The 2014 Costume Institute Gala showcased dozens of gorgeous looks in the “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” theme, as well as a whole slew of awful ones (including more than a few very NSFW ones). But what about the faces of these lovely guests? Given the $25,000 price tag for a ticket, one would hope each of these models, celebrities, designers and debutantes might be able to snag a solid makeup artist for the evening. Sadly, while our “Best Beauty” list was chocked full of fantastic looks, this was not the case for everybody.
The Met Gala was apparently the Night of the Living Hair, with multiple guests opting for entirely too complicated, enormous hairstyles, as well as excessive blush, bronzer and eyeshadow. Ready for a rundown on the worst? Prepare to feel like giving your face and hair a good, deep clean ASAP…
Did somebody tell Sandra Lee that the Met Gala had a Toddlers & Tiaras theme this year?
I wonder if anybody put salt and queso on Sarah Jessica Parker‘s pretzel-shaped hair as a post-Gala snack.
Whomever did this to Brie Larson‘s hair and tricked her into looking good was probably the same bully who fooled kids into thinking bubblegum was like a sexier, sweeter version of hair gel.
You know how much we love Shailene Woodley, but goodness gracious, it looks like she copied her look from Long Island Medium.
Elizabeth Olsen was hands down one of the worst dressed of the night in her Sochi-appropriate Miu Miu frock, but her overdone makeup was a mess, too.
Rihanna is so amazing at…everything, usually. So what’s up with this messy, barely put-together look?
Lea Michele‘s makeup wasn’t terrible, but her overly teased 80s prom hair needs to go.
This is a very lovely kindergarten look that Chloe Sevigny chose for the evening. So, the question is this: Who had the worst makeup and hair at the 2014 Met Gala?
