It has been a busy week for Gigi Hadid! After walking several runway shows for New York Fashion Week, the 26-year-old supermodel made a solo appearance with a red retro-inspired ponytail at the Met Gala on Monday.

Opting for ‘60s-inspired glamour, Gigi looked regal in a simple black-and-white column gown that clung perfectly to her hourglass figure.
A glamorous nod to American fashion, the custom Prada gown features a sleek column silhouette with a strapless corseted bodice and a dramatic thigh-high slit in the back.
Underneath the classy gown, Gigi wore a black bodice, which matched her semi-sheer black tights and black leather opera gloves.
Speaking with Vogue, Gigi described her outfit as “an ode to simple, well-made fashion.”

The mom-of-one debuted a fiery red hair color, done by colorist Keith Shore. Hairstylist Esther Langham then pulled her tresses up into a retro high ponytail with detachable extensions cascading down her back in glamorous waves.
Staying true to her vintage look, makeup artist Erin Parsons glammed up Gigi with classic makeup that featured black cat-eye liner and powder blue eyeshadow. She also wore a matte nude lipstick with matching blush and contouring powder.

In a quick interview with Met Gala livestream co-host Keke Palmer, Gigi revealed that she wanted her Met Gala appearance to inspire her daughter.
“She’s one next week, and I feel like I’ve been on mama duty. I’ve been at the farm with her every day in my sweatpants and our matching messy buns. I feel like tonight I’m showing her what it means to dress up and own it and have balance. I think finding that in your life is when you really feel like you’ve stepped into womanhood.”
Styled by Mimi Cuttrell, Gigi dazzled with a showstopping Riviera diamond necklace and a large pair of diamond stud earrings, both from Jacob & Co. She also accented her ponytail with a crystal-embellished black barrette from Prada.

Before walking the Met Gala red carpet, Gigi Hadid strutted her stuff for multiple labels during New York Fashion Week.
Last Friday, she was spotted outside Tavern On The Green after walking for Michael Kors’ fashion show. She went the casual route, wearing a $125 black “Shorty” crop polo shirt from Bleu Salt with gray-colored wide-leg The Row jeans.

Shielding her eyes behind a pair of black sunglasses, Gigi wore her hair in a sleek side-parted ponytail and added a pop of bold red lip color to her look.
She then carried her essentials in The Row N/S Park black leather tote, which you can get for $2,750 at Net-A-Porter.

A day before, Gigi attended the Daily Front Row’s eighth annual Fashion Media Awards at the Rainbow Room, where she presented the Fashion Legend award to Carine Roitfeld.
Gigi oozed dark glamour in head-to-toe Givenchy. She went braless underneath a $4,595 black leather jacket with graphic cutouts and a plunging neckline that offered a glimpse of cleavage and paired the look with a $1,630 pleated, asymmetrical skirt with a bandana print.

Earlier, Gigi hit Moschino’s baby-themed fashion show in a strapless pastel dress that’s printed with cartoon animals. The curve-hugging frock features a one-shoulder puff sleeve as well as a thigh-high slit, giving the playful number a touch of sexiness.

Gigi glammed up for the evening with red smokey eye-makeup and matching blush and lipstick. She then coiffed her tresses up into a chic bun with several tendrils framing her beautifully made-up face.
