On the first Monday in May, celebrities, influencers, and pretty much everyone who’s anyone flocks to the 1000 block of 5th Avenue in New York City for the biggest fashion event of the year, the Met Gala. Being that the event is hosted by none other than Vogue’s Editor in Chief, Anna Wintour, it’s no surprise that the Met Gala red carpet is swarming with attendees primped to perfection and dressed in their best. And, while the clothes might get all the attention on this red carpet, we can’t help but stare at the gorgeous hair and makeup looks accompanying the avant-garde attire, which is why we rounded up the best beauty looks from this year’s soiree.
Considering this year’s theme “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons,” we expected to see a plethora of artistic and edgy beauty looks. However, nothing could prepare us for Lily Collins’s blunt bob and dark lip duo or Kylie Jenner’s Met Gala look, aka a new platinum hairstyle.
