Number 5 on our reasons of “Why We’re Excited for the Met Gala” was “Big Hair.”

And leave it to Nicole Richie to not even make us wait until the red carpet to fulfill our wishes.

PHOTOS: Check out all the star arrivals on the PEOPLE.com homepage starting at 7 p.m.!

The star left her hotel in an elegant, embroidered white gown with a high neck, which she offset with a seriously hair-raising do: an up-combed pompadour spray-painted silver that contrasted with her bronze skin and dark wine lips.

If things are getting this funky before the night even begins, we cannot wait to see what’s on its way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art as we speak.

Tell us: What do you think of Richie’s hair?
