There’s a Simple Reason Irina Shayk Chopped Off Her Hair For the Met Gala
Irina Shayk was full of surprises at Monday night’s Met Gala. Known for her edgy street style and super-sleek bun, the model transformed into a flower girl for the event and casually debuted a fresh pixie cut in the process. While Shayk is often seen sporting the classic off-duty model look – long hair slicked back into a bun – her new hair is reminiscent of the ’90s, particularly drawing inspiration from the iconic crop made famous by supermodel Linda Evangelista.
A huge chop is a big decision for some, but that didn’t seem to be the case for Shayk. “Something has to come dramatic to the Met Gala, and we decided it’s about no makeup and fun hair, and here we go,” she shared on the red carpet, wearing a gorgeous Moschino creation adorned with flowers. She certainly brought the drama with her new pixie, cut and styled by celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh.
