Fergie Fishtail Braid Ponytail

Posing more like she was on the red carpet than at a charity race, Fergie was glammed up yesterday at the Youth Run for Japan in Santa Monica, California.

The Black Eyed Peas songstress had her lengthy locks pulled back into a dramatic fishtail braid for the two-mile run to raise money for the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake Fund -- an event that her husband, Josh Duhamel, organized.

The tight ponytail was a perfect complement to her equally tight black warm-up suit. Add to that her dark sunglasses and signature black fingernails, and the 36-year-old (who just celebrated her birthday the day before) looked like a total rock star as she hit the streets to run with 4,000 other participants.

While we're used to seeing Fergie with her honey-highlighted blond strands worn long and wavy, we think she looks equally as sexy -- and sporty -- with them pulled back into a braided ponytail.

Either way, we "Gotta Feeling" that all eyes were on her at this race!
