David Bowie’s campy sex appeal—both androgynous and flamboyant—is an iconic representation of the hyper-glamorous camp aesthetic. That’s what makes Ziggy Stardust a rich source of fashion inspiration for the 2019 Met Gala’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme. Kristen Stewart’s Chanel-inspired haircolor by Danny Moon (@majormoonn) and her piecey, feathered out pixie by celebrity stylist Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir) is the Bowie-inspired fashion statement the world needs. Get the look below! 


Style Notes: “Camp is all about elevating a look and making it flamboyant,” said Adir. “I wanted the look to communicate that camp, in a way, is suspending the reality. The inspiration was ’70s Bowie and the obscurity of gender, playing into both masculine and feminine extremism. We also wanted to create a look that incorporated classic Chanel red.” The look merges the ’90s heartthrob floppy hairstyle with a nod to the ’70s glam of David Bowie. From mids to ends, the hair was dyed into a classic Chanel red hue inspired by the nail color ‘Arancio Vibrante.’”  


Manufacturer: Virtue, @virtuelabs

Products Used



Start by creating a strong middle part and saturate the hair with Virtue® Volumizing Primer to add memory and definition. 


Color Tip: Creative colorist Danny Moon created the multi-dimensional color—dark underneath, pale yellow in the front and Chanel red through the mids to ends. He added Virtue® ColorKick™ (the first-ever human keratin hair filler) to every color formula to protect Kristen’s hair and maintain shine.


Then, blow-dry using a Denman brush at the root and rough-dry from the mids to ends to keep her natural texture.


Apply Virtue® Polish Un-Frizz Cream to the ends to create a piecey effect and separation between the dark and light colors. 


Finish by applying Virtue® Finale Shaping Spray all over and use a diffuser to lock the style in place.
