Why mess with perfection, you might ask? Well, according to 90210‘s Shenae Grimes, it’s all part of a delicate fashion balance. “I think with a pretty dress, you need to casual [your hair] down,” the actress explained to PEOPLE at Tuesday’s 35th Annual Gracie Awards Gala at L.A.’s Beverly Hilton Hotel. The petite beauty, who had nervously Tweeted earlier that morning, “Only plan today is getting beautified to present at the gracie’s this eve…sounds glamorous but fancy aint my forte…slightly freaking, help!!,” needn’t have worried: For the event, she was elegantly turned out in a plunging, floor-length black dress by Canadian designer Evan Biddell with a gold statement belt–which played yin to the yang of her artfully undone hair. “Instead of blowing it out and, you know, making it all pretty, I finally achieved a good messy updo,” Grimes told PEOPLE, noting, “‘Messy’ and ‘updo’ never seem to go together in the same sentence.”–Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Scott Huver
