The best hair and beauty looks from the Met Ball Gala 2014

There are two ways to do a Met Ball beauty look: go all-out or play it safe. There is NO in-between.

As with outfit choices for this particularly special and notoriously flamboyant red carpet, make-up and hair has to be carefully considered. You can't just dab on a bit of pink eyeshadow and hope for the best. Even the classic smoky eye can be a miss on the wrong outfit.

So without further a-(hair)-do, take a look at the best and most interesting beauty looks from last night's red carpet.

And - not only do you get to see the close up on all the best beauty - we bring you tutorials for how to re-create the perfectly styled hair of Cara Delevingne, Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica-Parker.
