You don’t have to be moving to an ice palace in order to rock a superlong braid inspired by Frozen‘s Elsa anymore. Gigi Hadid, Kourtney Kardashian and Naomi Campbell are all taking the look for a swing, proving that it’s amazing (and totally appropriate!) on women of all ages.

Hadid hosted Sunday’s Much Music Video Awards wearing a variety of outfits: A chic red suit, a silver cropped top/hot pants number, a sexy white Victorian-style blazer and more. But the one thing that remained more or less constant: her extra-long blonde braid, which cascaded down to her waist and gave her a fierce, ice-princess vibe that contrasted with her sexy suits.

But the ethereal look isn’t only for cartoon characters and 20-somethings: 37-year-old Kardashian rocked a similar look at her daughter Penelope and niece North West’s joint mermaid birthday party. The star paired her single extra-long French plait, which happened to match Penelope’s, with a bright peach one-piece bathing suit and cutoff denim shorts.

And if you thought Elsa’s braid brigade stopped in the 30s age bracket, think again. The perpetually trendsetting Naomi Campbell, 46,originally made a case for the look at the CFDA Awards a few weeks ago. Her waist-length megabraid was paired with glamorous bangs and a gorgeous black Brandon Maxwell gown, proving that it’s perfect for any age or occasion.
