Cara Delevingne made an unforgettable appearance at the 2023 Met Gala, debuting a cropped grey hairstyle that left many speechless.
The model and actress, known for her otherworldly features and ability to pull off bold looks, looked especially magical with her new hairdo.
Her stylist, Danielle Priano, along with assistants Kelli Hoff and Anthony Perez, were responsible for creating this stunning look.
However, it was soon revealed that the new hairstyle was actually a wig.
In a clip shared by Danielle, we see the process of tucking Cara’s recently chopped blonde bob away, and the tones within the wig give it a mystical effect, even appearing green at times.
The grey hair complemented Cara’s enchanting look perfectly, making her look like a fairy that just fluttered onto the red carpet.
Her makeup artist, Hung Vanggo, struck the perfect balance with a smoky silvery eye that captured both light and darkness. And with accessories like her diamond cross and leather gloves, Cara’s look had a fairy edge that was nothing short of stunning.
Many took notice of the hair transformation, which was ethereal in nature, and quickly drew parallels between Cara’s new look and her role in the fantasy series, Carnival Row, where she plays a faerie.
Fashion enthusiasts were particularly impressed with Cara’s take on the grey hair trend, which was different from fellow attendee Cardi B’s grey Barbie beehive.
While Cardi’s look had a doll-like surrealism, Cara’s gentle, feathery crop was delicate and dreamy.
The grey hue only enhanced her already striking eyes, making her look even more ethereal.
The fashion community couldn’t stop raving about Cara’s look, with many taking to social media to express their awe.
One Twitter user said, “Cara Delevingne at the Met Gala looking like an actual fairy, this is what I live for.” Another user tweeted, “I never knew I needed Cara Delevingne with gray hair until now. This is the most magical thing I’ve ever seen.”
Gray hair was definitely not the trend that was expected to take over the Met this year, but Cara’s stunning look has many on board. It’s hard not to feel captivated by the mystical charm that she exudes, and it’s safe to say that Cara’s look has raised the bar for all future Met Galas.
