Hallelujiah, Kimmy K finally paid attention to the Met's theme! Carrying on the wet-look theme that had her looking like she'd emerged from the ocean dripping (but with what we assume were very, very expensive crystals), the makeup mogul completed her look with wet look beachy waves, subtle rose gold eyeshadow and nude lips.
JLo ensured all eyes were on her with her silver beaded cap that complemented her equally-sparkly dress. She also subtly matched her smokey violet eyeshadow to her dazzling Harry Winston necklace, which includes a 65.32-carat purple sapphire.
Keeping her skin and lips natural, Charli contrasted her bright yellow dress with eyeshadow consisting of this season's colour du jour, fuchsia, which paired flawlessly with the singer's hot pink tips.
The Aussie actress' eye-accentuating makeup looks to have been inspired by the Hollywood stars of the '60s, with her light eyeshadow base and bold exaggeration of the eye crease reminiscent of model Twiggy, as well as late 'Valley of the Dolls' star, Sharon Tate.
The 'Riverdale' star's look featured a pink-heavy colour scheme, with her statement blush going all the way up to her temples.
She paired her rosy cheeks with a similar hue on both her eyes and lips, completing the look with a Marie Antoinette-esque hairstyle and a floral headpiece.
Walking the red carpet (or pink, rather) with her 'Bohemian Rhapsody' co-star and boyfriend Rami Malek, Boynton went for a dainty, ethereal look, swapping out her blonde locks for a powder blue hue that perfectly complemented her dusty-pink dress.
Keeping her makeup fresh-faced, she added the perfect accent with a scattering of crystals around her eyes.
Makeup artist Kirin Bhatty, who did Awkwafina's look for the event, spoke to Variety about her preparation for this gold-shadow look, saying, "To me, camp means extravagance... There is a lot of trust among [Awkwafina’s] team, and when a client trusts you, you’re allowed to be free as an artist."
She added, "For me, the process was about doing the look over and over again. I start with a sketch, I put it on myself and wear it a ton of times. I’ll usually hire a model to try it on the day before. I dream about it, I think about it constantly. I drive everyone crazy talking about it, and then it’s gone into the universe and we’re onto our next!"
Taking camp to a whole new level with her bold look that took on everything from glitter to bright pink tones, Lupita's makeup artist revealed that the look was inspired by the legendary drag queen Divine, who starred in several John Waters' movies including 'Pink Flamingos' and 'Hairspray'.
Lupita's makeup artist, Nick Barose, told E! he wanted to exude Divine's "camp attitude," saying, "the eyes and eyebrows are accentuated with a cartoon-vibe, making the look more than just a cat-eye with something fun and over-the-top. I'm not doing it for fashion tonight -- I'm doing it for Divine (and John Waters!)."
In contrast to sister Gigi's all-white look, Bella instead opted for a darker vibe to pair with her embellished cutout gown by Moschino. The model even debuted a new hairstyle -- a polished pixie cut that perfectly paired with her elegant winged eyeliner.
Showing off her new bangs at the event, the 'Riverdale' star went for a dreamy look to match her fairy-like dress, wearing baby pink eye shadow and matching lipstick to enhance the ethereal vibe.
When it comes to Met Gala makeup, Lily Collins will always SHUT. IT. DOWN. And this year's event was absolutely no exception. Collins went for a complete sixties vibe, her sky-high bouffant, big lashes and purple shadow paying homage to Priscilla Presley on her wedding day to Elvis, with her floral hair accessories looking similar to the late Sharon Tate's hair during her wedding to Roman Polanski.
Well and truly nailing the 'camp' theme, the actress almost looked as if she was opting for a sexy version of the Mad Hatter from 'Alice in Wonderland'. Chopra went all in on the theme with fluffy brushed-out curls, rhinestone beauty marks, big, dramatic lashes, and a bold white liner along the waterline -- with her hair featuring a wire crown with similar rhinestones to those on her face.
Gigi's white' heavy look paired flawlessly with her bold gold and white Michael Kors jumpsuit and matching head cap. Her makeup, which was done by makeup artist Erin Parsons, featured huge, white, frosted false eyelashes and dewy, golden skin.
Bow down to our new king, Billy Porter! Going full-on golden Egyptian pharaoh/sun god for the occasion, the 'Pose' star revealed that his look was also an homage to Diana Ross's character in 'Mahogany'.
“Camp means irreverence,” Porter told Variety. "Camp means as hugely over-the-top and grand and what some may feel is ridiculous and silly, and embracing all of those creative impulses inside us that very often are squelched."
Proving that blue eyeshadow wasn't just for the '80s, Cox described her beauty look as “if Norma Desmond and Daphne Guinness had a baby in 2050”. The on-point look consisted of slick, icy-blue hair, pastel blue eyeshadow and a bold lip with a stark silver accent.
Not only did she outdo herself on the red carpet with FOUR iconic outfits, the queen of all things extra continued her bold looks with insane black and gold lashes, little foundation -- and tape.
"I think it’s much sexier when you can see a woman’s skin, it’s more approachable,” the singer's longtime makeup artist Sarah Tanno said, adding, “I taped her face back so her eyes wouldn’t be droopy. She wore the eyelashes for eight hours and they were heavy.”
Never one to shy away from a theatrical and dramatic look, Ezra Miller turned it up on the red carpet with a mask, later revealing his wild look that featured multiple sets of eyes drawn on to his face, along with a coating of bright red lipstick.
It looks like the '60s are back in a big way! Elle Fanning went for a 'Valley of the Dolls' inspired half updo, pastel blue and pink makeup and neon pink nails by manicurist Mar Y Sol using Essie, which featured vintage charms hanging from them.
Channelling the Harlequin character of Commedia dell'Arte, the actor brought a seriously campy beauty look to the table with bright blue eyeshadow that extended out to his temples, complete with a single burgundy line on his lower lip.
Looking nearly unrecognisable, Kristen Stewart stunned on the red carpet with bright orange locks, bleached brows and a stark white accent along her brow bone.
“Thank you David Bowie for always inspiring and for being the ultimate Camp,” Stewart wrote on Instagram of the look.
