  • The 2021 Met Gala marked the return of the event after a year hiatus.
  • There were plenty of epic celebrity beauty looks on the 2021 Met Gala red carpet.
  • Some stars like Billie Eilish kept their look classic, while others brought the sparkle, like Amanda Gorman.

There may have been a four-month date change in this year's annual Met Gala, but there's one thing that always stays the same come fashion's biggest night: the over-the-top beauty looks hitting the red carpet. The dress code this time around was "American Independence" — and it's fair to say no one was quite sure how each celebrity would interpret the theme. Luckily, celebrities delivered in the beauty department.

There were retro hairstyles that gave a nod to the '60s and '70s. There were glitter nails decals and loads of shimmer eyeshadow. You'll even see a hair colour change or three (here's looking at you Gigi Hadid). From first timers Megan Thee Stallion and Met Gala chochairs Billie Eilish and Timothée Chalamet to return attendees like Kristen Stewart and Amandla Stenberg, the evening is proved to be filled with enough hair, makeup, and nail inspiration to fill an your mood board through the end of the year.
