It’s the first Monday in May, and you know what that means... drumroll... THE Met Gala, of course.
Considered “fashion’s biggest night out”, we have total *heart eyes* over so many of this year’s celebs and socialites’ red carpet glam.
This year’s theme, An Anthology of Fashion – AKA, Gilded Glamour, is an ode to the period stretching from 1870 to 1890. An age of extreme wealth and excess, picture: corsets, long-boned bodices, and full-length gloves.
While we can’t get enough of the gorgeous gowns, there’s no surprise that we’re also OBSESSING over the fabulous hairstyles. Some classic, some fresh and out-of-the-box, some on theme, we’re here for it all.
So, if you’re gushing just as much as we are, keep scrolling and check out a roundup of our top picks...
