Yesterday was the first Monday in May which meant it was time for the Met Gala. The year’s theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and featured countless head-turning outfits that played off of it. But it wasn’t all about the clothes. The beauty looks helped create the magic looks. And thanks to Instagram we are lucky enough to see the behind-the-scenes moments of them getting created.
