Although our heads explode every time The Duchess of Cambridge makes an appearance, she had a surprisingly different hairdo for a red carpet appearance in London last night. Kate actually swept her headline-making mane into a loose yet gorgeous ponytail. Instead of the sleek, slicked-back ponytails we tend to see on the red carpet, Kate's was elegantly loose and accented with a black velvet ribbon. Is this a sign that Kate is pushing the envelope with her red carpet styles? We're not sure, but it's definitely not stopping us from looking at her royal ponytail from all angles.
