The elite Hollywood accessory

Molly Sims, Rihanna, and other stars know how to look royal with a diadem

Posted on

Sure, there are other ways to hold you hair in check, like, say, a scrunchie. But nothing says Hollywood royalty like the glitter of a diadem — perfect for the celeb looking to confirm her status among the entertainment elite.

1. Molly Sims The Las Vegas star bands up with such grace, you almost believe you could rock one too. Then again, the former swimsuit model could make culottes look good.
2. Lindsay Lohan Trust La Lohan to tart up a classy trend with fingerless gloves and stacked bangles. What is this, lady, Flashdance?
3. Juliette Lewis The oft-banded actress is known for her signature hippy-dippy look, which she maintains — just jeweled up a notch — even for special occasions.
4. Lucy Liu Come January she’ll lead ABC’s Cashmere Mafia, but in the meantime, with that tiara (and fierce look) she could get crowned head of any gang.
5. Rihanna This year’s golden girl continues to wow with her performances — American Music Awards, anyone? — and her style. All hail!
