If there is anytime to ever pull off a shocking hair or fashion moment on a red carpet, the 2017 Met Gala is it. Fashion’s biggest night brought out some of the most avant-garde look we’re sure to see this year, but Jaden Smith‘s mane move might be the most talked about.

The actor walked the carpet in all-black Louis Vuitton with a handful of golden locs by his side. Jaden had to chop off his signature dreadlocs last month for a role in the upcoming movie Life In A Year. By the previous pics, we knew he wasn’t happy about the chop, but we didn’t think it was that devastating.

What do you think of Jaden’s mane move?
