6 Heavenly and Hellish Beauty Trends from the 2018 Met Gala


The dress code for this year’s Met Gala celebrating the Costume Institute’s latest exhibition—Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination—was “Sunday Best.” And boy, did fashion’s finest take us to church. There were thigh-grazing slits that showcased plenty of sultry skin that would undoubtedly make a priest blush (including Cardi B who definitely didn’t get pregnant by way of immaculate conception). There were footlong ponytails and supersized waves reminiscent of the Madonna herself. (We’re talking about the Virgin Mary here, not Madge who surprised guests by performing “Like a Prayer.”)  Countless crowns, cherubic halos, towering tiaras, fresh flowers, and a handful of divine papal hats (one of which was worn by Pope RiRi, of course) proved that the higher and more elaborate the hair accessory, the closer one is to heaven. A few celebs went down the warrior route and opted for transformational chops inspired by heretic-turned-heroine Joan of Arc, while others decided on devilish dye jobs in punky shades of pink, purple, and green. Perhaps the most eye-catching objects on display were glittering lids and tips. Lash lines were bedazzled or dripping with gold, while manicures were turned into museum-worthy masterpieces. Here, the biggest beauty trends of the night.
