Thanks to her supermodel background, Transformers: Dark of the Moon star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley continues to stun at every premiere this month, whether she's clad in a hip-hugging jumpsuit or a plunging-neckline gown.

The Victoria's Secret Angel usually sports a bombshell blowout on the red carpet, but at Sunday night's Transformers 3 UK premiere in London, the 24-year-old star switched it up and pinned her hair into an elaborate updo.

The hairstyle, which complemented her navy blue Burberry gown, looks like a clean, swept-back chignon at first glance. But from the side, you can see that it's not your average bun at all: braids of different widths are placed throughout the messy 'do.

Mini plaits are a cute and easy way to spice up a summer hairstyle. While feather extensions and neon highlights are popular now, braids don't require any extra accessories so you can keep your money in your pocket!
