It’s Met Monday, which means that all of our favorite A-listers are taking to the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this year, in celebration of the life and legacy of Karl Lagerfeld. In addition to tons of archival looks that honored the late director of Chanel, the celebs in attendance also turned out some stellar makeup looks, including a ton of nude lips.
