…that are actually perfect IRL!

Last night’s Costume Institute Gala in New York City, popularly known as the Met Gala, is a major night on the fashion industry’s calendar. And with this year’s tribute to avant-garde Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, of Comme des Garcons, guests dressed to impress during their walk up those iconic museum steps in their best eyebrow-raising ensembles. Here, we turn the spotlight on the hair (‘cause that’s what we’re about) featuring 5 mane moves that fit right in on the red carpet—and in real life…

1 Rihanna’s topknot bun…on theme and on target with her architectural ensemble!

2 Zoe Kravitz blonde pixie…a short sensation!

3 Mary J. Blige flaunting a stylized Mohawk/Pompadour coif combo.

4 Zendaya’s voluminous style silhouette was dubbed “disco hair” by some…We call it entrance-making style at its best!

5 Halle Berry’s bejeweled chignon is truly glamorous!
