Kacey Musgraves Goes Barbie With Blonde Hair at Met Gala 2019 [Pictures]
Kacey Musgraves attended the 2019 Met Gala in New York City on Monday (May 6) night with a striking new hairdo! The country star went blonde for the big event.
To preview her look, Musgraves tweeted a Barbie doll makeup stand and Barbie doll pink sunglasses ... but no fans actually thought that she would become Barbie! Musgraves exited her hotel donning wavy, blonde hair, while her outfit consisted of a bright pink hair dryer purse and pink shades. The dress itself is reminiscent of Barbie's hot pink leather jacket.
Musgraves paired her dress -- designed by Moschino, People reports -- with a pink fur shawl. After stopping to pose for quick pictures with fans, Musgraves jumped into her hot pink car with the top down and rode to the gala.
During her music career, Musgraves has never drastically changed her hairstyle or color permanently. A majority of fans' reactions to her new do are positive, loving her Barbie-inspired look.

The Met Gala is a fundraiser that benefits New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. Donations from the event benefit the Costume Institute sector (fashion department). Each Met Gala, there is a theme that attendees are asked to base their red carpet look upon. This year's theme is "Camp: Notes on Fashion."
The co-chairs for the 2019 Met Gala include Musgraves' former tourmate and collaborator, Harry Styles. Other co-chairs include Vogue's Anna Wintour (who serves as a chair every year), Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele, Lady Gaga and Serena Williams. This marks Musgraves first time attending the fashion gala.
