The Best Met Gala Beauty Looks of All Time

If you thought Oscars fashion was great, the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute Gala, better known as the Met Gala — is like the Super Bowl of red carpets. Every year there’s a creative theme that inspires celebrities, designers, models, and noteworthy VIPs to dress up in avant-garde ensembles and outside-the-box hair and makeup.

In anticipation of this year’s event, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons,” on May 1, we’ve rounded up the most stunning, dramatic, and inspiring beauty looks from previous years. From net headpieces to turquoise eye shadow to Marie Antoinette-inspired hair, these are the best Met Gala beauty looks.
