The first monday of May marked the biggest night in fashion, the MET gala 2019. From blocked-out brows to seriously exaggerated multi-dimensional lashes that could probably touch your ceiling top, stars flooded the red carpet last week with the brightest, and most gripping beauty interpretations of this year theme ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ (thank you Anna Wintour, and we LOVE you).
We love how Sophie Turner paired blue metallic slash glitter shadow with glassy nude lips. The stark difference between the two keeps it classy (insert PJ). That said, is it just us or is Turner’s icy hairdo giving you major white walker vibes? It almost makes us wonder how she’d the prettiest ‘Night Queen’ if there was one. GOT it? Plus, this look would work on the newly wed even if it wasn't on a themed red carpet. She's just that cool.
Deepika Padukone’s futuristic Barbie meets Disney princess was undoubtedly campy beauty in its prettiest, most feminine form fo sho. To complement her structured Zac Posen structured gown (which was covered in hundreds of 3D-printed embellishments btw), Padukone literally aced by clubbing this look with striking purple eyeshadow, ultra-voluminous ponytail and rich burgundy painted onto her lips. Raise your hand if you’d vouch for a deepika padukone barbie in stores ASAP.
You be so glassy Kim. Yet again the american reality star shut down the red carpet with her impressive makeup choice created by the phenomenal Mario Dedivanovic (well obvi). Officially described as the ‘wet and dripping’ aka ‘just out of the water’ beauty look by multiple publications, the beauty mogul displayed caramel glossy lids, wet finger waves, pronounced lashes and monochromatic lips. Can we just take a moment to just appreciate how she repeatedly manages to look THAT good with just a lip liner on? Now, the only question that we’d like to ask her is, ‘How you dewing, Kim?’.
If there’s anyone that can make fluffy brushed-out curls look relevant, it’s Priyanka Chopra Jonas. Her stunning adaptation of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland truly made a mark in gala history. Apart from that sensational Dior couture, Chopra sported pronounced lashes, super accentuated red and white makeup accents, blocked-out brows and maroon lips. Also, did you notice that she brought a little bit of home to the gala carpet by slapping on a gorgeous silver rhinestone bindi. More power to you Pee Cee.
If there’s one thing the internet is currently talking about, it’s Gaga’s fierce gown transformation. The second I spotted that clip on my instagram feed, I gasped so loudly that my neighbor probably heard me. Yes, for those living under a rock, Gaga had four outfit changes on the red carpet (kudos to the confidence though). That said, what really stole our hearts were her ultra magnified gilded foil lashes, dramatic black and white winged liner and bubblegum lips. Also, going for that gorgeous wavy platinum bob was genius because it helped neutralise the entirety of the look. Let’s just say we're totally Gaga over Gaga right now.
