Whether they've been around for a long time or a short one, these English beauties have, to take a term from their French neighbours, a certain je ne sais quoi that catapulted them to It Girl status the moment they hit our radars. And one quick glance at the guest list at the 2013 Met Gala proved that this British invasion isn't ending any time soon. Alexa Chung, Jourdan Dunn, Sienna Miller, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Madekwe (complete with a new bob!) all put their best beauty looks forward at the event — so consider this gallery an homage to some of their best hair and makeup looks ever. Happy Queen's birthday long weekend!
