We’ve rounded up the best beauty moments to come out of the 2023 Met Gala. An affair that’s marked on every fashion-inspired mind, this year paid tribute to the legacy of Karl Lagerfeld. The theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” is an ode to the visionary that lent his ideas to the likes of Chanel, Fendi and Chloé. Celebrities and personalities alike honoured the great Karl Lagerfeld with their own renditions and take of his vision. Intricate headpieces, impressive embellishments and classic tweed were on full display. Here, we share our best beauty moments of the 2023 Met Gala from the red carpet that we could see continue to trend throughout the rest of the year.
Reprising her role as red-carpet host, social media trailblazer Emma Chamberlain stunned in a periwinkle Miu Miu ensemble. Her matching eye look was captivating and complimented the look without taking anything away. This blue take on a classic smokey eye is seductive and strong without being too overpowering and dominant. Perfect for those looking to explore this technique of shadow.
A gorgeous goth, Billie ringed her eyes with stark kohl liner. Strong and bold, the thick lines draw the attention straight to the eyes. She compliments the intense look with a soft swipe of rosy nude lipstick.
Effortless and sophisticated, Jennie’s make-up mirrors her chic style and cool personality. The similar shade of blush and eyeshadow is monochromatic magic that adds a kiss of colour to her white and black ensemble.
The Abbott Elementary actor stunned at her very first appearance at the Met Gala. Donning a stunningly intricate bedazzled dress, we can’t get over the pop of pink brushed on her eyes. Her version of a classic cut crease is timeless and it is then paired with voluminous lashes to add to the drama.
Sydney Sweeney was a stunning bejewelled bombshell this evening. The light sparkle of a soft green shade in the middle of the eyelid perfectly paired with the intricate stones on her dress. Almost giving off a halo-like impression around the eyes. The oversized black bow is fun and flirty and would be perfect for this Spring season.
Suki Waterhouse’s eyeshadow look was an instant standout. Taking the two primary colours of her dress, she implements those elements effortlessly into her look. Scaling from green, peach and pink, we also love the connection of her shadow to her blush. A make-up technique more popularised in Japan and Korea, the connection between the highest point of the cheekbones to the outer corner of the eyes allow a more elongated and lifted look to the face.
A pearlescent beauty, Gigi stunned in striking silver. Her silver cat-eye look was captivating and picture perfect. To compliment her pearls, she wore a dainty singular pearl in the centre of each bottom lash line for extra detail.
A woman who can’t do no wrong at the moment is Miss Anne Hathaway. With the theme honouring the legacy of Karl Largerfeld, she even pays tribute to the iconic Camellia flower of the Chanel house in her hair. Her throwback to an old school dramatised high wing liner perfectly complimented her gorgeous half-do.
