For the majority of this evening’s Met Gala attendees, it seems thatcamp equals color. This saturated approach to the theme found a fan in Kylie Jenner, whose lavender Versace gown and matching larger-than-life feathered sleeves served as a jumping off point for lengths hued a pastel purple.
On the arm of a flaming-hot Kendall Jenner, the beauty mogul’s mane was separated in a slightly askance part and pulled pin straight, the would-be glamorous styling imbued with a welcome sense of whimsy by its inorganic shade.
The resulting aesthetic was akin to a showgirl-slash-mermaid. Jenner’s skin-skimming, shimmering, and strategically revealing dress mimicking scales, with a cut calling to mind Ariel’s iconic (and purple) seashell brassier, and finished in a hem of plumage, the billowing texture further enhanced by a high-impact set of boa sleeves.
For her part, Jenner kept her makeup entirely on-brand matte skin contoured and brushed in blush, lips pressed in a pinkish nude, eyes lined and lashed but the mane moment served as a welcome addition to the color queen’s ever-widening palette. After all, the scent of spring’s bloom is heavy in the air why not opt for tresses to match.
