Actress Drew Barrymore stepped out in a chic new plaited look last night, showing she's streets ahead when it comes to hair fashion, the Mail reported.

The 34-year-old movie veteran reinvented herself just in time for a round of promotional interviews ahead of the premiere of her new film Grey Gardens.

Drew showed off the intricate Grecian style hairdo - an updo was at New York's ABC studios to record an appearance on show Live with Regis And Kelly! yesterday.

Maybe she was inspired by singer Jessica Simpson, who debuted her own take on the braided look over the holiday weekend.

The 34-year-old actress was in town to promote new movie, Grey Gardens which premieres on cable channel HBO Saturday, April 18th.

Dressed in a sleek striped monochrome shift dress, accentuated by a pair of flame red peeptoes shoes, smiley Drew looked slim and toned as she was seen leaving a television studio in New York on Monday.

Drew stars alongside actress Jessica Lange in the riches-to-rags story of two charming eccentrics who were relatives of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.

The HBO film is based on a documentary made in 1975 by Albert and David Maysles, who spent six weeks with the reclusive mother 'Big Edie' Bouvier Beale, played by Lange and daughter 'Little Edie' Bouvier Beale, played by Barrymore capturing their everyday life in its raw, uncensored moments.

Grey Gardens charts the two Beale women's extraordinary bond, and why they chose to live in squalor and isolation in a decaying, 28-room house in East Hampton until someone finally notified Jackie O of their condition.

Drew, was a fan of the documentary, and upon reading the script had a passionate desire to play Little Edie.

I would have done anything for this part," she told television show Entertainment Tonight.

'I studied; I read everything; I lived in Edie's world.'

Drew was so determined to get the role she promised director/writer Michael Sucsy: 'I will do everything in my power [not to disappoint you].'

In order to fully inhabit the character, Drew says she didn't talk on a mobile phone, watch television or read or listen to anything anything that Little Edie hadn't seen or heard.

'I went into a total monastery and didn't speak to any friends for three months,' she said.
