As we know, Punk: Chaos to Couture was the theme of last night’s Met Gala held in New York, and whilst some full embraced it, and others didn’t there was definitely a whole load of punk-inspired beauty look.
Cat eyes, dark lips and smoky eyes were definitely a running theme for the evening and some even dyed their hair to make a statement.
Nicole Richie went for a grey/white bold shade to go with her custom Topshop number; she doubled up on the beauty looks and went for a dark burgundy lip too.
Diane Kruger dip-dyed the bottom of her intricate ponytail bright pink – giving the slightest hint to the punk theme – she went for a very dark smoky eye too.
But the biggest shocker of the night in terms of hair dyes has to be Anne Hathaway’s bold change to blonde. She channelled the perfect punk princess in her sheer Valentino gown which she paired with her cropped blonde hair. I love the bold change.
Kristen Stewart’s risky burgundy eye was one of my favourite beauty looks. She went for a head-to-toe matching deep red look, which she translated to her Stella McCartney jumpsuit, pumps and nails too. Kristen’s nonchalant attitude and edge ensure that’s she’s the perfect lady to carry off this look.
Jessica Biel also tried a very subtle red eyeshadow shade blended around her eyes, but she relatively kept her beauty look barely there – I’m assuming she wanted all focus to be on her new nose ring (again, I assume this was only there for the evening).
Graphic eyeliner looks from Dakota Fanning, Bella Heathcote and Lily Collins gave a fresh twist to the classic eyeliner.
But it was January Jones’ that really caught my attention. The rest of her face was given a barely-there look, perfect to let her graphic eyeliner and black jewels around the eye standout. It was the ultimate way to finish her Chanel sequinned mini dress.
Kristen Stewart wasn’t the only celebrity to try a colour on her eye, Emily Blunt’s winged eyeliner was in a bright shocking pink – this worked seamlessly with her faux-hawk plaited do.
Ginnifer Goodwin is not one to shy away on the red carpet, she chose an emebellished Tory Burch gown, but it was definitely her make-up that was the punk part of her look. Bold black shadow was taken up to her brow, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a darker eyebrow – and I’m from the land which invented the Scouse Brow. Jessica Pare also wore a similar beauty look to Ginnifer, but not quite as bold.
Which were your favourite beauty looks from the evening?
