Braids have been white hot since the start of 2013, and the girlie hair trend shows no sign of slowing down. And just when we think we’ve said everything there is to say about plaits, along comes another one that’s worth a closer look.

This week alone, three A-listers stepped out with discussion-worthy locks with a high degree of difficulty (and a big payoff). Warning: These were done by professionals. Do not try at home without supervision. But if you do and nail it, we’re definitely going to need you to tweet us a photo @StyleWatchMag.

Olivia Wilde Gets Romantic With a Hot Guy (Sorry, Jason!) For Her Avon Ads

Here comes the bride, all dressed in white — but wait, that hot brunet guy isn’t love Jason Sudeikis by her side!

Luckily, Olivia Wilde‘s funnyman fiancé can rest easy. Wilde’s just playing dress-up for her latest gig as the face of Avon’s “Today. Tomorrow. Always” fragrance collection. Check out the behind-the-scenes video:

Following in the footsteps of another sultry brunette, the star goes from serene to smokin’ in ads for Avon’s “Today. Tomorrow. Always” fragrances. And in another video capturing moments from the sexy shoot (below), the star says the ads give off “a tone of bliss” (and then she mentions all the passion on set — luckily, we doubt Sudeikis is the jealous type).

Olivia Wilde Blows Away the Competition and Earns Best-Dressed Title

Really, it’s a wonder any star even got dressed and hit the red carpet after Olivia Wilde stepped out earlier this week in her gorgeous Osman dress. Why even try to compete with this look?

The actress and bride-to-be paired the strapless red midi with nude accessories and a coordinating bold pout for the We’re the Millers premiere in N.Y.C. The ensemble earned her nearly 26,000 votes from PeopleStyleWatch.com readers, significantly more than the runner-up, Emily VanCamp.

VanCamp surprised us by landing in that second spot with her suede turtleneck halter dress. (Suede? And a turtleneck? In the summer? Really?) Though we can’t deny that the Revenge star looks smoking hot in the design.

Also of note on the list this week: Eva Longoria in her own version of a formal turtleneck (these are officially having a moment) and Sharon Stone killing it in a white pencil skirt and silky black button-down.

What do you think of Wilde’s red dress? Does it deserve all the love it’s getting or do you think another look should be in the top spot?

From Date Night to Brunch, Exactly What to Wear This Weekend

We have three fun looks that will take you from a flirty date to a three-mimosa brunch to a Powerpoint presentation with minimal effort. You can’t miss with any of them — we may just try all three!

Diane Kruger striped shirt
AKM-GSI

Saturday night: Diane Kruger manages to take boyfriend jeans to a date-night-appropriate level. How? With a killer pair of heels, chic striped top and red cross-body bag. And since guys are always gushing about how they love a girl in jeans, take a cue from the actress and give the LBD a rest for a more laid-back look.

Nab a pair of Diane’s exact Blank NYC jeans for $88, or check out the Express jean sale (we’re loving this ankle-rolled pair). Complete the look with a striped top like this one from Forever 21 (only $12.80!) and embellished heels like this Jeffrey Campbell pair on sale for $49.95.

Olivia Wilde Dishes On Wedding Dress Details

In the PDA-packed months leading up to her wedding to Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde has been tight-lipped about what she’ll wear to walk down the aisle — until now.

The star spills in the August issue of InStyle that she’ll be in Monique Lhuillier, and her lucky bridesmaids will too.

Rather than “that tortured tradition of forcing them to wear a ridiculous dress they’ll never wear again,” she says, “they’ll have a real creation tailored for each of them. They can dye it black or purple and wear it forever.”

So that gives us one more clue: The bridesmaid dresses will be light-colored! It’s a sweet and girlie touch for former tough girl Wilde, who shares that her teenage style was inspired by ’70s male musicians — think lots of polyester. “Boys were my role models back then,” she tells the magazine.

Her style has come a long way since then: Wilde shares her can’t-live-without style finds (including an ALC dress “my boyfriend loves almost more than I do”) and, refreshingly, talks about how happy she is in this moment. We’ve got a feeling we’re going to see one beaming, beautiful bride very soon!

For lots more on Wilde’s style (including her evolving looks, best red carpet moments and prettiest hairdos), visit InStyle.com and pick up the new issue, on stands Friday.

Tell us: What do you think of Wilde’s wedding gown (and bridesmaid dress) plans?
