When it came to dresses at last night’s Met Gala, it was easy to tell who hit the Charles James nail on the head — and who totally missed the memo. In the hair-and-makeup department, however, less so — there isn't a specific Charles James "beauty look," so to speak. Some stars, such as Blake Lively, interpreted the theme with the tried-and-true “Old Hollywood Glamor” look with sculpted hair waves and matte red lips. Others opted for nontraditional beauty choices, such as Joan Smalls and her bright-purple lipstick, or Sarah Jessica Parker and her giant hair bagels. Kristen Stewart debuted a bright-orange head of hair, while Beyoncé and Lupita Nyong'o took a more whimsical approach with festive hair ornaments.
