Hailey Baldwin, 21, made a show-stopping entrance at the 2018 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC on May 7, where she opted for a Tommy Hilfiger gown that was sexy and chic. Of course we would expect nothing less from the fashionista, but there was something EXTRA special about her look for the star-studded occasion — her pink hair! This marks Hailey’s third appearance at the annual Costume Institute Benefit, and she opted for an avant-garde creation that was perfect for the theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

Hailey totally turned up the heat on the red carpet in a princess gown that fit her toned figure perfectly. She accessorized with a flower crown and opted for a pink lob ‘do that was both unique and completely glamorous. The thigh-high slit in her dress put her long legs on display as she polished off the outfit with silver lace-up heels and tons of rings. But her greatest accessory? Shawn Mendes!

Hailey and Shawn set off “new couple” alerts as they hit the red carpet arm-in-arm. After romance rumors surrounded them for months, the two seemingly confirmed their relationship once and for all! Of course Shawn and Hailey made an adorable couple, and we cannot wait to see more pics of them.

Hailey achieved her pink locks with Redken color and gloss. “Both Hailey and I wanted to make a statement with her color. Pink hair is perfect for spring, and it’s incredibly flattering to all skin tones,” Redken Influencer Ryan Pearl said of the dye job. “I like to think of hair color as an accessory: it can add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral look. I used a combination of Redken Shades EQ Gloss and Redken City Beats for this new hue.”

Hailey’s fashion choices are always on-point and we love seeing the stylish looks she serves up time and time again on the red carpet. Earlier this year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March, the blonde beauty looked drop-dead gorgeous in a sparkly nude jumpsuit complete with a plunging neckline and silver fringe. It was a challenging look to pull off, but Hailey NAILED it.

At the Met Gala last year, the star rocked a fairytale two-piece gown by Carolina Herrera, and she truly looked like a princess. She effortlessly rocked a full, layered tulle skirt and bustier, and Hailey revealed the design process took about two months. “There wasn’t a lot I wanted to change from the sketch Carolina sent,” she told Vogue at the time. “I had never done a puffy gown before, so I knew I wanted to do that! And I always love old-school photos of actresses like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, so I like to channel that vibe.” We think her ensemble this year was yet another home run!
