As the A-list set began making their way along this year's striped carpet in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for2023's Met Gala, all eyes were on the looks. Rita Ora arrived in Prabal Gurung and in mere moments her statement nail look began trending on Twitter. Gisele, Dua Lipa and Naomi Campbell all wore vintage Chanel, and then there was Jessica Chastain.


Famed for her signature red hair colour, Jessica caused a stir when she arrived sporting an entirely new look. Swathed in black and teasingly raising a large pair of sunglasses, Jessica revealed herself to the wall of photographers, and the onslaught of camera flashes ensued. Her famed red lengths had been replaced with a sheet of gleaming platinum blonde ones. Whether the look is temporary or a longterm commitment isn't clear yet, but whether for one night only or the next few months, Jessica has entered her platinum blonde era with a bang.

Jessica Chastain Enters Her Platinum Blonde Era For This Year's Met Gala


A new look like Jessica's doesn't come easy. You need an experienced colourist and a lot of time on your hands to bleach, tone and condition your way to the sort of creamy colour and shine that Jessica had on display for this year's Met Gala, and you have to be ready for a whole new level of at-home hair maintenance. That sort of hair colour requires diligent purple shampoo application - yellow tones need not apply - and if you've bleached your way to that shade, you're going to need show your lengths some serious TLC. Deep conditioning mask anyone?
