• All eyes are on the dresses when the annual Met Gala rolls around, but for us, it's all about the hair and makeup. See who we considered to have the most standout beauty looks at last night's event.

    Most Dramatic: Beyoncé Knowles
    From her netted headpiece to her brick-colored lipstick, we couldn't stop staring at Bey.

  • Best Glow: Emma Stone
    While everyone else gushed about Emma's gorgeous braid, we were fixated on her glowing skin. Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin used Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Peach Light ($12.99, ulta.com) to brighten the actress's skin.

  • Most Hairspray: Kendall Jenner
    Kendall kept things pretty simple when it came to hair and makeup, but that didn't stop her from using a ton of hairspray to get big volume. We actually kind of like the '80s style on her.

  • Best Bob: Reese Witherspoon
    Reese gave her bob a glam makeover for the red carpet by smoothing it into subtle Old Hollywood waves. We love the look on her.
