Red carpet season is always something to look forward to for the hottest makeup and hair trends and the latest fashion inspiration. This year's Met Gala theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion" and it was entertaining to see how everyone interpreted this exaggerated, high fashion theme. From barbie doll vibes to icon homage and full glamour - the aesthetic was definitely pleasing to our eyes. Let's take a look at the celeb's wild makeup and fashion choices!

One of the common themes on the Met Gala red carpet this year was barbie vibes and the color pink! Kacey Musgraves takes the beauty award for the best barbie look, complete with mannequin-esque skin and pretty in pink makeup. Recreate this look with a pink color palette and flawless skin.

From pink glamour to black lingerie, it's no surprise that Lady Gaga pulled off multiple outfit changes. She outdid herself with this epic, grand entrance. Gaga's makeup included vivid pink lips with glitter eyeliner and avant garde style lashes that completely stole the show. The makeup look on its own is definitely something that can be recreated - shimmering lids topped with glitter eyeliner and a statement lip.
Take inspiration from her lashes and embellish your look with gold elements and get creative with the placement. It will be a lot more wearable than Gaga's look but you will still create the same bold impact.

Lupita Nyong'o looked exquisite in an embellished afro with golden picks. Her makeup included a heavily gilded cut crease and bold lip color. While we all can't rock her gorgeous look in everyday life, we can take inspiration from it!
Over-accessorize your mane with chunky hair barrettes which are so on-trend at the moment. Mix and match in different styles and colors for a one-of-a-kind look. For the makeup, a retro glam inspired cut crease will do and on the plus side, you can use as little as two shades to make this look work! Embellish the lids with shimmering glitter or metallic foiled finishes. Complete the look with a dark, bold lip.

Elle Fanning gave us Baby Spice vibes in aqua blue eye makeup and gold locks in gorgeous waves. She accessorized her look with cute, dangly nail charms in soda and French fries.
We'll forever be obsessed with pretty pastels and cotton candy makeup and will make any excuse to rock this look. From statement liner in bright shades to soft pastel washed lids, there's so many ways to rock this pretty makeup. If nail charms aren't practical for your lifestyle, you can always DIY kawaii inspired nail art which is so fun for the summertime.

We can't get enough of Zoe Saldana's disco glam look! Zoe was all about the textures in her glowy, copper gown that had 60,000 sequins and Swarovski crystal adorned eyelids to match. The purple eye makeup beautifully complimented the purple orchids in her hair.
Get inspired by Zoe's purple rein look with a purple color palette. Bling out your look with high-shine metals and add falsies for extra flair.

Sophie Turner looked immaculate in a jewel toned smoky, flawless skin and wet slicked back glistening hair. Rich gemstone inspired hues look great on every complexion and eye color and they're always breathtakingly beautiful.
Incorporate jewel tones with a classic smoky and embellish with an eyelid topper with unique finishes for a striking look! Smoldering eye kohl and false lashes will add drama to the look. Keep the rest of the face to the bare minimum to keep the focus on the eyes.

Celine Dion arrived in couture fashion with a dramatic peacock headpiece and a Judy Garland inspired beaded fringe gown. Celine's makeup was a glowy dream with gilded lids and a killer highlighter to match!
Take inspiration from Dion's look with a beautiful, golden bronzed color palette. Choose from amber, peach, gold and copper for total sunset makeup vibes. This look demands bronzed and glowing skin! Complete the look with your choice of a bold or nude lip.

Kim Kardashian West was drippin' in beads and sequins in a nude curve hugging, body-con sultry dress. Inspired by Sophia Loren, she oozed high glamour. Damp waves and glistening skin added to the glam appeal.
Warm up the eyes with burnt sienna and soft terra-cotta hues. Add a killer spotlight halo effect on the eyes with shimmering, silver. A glowy bronzed complexion and a nude lip will complete the look.

Jennifer Lopez dripped in diamonds from head to toe (literally!) and had a glowy bronzed complexion to match! An amethyst smokey matched her bling and a creamy nude lip completed the look.
Use JLO's mua drugstore hack for that enviable red-carpet glow and go heavy handed on the bronzer because hello, that's her signature look! Play up an intense smokey in violet hues and don't skip the false lashes for this one.
