The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute and has been held since 1971. Since then the event has become known for it's status as the elite fashion event of the year and is attended by anyone who is anyone in the fashion and celebrity world. I looked at many photographs of some very stunning and eclectic mixes of hair and fashion, and after scrutinizing quite a bit, I narrowed it down to three impeccable looks that I believe stand out.
French actress, singer, songwriter, greenpeace activist, and Met Gala standout! What I love about Marion's look is how she worked with her short to medium tresses to create the illusion of a longer classic side swept look that is very fun, yet very French effortless as well. The deep side part with tightly pulled back side give the look a little asymmetry and interest. I love the low, face framing focus, and with a girl as pretty as Marion this is one look that I think people will be talking about for years to come.
Cara is an English model and socialite, and she can do no wrong! That goes for her hair as well. Another look with an exaggerated deep side part to add interest, and tightly pulled back on one side. Her choice of leaving her ends softer looking with some curl and height through the top are a nice take on some seriously 80's inspired hair. Cara can pull this look off effortlessly, and I would argue that this is a really simple way that most women can make a statement without much commitment.
Amber is an American actress who decided to put her hair completely up for the gala, and in my opinion an excellent way to offset her cute girl next door look. It has been awhile since I have seen someone wear their hair up completely, but Amber really left an impression on me with this take on a classic pull back. With tightly pulled back sides, she had some soft touchable height that really gave her a more serious, definitive look. If this looks sets the mood for the current generation of updo's, I am definitely in support!
