It may be fashion’s biggest night, but beauty stole the show at the 2023 Met Gala. For this year’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” attendees strutted along the red carpet, paying homage to one of the biggest names and influences in fashion. On the red carpet, Lala Anthony interviewed the Grande Madame of the evening, Anna Wintour herself, who said, “I love seeing what everybody is wearing,” when asked what she’s excited about. But what’s a fashion look without a beauty moment? And the guests didn’t disappoint.
The Met Gala is a perfect opportunity for stars to play with beauty and they didn’t disappoint. While several looks—like Dua Lipa’s soft glam—were attainable and wearable, other stars used the moment for avant-garde and even camp looks (I’m looking at you, Doja Cat). There were several beauty trends on the red carpet that you can use for inspiration. Whether it’s the super short cuts that Florence Pugh and Kristen Stewart rocked or the voluminous hairstyles (that we told you would be trending for spring)—featured on Keke Palmer and Anne Hathaway, you’ll be sure to find a beauty look to emulate.
