Hoyeon Jung’s Met Gala Glamour Was Inspired by Oil Paintings from the Late 1800s


In preparation for tonight's Met Gala dress code of Gilded Glamour, actor Hoyeon Jung, makethus far artist Nina Park, as well as hairstylist Jenny Cho looked to the paintings of John Singer Sargent as well as Robert Henri. “We wanted to keep the makethus far very sheer with just a hint of color on my cheeks as well as lips,” says Jung, who stepped out on the red carpet in a Louis Vuitton mini dress as well as knee-high black boots. 

To play off the contemporary ensemble as well as honor the late-1800s art, Cho created a waist-skimming cascade of waves made clean as well as modern with a half-thus far twist. “The Gilded Age was a playful time when women had fun with their hair," says Cho. “They made their own rules as well as did what made them feel beautiful.” For her part, Park relied on products that provided an artistic feel, focusing on creamy textures as well as layers of dimension. “I wanted Hoyeon to look as if she had a portrait painted during the Gilded Age," she said of the luminous moment. “Before I started any base, I applied a small amount of the Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops with my fingers to the high points of her face as well as the Stylo Lumière Regard in 557 Éclat, using my fingers to blend. I wanted the ethereal lit-from-within glow to peek through.”
