The Most Outrageous Beauty Moments from the Met Gala

Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion did *not* disappoint.

We always love watching the Met Gala red carpet, but this year’s theme of Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion had us anxiously refreshing our browsers every 10 seconds. Would celebrities lean into the boisterous mood of the evening, or would safe, pretty makeup dominate? From the second co-host Lady Gaga descended upon the sea of photographers, changing into not one, not two, but FOUR different outfits, with golden eyelashes at least five inches long, our hearts began to flutter.

Celebrities (most of them) seemed freed of the constraints of the typical red-carpet glam, instead favoring drastic transformations, like Mindy Kaling’s platinum hair, bold color à la Laverne Cox’s baby-blue eyeshadow, or all-out, show-stopping drama courtesy of Billy Porter’s gilded *everything* and Katy Perry doing her best impression of a candelabra. It was a feast for the eyes everywhere you looked, which is exactly how the Met should be, and even made us rethink how an editorial beauty moment could translate to real life. Maybe it’s time to stock up on rhinestones…

Check out the most outrageous and stunning beauty looks of the evening below.
