The countdown is officially on until the 2016 Met Gala. Things were already getting started over the weekend when Vogue.com hosted a Met Gala cocktail party. While we have to wait just a bit longer for the dramatic beauty looks at the main event, the party did offer some wearable beauty inspiration.
Alexa Chung attended Vogue‘s cocktail party. She wore her signature tousled waves but accessorized with two sparkly clips placed on the side of her head.
The rest of Alexa’s makeup was kept fairly natural with just a hint of black eyeliner and peach lipstick.
The sparkly hair clips worked with the rest of Alexa’s mix-and-match look. She wore a baby blue coat with black tank top and patent pants. It’s a combination that is unexpected but works thanks to the mix of hard and soft elements.
We will have to wait a bit longer to see whether Alexa’s beauty look at the party is a preview for what she will be wearing for the Met Gala. Regardless, one thing you can guarantee is that there are going to be a lot more people accessorizing with sparkly barrettes.
