stylist behind Valentino's side-swept plaits, explains, "There's seduction in its innocence." Side-part your hair, loosely plait, then rub a few drops of Rahua Hair Elixir lightly down the length. Et voilà: sleek, sophisticated elegance.

    the Modern Muse:

    Natalia Vodianova

    Who: Russian-born supermodel
    who makes children's wishes come
    true by building play parks in her home country, as founder of the
    Naked Heart Foundation.

    Her signature look: Elegant gowns in delicate lace or silk.

    The runway tribute: The luxurious marabou-trimmed dresses at Jason Wu and lace gowns at Valentino
    are pitch-perfect.

    How to wear it now: Choose all out drama with a red lace gown, matching lips and simple sandals.

    NATALIA's style
