Braids are still big news. We've seen them on the Fall 2011 NYFW runways at Rag & Bone, Erin Fetherston, Y-3, Tracy Reese, Rachel Roy, Nanette Lepore, Alexandre Herchcovitch and over in London too at PPQ. And now Kate Bosworth has stepped up and shown us just how versatile pretty plaits can be. The gorgeous actress and jewellery designer is Nylon's March 2011 cover girl and opens up to the magazine about her style and career. The style bible's given her an edgier makeover and the braids add to the "I'm with the band" vibe. Whether they're casually draped across one eye, framing her face in a curtain fringe style or adding a boho feel to her look, there's no denying that Bossie makes braids look beautiful. Sigh. LOVE.
