Whew, These Met Gala Beauty Looks Were Worth the Wait
There may have been a four-month date change in this year's annual Met Gala, but there's one thing that always stays the same come fashion's biggest night: the over-the-top beauty looks hitting the red carpet. The dress code this time around was "American Independence" — and it's fair to say no one was quite sure how each celebrity would interpret the theme. Luckily, celebrities delivered in the beauty department.
There were retro hairstyles that gave a nod to the '60s and '70s. There were glitter nails decals and loads of shimmer eyeshadow. You'll even see a hair color change, or three. From first-timers like Storm Reid and Met Gala cochairs Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Timothée Chalamet to return attendees like Kristen Stewart and Gigi Hadid, the evening is already proving to be packed with enough hair, makeup, and nail inspiration to fill an your mood board through the end of the year.
