Floral headdresses may seem like the number one accessory for a music festival but two stylish A-listers have taken the look to the red carpet. Coco Rocha and Katy Perry wore flowers in their hair over the weekend, to the Kentucky Derby and The Great Gatsby NYC premiere, respectively. While the hairstyles were different—Perry opted to weave flowers into a halo braid while Rocha used orchids to complement her Derby hat—the colours were very similar, with both women wearing lavender, mauve and vibrant-purple blooms.
Considering that the hats get just as competitive as the horses at the Kentucky Derby, Coco Rocha’s take on the may-as-well-be-mandatory style is extremely elegant. The Phillip Treacy hat is balanced with a low chignon bun to one side and vibrant orchids on the other. Couldn’t you picture Kate Middleton in this hat, hairstyle and orchid combination? (Come to think of it, Kate would also be into the Zac Posen jacket and skirt that Rocha’s wearing.) Of course, the best part of this look has to be Coco Rocha’s lipstick—it matches both the flowers and the lining on her jacket and suits her red hair. We’re still waiting for confirmation on the colour, but it looks very much like Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids in “Pink Pop” so get thee to the drugstore if you want to duplicate this look.
