In a blue ball gown adorned with little flowers, she looked every bit the princess, fitting perfectly into the theme of the MET Gala 2024. However, not Sydney Sweeney's outfit caused the biggest sensation but her hairstyle. The actress swapped her blond locks for a jet-black bob.

This year's MET Gala, the pinnacle of fashion celebrations, occurred on May 6. Guests invited by Anna Wintour were required to adhere to a dress code titled "The Garden in Time," which directly relates to the exhibition "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York.

There was no shortage of airy fabrics, ubiquitous plant motifs, and a hint of fairy-tale charm on the famous stairs. Among those dazzling on the beige-green carpet was Sydney Sweeney. It was her third invitation to the MET Gala. After all, her career has skyrocketed since "Euphoria," and her chosen outfits often leave people in awe.

Her gown was somewhat reminiscent of the tulle outfit Ariana Grande wore at the Grammys 2020 and had a bit of the Cinderella-style Zendaya showcased at the MET Gala in 2019. Sydney Sweeney also opted for a ball gown cut with a corset top, sleeves light as a breath of wind, and an impressive, flared, and sprawling bottom.

The young actress chose a creation by Miu Miu, in which white, blue, and turquoise intertwined, creating an effect of extraordinary lightness. The dress mainly attracted attention because of its three-dimensional application in the form of small flowers.

Did Sydney Sweeney change her hairstyle specially for the MET Gala?

Sydney Sweeney wouldn't be herself without a bit of contrariness. She complemented the fairy-tale gown with long, leather gloves. But that's not the end. The star, known for her blond curls, decided to shock with a rebellious, jet-black bob with a wayward fringe. A real transformation or maybe a wig?
