Fashion’s biggest night was big on beauty, too.
The 2023 Met Gala, which also marked the opening of the Met Museum’s “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” exhibition, saw attendees going full-steam ahead on the fantastical — and the fun.
While Lil Nas X and Sienna Miller went for the ornamental, Gisele Bündchen joined Irina Shayk and Nicole Kidman who opted for a more laid-back version of glam. Men and women also went for bold eyes, while a slew of stars wore their hair high. Here, a breakdown of the key trends from the Met Gala 2023 red carpet.
Extreme Ornamentation — If it’s not baroque, fix it. In tune with Lagerfeld’s love of all things 18th century, some guests went as gilded as possible.
Relaxed Glamour — Elegance is ease, at least for these red carpet heavyweights, who pared back their hair and makeup to let their clothes shine.
Bold Eyes — Many attendees upped the ante on eye makeup, opting for iridescent shades and crystalline lids.
Age of the Updo — For a gaggle of gala-goers, the higher the hair, the better.
Boy Beauty — Both men and women played with boyish haircuts and gleaming skin for beauty à la garçonne.
