Met Gala 2013: The best beauty looks of the night include spiky hair, neon nail art and Siouxsie Sioux-inspired eyes
Punk has never been so hotly debated. Ever since the Met Gala red carpet ended last night, anyone who’s a fan of fashion—and has a Twitter account—has shared their opinion on who interpreted the punk theme the best and who did it the worst. (Want to see all our best dressed picks? We have a full Met Gala 2013 style gallery up here.)
For hair and makeup, some stars took the Met Gala—and its theme, based on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit—as reason enough to let loose and go all out. (Though Miley Cyrus probably doesn’t need such literal prompting!) You’d think after attending months of award shows with well-dictated dress codes that many A-listers would embrace the Met Gala as a chance to try something new. January Jones did: “I love to step outside the box,” she said of her braided hair and slick, black makeup, which was inspired by Siouxsie Sioux.
While there were certainly some gorgeous hairstyles and classic beauty looks on the Met Gala red carpet, let’s celebrate those who went beyond the cat-eye liner, red lip or sleek updo. From Elle Fanning’s tie-dyed, watercolour eyes to Cara Delevingne’s mock side-shave hair, here’s who we think had the best Met Gala beauty looks.
