The Best Beauty Moments from the 2017 Met Gala

The Met Gala is fashion-world equivalent of the Oscars. Every year on the first Monday of May, fashion and Hollywood’s biggest stars gather for the annual fundraising event for the Costume Institute at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Staying true to this year’s theme which celebrates Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, the stars’ beauty looks were just as avant garde as their outfits. Amongst the standouts were Rihanna’s color-block eyeshadow and lip and Cara Delevingne’s silver shaved head. Scroll down to see the best beauty looks from all of your favorite celebrities on the Met’s red carpet.

10. KIM KARDASHIAN
Kim wore her sleekest hairstyle yet on the Met Gala red carpet. To ensure her lob remained flyaway-free, her hairstylist Michael Silva applied Tony & Guy's Leave-In Conditioner ($13; target.com) on her wet hair. Silva told InStyle that this step was essential for the smooth style because the leave-in conditioner acts like a seal for the hair cuticle and fills in any cracks or crevices in the hair shaft. As for her signature nude lip? Her go-to makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic used Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Libre ($37; chanel.com).

23. CELINE DION
We don't know what's more hard to believe: that this was Celine's first Met Gala or how well she embraced the theme. The singer complimented her custom Versace gown with a origami-inspired headpiece and inky-black eye makeup created by makeup artist Justin St. Clair using Charlotte Tilbury's Rock 'n' Kohl Eyeliner in Bedroom Black ($27; nordstrom.com) and Luxury Palette in Fallen Angel ($65; beautylish.com).
