HAIR
• It may not be spring, but it's already time to copy Alexander Wang's spring 2010 loose, unraveled side-braid. Rachel McAdams rocked the look at the premiere of Sherlock Holmes in London last night, while Kasia Struss also wore a Wang-ish do for the January issue of Vogue.

• Gray hair is becoming fashionable in Britain. Gareth Pugh showed the hue for his spring show, and Pixie Geldof wears the color now after three years of being blonde. "I didn’t want to do another color like pink, gray just seemed obvious," Geldof says. Would you go gray on purpose (or stop dyeing your whites)? [Times UK]
