OMG, Jessica Chastain Just Showed Up to the Met Gala, and She's Bleach Blonde

When looking at images from this year's Met Gala, I almost scrolled right past Jessica Chastain. Just another celebrity with gorgeous long blonde hair—nothing to write home about! Then, I did a double take. Could that be Chastain?

The famous redhead debuted platinum blonde hair at the Met Gala, which is fitting considering this year's theme is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty." Attendees were told to dress in a way that honored Karl, but it looks like Chastain decided to extend that theme into the realm of beauty.

Her platinum mane is reminiscent of Lagerfeld's icy hair, and she even sported oversize shades, which were a key part of the designer's signature look. It's this kind of playful homage that makes the Met Gala so much fun. 

Chastain's hair was done by celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora using Hair Rituel by Sisley-Paris products. "I created gentle bends with a low heat to mold the hair to exhibit a Karl Lagerfeld elegance," says Campora. I'm sure Chastain will return to her signature fiery red hair in no time, but for tonight, the platinum couldn't be more fitting.
