Every year on the first Monday in May, the most beloved A-listers arrive on the legendary steps of Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in the hopes of completely shutting down the carpet. And for 2023’s annual celebration, celebrities and top fashion designers in the industry were tasked with honoring a late great, with “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” as the theme.

The night featured countless nods at the silver-haired legend (with Jessica Chastain ditching her signature copper tresses for an icy blonde hue). But the reigning hair trend was, perhaps, Audrey Hepburn-inspired micro bangs, which were spotted on Emily Ratajkowski, Lily James, and Olivia Rodrigo.

Styled by hair guru Clayton Hawkins, the duo channeled the late Breakfast At Tiffany’s actor, with Hawkins noting via email that the look was meant to be “classic,” and was “a nod to Karl Lagerfeld and Old Hollywood, with a sleek bun with bangs in front.”

First, Hawkins brushed through Rodrigo’s hair with the Tangle Teezer Ultimate Detangler. Then, he coated her deep brunette strands with all things Dove (which include the Therapy 7-in-1 Miracle Mist and Brilliant Gloss & Repair Serum), before pulling her mane into a slicked-back bun. To finish, he topped the look off with some Extra Hold Hairspray à la Dove.

As for the glam, Rodrigo looked wide-eyed and youthful, with ultra-minimal makeup from YSL Beauty that featured a softly contoured eye and a natural, peachy lip thanks to celeb-loved makeup artist Nina Park.

Celebrity nail artist Yoko Sakakura completed the look with Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails in Aim High, press-ons with a glossy black finish.
