Yes, Gigi Hadid has tread into redhead territory before. But consider the Met gala 2021 red carpet an even more dramatic red hair debut. The supermodel arrived at tonight’s event in head-swiveling fashion, calling to mind cartoon character Jessica Rabbit not just with her strapless, high-slit Prada gown and leather arm gloves, but with a new set of deep crimson waves that colorist Keith Shore describes as “violet red.”
Hairstylist Esther Langham sculpted Hadid’s ginger lengths into a thick, high-slung ponytail, topped off with a crystal-embellished Prada logo barrette. Playing off the vivid hue, makeup artist Erin Parsons gave Hadid a set of ’60s-leaning, powder blue smoky eyes accented with classic cat-eye flicks and fluttery fringe courtesy of several layers of Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara. Sculpted dusty rose cheeks and a nude pink pout finished the va-va-voom look. It’s never a surprise to see Hadid—a seasoned Met gala attendee—turning out a showstopping beauty look. Her new red hue, whether temporary or here to stay for the season, comes just in time for fall.
