With every red carpet appearance, Janelle Monáe delivers a look that is the epitome of hair accessory goals.

This past awards season, the Hidden Figures actress wore everything from bobby pins to googly eye craft stickers throughout her coif, proving that creativity doesn't stop with show-stopping gowns. And tonight (May 1), she continued that standout tradition while attending the 2017 Met Gala.

Keeping in line with the Commes des Garcon theme, Monáe delivered Black Swan ballerina vibes in a sweeping Ralph & Russo gown, complete with white tulle and black feather appliques on the high neckline.

The actress and singer's bedazzled pixie, styled by Nikki Nelms, left quite the impression.

Her hair, a slicked down pixie styled by Nikki Nelms, was accented with bejeweled baubles, while a ruby red lip provided the perfect pop of color. Per usual, Monáe's beauty look lands atop our best of list, and becomes instant spring makeup and hair inspo.
