This year’s Met Gala theme was Manus X Machina: Fashion In an Age of Technology. The red carpet was full of metallics, intricate embellishments and clever cutouts. In fact, the clothes were so interesting that hair and makeup were easy to miss, but a closer look revealed some stunning styles including these looks written about by my fellow blogger, Michelle Rotbart. But most memorable for me was Rita Ora’s sleek bun topping a geometric arrangement of mirrors. This style was perfect for the red carpet, but could also add some sparkle to your festival attire or even top your favorite date night ensemble. Best of all, this look is a cinch to recreate; learn how in the notes. — Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

Showing just a bit of something feels erotic: off-the-shoulder tops, peep-toed shoes, long, slit skirts. This principle applies to hair too. Pulling hair up completely to reveal the face and neck doesn’t feel nearly as erotic as leaving it loose, but tucking it in such a way as to cover most of the neck and the side of the face, but revealing the ear. The result is surprisingly flirtatious, even alluring, but in a way that feels unintentional, almost accidental. Try it on your next date. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Gigi is the inspiration behind many great modern hairstyle lessons, but one of the best is from her date the other night with rumored new beau Zayn Malik. Fashion’s golden girl kept it low-key by twisting her usual free flowing tendrils into a textured low chignon with two face-framing pieces hanging out. No elaborate updo or overdone makeup on Gigi. Leave the complex primping for a night out with the girls because the start of a budding romance should always be chic and easy.
