The HBA's Architects of Beauty Shine At The Met Gala 2019

Last night the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City held its 21st annual Met Gala. With this year's theme "Camp: Notes On Fashion," celebrities filled the pink carpet with their extravagant over-the-top outfits. But of course the big stars of the night were the Hollywood Beauty Awards winners and nominees behind all the hair, makeup, and styling looks presented at the fundraising gala. The camp theme, did not call for the obvious image of wilderness that comes to mind but an exaggeration of fashion in a comedic and extravagant way. Kooky... but make it fashion! 

Opening the carpet was Co-Chair Lady Gaga who showed off not one but four different looks designed by Brandon Maxwell. The looks were styled by 2019 HBA winning styling duo, Sandra Amador & Tom Eerebout, with makeup by two-time 2018 and 2019 HBA winner Sarah Tanno, and hair by 2019 hairstyling nominee Frederic Aspiras.

2019 makeup winnerYolonda Fredrick and 2018 hair nominee Cesar Ramirez collaborated alongside Ciara who rocked a fabulous emerald green gown inspired by music legend Diana Ross.
