I’m just going to say it – Mehr has it. She oozes an understated oomph. Hard to believe this is her first Cannes outing – she rocked that red carpet in her backless, blazing orange Tarun Tahiliani gown, sun-kissed skin and herringbone braid. Granted she has cheekbones that were hand-crafted by God, but her effortless sense of style is all her own. It takes a l’il practice, but here’s how to work that braid!

• Divide your hair into two equal halves.
• Take a thin strand from one section (say the left) and weave it over the left section and bring it under the section on the right.
• Do the same for the opposite (right) side. Envision your hair making an ‘X’.
• Continue to the length of your hair and secure.

Star product: A shine spray is perfect to give your braid a glossy finish. Take your pick from Kerastase, L’Oréal Professionnel, Tigi or Wella.
