On Wednesday night, the flawless Diane Kruger attended the lighting of the holiday decorations on Paris’s famed Champs-Élysées. The actress wore her blonde locks in a set of rope braids which she twisted into a faux bob—very Heidi-meets-Princess Leia. She paired the wholesome style with a metallic brocade Lanvin dress and tiger-face belt: the world’s most fashionable warrior princess.

Tip: Tame flyaways by spritzing a toothbrush with hairspray before lightly running the bristles along your hair.
