The Met Gala is most notably known as a star-studded evening filled with glitterati and paparazzi honoring a designer of choosing, and this year’s honoree was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcon.  As daring as the fashion choices were (as to be expected with such an eponymous designer), we saw everything from peacock-adorned dresses to wearable forms of art such Rihanna’s sculptural, multi-layered gown.  With such an outlandish and exaggerated theme, it would only be expected that hair and makeup would be be competing to be outrageous and forthright as well.

With texture trending, there were a surprising amount of slicked center-part bobs, which were a nice breath of fresh air.  Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid were those who opted for the classic style, while others such as Rose Byrne and Gigi Hadid took a more tousled approach paying homage to natural textures.

Even more daring, was Zendaya Coleman who stepped out in more of an editorial-inspired shoulder grazing, three-dimensional texturized look.

Gearing up to more jaw-dropping looks were those such as Kate Hudson, who donned a silver-bleached  exaggerated top knot and even more daring was Cara Delevingne with what seemed to be a silver-painted, bedazzled freshly painted buzzed head.

And the most Avant-Garde of them all?  Katy Perry, who ditched the hair-scene overall by covering her locks with a red voluminous veil.

So might you ask yourself our favorites over here at Style Noted Towers?  Lets start with Lily Collins’ blunt, dark brown bob and Rihanna’s piece-y top knot with textured bangs.  We also were a big fan of J-Lo’s flowing locks that made us reminisce of repunzel.

I had the special opportunity to attend a preview of China: Through the Looking Glass, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute yesterday. With its 140-plus-piece collection of ready-to-wear, haute couture, traditional Chinese arts and textiles, and films on display, the exhibition is truly spectacular. Paralleling the glamor of the exhibit was the celebrity crowd on the red carpet leading up to The Met Gala last night. It’s great to see true beauty on the red carpet––we certainly need to celebrate something. There were lots of great styles on the scene, everything from polished updos to flowing locks, and even some crazy headware ( I’m talking about you Sarah Jessica Parker).

Shorter we go. Joining the likes of Rita Ora and Ginnifer Goodwin, British-born beauty Lily Collins has chopped off her bob, going for a playful and chic pixie cut. Pixie cuts are a trendy, fun and flirty alternative for spring, especially when worn with a bespoke fringe, tight nape, and loose ends that tousle, swish and swoop. Learn about getting a fashionable pixie in the notes.

In the seasons of spring and summer we all love tousled, rolled out of bed, carefree hair. This prim and proper look from Lily Collins provides the perfect contrast to those styles, offering something more demure for professional engagements, or to help you feel ladylike and bashful. The head-hugging shape accents the beautiful, feminine curvature of her head, and the controlled side-sweep draws attention to the sparkle in her unusual eyes. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld for the Barrie Knitwear fall campaign, wear this style when you want to appear reserved and respectable. For tips, click style notes.
