Russell Westbrook shows to the Met Gala with a new hairstyle

After two whole years, the Met Gala was finally back in New York. Often consisting of some of the biggest celebrities, the Met Gala is a must watch. Held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this year was no different. Be it actors, pop stars or even sporting superstars everyone can be seen in the Met Gala.

This time it was Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry who showed up in the Met Gala. While Westbrook showed up in a skirt a couple of days ago, Brodie stuck to a simple tuxedo this time around.

But as the case has been with Russ, he somehow always stands out. This time it was because of his hairstyle. Boasting a blue-coloured dye to his hair, Westbrook had multiple white stars on his head. The 32-year-old certainly drew many eyes this time around with his new hairstyle and the internet hasn’t stopped raving about the same.
