Celebrities honoured Karl Lagerfeld's legacy with gorgeous hair and makeup, including embellished veils, retro high ponytails, and creative headpieces.
It's the first Monday in May, which means the annual Met Gala is here once again. Last year, the theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” was all about American fashion, with gilded glamour as the dress code. This year's theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” is an ode to the late designer known for his work at Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, and his namesake line, Karl Lagerfeld. The dress code, then, is fitting: in honor of Karl.
Last year, celebrities took the gilded glamour theme in many different directions, including tons of intricate headpieces, so it's interesting to see how folks interpreted the night's theme. As always, we've rounded up our favorite beauty moments, so, scroll and indulge in all the eye-catching looks from the 2023 Met Gala.
Cruz stepped onto the Met carpet looking ready to say, “I do.” The actor stunned in a white ball gown with embellishments and a matching veil. Her hair was slicked back into a large chignon under the veil that covered half her head.
The Abbott Elementary actor did not come to play with her first appearance at the Met Gala. Brunson looked gorgeous in a bedazzled gown with a lengthy train and mesh gloves, but her hair and hat were the real showstoppers. It's hard to tell where her hair ended and the towering hat made of hair began. But you can spot the kinky texture of the hat. Her slicked and swooped baby hairs were as dramatic, if not more so, than the rest of her hair.
Ratajkowski brought wispy bangs with loose waves to the event. Her bangs ended about an inch above her arched brows, but this fringe wasn't really short enough to be called “baby bangs.” EmRata's smoked-out eye makeup and pink cheeks looked gorgeous with her glossy pink lips.
The “About Damn Time” singer looked like a beauty in a black gown with pearl accents. Her hair was piled on top of her head in a towering, messy, curly bun. She took us back to the 2000s with those curls and blunt, straight bangs that stopped mid-forehead.
Graham took hair inspiration from the 1920s and 1960s for her hair. Her flipped, shoulder-grazing bob was a clear ode to the '60s, and the intricate finger waves made us want to put on a flapper dress.
Adut Akech was giving Edna Mode a run for her money with this super-short bob and baby bangs. She paired the edgy bob with hunter-green matte lips.
FKA Twigs's hair was so elaborate that it almost feels insulting to just call it a hairstyle. Her hair was slicked back, with pieces looped around her head in an abstract pattern.
There is not one thing we don’t love about Gigi’s look. The silver shimmer shadow paired with the sharp feline eye and nude lip is serving every type of met gala goodness that we are here for.
After trippling her met gala outfits, this hairdo has got to be the star of the show. Channeling her inner Audrey Hepburn we couldn’t be more smitten!
Vanessa was giving sleek-back realness with that ballerina bun and that powerful and bold thick black liner that made her entire attire pop in all the right places.
Priyanka came to slay the carpet with her side swooped-detail orientated bun, that was just doing all the right things.
It’s all about the drama darling! Those nails did all the talking and we are LIVING. FOR. IT!
Michaela could not strut her natural cornrows with a gold-hued glam any better in our opinion. It’s giving luxurious, dripped in gold vibes
Emma Chamberlain returned for another year as Vogue's special correspondent in a periwinkle ensemble with a matching plush headband. Her brown hair was parted down the middle, slicked back, and flowing behind her. She paired her pastel outfit with blue smoky eye makeup and nude peach lips.
Janelle came to slay another day. Everything as on point from her perfectly polished red lip to her show-stopping hair-do. YAAAS HONEY!
If this sleek-backed bob doesn’t make you wanna try this at home then, I don’t know what will. Lily was serving us with A naturally flushed beat that hit all her high-points. The less is more effect was a winner without a doubt. Classic and Chic wins!
