Find some of our recent faves below, and try out the twist for yourself (minus the embarassing dance moves).

Portman accessorized her pregnancy bump with red lips, diamonds and a preppy French twist, adding just a touch of volume (are we spotting a trend here?). The Black Swan seems to be glowing, and having no qualms about talking about her sex life, and we couldn’t be happier for her.

We couldn’t help ourselves with this one – we had to add in the creepy Vogue Paris/children playing in their mother’s clothing/far too much hair and makeup going on editorial. But, we have to admit – we’re loving the French twist pompadour this girl is rocking. It may be a bit much for her age, but she’s officially competing with Willow Smith on levels of awesome.
