The Met Gala, thrown every year by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a fundraising event for the museum’s Costume Institute in New York City. One of the biggest fashion events of the year, the Met Gala is attended by the biggest names in fashion, film, and music. Guests are dressed from head to toe by the world's biggest fashion designers, and this year on May 4, 2015 the VIPs did not disappoint. (and an excuse for fancy people to show off their fanciness). This year on May 4, the VIPs did not disappoint, being well aware that at the Met Gala, “it’s go big or go home.” Below our are favorite looks from the 2015 Met Gala.
- Queen Bey exuded royalty in a sheer jewel-studded gown by Givenchy, which her makeup artist wanted to “enhance with a bit of an anime vibe.”
- Hair: Soaring-for-the-heavens side ponytail with soft curls
- Makeup: Shimmery eyelids, thin liner and a wispy wing for a "deer in headlights" look
- Artist tip: To create both a very thin line and precise winged eyeliner, use a smooth and easy to use eyeliner that won't smudge. We love the Clarins 3 Dot Easy Dot Eyeliner.
- If you throw a ballerina, a Bond girl, and a Greek sculpture into a blender, this is the result.
- Hair: Slick, classic bun that lets her gorgeous features be the main event
- Makeup: Burgundy lips, bronzed cheekbones, eye-catching lashes and liner
- Artist Tip: Stick to a creamy but matte lipstick like the Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Lip Color.
- Diane looks like she just emerged from a nap in the meadow (and then got a few touch-ups from her fairy stylist).
- Hair: Partial updo with whimsical waves and fresh flowers
- Makeup: Slightly winged liner and red-orange lips that pop
- Artist Tip: Use a natural hold hairspray to keep your hair up all night without looking like a helmet. We love the Living Proof Restore Instant Protection hairspray.
- "All I have to say is red dragon," says Mary Phillips, Lopez’s makeup artist. Rawr indeed; “the way she looked tonight," Jenni Avines adds, “will be the reason that ‘J.Lo, met gala, sidebutt’ search exists.”
- Hair: Blowout with a subtle wave, swept off the face in an effortless fashion
- Makeup: Mix of reds, oranges, and peaches and a subtle “popsicle mouth” effect
- Artist Tip: Get that J Lo glow by keeping the skin soft and luminous with a subtle glow. We love Guerlain's Previous Lights Rejuvenating illuminator concealer to not only conceal dark spots but also highlight the cheekbones and bridge of the nose.
- “When I saw the dress, I knew I wanted to stay classic,” makeup artist Jenn Streicher mused, “as Emily is such an archetypal beauty, and her gown embodied that with its minimalistic silhouette yet highly embellished design.”
- Hair: Full-bodied at the crown with an elegant bun tucked away at the nape of the neck
- Makeup: Deep raspberry lip, luminous cheeks, and a slightly smoky eye
- Artist Tip: For an easy slightly smokey eye, we love using a single creamy eye shadow to blend from lash line to crease. One of our favorites is the Diorshow Mono Long Wear Eyeshadow.
