The Met Gala is finally back, and although this year it wasn’t the first Monday of May, the 13th of September will totally do. Hollywood’s biggest stars made their way to the 2021 Met Gala (you can peep 40 more looks here). The theme? “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” – translation, a celebration of American fashion. And it’s safe to say Justin and Hailey Bieber can be dubbed our version of (the new) American royalty, and the two dressed the part decked out in sleek and sophisticated Drew House by Ryan Good and Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello respectively.
Although Saint Laurent is a French fashion house, the pair bleeds Hollywood glamour in minimal black looks styled by the queen of cool Karla Welch. As for the makeup, Mary Phillips did what she does best – effortless, cool girl makeup using Pat McGrath Labs.
For the hair, our EIC Jen Atkin created chic, effortless rock n’ roll waves that perfectly played into the Americana theme of the night. Below, Jen breaks down a step-by-step guide to recreate Hailey Bieber’s Met Gala 2021 hair.
