When we first spotted Florence Welch on the red carpet at the 2012 LACMA Art + Film Gala, naturally we were amazed at how her ravishing red hair stood out against that blue-purple Gucci gown. No Barney comparisons here! The British singer looked as if she walked right out of a classic fairytale with her pale complexion and milkmaid braid that she adorned with gold hair accessories.

While we've seen celebrities like Nicole Richie, Kristen Stewart and Kim Kardashian (remember her bridal headpiece?) reinterpret this trend over the years, Welch's whimsical take has inspired us to reach for hair jewels again.

Whether you'd like to pin back your curls using a hair clip like Iman or top off your updo with an elaborate headband like Keira Knightley, click through the gallery below for inspiration on how to pull off statement-making hair accessories.

  • Florence Welch

    Ever wondered how you could rework your favorite (albeit broken) chain necklace? Take a cue from the indie rock singer and wrap it around your milkmaid braids for an ethereal touch.

  • Iman

    As if the 57-year-old supermodel needed anything to complement her ageless beauty, she adorns her loose curls with an intricate hair brooch placed behind one ear.

  • Kristen Stewart

    The "Twilight" actress mixes glamour and grunge with a gold chain wrapped around her messy chignon.

  • Kirsten Dunst

    Dunst's hairdo could easily crossover into kiddie territory, however, she keeps it age-appropriate by pairing her floral headband with perfectly tousled hair and soft makeup.

  • Keira Knightley

    Leave it up to the face of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle to make a string of red berries not only look appetizing, but stunning. We also like how Knightley brings a bit of the reddish hue to her eyes and cheeks.

  • Paula Patton

    Mrs. Robin Thicke naturally glows, but our eyes are immediately drawn to her cascading curls that are pinned back on her left side with a glitzy hair clip.

  • Elizabeth Banks

    While Banks' textured French roll is far from a bird's nest, the metallic gold flock that's resting in her updo is well-placed.

  • Kate Mara

    The 29-year-old starlet accentuates her red carpet hairdo with a sparkly hair accessory that plays off the shape of her side-swept chignon.

  • Dakota Fanning

    We love how Fanning adds texture to her pin-straight strands with this gold rope headpiece. Extra points for the matching eyeliner!
