The Best Beauty Looks at the Met Gala Prove It’s Not About Fashion
While fashion is the main attraction at the Met Gala, there’s no denying that attendees’ artistic beauty looks are worthy of being displayed in a museum.
After all, this is the one event where creative expression is not only encouraged but celebrated. That’s why A-listers like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Zendaya and many others aren’t afraid to push the boundaries with over-the-top makeup, blinding body jewels and va-va-voom hairstyles.
Case in point? In 2019, the House of Gucci actress stole the spotlight with her dagger-sharp spikey gold false lashes, oval-shaped eye gems, thick double-winged eyeliner and hot pink lipstick. Plus, her mini hair bows were a nostalgic call-back to her early red carpet days.
“I know intrinsically that I have a camp soul,” Lady Gaga told Vogue in 2019, referencing the “Camp: Notes of Fashion” theme based on Susan Sontag‘s 1964 essay. “What I really love about what we’re doing is that it reads like an essay or a poem.”
