The fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala has left us swooning for days. The dresses, the hair, the jewels…but something was different. The jewels we were seeing weren’t hanging from necks, they were styled into hair! The eye-catching sparkle of a bejeweled barrette, headband or accessory can bring your entire look to a new level, as it did for quite a few fashionable attendees at the Met Gala.
Sassy songstress Fergie donned a beaded headband that was draped around the crown of her head. It featured strands of beads that cascaded into her hair, giving her an ethereal look.
Kate Hudson took the glitz up a notch, featuring a bejeweled, sun-shaped brooch placed about just an inch back from her hairline. The jewel, mixed with her long natural waves and strapless dress, gave her a Greek goddess glow.
Undeniably one of our favorite looks of the night, Aussie import Isabel Lucas gave jewelry a whole new meaning when she took a designer necklace and turned it into the perfect hair accessory. A mix of jewels and pearls, the necklace turned headpiece featured a pendant that fell at just the right spot on Lucas’s forehead for a Renaissance feel.
