Leave it to a true queen of style to make an unforgettable statement on the red carpet. At the 2016 Met Gala, Diane von Furstenberg wore butterflies in her hair and delivered one of the night's most unusual yet head-turning moments. The iconic designer covered her curly locks in a colorful array of monarch butterflies and proudly proclaimed her plans once she got to the Met ball.
"Last selfie before Tequila," von Furstenberg wrote on Instagram, her hair covered in gorgeous blue, green, and purple-winged butterflies. Incorporating the majestic insects to her elaborate coif is highly reminiscent of Philip Treacy's butterfly hat for Alexander McQueen. However, von Furstenberg made the look all her own by wearing it with a sparkly black and white column gown that mixed classic elegance with a whimsical flair.
The "Manus x Machina" theme of this year's Met Gala inspired several attendees to wear futuristic designs, with metallic palettes and architectural silhouettes. Also, lots and lots of sequins. Von Furstenberg's decision to go with something different is why she's always been a regarded as a fashion trailblazer. Kudos, Diane!
