The annual MET Gala is always crawling with celebrities in the most incredible designer getups. As much as we love their outfits, we love seeing their hair and makeup even more! This year’s theme was “Punk: From Chaos to Couture.” We were immediately excited to see how grunge/ punk rock these otherwise glamorous celebrities would get for the occasion. Here are some of the most memorable looks of the night.
Miley Cyrus very recently got a nod as the year’s sexiest woman. She showed up in a fishnet dress and 90s punk-rock hair that was bleached with dark roots and very gelled. This 90s look wasn’t great in the 90s and it isn’t great now. While we didn’t love Miley Cyrus’ look for her hair and we think that other celebrities’ interpretations of “punk” looked much better we did enjoy the bold red lip reminiscent of the 90’s Cindy Crawford.
Glam diva Jennifer Lopez showed up looking dewy as always with a really pretty smokey eye. What made her look rock in our books was her faux hawk. It was edgy and cool, but still looks glamorous and wasn’t too over-the-top.
Nicole Richie definitely made you look twice to make sure you were seeing things correctly. Her blonde locks were a grey/lilac color. Her hair was extremely textured and pulled back with lots of volume. Her lips picked up the subtle purple hue in her hair with a wine-colored lipstick. Her eyeliner was kept simple. We also thought her eyebrows looked great. For this occasion, we would give her look an A+. Her dress was also gorgeous.
Kristen Stewart always wears interesting smokey eyes that make her green eyes pop. This night was no different with her burgundy smokey eyes and slicked back hair. We love this look!
Emmy Rossum looked so cool. We love her grey lids with black liner all around and a smudged (but still very neat) brown exaggerated cat eye extending outwards. The focus was definitely on her eyes, but her eyebrows also looked incredible. Once you stop staring at her awesome eye makeup you notice how intricate her braided updo/ topknot is, which is also very cool. We love this!
Minka Kelly looked beautiful with dark, matt lips, defined brows and dewy skin, but what we loved more than that was her hair. We think that this would be a gorgeous wedding hairstyle. We love the braid and the stunning hair piece. Although she didn’t look as punk as some other celebrities, we thought that she looked great!
Cara Delevingne had beautiful smokey eyes and dark, defined brows. We love the black liner around her whole eye with a beautiful grey-brown smokey palette used above and below the eye. The skin and lips were kept simple so that the focus was on the eyes. We also liked how her hair was left down with one side tightly braided and the other side was worn down, straight and textured. We thought that this was a really cool and more wearable “punk” hairstyle.
