Quannah Chasinghorse 2021 Met Gala look
19-year-old Quannah Chasinghorse made her debut at the 2021 Met Gala and certainly turned heads wearing a dress by Dundas X Revolve, styled by @tabithasimmons.
The model’s simple but flawless makeup was created by @gucciwestman using Westman Atelier clean beauty, details of which can be found in the caption of a preparation Instagram reel.
In charge of hair was professional @hollymillshair, who claimed that the trick to Chasinghorse’s shiny strands was heat protectant, triple flat ironing and taking her time.
Quannah even had family and friends helping her behind the scenes as a Navajo jewellery collection, which traditionally represents its wearer’s status, was flown out to dress the model for the Met Gala.
