If you had to narrow Abbey Lee Kershaw's multi-hyphenate career down to one thing, it would be stealing the show. Take, for example, her supporting but unforgettable role in the blockbuster film "Mad Max." Or her hundreds of runway appearances and campaigns featuring her signature gaze. On Tuesday night, she rendered every other guest irrelevant at the 2015 Amfar Inspiration Gala fashion show in New York by showing up with the most magical pastel hair, accessorized by statement ear and nose rings. Remember what I said about stealing the show? Oh, and she wore a custom resort 2016 micro-pleated jersey gown with cut-outs by her date, Alexander Wang.

The pink and turquoise colors are expertly blended into her hair, and since her roots and crown appear to be mostly unaffected, the look is both nonchalant and unusual. (Everyone from Hilary Duff to Julianne Hough has played with these colors recently, but over the entire head.) The ornate septum ring and textured earrings give her a goth-lite touch — as does the custom Wang dress. Like we said: goals.
