Best Beauty: MET Gala 2016

We’ve all had our eyes fixed firmly to the MET Gala’s red carpet to dissect the fashion choices made by¬†the rich and famous, but according to Smashbox’s global pro lead artist, Lori Taylor,¬†we should be taking a close look at the beauty choices of celebs too. “Follow the red carpet; it’s where you can pick out all the wearable trends,” Taylor told MiNDFOOD. We’ve rounded up the looks that we’ll be imitating once the weekend rolls around.

Red Carpet Rundown: MET Gala 2016

With the boundary between fashion and technology being constantly blurred both on and off the runway, it came as no surprise to many when the theme of the¬†spring exhibition¬†for the¬†Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute was announced as¬†Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology.¬†The theme-inspired dress code for the annual gala was translated¬†into ‘tech white tie’ by American¬†Vogue¬†editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. Sequins, silver, celestial motifs and collaborations with tech giant IBM lit up the red carpet. Take a look at our favourite looks from the evening in the gallery below.
