Whoa! Katy Perry completely turned heads on the 2016 Met Gala red carpet, and her hair and makeup were totally on point with the Ball’s futuristic theme. She definitely looked like something out of this world with no eyebrows and a giant cone of hair!
Way to get our attention! Katy Perry, 31, absolutely owned the Met Gala’s grand entrance with her incredibly bold and adventurous hair and makeup, most noticeably her total lack of eyebrows. Her dark hair was swept into a towering “modern day beehive”, so keep reading for more on Katy’s daring red carpet beauty!
Katy never fails to blow us away with her risk-taking beauty, and this time she enhanced her gorgeous blue eyes by bleaching her eyebrows, giving us a whole lot of face! Makeup artist Todd Delano gave Katy bright blue eyeliner and lashes with a dark burgundy lip that added to her dramatic black gown. Wow, this is one look that will have people talking for a long time, but she definitely came to play with the night’s theme “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
The “Roar” singer wore her dark hair in a huge cone that her hairstylist, Chris Appleton, is calling a “modern day beehive.” To get the look, Chris worked with Oscar Blandi products, using a lot of Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and Oscar Blandi Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray to create height and hold.
Explaining the look, he said “The beehive is an iconic hairdo that we modernized and turned up a few notches to keep with the Manus x Machina theme. A romantic hairstyle wouldn’t work. The beehive needed to look sharp and futuristic. I wanted her hair to look strong and striking yet still simple. Katy’s dress is incredible and we wanted the hair to compliment and tie in with the overall look without competing with it.” Stream Katy’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
Prior to Katy’s completed her dramatic makeup job, a friend tweeted out the “before” look and boy was that a whole lot of face without the eyebrows!

Unfortunately Katy didn’t walk the red carpet with her hottest accessory, super serious boyfriend Orlando Bloom, 39. The pair have been inseparable ever since meeting at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards in Jan. and they’ve hit plenty of events together ever since, only Katy has made sure to walk the red carpet solo. The couple arrived together in NYC over the weekend so he’s probably inside the Met Ball waiting for her. We’ll have to wait to get a shot of them coming out of the event to see how dapper they look together!
