I have to admit, I've haven't been posting as much as I should be lately because I've been a bit preoccupied. Once I tell you why, I'm sure you'll excuse me. It was The Hunger Games! For the past week and a half the triology has completely consumed my life! Every aspect of it: social, work and sleep. The only positive side of finishing is that I can get on with my life now, but I'll never find a story that compares (and as a dorky English major, I've read a ton!). In honor of the time I devoted to the Games and my new found relationship with the main character, Katniss, here's a collection of haute braids I'm sure she'd approve of. Even though Katniss always simply braided her hair straight down the center of her back, a variety of braids popped up through the novels just as they did on the Spring 2012 runways. From fishtails to halos, designers like Michael Kors, Vivienne Westwood, Valentino, Moschino, John Galliano, Sass and Bide and Ruffian all incorporated braids into their final looks. Check them out and make sure you read The Hunger Games before the movie comes out!
