Braids: 1963 Cleopatra Flashback
I captured this picture from People magazine dated April 11, 2011 highlighting Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. The movie was a Fox studio production from 1963. This hairstyle is more than likely a wig, but the side plaits/braids caught my interest. Realistically, I would think that the gold hair jewelry would be too heavy on the hair, but the overall look is distinguished and a nice touch of texture to what would have been straight black hair.
