Met Gala 2019: Jaw Dropping Beauty Moments That We Can't Stop Thinking About
The Met Gala was established by fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert in 1948. To this day, the Met Gala is an annual fundraising event that benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute and the celebration of the institute’s annual fashion exhibit in New York City. Each year the Met Gala has a specific theme that guests are to adhere to. This year’s theme is Camp. According to Wikipedia Camp is “an aesthetic style that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value.”
Camp isn’t present in just the fashion looks that showed up on the pink carpet, but played into marvelous makeup and hair styles that we can not stop thinking about.
Game Of Thrones goddess and newlywed to Joe Jonas absolutely stunned on the pink carpet. Celebrity stylist Christian Wood put together her bold glittery, slicked back hair. Wood got his inspiration once he saw Turner’s outfit. He said with all the sequins he knew he had to incorporate some shine into her hairstyle. To get this look:
Actress and model Dakota Johnson showed up with gorgeous silver crown with pink eyeshadow that was shaped perfectly. Her lipstick played well into the overall vibe. This wasn’t as “out there”” as a lot of the Camp looks on the carpet that night, but it still turned heads regardless. To emulate this look check out:
Makeup artist Nick Barose is the creative genius behind Lupita Nyong’o’s Met Gala look. Barose knew that the Camp vibe was all about going over the top, playful and glam. So, the first thing that came to mind was drag queens - specifically the drag queen known as Divine. Some products he suggests to re-create this look are:
The Sun Is Also A Star actress, Yara Shahidi’s Met Gala look was inspired by stars and zodiac signs. Emily Cheng is the makeup artist behind her look. Cheng says that Yara is constantly talking about her zodiac sign, so it made sense to create a look around it. Yara is an Aquarius, so the gems resemble the flowing water that symbolizes the water bearer. To get this look:
Hailee Steinfeld looked like a real life doll during the Met Gala. Her gorgeous waves and bow look was created by hairstylist Ruslan Nureev. Carolina Gonzalez is responsible for Steinfeld’s glowy, glam makeup vibe. To get the look:
Gigi Hadid had one of the most striking looks of the night. This look stood out so well because of her long, white eyelashes. Makeup artist Erin Parsons crafted the eyelashes by using white feathers. She individually applied each of the lashes one-by-one. Her hard work paid off.
This Orange Is The New Black star dazzled with her beauty look. Her headpiece was created by Rinaldy Yunardi from Jakarta, Indonesia. Her bold lip, eye and cheek makeup played together beautifully. To recreate this look :
Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boyton looked ethereal. Her pastel blue hair was real and was from a color rinse according to her hairstylist Jenny Cho. Once Cho saw Lucy’s Prada dress she says that she imagined her as a fairy walking through a forest. Cho totally nailed her vision by adding the gorgeous pastel headpiece. Her makeup artist Jo Baker was inspired by chandeliers and pixie vibes according to her instagram (@missjobaker). To get the look:
Everyone was talking when Cardi B hit the carpet at the Met Gala. She showed up in a larger than life Thom Browndress that nobody could ignore. This dress was the inspiration for Cardi B’s makeup artist Erika La Pearl. She said that she did not want to overpower Cardi’s natural look and wanted to bring out her best features. For the look:
Can we say, “ iconic look”!? Lady Gaga took over the pink carpet with her flawless multiple ensembles and makeup look. Her makeup artist Sarah Tano went to great lengths to make sure she got it right. She says the balance between going all out for the Camp theme and making sure the look still translated beautifully took some work. Tano created a total of 20 looks to show Gaga’s team before Gaga and her team made the final decision. For the look:
