The stars shine at the costume gala, from head to toe — and we have exclusive tips on how you can get their sleek nail looks!

Kristen Stewart, Lea Michele, Taylor Swift, Diana Agron and Dakota Fanning came out in amazing beauty looks at the Met Ball on May 2 in NYC, down to their nude nails! We spoke with Lea‘s manicurist Alicia Torello to find out exactly what the Glee star wore — so you can, too!

Along with beautiful makeup and hair, neutral-toned nails helped make the gorgeous red carpet looks of Kristen, Lea, Taylor and Dakota complete!

Alicia tells exclusively that Lea wore Essie’s ‘au natural’ on her hands because she wanted a nice beige neutral color: “This color goes really well with her skin tone.”

Alicia says neutral nails were the trending color all across the ball. “There were a lot of brighter dresses and ornate details on the dresses so they kept the nails more mellow with a soft neutral,” she notes.

Even Lea’s Glee BFF Diana also went for this natural nail look — you definitely can’t go wrong with a this nail color!

But pedicures are a completely different ball-game. For Lea’s toes, Alicia gave her Chanel’s ‘Vamp. — “It was different. The deeper red was a cool contrast to her bright red dress.”

Who do YOU think wore this trend? Tell us!
