Sophisticated, chic, and simple to re-create—Jessica Alba's super-sleek side pony wins our award for today's braid of the day.

The Machete Kills actress looked, uh, killer at the 22nd Annual Environmental Media Awards with her long brunette locks French-braided along the side and slung over her left shoulder. To keep the knotted twist in place, the actress fastened a few bobby pins through the loop.

The elegant hairstyle complemented her timeless menswear-inspired style—a Narciso Rodriguez pantsuit, along with Giuseppe Zanotti cap-toe pumps.

Take a look at Alba's full look, plus a few different angles of her prettily-done pony below:
