Worthy of a Shakespearean drama, this years Met Gala was a celestial scene of out and out beauty. The show stopping accessories with flawless beauty to match. The “Heavenly Bodies : Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme was designed to create a dialogue between religious works of art (shown in New York’s Costume Institute museum) and fashion, allowing guest celebrities imaginations to run wild and in turn shine a spotlight on the historical influence the Catholic religion has on fashion.
The accessories that stole the night
The Veils - Crystal-gem adorned veils were pinned down to hair covering most of the head. Hair was centrally parted and either kept straight and sleek or waved into a Hollywood curl peaking through the drapes!
Sky-High Headpieces -Paying homage to the Holy Father, RiRi adorned her head in tribute to the Pope. Headpieces were bold, and high matching the theme perfectly.
All Hail the Halo’s - Blake Lively stole the show this year with a gown to die for and hair perfectly twisted into a halo. We loved her bespoke Judith Leiber clutch with a medieval inspired family crest including her husbands and two daughters initials.
Game of Crowns - From slightly more subtle tiaras to heavily embellished crowns, there was no reigning it in for these Queens!
Deep roses and golds accentuated the eyes where royalty ruled...we were never disappointed!
The Golden Star - Dark-aztec smokey eyes with hues of coral and blushed lips were all the rage this year.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley
Boldly Blushed - Cheeks were blushed with brighter tones of pink, some more fiercely applied others a subtle pinched and plumped touch.
Gothic Guise - Gothically inspired make up with darker colours on the lips and harsher lines around the eyes were a winner and stood out amongst the crowd.
