While the dresses were predominately nude, the lips at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala were anything but!
Bold lips have been on our trend forecast for Spring (here) ever since they popped up all over the S/S 2011 runways. While the celebs definitely rocked the bold at the Met Gala, I just expected a little brightness as well. Emma Stone and Elizabeth Banks (below) went all out with the brights, but many of the other stars opted for deep red lips.

I love the “pretty punk” look at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Haute Couture S/S 2011 show! The hair is wild and the super looked fantastic on the runway. dramatic winged liner matched with ruby red lips
I love the soft makeup seen at Valentino’s S/S 2011 Haute Couture show! The model’s eyebrows were bleached and a soft mauve-y pink was blended around their eyes. The makeup complimented the clothing so well!
Makeup Artist, Linda Cantello was the key artist for Armani Prive’s S/S 2011 Haute Couture Show in Paris yesterday. She and her team gave the models sculpted, full brows, deep plum lips and attached a small rhinestone at the corner of the bottom lip.
Yesterday, Christian Dior presented his S/S 2011 Haute Couture Collection in Paris and as always, the makeup and hair is killer.
Makeup Artist, Pat McGrath, and her team gave models the familiar yet flawless, technicolor eyes and bold lips we’re used to seeing on a Dior runway.
Chanel showed their Spring/Summer 2011 line today at the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris. The makeup was simple, with several unique accents.
Makeup artists applied a rosy pink blush right below the eye, and on top the the model’s cheekbones. I love how this subtle detail takes the look from everyday to high fashion.
The rest of the makeup was kept super clean, except for the thick block of liner applied from the center of the eye, upwards and into a squared off block, rather than the classic wing.
Hair guru, Guido, created the amazing hair spotted at Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2011 show. I can’t get over how intricate and incredible this looks! Allure magazine reported that hairstylists working behind the scenes used over 80 cans of hairspray to get the model’s runway ready!!!!
With all of the full eyebrows on the runway this season, I am loving YSL’s bleached brow (seen a few days at Paris Fashion Week). Looks amazing with the burgundy lip!
The rock and roll inspired hair and makeup at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 show is to die for. I’m loving the Joan Jett wigs and imperfect eye makeup!
The models walking in Christian Dior’s Spring 2011 show were given a modern and colorful 1950′s inspired look. Bright colored shadows were applied to the eyelids, stopping right at the crease, along with winged liner and very full brows.
