Hailey Bieber’s Met Gala gown may have been topped by a feathered confection, but above neck, the model kept things characteristically subtle (read: seriously chic). The model leaned into the clean lines of her floor-length Saint Laurent—which featured a dramatic slit and a low back for a barely-there effect—with her brunette hair combed into a slicked and sleek midi knot courtesy of hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, paired with rose-dusted cheeks and muted mauve lips. Though the feathered cape offered an homage to Jerry Hall, the pared-down beauty was all down to Bieber, who has proved herself a master of minimalism.
The evening’s red carpet comes nearly a week after Bieber took to Instagram to share the details surrounding her recent mini-stroke and subsequent surgery. And tonight, Bieber reaffirmed her decision. “Obviously it was a little bit hard to talk about just because it was a really scary experience, but I felt like if I could bring light to the situation […] I just wanted to share my story and it actually felt freeing for me to be able to share it,” she said on the red carpet.
