Fashion gets technical at the Met Gala 2016

This year’s Met Gala event had a fashion meets machine theme…

 

And the extravagantly attired stars all paired their often rather outlandish frocks with suitably pared back, understated hair, bringing smooth, straight and shiny style to the fore.

Our current hair crush, style chameleon Kylie, rocked this gorgeous swingy bob – the perfect complement to her intricately beaded gown.

Another amazing beaded gown, but Poppy paired hers with super straight platinum tresses for a look we really like.

1emily-ratajkowski-met

Emily’s striking black and white paneled gown needed nothing fussy on the hair front. She opted for a simple style, pulled back to the nape from a slightly off-centre parting.

We are so in love with Taylor’s bright blonde shag. This girl just gets edgier with time!

zendaya-met-gala

One of our very favourite looks of the night. Zendaya slays in this covetable shimmering bronze dress, but it’s her hair that really catches the eye. We predict a major resurgence of the bowl cut in the near future!

1Kendall-K1kendall-pony

When your outfit is this spectacular, the only way to go with your hair really is sleek and simple. Kendall looked stupendous in this colourful gown, but it was definitely her hair that sealed the deal.

1alessandra-ambrosio-met

We don’t often see Alessandra with poker straight locks, but we like! The shoulder skimming length is great, too.

bey-met-gala-600

Another long, smooth look – this time it’s Beyoncé who’s working the super straight tresses to full effect. She’s been embracing curls and braids a lot lately, so it’s good to see her championing another hairstyling technique.

1Nicole-kidman-met

Did the invite state ‘beaded gowns only’? Nicole stole the limelight in this glorious celestial number but, of course, we were more interested in her hair. Heidi braids have never looked so glamorous.

1kerry-washington-met

Last week Ms Minogue was sporting curls and now Kerry’s joined the twirly movement, we’re wondering if this is a trend that’s set to stay. The dark cherry red panels look fab with Kerry’s complexion.

Well, that’s our round up of our fave looks of the night. Which star’s style statement did it for you?
