Despite the revolving door of hair transformations, some celebrities are more resistant to change than others—which makes it *extra* interesting when they do color outside of the lines. Here, 12 stuck-in-their-ways famous people who got unstuck for a minute.
Her M.O. might be smoky eyes and a nude lip, but for the 2008 Met Gala (theme: superheroes), VB turned up in with an uncharacteristically red mouth and bright eyes. Alter ego, indeed.
The uzh, pronounced "yooj": a self-drawn feline flick, rosy cheeks, and a pinky-nude lip. The variation: lighter on the eyes and a darker lipstick shade, which she's been favoring lately.
You can't kill the pony, but you can add fringe to it.
As she ages—or rather, doesn't—J.Lo has gone for uptown-lady vibes over the oiled-up glam she's been known for in the past.
Note: The Met Gala is the celebrity's favorite testing ground for a far-out new look. Take Kim Kardashian, who tried bleached brows and color contacts versus her patented tawny, sculpted face.
Left: goth-inspo gone right. Right: polished-up, spit-shined ingenue.
Rarely seen without a punchy red lip, Rita Ora proves she can do both with a milkmaid braid and a nude formula.
Amber Rose with hair!!
Gwen Stefani wouldn't be Gwen Stefani without a matte red and some sort of pompadour situation, but she also wears shimmery champagne well—*so* well.
Another makeover tied to the Met Gala, but this one might have been more significant than most. Because after, nothing—not just beauty-wise—was ever quite the same again.
Bangs be gone?
