Crème de la crème of the fashion world gathered on the first Monday of May to celebrate this year’s Met Gala. The theme of the night was the opening of “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibition and the attendees fully grasped this idea of two extremes and turned it into fashion masterpieces. From exotic colors of garments and makeup, to avant-garde style and old glamour, the Met Gala displayed everything from striking to subtle. Take a look at the fashion and makeup highlights of the show.
A serious competition to Rihanna’s stunning spectrum was the bold mixture of colors worn by Zendaya. The singer sported an off-the-shoulder dress with bright colors and floral pattern that could hardly go unnoticed. Zendaya complemented the look with her voluminous curly hair that confirmed her status of a show-stealer. The star is certainly an inspiration for all those who want to experiment with colors but fear the final outcome. Follow Zendaya’s steps and don’t be afraid to go big and bold.
Artistic from head to toe
According to the theme of the evening, Gigi Hadid showed us how to successfully create fashion piece of art. Having enough experience as a model and as a designer, Hadid mixed a variety of fabrics and styles to pull off this artistic look. With an asymmetric dress that reveals just enough to tease you, but still remains elegant, Hadid was the embodiment of sexy and avant-garde that swept everyone off their feet.
Her unusual hairdo with fringes that covered half of her face added an element of mystery to the entire combination, which was completed with a black eyeliner that twists high above the eye. Expressing your artistic side never felt and looked so good.
A subtle touch
Despite the extravaganza displayed on many celebrity guests, the simple look also proved to be quite effective. One of those who opted for a toned-down look was Selena Gomez, who appeared in a flattering white dress with a subtle pattern, but spiced things up with pink makeup that almost reached her eyebrows.
This is another example of how good choice of shades can elevate any look, but if you want your makeup to look good and last all day long, you need to invest in skincare first. Apply quality day creams that suit your skin type and use an elixir serum to prevent sun damage, as well as the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. That way you’ll have spotless skin and pull off any look you want.
The glamour of past eras
The golden days of Hollywood were best captured by the style of Emma Roberts. The actress appeared in a body-wrapping long dress slightly decorated with lace that’s reminiscent of the Hollywood glamour of past eras. The subtle cleavage was strategically placed to light imagination and look sophisticated at the same time. The fiery red color only added to the elegance, while a modern twist came in the form of a pink wrap made of fur. Her effortless look was completed with nude shades of makeup that emphasized her natural beauty coupled with her shiny tresses. The perfect mixture of classic and modern made Roberts one of the most glamorously dressed celebrities of the evening.
The silver shimmer
A famous supermodel Gisele Bundchen was a true vision in silver, wearing a long, silky gown that shimmered and shined through the night. The open-back dress have side cut-outs that made her outfit even more appealing and added a touch of modern. She enhanced her natural qualities with smokey eyes and a soft shade of pink for the lips. The supermodel also wore a fabulous pair of drop earrings, and if you wish to copy the look, you can find something similar online.
Another Met Gala has come and gone and these stunning pieces can serve as an inspiration to make your own artwork.
