We’ve been telling you since back in September when we saw it all over the New York Fashion Week runways, piling your hair on top of your head is THE hot new hair trend to try. A brave few have dared to dabble in the high hairstyle, but maybe a little star power backing the ’do will give it some more leverage—instill some confidence in the masses, you know? Well, the high bun may have just gotten the celeb catapult it needed at Saturday night’s 2011 MOCA Gala when BOTH Gwen Stefani and Jeremy Scott did the step, snap, repeat on the event’s red carpet.
It shouldn’t come as that huge of a shock to see Gwen in the gravity-defying ’do since she did, after all, style the models in her Spring 2012 L.A.M.B. presentation in towering tresses. We love the elegant yet easygoing feel the hairstyle gives off, with the regal height paired with the natural anti-shellacking finish. It complements nicely the interesting neck action of her gown, which would have been lost with a down style. Our boy J.Scott, never one to disappoint, glammed up for the event with a gold lamé-esque (sidenote: YUSSS! #dead) single-button blazer and NADA but bare porcelain epidermis underneath. The gold shine perfectly matched Jeremy’s flaxen locks, curled and piled high atop his crown. The question remains, though, which über-important contemporary designer wore the ’do better? Let us know in the comments!
