If You Copy One Beauty Trend From The Met Gala, Let It Be This

The eyes have it

As expected, the 2017 Met Gala served up some of the most breathtaking hair and make-up looks we’ve seen all year. But one breakaway trend stood out from all the rest: while there was the usual smattering of statement lips, a noticeable number of celebrities chose to accentuate their eyes instead.

Consider this the new smoky eye: totally OTT, elongated, jet-black eyeliner. Coating the lids of everyone from Allison Williams to Lily-Rose Depp to Gigi Hadid, the graphic cat-eye has can be tailored to suit your style and eye shape.

The best bit? It’s easily recreated at home. Scroll to see our favourite versions from fashion’s night of nights below.
