On Monday in New York, Alexa Chung went vintage in her fashion and beauty choices at the Met Gala. The British presenter, who was amongst the best dressed Brits, teamed a 1960s-inspired Marc Jacobs leather dress with a backcombed hairstyle. Sebastian Professional stylist Diego Da Silva, who created Alexa's look, was "inspired by the 1960s feel of dress and wanted to revisit a shorter haired, rock and roll Brigitte Bardot version of modern times." To recreate the Brit's hairdo for yourself, follow the step-by-step instructions when you read more.
