Hair And Makeup Looks That Slayed The Red Carpet At This Year's Met Gala

These makeup and hair looks gave us LIFE.

Every year, peasants like me who can't afford a $25,000 ticket to the Met Gala sit around and imagine how glorious it must be to be there: Honestly, not even for the celebrities, but because of the fashion and beauty looks!

For this year's Met Gala, the theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination," and while we don't know what the heck that means, we're excited to see what makeup and hair looks are spawned from Catholicism. So here are some of the best looks we saw from the night:

Jasmine Sanders immediately snatched my edges when she came down the red carpet in this beautiful, BEAUTIFUL rose-pedaled braid and gold smokey eye look. QUEEN.

Olivia Munn definitely caught some looks for the night, but nothing stole my heart more than her Buxom berry liquid lipstick, like, can I have this now?

Bella Hadid obviously had to stunt with a crisp contour, but her hair also garnered a lot of attention — her bun featured a cascading black rope that trickled down her back, and it legit weighed 10 POUNDS.
