The Met Gala 2015’s Best Beauty Looks
With a vibrant theme of China: Through The Looking Glass, the annual Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in New York City unveiled an evening of dramatic, sultry beauty looks last night. From Gigi Hadid to Katy Perry, here are the best makeup and hair statements from the Met Gala 2015.

1) Gigi Hadid: The 20-year-old model stunned on the red carpet with her loose, long textured waves. While evening events may bring fussy, overly sculpted updos to mind, Hadid kept her hair simple and youthful at the gala. Her boho chic waves were created by stylist Jennifer Yepez, who added volume near the crown and brought texture to the lengths with a volumizing mousse. Meanwhile, a finishing treatment and a boar bristle brush were used to smooth the hair and offer a sleek touch to ends. Next, styling cream was used from the mid-lengths to ends for a relaxed, textured vibe throughout the locks. Yepez finished the hairstyle with a strong hold hairspray, and used all Moroccanoil products to craft the look.

2) Selena Gomez: With her bright red lips and dramatic black lashes, Selena Gomez was a vision. The 22-year-old singer stepped out with her dark locks pinned back with orchids, for an Asian inspired doll hairstyle. To create the charming look, hairstylist Renato Campora added volume by applying a volumizing mousse on wet hair. Next, he blow dried Gomez’ locks, using a boar bristle brush for smooth strands, separated her hair into two inch sections, and straightened her tresses. After adding a touch of smoothing lotion, he put the top half of her hair into a high ponytail and the bottom half into a low ponytail behind her right ear.
As a finishing touch, Campora arranged the top half into a sleek shape and pinned it back toward the lower half. For a floral touch, white orchids were pinned in place from the top to the left side of the hairstyle. He also added strong hold hairspray, and used all Moroccanoil products to perfect Gomez’ sweet style.
3) Katy Perry: The 30-year-old Roar singer showcased a cropped dark wig at the gala, paired with flawless porcelain skin and subtle, feminine makeup. We like her fuss-free beauty look, which is a sharp contrast from the bright, bold and daring makeup which the star usually loves. To recreate her look, try creating a similar smokey eye using light brown eyeshadow. Add a double coat of black mascara to curled lashes, or apply a pair of false lashes for a high-drama, sultry look.
We also love her pale pink lips, which managed to stand out in a sea of vivid red pouts at the event. To complete the look, apply a light pink lip gloss for a natural finish.
