Her brunette locks were parted in the middle and slicked back into a low, stylish ponytail. 

Kendall opted for minimal accessories to allow the dress to be the main focal point, and added a pair of dangly, gold earrings for a flashy touch to the look. 

The star’s makeup was classically done, and comprised of a layer of black mascara along with smoky eyeshadow. She added a light, pink blush to better accentuate her cheekbones, and opted for a matching, rosy tint to her lips.
