Get the Look: Gabrielle Union at the Met Ball

Fiona StilesComment

hair: Larry Sims  //  dress: Prada

Gabrielle went to the Met Ball as a guest of Miuccia Prada wearing an incredible two piece bralette and skirt replete with feathers and mirrors.  Her hair was back in a braid, so her face took center stage.

The inspiration was simple, elegant, fierce beauty.  More editorial than red carpet, with a strong brow and nothing lip color, the soft smokey eye commanded all of the attention.  

I used a soft, domed brush for the eyes, pulling the shadow out to elongate the eyes. I also swept a good amount of shadow under the eyes, blending it low below the lash line. A strong brow defined her face and framed her eyes and a neutral lip kept the look understated.
