Purple Lips and Orange Hair: The Best Beauty Looks at the Met Gala

By

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. Click through for some of the most memorable beauty looks from this year's Met Gala.
