Sofia Vergara Rocks Princess Leia Hair That's Perfect For 'Star Wars' Opening Night — PHOTOS
It might have been their red carpet debut as a married couple, but all eyes were on Sofia Vergara's Princess Leia-inspired hair at the premiere of the new Star Wars movie. A classic (and unconventional) hairdo can easily be made modern and totally wearable. If you're looking for a geek-chic coif to rock for the film's opening night, then this is the one for you.
The return of Star Wars brought along a new cast and a whole new era of obsession, but the iconic hairstyle lives on. Princess Leia is the galaxy's ultimate badass, so it's no surprise that an equally as fabulous woman would want to recreate her signature look to celebrate the newest chapter in the franchise. Vergara's double-bun style channelled the character's 'do with an elegant twist, which I believe is the perfect way to make a style seem modern and not dated.
Instead of wearing the two buns around her ears, she dropped them a few inches and pushed them to the back of her head, making for a classic up-do that worked perfectly with her timeless outfit. She paired the style with a figure hugging little black dress, a geographic winged eyeliner, and a red lip that would make any style warrior proud. Top it all off with statement earrings and a strappy gold heel, and you've got one Princess Leia look that would surely impress in this galaxy or any other.
A simple look is great from any angle.
Her outfit was great, but her hair really stole the show.
