Our favourite bold, beauty choices from Met Gala 2017

Futuristic, platinum headpieces made from scratch? Check.

Bold eye shadow and blush choices? Check.

Larger than life hair? Double check.

To the pleasure of fashion lovers, there were a good number of daring, beauty looks that graced the Met Gala 2017 red carpet.

There’s no denying that dramatic, avant-garde perspectives are expected on this iconic evening (I mean, why else would they have used more than 1 million fresh flowers to decorate last year’s Gala?) so it’s no surprise that the A-list stars put on a show when it comes to their hair and makeup choices as well.

Rita Ora’s dramatic headpiece courtesy of celebrity hairstylist, César DeLeön Ramirez, took three days to create while Rihanna opted for a matte fuschia eyeshadow and blush duo to accentuate her Comme des Garçons dress. The result? A perfectly curated look in line with this year’s Met theme: Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. 

Contrary to this, there were also more simple, soft and subtle beauty choices from the likes of Kim Kardashian West, her half-sister Kendall Jenner and the rising star, Paris Jackson.

Cara Delavigne accentuated her silver hair with rhinestones to create a striking metallic pixie look against her famous bold eyebrows. I guess it helps when you’re your beauty look is courtesy of some pretty amazing genes! Hailey Baldwin also had some rhinestones in her headband for some edgy glam.

One of my favourites of the night was the fabulous Zendaya for her bold Dolce and Gabbana printed dress choice and volumnous hair to accentuate her look. Her coral lip and soft skin glow exuded a very romantic feel that completed her look perfectly.

So which beauty look stood out most for you?
