How’s your week going? Scrolling through Met Gala pics still? Or just living for the Kim K memes? Either way, we reckon you’re still talking about Monday night’s Met Gala. It’s not just an event for the hot celebs in attendance, it’s an annual event for the fashion fanatics and celebrity enthusiasts who eagerly wait for their Instagram feed to refresh with red carpet looks so they can start rating outfit, hair and beauty choices – and maybe pass the odd judgemental comment…
We couldn’t resist getting some opinions from our industry friends on what looks they loved…
Paul Faltrick, GFC Hairdressing
“These 70’s style bangs and waves look incredible on Sienna Miller. She is the queen of effortless style. The strong blonde with a very slight root gives dimension to the colour and complements the whole look. I’d like to see more of this – less lived-in shades and more strong colours with beautiful styling and finish.”
We have to agree with Paul, Sienna is the queen of effortless and always looks beautiful. Absolute goals if you ask us.
Andy Smith, Hairslydz
“There were some great variations on ponytails and some really strong hair looks, as well as lots of high-shine finishes and a mixture of textures – all of which I love. There were also a lot of incredible hair accessories that added interest and excitement to what could have been quite average hairstyles without them – Gigi’s Prada pony cuff was a particular favourite!”
Gigi was never not going to look smoking hot was she? We are also a big fan of her new hair colour!
Charlene Malcolm, Francesco Group
“I’m in love with Billie’s hair and look – what a dress! The combination of two trend-led cuts – the bob and the shag – along with the platinum colour has created a beautiful mixture of softness and edge, while giving us all the Marylin Monroe vibes and completely complementing this year’s theme.”
We were certainly catching those Marilyn vibes from Billie, and enjoyed seeing her in a super glam dress.
Emma-Louise Cantwell, November Collective
Polished and neutral make-up was the winning look this year, which let the hair and outfits do the talking.”
Yes Emma! Less is more, and we’re here for that. So many statement outfits, we think its best to go more simple with your hair and makeup.
Christopher Laird, November Collective
“I love Megan Fox’s pin-up vibe, complete with micro bangs. Billie Eilish’s old Hollywood look, comprising of a peach Oscar De La Renta gown and platinum blonde bob, oozed modern day Marilyn Monroe glamour; you can really see how her style has evolved from teen pop star to show-stopping, confident young woman. And finally, of course, I have to mention Kim K’s floor length ponytail, too. What a masterpiece – and her makeup looked flawless beneath that mask!”
Megan Fox is a vibe anyway. If you didn’t have a girl crush on her before, we’re sure you will now! Billie’s Marilyn style seems to have really caught attention and got people talking, and well as for Kim… I mean we could write a whole story dedicated to her outfit…
Melissa Timperley, Melissa Salons
“Gigi Hadid’s colour was incredible. Such a gorgeous tone and moving us very much towards Autumn trends of going warmer and darker with the hair.”
Some serious hair colour inspo from Gigi, who’s thinking of AW21 colour change?
Erin Potts, Palmer Fisher London
“Imaam Hammam was my favourite look of the night, her natural curls look so beautiful and full of texture. The overall shape of the hair looks incredible and compliments the entire look so well.”
Yasss! What a queen. Imaam embraces her natural texture, wearing it in the perfect heart shape. Simply stunning.
And whilst we enjoyed everyone’s looks, a favourite for us has to be Kendall Jenner. Her Givenchy gown was incredible, a true masterpiece teamed with a statement choker and a simple up do. Classy! Now let us get back to LOLing at some more Kim K memes.
