Just when you thought you had to deal with a Met Gala hangover, we have decided to help you out a little in that department. While we have featured the best in fashion, showcasing our favorite designers, models and stars’ transformations into saints and celestial maidens, beauty is another thing that has to be talked about on its own. After all, with “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” as the year’s much-anticipated theme, it was the perfect excuse to go wild. As usual, we were all eyes.
From an ethereal glow to the downright dramatic, we present to you our top picks:
Channeling Joan of Arc in silver armor and chainmail number, Zendaya is all about bold fashion choices. Don’t expect anything less, beauty-wise—the star turned heads with a clean face, brushed up brows and a fiery red bob.
2. Kate Bosworth
Who said that loud makeup was the only way to catch your audience’s attention? With a delicate headpiece that compliments her updo and soft pink on her cheeks and lips, the actress looks every inch a Catholic bride.
3. Nicki Minaj
Staying true to her fierce persona, Nicki Minaj shows up in a fiery red frock and delicate headpiece. She tones things down with her makeup, with a dewy base and a feline flick.
4. Lily Collins
Lily Collins is proof that things are all in the details. Complimenting her taupe eyeshadow and lip color are bedazzled eyes and a dramatic red tear.
5. Jared Leto
With a natural flair for the dramatics, one would expect Jared Leto to go all out with the theme. While he does this perfectly in his Gucci suit, his gold crown, grown-out beard and curly locks only contribute to comparisons with Jesus Christ.
6. Natalia Vodianova
Simple yet stunning at the same time, the supermodel puts a fresh spin on the smokey eye, complimenting it with a glossy nude-pink lip.
7. Bella Hadid
With a natural contour to highlight her cheekbones and gold highlight at the inner corner of her eyes to match her accessories, Bella Hadid’s gaze becomes all the more powerful.
8. Amal Clooney
If there’s one word to describe Amal Clooney’s look, it would be fresh. With shimmery highlight and coral red lips, her look is both bold and approachable.
9. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra’s headpiece is stunning, with shimmery gold lids and statement reds lips to perfectly compliment it.
10. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
With a golden halo on her head and an ethereal glow, the supermodel and actress looked like an actual angel on earth.
11. Jennifer Lopez
If anyone has perfected that perfectly bronzed look at any time of the year, we’d have to hand it down to J-Lo. Making way for her beaded Balmain number, the star’s sleek hair and makeup look of choice always proves to be a winner.
