Whilst statement jewellery has been on our radar for some time, and headgear was a huge hit on the spring/ summer 09 catwalks, the combination of the two is officially the new way to accessories your evening look.
From pretty, floral or gilded hair bands, to twenties style, flapper-esque beaded bandoes the look is the fashion insider's fresh new way of embracing summer's embellished and jewellery trends now.
The only decision you need to make is which head girl you are.
If like Mischa, in her floor length Ellie Saab couture gown you want to channel the fashion princess look (also currently being championed by Victoria Beckham in Milan) opt for a gilded or jewelled floral headband. For an edgier, Gothic princess take on the look take your style cues from model Sasha Pivovarova who iced her an all black ensemble with a 20's style bando, or could it be necklace?
For something in the middle of the two, Dasha Zhukova's mutli-strand beaded headband was perfect for adding subtle sparkle to her look, and the cleverest way to wear jewellery when you won't notice a necklace with a one shoulder dress.
