The Woman In Gold actress, 36, teased fans on Instagram prior the A-list event. “Upside down about my hair for #metball @zac_posen @djquintero,” Cruise’s ex-wife captioned a wild photo of herself in a headstand while seemingly getting her hair cut. “Dare me….. #metball @alternahaircare @olay @zac_posen @djquintero,” she added alongside another close-up photo of scissors near her wet locks.

Keeping to the theme of "China: Through the Looking Glass," Holmes’ dress featured an “auspicious cloud” embroidery, which was shaped like a ruyi sceptre and means "as you wish” in Chinese.
