HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
This year’s Met Gala, fashion’s big night out, did not fail to reveal designer styles ranging from classy to even a little bit crazy. Themed “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” A-listers showed off their best interpretation of the style, some exceeding expectations and others missing the mark. One head-turning makeup look we couldn’t ignore was pulled straight from the spring runways (Donna Karen pictured above right). The usually demure Emily Blunt went bold wearing electric pink eyeshadow. NARS makeup artist Jenn Streicher broke convention and used the line’s Jardin des Plantes satin lip pencil on Emily’s eyes and topped it with Desire powder blush. We appreciate that Emily took a beauty risk, but we’re not so sure it paid off.
