Regina was the optime of class and style as she graced the grey carpet at the 27th annual AmfAR Gala wearing a custom dress by Schiaparelli Haute Couture. According to an Instagram post by the fashion house, the gorgeous gown was designed by Daniel Roseberry and featured a black bugle beads bustier and a black silk peau de soie grand volume skirt with a stole in black and white peau de soie.

 

The Oscar-winning actress’ look was complete with a super sleek, braided robe bun that was styled by celeb hairstylist, Lacy Redway. When creating the hairstyle, Redway knew she needed a look to compliment her couture gown and take her entire look to the next level. “Hydration was my crucial ingredient here,” Redway said of the style. “I knew I wanted to put Regina’s hair up because of the scale of her Schiaparelli dress and give a couture feel to her bun.”

The best part of Redway’s creation is that it was achieved using products that you can find at your local drugstore or Target – all under $20 – making it super simple to recreate for your own glamourous night out. Redway continued, “I started with Nexxus Weightless Style Prep & Protect Leave-In Hair Spray ($9.99 Target/Target.com) because hydration was a key step for me here. I knew I wanted to sleek her hair lock in the moisture. First I added Nexxus Curl Define Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner ($14.99 Target/Target.com), rich in silk protein which has specific benefits to her curl pattern. Then I followed up with TRESemmé Curl Hydrate Curl Cream ($5.99 Target/Target.com) right before brushing her hair up with gel.”

She added, “after her hair was brushed up, I secured it with an elastic before creating her textured couture rope bun. The finishing touches are always key when I’m sending my clients off to the red carpet. A little more hydration after the gel with TRESemmé Flawless Curls Hydrating Hair Oil ($5.99 Target/Target.com) and flyaways handled by TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray ($7.69 Target/Target.com).”

Beauties, will you be recreating this look this summer?
