It happened: Bella Hadid brought Princesscore to the 2022 Met Gala. The supermodel and entrepreneur showed up on the red carpet with a very Bridgerton-inspired coiffed half-updo, which she wore with an embellished black corset wrapped in a black lace skirt.
Hadid’s regency-era hair was created by Hadid’s go-to hairstylist Evanie Frausto, who shared behind-the-scenes footage of the supermodel’s look. Frausto used Redken products on her lengths to keep everything in place, from the two minuscule side braids sweeping towards each ear to the curled side bangs, middle part, waist-length twists, and coiffed pouf. On Frausto’s Instagram Story, viewers also got a peek at the back of Hadid’s hairstyle, which actually featured a delicate baby braid wrapped around the pinned-up half of her mane. Seriously... Phoebe Bridgerton who?
The model’s Gilded Age hairdo paired perfectly with her ensemble, which was designed by Burberry’s creative director Riccardo Tisci. While Hadid’s glam was reminiscent of the regency era, her outfit also evoked contemporary punk rock vibes. The combination of the corset, chains, and sexy lace stockings — adorned with delicate pearls around her ankle — seamlessly married classic beauty and contemporary edginess, which is something Hadid always does particularly well.
To complete her full-on Gilded Glamour look, Hadid kept her makeup simple and understated. The standout feature was her cheekbones, which were dusted in rosy pink blush.
But really, if anyone was going to somehow pull off regency-era meets gilded glam meets modern-day rockstar on one of the most anticipated red-carpet events of the year… it would be Bella Hadid.
