Tonight is this year’s Met Gala, which marks the start of the museum’s latest summer-long fashion exhibition, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” While some ritualistic ways to prepare on this day include looking at the best moments of years past, scandalous dresses from the year you were born, and co-chair Rihanna’s 2015 table dance, the Met has blessed us with an unprecedented beauty addition to its gift shop. In addition to Versace merch and what’s sure to be a religiously chic coffee table book, visitors will be able to purchase a special edition makeup collection from Pat McGrath Labs.
The Mother of Makeup herself is the perfect choice to create inaugural beauty products for fashion’s highest holiday, as her over-the-top aesthetic rules the runways and has earned widespread adoration. McGrath has decided to mix beloved products with new additions: her Met cosmetics range will include a special edition of her recent, crown-adorned Mothership IV: Decadence palette as well as a new lipgloss, Lust: Gloss Aliengelic. To tie it all together, the packaging will feature artwork from this year’s exhibit. No doubt, the mix of the makeup icon’s sparkly, futuristic magic with classic Catholic maximalism is a cause for rejoicing.
In a statement, McGrath remarked on the influence religious history and artifacts have on her work. With the new collection’s ornate packaging, her love of sparkles resembling a blinding light, and her reputation as the makeup artist fashion worships everywhere from the Gala to Fashion Week, these connections are strong. While it’s unknown who may debut this new release tonight on the Upper East Side, the glimmering eye and lip looks are sure to be everywhere as chic museum attendees commemorate their experience.
Pat McGrath Labs’ collection for the Met will be at the museum’s Fifth Avenue location’s “Heavenly Bodies” gift shop throughout the summer, and some products will also be available at the Cloisters.
