Lily Collins rocks the Breakfast at Tiffany’s updo

This is the most elegant throw back ever!  

If you’ve been following us closely, you will already know that Lily Collins has been quite the hair chameleon as of late – experimenting with bright red hair on the red carpet, and a thick new fringe for Paris Fashion Week! And now it seems the actress has decided to dip her toe into the vintage hairstyles pool, too.

The star debuted a stunning Breakfast at Tiffany’s updo on Instagram yesterday, and we instantly fell in love. So, if you can’t wait a second longer to see it for yourself, then scroll below to get the lowdown on Lily’s elegant ‘do!

Audrey Hepburn’s iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s updo made some serious style waves during the 1960s, and it’s still garnering attention today – and we can see why!

This updo really is the epitome of elegance and sophistication, as well as holding an air of timeless refinement, that has a universal appeal.

With that in mind, it’s no wonder Lily Collins chose to debut a similar-looking hairstyle for the LACC gala event last night.

Her brunette hair was styled into a stunning bouffant French twist, and her face-framing layers were tucked neatly behind her ears. Isn’t this just the perfect vintage hairstyle for a gala event? We think so!

If you’re going to try this look for yourself, we’d suggest using a healthy dose of TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray to hold your fabulous hairdo in place all day and night.
