The one question I have to ask is: if Reese Witherspoon's revivalist 60s, sophisticated ponytail up-do is becoming to her, is it an easy look to pull off? I lean in the direction of no.

Mila Kunis' look on the other hand seems much more versatile, although if your makeup is not modern enough, it might make you look too dated and overly classical.
Cate Blanchett's revisited, mussed-up garçonne cut is conceptually great, but here again, I think it's tricky to pull off the frazzled-yet-polished look while remaining on the side of polished.
