How To Get Nina Dobrev’s Makeup from the Met Gala: Birchbox Intern Diaries
On Tuesday morning, over office was buzzing with chatter about one of the biggest fashion events of the year: the Met Gala. After fervently discussing and voting on our favorite celebrity looks from the evening, we decided that our favorite interpretations of the punk theme involved very dramatic eye makeup and well-crafted updos.
This week on the Birchbox Intern Diaries, I wanted to recreate my pick for look of the night worn by Vampire Diaries star, Nina Dobrev. While her dramatic cat eye isn’t a day look I would normally wear, it was fun to experiment with something further away from my normal neutral colors.  Watch to learn how to get the look for yourself!

What was your favorite style from the evening? Let us know in the comments!

Our Editors’ Favorite Looks From The Met Gala

There are two red carpets that we watch every year with bated breath: the Oscars and, of course, the Met Ball. All the stars come out for these fashion-forward events, and we couldn’t take our eyes off of all the gorgeous looks that strutted down Fifth Avenue last night. Here are a few of our editors’ favorite, unforgettable styles from the evening:

Camilla Belle

I had a hard time picking a favorite, but I don’t think anyone was as stunning as Camilla Belle (although Diane Kruger did look pretty superb). I absolutely adored Belle’s curve-hugging beaded gown, which struck the exact right balance between sexy and glamorous. What’s more, her hair and makeup were the perfect compliment to her dazzling dress. And kudos to the star for choosing such a daring, deep red pucker. Usually, that wine-stained shade is reserved for the winter, but I think the actress is on to Hollywood’s hottest new trend for the summer. —Meredith

Top 10 Hair and Makeup Looks At The Met Gala

It’s always fun to see celebs go overboard for the annual Met Gala. I love all the glamour and drama — it’s an irresistible combo. This year was no exception, with many a famous face going far beyond overboard and into the realm of just plain old bad. (I refuse to name names, and since everyone has seen the pictures by now, much of it goes without saying.) Instead, I’d rather focus on the good, and the truly stellar. There were several stars that fit that bill last night. Below are my favorite hair and makeup looks from the event — who do you think were the true standouts?

Best Long and Loose: Blake Lively and Gwyneth Paltrow both wore their hair down last night in soft, cascading waves. Everything from the shine to the soft curls to the long layers is captivating and enviable. Forget Goop and Gossip Girl, these two leading ladies should start a haircare line. It would sell through the roof.

Best Use of Color: Makeup is meant to be fun, so it’s great to see actresses experimenting vibrant colors. Ginnifer Goodwin single-handedly has me rethinking blue shadow—her eyes look incredible!—and Emma Stone reaffirms my obsession with fuchsia lipstick.  

Best Updos: Updos on a major red carpet are a dime a dozen, but Ashley Greene and Amy Adams really stood out. Greene’s low-slung side bun is incredibly elegant and Adams’ forehead-skimming braid has me itching to experiment with romantic plaits.

Best Hollywood Retro Look: Leave it to A-lister Diane Kruger to perfectly pull-off Old Hollywood Glamour, from her sculpted tendrils to her bright red pucker. Up-and-comer Emma Roberts also sported the same retro hair, but chose to pair it with more natural makeup for a younger, sweeter look.

Best Short Hair: Brooklyn Decker’s lob (a.k.a. long bob) has been a recent obsession of mine, and could she have picked a better dress to highlight her new cut? (The answer, in case you were wondering, is no.) Even though Decker is still my hair crush of the moment, I give major props to Michelle Williams who yet again rocked a super-pretty pixie—that style soooo does not work on everyone.
