Cara Delevingne Turns Heads at the 2015 Met Gala
There was plenty of bare skin on display at this year’s Met Gala – from Miley Cyrus to J. Lo to Beyoncé. But Delevingne, the British model, made sure that her bare skin was well adorned for this important occasion. The Supermodel turned out to be one of the standout guests on the night. On top of her cut-out jumpsuit from Stella McCartney, she added decorations on her body that set heads rolling.
Cara sported her favored Smokey eye and strong brows and styled her locks back into a tight bun and while showcasing her cleavage in the plunging ensemble.
As some described her, the blonde beauty turned her skin into a canvas with classical Chinese bird-and-flower painting. The paintings stood out just as if they were done by scholar painters of ancient China. The person behind the tattoos is Keith McCurdy, who has created several of her tattoos in the past; including the word “BACON” written on the bottom of her foot the and the lion’s head on her index finger.
The strokes of the tattoos follow the curves of Cara Delevingne’s body, from the swallows that poke out on the side of her arm, gazing up at her smokey eye makeup to the floral branches that twist around her cleavage and neck. There are also the calligraphic tree trunks climbing the length of her gangly limbs, and swallows poking out on the side of her arm, sitting on the branches and gazing up at Delevingne’s tight bun, smoky eye makeup, and bold brows. The swallow symbolizes the arrival of spring in classical Chinese painting.
Cara’s temporary tattoos were a fitting beauty tribute to the China, they were temporary, however. Through the Look Glass exhibition, the tattoos were beautiful, subtle, and so much more creative than another mandarin collar.
The 2015 Met Gala was held to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. The theme was “China: Through the Looking Glass”. From the theme, the outfits were expected to reflect the influence of East Asia. Tickets cost $25,000 each.
Other attendees included Sienna Miller, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Amal Clooney, who turned heads in reds and gold.
