Nicola Coughlan just attended her very first Met Gala (an invitation to rival any Bridgerton ball, may I add) and absolutely killed the red carpet in a custom Richard Quinn floor-length pink gown. Her look was finished with Swarovski jewellery and, even though they're hardly visible, the all-important Jimmy Choo heels. Penelope is living the high life, we've gotta say.

Although the actor couldn't make the Bridgerton premiere late March due to unfortunate circumstances (aka, Covid), this look has certainly made up for a lifetime of gala lewks. Including the Featherington Ball (see: season two, episode eight).

Our favourite aspect of the look, bar the feather details, floral jewels, and full-length gloves (OK, we love it all), has to be the hair look. It may not seem as out-there as say Kim Kardashian's bleached Marilyn-inspired 'do, but it is a dramatic change from her signature bob cut.

And to fuel our Met Gala beauty dreams, Nicola made an Instagram video documenting the entire getting ready process featuring the whole hair, makeup, and styling team. Watch below:

Celebrity hairstylist Halley Brisker, who has worked on the star's hair before, left no crumbs when it came to this incredible hair look. In his IG post, Halley shared the effortless, ethereal, and feather adorned tresses which fit perfectly in line with this year's 'Gilded Glamour' theme. And luckily for us, he also added that the extensions were "blown out and styled with the Cloud Nine premium collection".

To finish off the hair look, Halley added some volume and subtle movement using the Cloud Nine Waving Wand, £119, gently wrapping medium to large sections of hair around the wand and sliding each section off once it has heated through.

Making this look even more spectacular, Jason Hogan, hair colourist at Josh Wood Atelier, posted a video sharing the process behind creating the custom hair piece for Nicola.

Ahhh, to have a glam squad on speed dial. A girl can dream...
