The beauty inspiration at Mara Hoffman’s Spring/Summer 2016 Fashion Week collection came from an unexpected source — Willie Nelson! His double braided pigtail hairstyle served as Mara’s take on classic Americana, and it’s a look we’ve already seen celebs sporting.

We can always count on Mara Hoffman to give us a good braided look to copy backstage at New York Fashion Week. But this time around, she showed us a much simpler style that Khloe Kardashian and boho-babe Vanessa Hudgens have already mastered. Get the exact backstage how-to, below!

Kanye West is coming under fire for his Yeezy Season 2 for Adidas line because as Kim puts it, he separated models based on ‘light,’ ‘medium,’ and ‘dark’ skins tones to create a gradient affect. But do you think this was wrong of him to do?
