It Doesn’t Get Much Better Than the Met Gala Afterparty Glam

To us beauty lovers, the first Monday in May means only one thing: the Met Gala. This May 1, 2023, the biggest stars in Hollywood and beyond gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for the extraordinary night, hosted by Anna Wintour, in looks centered around this year’s theme: “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” after the late designer. And you better believe: the hair, makeup, and nail moments were some of the most out-of-the-box we’ve seen yet. There was Florence Pugh’s buzz cut (!), Lil Nas X’s full-body makeup, and plenty of fun french manicures.

Still, that was only the beginning. While this year’s white carpet is one of the best places to spy jaw-dropping hair and makeup, the after parties proved even better for glam. This year, we spotted Lizzo‘s wig change from brunette to blond, Kendall Jenner’s “supermodel” nails, and Janelle Monae’s sculptural updo, just to name a few – and the looks were so stunning we immediately added them to our Pinterest boards.
