The Met Gala is always a winner when it comes to beauty inspiration, but which looks turned heads this year? Here are our top picks…

When it comes to the year’s biggest red carpets, one certain to never disappoint in the beauty stakes is the Met Gala's. This year’s theme - Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology - provided a bevy of hair and makeup ideas and an endless pool of inspiration we can’t wait to dive into. From bold to beautiful, classic to the more extreme, here are the looks we can’t get enough of.

Poppy Delevingne


The trend: Gothic lips

Burgundy was the new crimson and wine was the new ruby, with the darkest of pouts left doing the talking thanks to the likes of Poppy Delevingne's, Taylor Swift's, Miranda Kerr's and Rachel McAdams' glamourous takes on gothic lips.

Kendall Jenner


The trend: The 'Power Pony'

In terms of updos, the ‘Power Pony’ was the hairstyle of choice of many an A-lister from Kendall to Selena Gomez to Elle Fanning. Described as, ‘sleek and simple’ by Jenner’s hair stylist Tokyo Stylez, the style perfectly complemented her pared back makeup and Versace laser-cut gown - and accentuated her incredible bone structure too.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley


The trend: Slicked back updos

Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley hardly ever puts a foot wrong on the red carpet and the Met Gala was no exception. Her striking updo certainly turned heads, joining the likes of Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima in providing us with the perfect hair inspiration as we approach wedding season. “As soon I saw the stunning Ralph Lauren gown I knew the hair needed to be simple, clean and elegant – old Hollywood with a modern twist,” said her hair stylist Christian Wood for Moroccanoil. It was an elegantly futuristic update of a classic if you ask us.

Jourdan Dunn


The trend: Silver eyes

Giving eyes a theme-appropriate techy update, red carpet eyeshadows were noticeably more molten and multi-dimensional thanks to the ever-stylish trio of Jourdan Dunn, Olivia Wilde and Rita Ora. Forgoing the traditional smokey eye for a modern interpretation instead, this new version was both fresh and futuristic in equal measure.

Sienna Miller


The trend: Nude lips

Last night’s beauty looks were a tale of extremes and a pair of perfectly polished nude lips provided the ideal canvas for the A-list’s creative streak to shine through when it came to eyes, hair and tailoring. Sienna Miller’s prestine pout exemplified the trend to a T where Burberry Makeup Artistic Consultant Wendy Rowe’s masterful application of Burberry Lip Definer in Nude No.01, £18.50, and new Burberry Full Kisses in Nude Blush No.501 made for the most effective of dynamic duos.



The trend: Super smokey eyes

Complementing the trend for nude lips perfectly, the smokiest of eyes was the eye look of choice chosen to act as the most dramatic of companions for it. Queen B’s eye-catching rendition was one of our favourites, with Emma Watson, Emma Stone and Joan Smalls also providing masterclasses in creating the most night time appropriate of beauty balancing acts.

Karlie Kloss


The trend: Sexy backs

...specifically, lower backs. Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner were all spotted sporting the trend to make it the body part that’s garnered most exposure in the post Met Gala aftermath in more ways than one...

Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures any diseases & sickness.

Am Steven Phillips by name, I did not believe in spells or until last year someone close recommended me to Dr ATILA . I must say it really is excellent at what they do and why I testify my case: The woman with whom I was to marry left me a month before the wedding and my life was turned upside down because our courtship had worked for 4 years. Dr ATILA practiced Santeria ritual with me and soon everything returned to normal, and I'm married with a beautiful daughter.thank you for your help,with mine i believe with assurance that he can also solve yours. i advice you to contact(atilahealinghome@yahoo.com. or call +2347067607073.)you are really the best.
