How To: Coco Rocha 2013 Met Costume Institute Gala

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute GalaCoco Rocha embodied punk rock couture at the Costume Institute Gala, an annual ball hosted by Vogue to celebrate the opening of the New York Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit. Coco was accompanied by Fausto Puglisi, creative director of world renowned fashion designer, Emanuel Ungaro.

To embrace the fashion world’s most anticipated red carpet event, Coco wore a one-of-a-kind Emanuel Ungaro by Fausto Puglisi gem encrusted leopard dress with a sleek, edgy hair look designed by celebrity stylist Veronica Chu for Moroccanoil.

“Coco’s dress is stunning. It is full of drama and excess – a perfect fit for the gala! Because of the high neck, we avoided big voluminous hair,” said Veronica Chu. “We opted for a clean low French twist ponytail accessorized at the back with the same firefly gems used on the dress. Coco usually doesn’t wear bangs, so we incorporated an extreme “V” fringe to add a punk rock edge, completing the hair look.”

How The Look Was Created:

“I washed the hair with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner, and then prepped it with Moroccanoil Treatment to add shine and smoothness.”

“Next, I applied one pump of Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse (Currently only available in U.S.), combing it through with my fingers, and then lightly misted the hair with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection (Currently only available in U.S.).”

“Using a Moroccanoil Round Brush, I blow dried the hair making sure the ends were especially smooth and straight.”

“Next I sectioned and flat ironed the hair for a super sleek look.”

“For the fringe, I sectioned off the first 1/3 of the crown and cut the hair into a deep “V” ensuring the tip was in line with her nose.”

“Next, I applied one pump of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to help smooth the hair as I pulled it back. I then bent the hair into a low French twist.”

“I secured the hair with bobby pins inside the twist, and let it naturally fall into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck.”

“I misted the hair with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium for a flexible hold.”

“To tie the look together, I added firefly gems just above the ponytail twist and then misted the hair again, this time with Moroccanoil Hairspray Strong to secure the hair.”

“To finish the look, I used Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to give the style a wet, shiny, punk rock texture.”
