Just a little bit ago, big name stars from the movie, "Eat, Pray, Love", showed up to the New York movie premier and every single one looked their red-carpet best! Slinky gowns, sophisticated minis and sparkling jewels were abundant, but the most noticeable thing about this movie premiers red-carpet fashion? Everyone looked perfectly coiffed with shining hair and natural waves. While chignons are always pretty and appropriate, wearing your hair down for a formal event gives your look a vibe of youthfulness and sensuality and waves add a natural, sex-kitten appeal. Who do you think let their hair down the best at the New York movie premier of "Eat, Pray, Love"? Was it star of the show, Julia Roberts, who turned up in sleek shining tresses, or acting veteran Phylicia Rashad and her shoulder length swirls?
