From New York to L.A., the red carpets were full of Halloween inspiration. If you’re going to put on a pair of ears and call it a costume, then take notes from Nicole Richie, who sported a delicate Maison Michel headpiece and thick, cat-eye liner. Add a pair of false lashes to complete the glamorous feline effect. Want to get into the spirit, but keep things subdued? Slick on an opaque tangerine lipstick à la Olivia Munn at last night’s Giorgio Armani One Night Only show and soirée. Draw a thin band of black along your upper lash line for bit of flair—flicking it up ever so slightly at the outer corners.
Full disclosure: We had no idea Zooey Deschanel was at the Met Ball last night, until numerous sources credited her to that seersucker Tommy Hilfiger gown—and a fringe-free face! The New Girl star was downright unrecognizable without her signature brow-grazing bangs. [Perez Hilton]
Just as we were getting ready to lament the lack of punk piercings on last night’s red carpet, save for the bevy of jewel-encrusted ear cuffs that made the rounds, we took a closer look at Jessica Biel, only to discover that Mrs. Justin Timberlake had slipped on a septum ring for the occasion. Well played. [Daily Mail]

The sea of Givenchy dresses aside, last night’s Met gala was as much about beauty as it was about fashion—which shouldn’t be that much of a surprise; after all, punk’s lasting legacy has done just as much for the advancement of black eyeliner and hair color as it has for studs and safety pins. Miley’s spikes, Madonna’s black bob, and Diane von Furstenberg’s epic curls come to mind as some of the evening’s biggest beauty moments, although there was plenty more to talk about—or text about, as it were; we were engaged in a steady stream of phone commentary with no less than three style-savvy friends at once as the chaos and couture unfolded on the red carpet. Below, we’ve listed a few of our favorite punk trends, reimagined for the red carpet—and in face-off form—because while the Met isn’t an awards show, per se, there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.
The Look: Peroxide Goes Platinum
The Contenders: Anne Hathaway vs. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie and her hairstylist, Luke Chamberlain, set out to make a color statement on the red carpet via Chamberlain’s silver-white, spray-in streaks, but the night’s mane event belonged to Anne Hathaway, who showed up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a brand-new, bright blonde dye job. “I decided to go for a look that [was] glam, edgy, and yet very youthful and fun,” celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer explained of the slicked up style she gave Hathaway’s crop, which was freshly bleached courtesy of Marie Robinson.
Amanda Seyfried is on her way to earning the coveted beauty trifecta. The Les Mis star already has a cosmetics contract with Clé de Peau, and today comes news that she will replace Liv Tyler as the face of Givenchy’s Very Irresistible fragrance. Now all she needs is a hair contract! [WWD]

Less shocking but equally statement-making is Nicole Richie’s latest hair evolution, a golden-brown bob with bangs. [Glamour]
Nicole Richie is no stranger to bold makeup. The designer who launched her first fragrance this month swears by statement lips, smoky lids, and cat-eyes, which she frequently draws on with MAC Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black. “I’ve worn it forever,” she once told us—which is why we were surprised to see her at the 7th annual Teen Vogue Fashion University in New York this weekend sporting a very natural, dare we say business-casual, beauty look. Richie cashed in the hyperstylized hair, red mouth, and sultry shadows for a creamy blush, a sweep of brown eye grease, and lots and lots of lashes. And you know what? It was working for her. Would you say less is more?
