StyleSpeak brings to you some of the best looks slayed by celebs at MET GALA 2024

The Met Gala 2024 is the talk of the town as the attendees this year stole the show. The Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and this year’s exhibit was ‘Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion’. The dress code ‘Garden of Time’ witnessed several unique styles that are worth discussing.

1) Zendaya – The Dark Goddess Look

Zendaya did it again! Stylist Law Roach went for a ‘dark feminine trend’ for the first of her two looks. Her dress involved faux grapes, a veil and a long feather on her hair. Makeup artist Raoul Alejandre chose a dramatic maroon smokey eye and oxblood shiny lip with skinny 1920s long brows. Hairstylist Ursula Stephen on the other hand, trusted the Dyson hair tools which helped her achieve the perfect low bun mimicking the elegant calla lily flower.

2) Anok Yai – Diamond Cat Look

The real-life ‘Model of the Moment Barbie’, Anok Yai was seen at the Met Gala wearing a Swarovski-designed full-body gem jumpsuit. Sheika Daley, a top Lancôme makeup artist, gave her icy and luminous makeup, making her shiny eyes the main character of the entire look. A perfect smokey wing eye with a beautiful inner corner highlighter in silver stood out with every camera flashlight that hit her. Her glowy base perfectly complemented the glossy nude lip. For hair, stylist Jawara gave her a feathered slick pixie with a rich kiss curl.


3) Amanda Seyfried – White Swan Look

Amanda Seyfried’s retro-and-modern look included stunning silver hair slicked back with finger curls by hairstylist Renato Campora and a hair piece matching her silver Prada gown. Her makeup artist Genevieve Herr, went with a very pale, almost matte skin with high blush on cheeks. She used Lancôme for the face including Le Lip Liner in ‘265 Portelle’ and Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick in ‘509 Rêve Toujours’.


4) Taylor Russel – Sculpture of Elegance Look

Makeup artist Celia Burton chose to do an earthy-toned look that resembled nature and Taylor’s Loewe dress. Celia stuck with the tried and tested catty flick eyeliner that elongated her inner corners. She used a chocolate wooden shade that matched the flower motif on the corset. Hairstylist Joey George dolled her up with a perfect mini fringe.
