It’s the first Monday in May, which means the annual Met Gala is here once again. Last year, the theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” was all about American fashion, with gilded glamour as the dress code. This year’s theme, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” is an ode to the late designer known for his work at Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, and his namesake line, Karl Lagerfeld. The dress code, then, is fitting: in honour of Karl.

Last year, celebrities took the gilded glamour theme in many different directions, including tons of intricate headpieces. So, it’s interesting to see how folks interpreted the night’s theme.

This year our favourite Hollywood A-listers, celebrities, influencers, and supermodels dazzled at the event, wearing stunning beauty looks ever seen. All the stars definitely made their very best to look effortlessly gorgeous at the Met Gala 2023. Some of them opted for more extravagant beauty looks, while others were divided between those who opted for glam make-up, choosing whether to emphasise the lips or the eyes more. Think of Cardi B’s silver-toned bob with flipped ends, tied with a leather hairband, Rita Ora’s sultry smokey eye, texture curls and chic nail design or Rihanna’s powerful red lipstick.

We’ve rounded up our favourite beauty moments. See every eye-catching look from the 2023 Met Gala here.

A very blonde Gigi Hadid wore a semi-collected, relaxed hairstyle. In addition, in terms of makeup, the artist wore soft silvery eyeshadow and a single pearl centred under the lower lash line of each eye to denote her look to the fullest and make her radiant and flawless skin.
