Met Gala Beauty Looks We Can’t Stop Thinking About

The 2024 Met Gala beauty looks for the enchanting “Garden of Time” theme, inspired by J.G Ballard’s short story from 1962, didn’t disappoint and we thought we would break down some of the stunning faces that stole the show for us.

Zendaya’s Villain Arc

Zendaya’s look, or looks, definitely didn’t disappoint for her first year as co-chair of the Gala. She definitely sits up in our top 5 after she shook the world of Met Gala fans on May 6th when she walked the carpet twice. She sported two stunningly striking looks, Margiela by John Galliano for her first and never worn before archive Givenchy from 1996 for her second and both looks were styled by styled by the jaw-droppingly talented Law Roach. 


She accompanied these looks with two corresponding beauty looks, the first channelling dark, fairy-tale villain energy. She combined shades of pink and purple and exuded incredible dark feminine energy. The second look was far softer, and more romantic peachy toned glam extenuating her bleached, skinny brows.


Emma Chamberlain’s Earthy Glam

On the red carpet, Chamberlain also embraced dark feminine energy with matte, sombre brown makeup that completed her earthy grunge look and matches perfectly alongside her 2003 floor length Jean Paul Gautier gown.


Gigi Hadid Channels Marilyn

Gigi channelled beauty icon Marilyn Mondoe, with her bouncy brown out bob and statement red lip. She did so in a full face of Maybelline as the current face of their brand.


Tyla’s Water Droplet Nails

Tyla came for the throats of the Met Gala veterans at her very first Met Gala ever – and definitely secured future invites back. She stunned in a custom sand sculpture dress by Olivier Rousteig for Balmain. She fully dove into the time aspect of the “Garden of Time” theme by pairing her sandy hourglass figure with an actual hourglass as a “handbag”. 

However the part of the look that completely stole the show for us was her water droplet illusion nails, making an homage to her chart topping debut song “Water”.


Doja Cat’s Chrome Tears

Doja Cat was perfectly on theme, dressed as a teary-eyed sculpture that you’d find in an enchanted garden. She wore simply a wet oversized t-shirt, which accentuated her curves much like that of a sculpture. 


FKA Twigs Dripping In Diamonds

For this years Met, twigs instead opted for a custom Stella McCartney look, worn over embellished crop top and matching hot pants and was quoted to be “dripping in Stella McCartney diamonds, which are lab-grown,”.


Ariana Grande’s Fairy-tale Glam

R.E.M founder and chart topping singer Ariana played homage to her fairylike features which worked perfectly for her and the Garden of time theme. She wore a full face of her own makeup brand with holographic 3D appliques on her cheeks, almost appearing as wings  paired with stunning opal, diamond earrings.


Lana’s ‘Tree Chic’

Only Lana could make dressing like a tree look chic. With the help of her make up artists Etienne Ortega, she paired this Avant Garde look with a stunning doe like brown toned glam underneath the mesh of her look. He utilised his own makeup line, including his go-to Lana Del Rey lip combination, which consists of his Agave Glow Colour Stick in Petals in the middle and Soft Contour Lip Liner in Cinnamon Girl. Ortega applied Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Foundation on Del Rey’s face and her Super Easy Eye Palette to her eyes.
