Get The Look: Jourdan Dunn’s Met Gala Cornrows

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Jourdan Dunn for the ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 4) in New York City.

“I was inspired by the cut outs and crochet lacing on Jourdan’s Burberry dress. It inspired me to mimic the pattern by designing cornrows going on a diagonal and while also embracing Jourdan’s natural hair texture with a great heat free hairstyle. I finished off the look by putting it in a modern ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lacy prepped Jourdan’s hair with Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash to help lock in moisture into her hair before adding the braids.

After blow drying her hair with a Harry Josh Pro Blowdryer, Lacy braided Jourdan’s hair using a little Oribe Rock Hard Gel to help with frizz.

Once Lacy was done braiding she finished off with a little Shine Serum with Argan Oil by Pantene.

Models @ The 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

The models also had their moment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), some strutting to the beat of the theme better than others.

Karen Elson: One of the most extravagantly attired models, Karen truly embraced the ‘costume’ in the Costume Institute Benefit Gala in her Dolce & Gabbana ballgown spectacle featuring an ornately embellished and gilded bodice with matching cuffs, and an explosion of red tulle. Her elaborate gold headpiece also gave Sarah Jessica Parker’s own topper a bit of crown competition. This was the Chinese princess moment of the night.

2015 Coachella Music Festival Style Roundup

Coachella 1

When it comes to the Coachella Music Festival, boho style reigns supreme—right down to the ubiquitous flower crowns. This past weekend brought out a full range of Coachella cool-kids who marched to the beat of their own hippie drum in Indio, California.

Kendall Jenner: Infusing her Day 1 Coachella style with decidedly western appeal, the model paired her Derek Lam 10 Crosby Spring 2015 suede vest with a striped bikini top, ripped jorts, and Saint Laurent snakeskin booties. A tribal collar necklace and stacks of bangles took the look to the next level with a typical fringe hobo bag rounding it out.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Channeling her inner cowgirl during the fest and at the Forever 21 BBQ, the Brazilian supermodel naturally wore a skin-is-in look anchored by her Forever 21 suede fringe halter top and teeny cutoff denim shorts. I loved the addition of her turquoise jewelry, tall cowboy boots, and wide-brimmed cowboy hat for plenty of kitschy fun.

Gigi Hadid: Rocking another look with plenty of fringe benefits, Gigi was spotted on Day 2, where she added chains and charm to her ensemble consisting of an ASOS fringe suede collar, black cutoffs, a Guess body chain, and H&M ankle boots. With her long blonde windswept waves, she managed to put an adorable spin on Coachella dressing.

Jourdan Dunn In Alessandra Rich – Club Ten

Jourdan Dunn In Alessandra Rich - Club Ten

Jourdan Dunn enjoyed a night out with friends at Club Ten on Friday (March 13) in London, England.

The British beauty, known for her love of revealing mini frocks, wore an Alessandra Rich Fall 2015 sailor jumpsuit on this occasion.

I love the charisma imbued into this beautifully tailored look via the pinstripes, making this an instant classic where she’s just oozing panache.

Amping up the look with a touch of luxe to the look via the gold chain belt, the model styled her look with black pumps and a simple blue Sandro duster coat.

Balmain Fall 2015 Show & After Dinner Party

Balmain Front Row

Balmain presented their Fall 2015 collection during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday (March 5).

Kim Kardashian: Not quite content with the attention she currently receives, the reality TV star used this occasion to showcase a new platinum-blonde hairdo (which I’m certain is a wig) while wearing an all-black look from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

Jared Leto: It seems like Jared had the same idea as he also used this show to showcase not only his blonde hair but also his shorter style. His front-row look was a tad confusing with its part-military, part-schoolboy, part-snow-bunny mash-up. What used to be quirky has started to become comical.

Emily Ratajkowski: Going for style over theatrics, the ‘Gone Girl’ actress wore a heavily beaded ivory and black frock from the Resort 2015 collection, which was sexy without being revealing. It looks like she’s finally found a happy medium.

Models @ 2015 Elle Style Awards

Models @ 2015 Elle Style Awards

You were very much underwhelmed by the models at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, so let’s see how those supers fared at the 2015 Elle Style Awards on Tuesday (February 24) in London, England.

Cara Delevingne: Known for her preference for suits on the red carpet, the model channelled her inner Dita Von Teese on this occasion, wearing a sultry long-sleeve black gown by Vivienne Westwood. Going the distance, she styled the look with a diamond Messika necklace, screen-siren waves and a plump red lip.

Isabeli Fontana: I was blown away by the Brazilian model in her Ralph & Russo Spring 2015 Couture gown, having seen it sweep down the runway just a month ago. I love the airiness, the seductive sheer elements and of course the pretty floral appliqués. Factor in the bold violet lip and braided hairdo, and this was one of my favourites on the night.

Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

On Friday (February 13) Fendi celebrated the opening of their New York flagship store during New York Fashion Week.

Rihanna: The singer, who designed a 3Baguette and micro baguette in aid of her Clara Lionel Foundation, wore a bronze leather Fendi archive dress styled with a pink chinchilla coat and Manolo Blahnik sandals. The look would’ve worked better sans coat.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress opted to go sans fur wearing a Fendi Spring 2015 look that was a feast for the eyes with its many colours, fabrications and layers. The smoky eye was perhaps too heavy for my liking, but I’m too distracted by her custom 3Baguette bag and stunning sandals.

Hailee Steinfeld: My first thought was that it was refreshing to see the young star in colour, then I realised she does often embrace colour but not always as boldly as this Pre-Fall 2015 look. A part of me feels there is too much going on, but the right side of my brain loves it from head to toe.
