Nicole Kidman has already proven herself to be one of the most glamorous women on the French Riviera at this year's Cannes Film Festival with her flawless hair and beauty looks.
Leading the way with a series of intricate up-dos, Nicole, 45, perfected the art of plaited hairstyles during the final evening of the festival with two rather spectacular red carpet ensembles.

Attending the Zulu premiere on the Sunday evening, the Australian-born actress sported an impressive thick, low-slung bun made up from several loose plaits. These were then pinned and threaded into into place within her voluminous, blonde mane.
Complex yet elegant, this highly styled up-do complemented the actress' custom-made Giorgio Armani silk gown with a plunging neckline and was kept looking sophisticated with a simple side-swept parting to frame Nicole's slim face.
Nicole also attended the premiere of Venus In Fur, an adaptation directed by Roman Polanski, where her naturally wavy hair was transformed yet again with a more detailed, woven hairstyle.
The actress' up-do, which was plaited into a tight, rose-shaped spiral, showed off the colourful dimension of the blonde beauty's flaxen locks and complemented her complexion. The intricate hairstyle also served to frame and accentuate Nicole's sculpted facial features with wisps of honey-gold hair kept loose by having them brushed off from the feature chignon.
However, Nicole Kidman wasn't the only star from the silver screen to pull off the plaited hair trend in Cannes.
The Great Gatsby's leading lady Carey Mulligan also sported an interesting woven up-do and was accompanied by actress Zoe Saldana, model Fan Bingbing and singer Cheryl Cole who all looked lovely with their plaited locks.
