Alongside the gorgeous gowns and magical makeup moments on the 2017 Met Gala red carpet, there were some bold, breathtaking, and downright bizarre beauty looks that caused a stir of their own.

Discover the weird and wonderful world of the boldest beauty looks in Savoir Flair’s round up below.

Dree Hemmingway

Boasting barely-there bleached brows, makeup-free eyes, and super simple skin, actress and model Dree Hemingway went for a ghostly, Gothic feel, completely contrasting against the glitz and glamour of the red carpet.

Evan Rachel Wood

Turning the Gothic vibe up a notch, Evan Rachel Wood made blue her hue with her pastel turquoise tresses and deep, dark graphic eyes.

Cara Delevingne

Like something from another world, Cara Delevingne rocked a space age, sci-fi vibe with her sparkly silver beauty look. Not only did she spray paint her freshly shaved head with metallic silver, but she also adorned her scalp with silver jewels and covered her torso with a fine, silver glitter.

Jemima Kirke

Girls star Jemima Kirke added a bright pop of color to her otherwise simple makeup look with yellow and pink paint-like smudges around her eyes.

Rihanna

Rihanna set chins wagging with her daring Comme des Garçons gown, but she also got people talking thanks to her bold beauty look. Picking pinks and purples for her makeup palette, it was all about over-exaggerated shimmery fuchsia flush, color washed peepers, and a striking purple pout.

Grace Hartzel

Dressed in Dior Haute Couture, model Grace Hartzel went full on avant-garde with this Greta Garbo meets cabaret look.

Katy Perry

Made over by Pat McGrath, it’s hardly surprising that Katy Perry rocked the legendary makeup artist’s signature sparkles. Red glittery lips and midnight blue glittery eyes were the perfect addition to her seriously out-there custom-made Maison Margiela ensemble, designed by John Galliano.

Haley Bennett

Actress Haley Bennett looked like she had stepped straight out of an 18th century French painting and onto the red carpet with her elaborate floral headpiece, tightly curled locks, and china doll makeup look.
