Leave it to Emily Ratajkowski to inject a dose of bombshell glamour into her Met Gala 2023 red carpet look. At tonight’s event, the star graced fashion’s biggest night in a dove gray Tory Burch gown with a plunging neckline and flowing train. She accessorized not just with dazzling diamond jewelry, but a major hair moment that added a referential element to her look.
A nod to this year’s theme, “In Honor of Karl Lagerfeld,” the major hair moment was crafted by hairstylist Jennifer Yepez, who paid tribute to one of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic beauty signatures: short, choppy fringe. Ratajkowski’s bangs, which were also inspired by a vintage Chanel runway image, were styled into a half-up with perfectly undone tousled waves courtesy of Great Lengths extensions and a dose of thickening hairspray for fluffy volume. The pièce de résistance? A black velvet bow serving as an undeniably Karl touch. “Making sure Chanel was incorporated into this look was important to us,” the pro hairstylist tells Vogue.
For makeup, Ratajkowski kept glam classic with soft-sculpted cheekbones and a winged-out smoky eye accentuated with an illuminating inner corner highlight. Leave it to EmRata to deliver a head-turning look that’s both sexy and sweet.
