More memorable hair and beauty moments from Met Gala’s past.
IMAN // 1996
Iman, 1996, ‘Christian Dior’.
The original and the best. Supermodel Iman showed naysayers (and fans, alike) how its really done… with this striking up-do and Dior ensemble. C’est tres magnifique.
KATE MOSS // 2009
Kate Moss, 2009, ‘The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion’.
In a look that would spawn countless knock-offs, Ms. Moss graced the carpet in this shimmering turban – the fabric of which matched her figure-skimming frock.
BLAKE LIVELY // 2013
Blake Lively, 2013, ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’.
A notable departure from her Gossip Girl blow-out, actress Blake Lively turned heads with this structured, bubble pony for Met Gala 2013. Princess Jasmine meets 90s girl band.
BRIE LARSON // 2014
Brie Larson, 2014, ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’.
Dubbed one of the most experimental hair ‘looks in Met history, Brie Larson sported this twisted up-do in 2014, finishing the style with a wet-look exterior and subtle side part.
KATY PERRY // 2016
Katy Perry, 2016, ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’.
Just like Kim, Katy too chose to bleach her brows for Met Gala ’16 (if there’s ever a time to do so…), rocking bold bangs and a sky-high, Harajuku-style bun.
ZENDAYA // 2017
Zendaya, 2017, ‘Comme des Garçons’s: Rei Kawakubo’.
Channeling her inner Diana Ross, Zendaya sported this soft and textured ‘fro at Met Gala 2017, in a look that celebrated both her roots and penchant for drama. Disco, disco.
GIGI HADID // 2017
Gigi Hadid, 2017, ‘Comme des Garçons’s: Rei Kawakubo’.
When Gigi steps out sans trademark blonde locks, you know she means business. For Met ’17, the supermodel’s hair was slightly darkened, asymmetric and perfectly disheveled.
CARA DELEVIGNE // 2017
Cara Delevingne, 2017, ‘Comme des Garçons’s: Rei Kawakubo’.
Few people can rock a shaved head quite like Cara Delevingne and for Met ’17, the model took things one step further: spraying her entire head with metallic silver paint.
JASMINE SANDERS // 2018
Jasmine Sanders, 2018, ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’.
One of the prettiest looks to grace the Met carpet, model Jasmine Sanders wore her hair in a low, textured braid, artfully ornamented with blood-red roses. Heavenly indeed.
KIM KARDASHIAN // 2019
Kim Kardashian, 2019, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’.
The brief? ‘California girl steps out of the ocean…’ A look achieved with characteristic finesse thanks in part to Kim’s hairstylist extraordinaire, Mr. Chris Appleton.
SOPHIE TURNER // 2019
Sophie Turner, 2019, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’.
All that glitters is apparently, Sophie Turner. For Met Gala ’19, the actress manifested futuristic fashion with a fresh (and oh so chic) glitter-clad slick back
LUPITA NYONG'O // 2019
Lupita Nyong’o, 2019, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’.
Ever the red carpet favourite, actress Lupita Nyong’o channeled the Queen of Hearts (or a drag Marie Antoinette?) for this look… complete with sky high texture and gilded combs.
