TGATP skipped both the McQueen press preview and the Met Ball this year. Anything Alexander McQueen makes me think of my Mom’s passing and how Alexander offed himself because of the pain of losing his, a sentiment I can, at the moment, totally relate to! But rumor has it that Michelle Williams looked spectacular on the red carpet last night before the event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Wearing a beautiful Miu Miu gown accented with metallic bronze and gold swallows with jewels from Fred Leighton, all eyes were on her fabulous platinum hair, which was both luminous and dramatic.
Celebrity stylist Peter Gray shared how he created the eye-catching style for Michelle’s short cropped hair:
“The dress was so beautiful with those bronzes and golds that I wanted to reflect that in her hair. I didn’t want it to look styled or even blow-dried, so I created the whole effect on freshly-shampooed, naturally-dried hair. My inspiration was a modern-day Jean Seberg with a “Breathless” nuance, but with a soft, sexy and defined texture.
So I started by trimming and squaring Michelle’s hair around the temple areas, leaving the overall outline of her haircut untouched. This made the style look a bit more unusual and further brought out the beautiful features of her face. Next, I poured a bit of Moroccanoil Light, for fine and light-colored hair, into my palms and applied it on the root areas all over the head to separate the strands, to help the hair look more substantial, and to give it a look of effortless volume. Use of the oil, gave the hair a gorgeous texture and prevented it from looking flat. In addition, Michelle’s hair color had depth and vibrance, instead of appearing fine or smooth.”
