These celebrities nailed the brief.

Held every first Monday of May every year is the Met Gala. Known as the “Oscars of fashion”, it is one of the biggest events on the fashion calendar where A-list celebrities and the industry’s creme dela creme including supermodels and tastemakers grace and gather at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This year’s theme entitled Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, will honour the artistic brilliance of the late Kaiser Karl.

So how did that translate into beauty? One thing we know for sure is that the Met Gala encourages experimentation and throughout the years, it has delivered some of the most iconic red carpet beauty moments. Staying true to its theme, the attendees certainly did not disappoint as they served all-out glamour that has left us enamoured with blinding beauty.
