Met Gala Beauty: Buns Everywhere

And no, we don't mean Jennifer Lopez's famous tush.

There were a few major hair themes on the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala. Sleek center- and side-parts, for one, and buns, for another. The latter was done in a tasteful manner — i.e. no chopsticks holding them up!

Ashley Olsen went the most literal with the “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme, securing her mane into a samurai-esque half-up, half-down topknot. Everyone else — including Alicia Keys, Poppy Delevingne and Emily Ratajkowski — went a more traditional route.

Emily Blunt’s hairstylist, Laini Reeves, said she went with a slicked-back, chic roll to keep the attention on the back of Blunt's Prada cape. And, said the stylist, "it pushes the limits, as Anna [Wintour] wants, but in a way that is complimentary and modern, simple but striking."

Amanda Seyfried and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley went sleek with their low buns, while Lizzy Caplan’s was smooth and up high on her head. Jennifer Lawrence’s topknot, which was paired with her Prada gown, was a looser, slightly messy version.

Vanessa Hudgens and Keri Russell were other stars who opted for a version of a chignon. There’s a reason why it’s a classic all over the world.
