Hi Ladies,
Been a minute...I sometimes miss the days when all I was was a preggy housewife, lounging at home and things have changed!!Oh well the only constant in life is change and I welcome this change...enough of my blabbing! Find below, the looks that caught my fancy from this year's MET Gala (you know I draw major hairstyle inspiration from this event, see my last year Met Gala Post - HERE

Sooo moving on to the looks;

SJP's updo was so big and so shinny/healthy looking that once I saw it, it grabbed my attention!!

Then the ever regal Ivanka Trump was just glorious in this beautiful updo wrapped around with a big braid (you know I LOVE my braids);

 Sticking with braids and such, I loved Gabrielle Union's flat twist do;- I shall recreate;

This look by Brie Larson- two small knots was simple and cute;

Resse Wither Spoon and Tina Garn blew me AWAY with their old Hollywood styled shinny bouncy but controlled faux bobs!! Just BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Reminded me of a faux bob I did for a wedding some time ago :)

Sorry I have tried to rotate it to no avail- I give up!!

RiRi's shaggy updo was also quite nice...

Finally I have to give the trophy to Janelle Monae- LOVEDDDD this look from Head to toe, felt like a really trendy spin on a Kenyan Warrior- Where my Kenyan Ladies at!! Janelle was ticked all the right boxes in my opinion, here she is- GBAM!!

So that's that for the MET Gala!!! Since we are talking about happenings in America, I am glad to announce to you my dear American readers that THERE IS A GIVEAWAY!!!
