Some models are known for a signature beauty look. Where would Karlie Kloss be without her crop or Gisele Bundchen without her long tousled locks? But before these two came supermodel Linda Evangelista –– a style chameleon who “didn’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.” In the early 1990s Linda’s boyish crop made her career, but through the years she’s experimented with being a blonde, brunette, redhead and even a few colors not in the pantone book. We love Linda’s commitment to unique style and risk-taking attitude. Want some supermodel inspiration? Click through to style notes to see the ever changing style of a 90s icon. –– Michelle Rotbart

We love braids for lots of reasons. They’re youthful, feminine, timeless. They save bad hair days, make the most of grown-out highlights, and are impervious to all sorts of weather. The milkmaid braid, with its slim silhouette and head-wrapping elegance is one of our favorites. The halo shape works sleek or loose, and feels just as perfect with a pair of jeans as it does with a cocktail dress. Best of all, it’s crown-like outlines makes any girl feel like a royal princess. Read on for steps to creating the look. –– Laura Martin
