Keke Palmer is on a roll this year. The Teen Vogue January cover star’s latest feat was the Met Gala 2024 red carpet, and she took it on in style. The actor turned heads with not only her glittering gown but also her super high ponytail.

On May 6, the first Monday of the month, Palmer attended fashion’s biggest night of the year, the Met Gala, a fundraiser for the museum hosted by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. This year, the theme was “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” and the dress code was “The Garden of Time.”

Palmer’s interpretation of that included an ultra high ponytail. She wore super sleek long black hair with a luscious shine. She pulled her strands back and fastened it in a chic ponytail. In lieu of a hair tie, she tightly wrapped pieces of her hair around the base of her ponytail, adding plenty of volume to her hairstyle. For a little extra sparkle, she added gemstones that started near her eyes and extended all the way up to her scalp.

Palmer has been trying out various looks over the past year. Last month, she debuted an adorable short silk press bob. In February, she sported a faux septum piercing with a look inspired by Whitney Houston and Rihanna. Back in December of 2023, Palmer even went platinum blonde for a Christmas photoshoot.

So, it is probably safe to say that Keke Palmer is not afraid of trying out a new look! And what better place to sport a new look than the Met Gala? And, we can’t help but wonder if Palmer will have another look up her sleeve for the after party. We will be on the lookout for an outfit change, so be sure to check back here for all our Met Gala 2024 updates!
