May 8, 2018 - shirtdresses

There were countless crowns, tons of tiaras, a handful of heavenly halos, and a very bling-y pope hat ragged by nothing other than Rihanna on a red runner during a Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala. And yet, infrequently a kind tangle does a trick, as evidenced by Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge on Monday evening.

“People are customarily some-more open to holding risks during Met Gala, that creates it a good eventuality to play with a sequence of complicated and classical looks,” explains Bryce Scarlett, Moroccanoil luminary hairstylist. With a canary-yellow shirtdress by Ralph Lauren portion as a inspiration, a pro opted for a “simple, complicated take” on Sophia Loren, a iconic Italian bombshell who starred in The Priest’s Wife. Scarlett adds, “We kept a hair classical in a undying chignon with tallness during a climax and a Bardot bang.”

To get a look, he used a dime-size volume of Moroccanoil Treatment and spritzed strands with a feverishness guardian before operative Volumizing Mousse into roots. After floating hair well-spoken with a turn brush and rupturing a neat core part, Scarlett tucked strands behind a model’s ears to support a face. Next, he used Dry Texture Spray to emanate even some-more physique before pulling hair into a hack and jacket a tail into a low-slung chignon. Luminous Hairspray Medium acted as a finishing hold to secure a character in place.

Loren might have seduced a male of a cloth on a china screen, though Aldridge enchanted a masses during a Met Gala with a curled look.
