New York’s night of nights is upon us, where all of the glossiest celebrities don their finest couture for fashion’s biggest party, The Met Gala. We’ve been pouring over social media for the last hour ‘ohh-ing’ and ‘ahh-ing’ over each and every glamorous shot, and admiring the handiwork of some of the worlds finest hair and makeup artists. This is our curation of some of the most shocking, amazing and simply unbelievable beauty looks to grace the red carpet.
Cara Delevingne’s Galactic Pixie Hair
Recently almost-bald Cara didn’t let her lack of hair impede on her beauty statement making. The model arrived with her head adorned in silver paint and sequins, creating the illusion of an other-worldy pixie cut. We’re not sure we’re brave enough to try, but props to her for pushing the beauty boundaries.
Selena Gomez’s Fuchsia Eye Shadow
We were able to tear our eyes away from Selena and new boyfriend The Wknd, just long enough to notice her makeup look was a stunning berry-fuchsia graphic eye. Paired with her relatively new bob, Miss Gomez is a beauty force to be reckoned with.
Rihanna’s OTT Blush
Rihanna had big shoes to fill after 2015’s show-stopping oriental Guo Pei number, but she seems to have managed to again, steal the show in a quirky Comme Des Garçon creation. We are, though, currently lusting her beauty wardrobe of the brightest pink blush that seamlessly blends into an OTT eye. Proof that beauty maximalism isn’t dead.
Kate Hudson’s Icy White Hair
Kate is usually a classicist when it comes to red carpet beauty, but we are amazed at her white blonde up-do she’s sporting at tonight’s event. Face framing fly aways soften the look, but it’s certainly a world away from her regular honey golden blonde, as we’re fans.
Lily Rose Depp’s Sharp Eye
Lily Rose Depp looks amazing in hot pink strapless Chanel. True to her gritty style, Miss Depp paired it with a fierce cat eye that was taken all the way into the inner corner of her eye. Worn with immaculate skin and a naked lip, save this for your next Saturday night out beauty inspo.
Rose Byrne’s Vintage Volume
Aussie darling Rose Byrne is an absolute showstopper at this year’s soiree, wearing a plunging red gown and the most voluminous locks on the red carpet. Her vintage style is sleek on the roots, before cascading out into a mass of brushed out ringlets that look as if they belong on the dance floor. Hair gel and hot tongs at the ready.
