The makeup absolutely matched the youthful, edgy vibe Rodrigo was going for here. Her makeup artist gave her a teeny-tiny black wing, punctuated by pencil-thin lines just under her brow bone and in the inner third of her eye. It’s an uplifted take on the graphic eye makeup looks that have been trending for some time. As for the rest of the makeup, Rodrigo’s brows were kept fluffly and full, and her skin glowing and clean. On her lips, there is just a flush of a matte hue that looks like a sheered out bright pink or red.
Clayton Hawkins, her go-to stylist and the man responsible for Rodrigo’s retro ’90s and early aughts looks, was, of course, on hand to work his magic on the singer’s crown tonight. “For this year’s Met Gala with Olivia Rodrigo, we wanted to keep it clean and chic and let her beauty speak for itself,” Hawkins explains.
Rodrigo’s hair is styled in knots with the ends left out, which fan out in the back. Of course, since she is a Gen Z girlie, her hair is parted just down the middle. Hawkins started on damp hair, brushing it out with a Tangle Teezer and then applying the Oribe Supershine Moisturizing cream to prep before blow-drying her hair straight with a Dyson Supersonic dryer and going over it all with the brand’s Corrale flatiron.
To get that super shiny, glassy finish, Hawkins used the Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil before pulling her hair back to create the knots. Then, he finished off the look with a misting of the Oribe Superfine Hairspray and just a touch more of oil.
The result? Well, you see it — total gorgeousness. This might be Rodrigo’s first Met Gala, but she slayed the red carpet like an old pro.
