It’s the first Monday in May, when fashion's finest traditionally come together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual Met gala. Tonight is an exception, with the gala postponed as much of the world stays home amid the current pandemic. So instead of devising new jaw-dropping looks, hair and makeup artists everywhere are recalling their favorite Met moments—the sparkling, starry shots that were too good not to share.
For the 2017 Met Gala, makeup artist Hung Vanngo played to the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons" theme by swiping a shimmering emerald liner across the lids of Emily Ratajkowski. Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway shared some behind-the-scenes snaps from the 2018 event, when she prepped actor Tessa Thompson’s extreme bun with dramatic pearl accents. And for last year’s "Camp" theme, when guests ascended the pink steps clad in colorful looks, stylist Christian Wood raked fresh glitter gel through Sophie Turner's blonde strands. "Still my favorite #MetGala moment," he captioned the close-up of his Emmy-nominated client.
Here, the moments that captured the hearts of Hollywood’s top beauty pros.
