The poet and Met Gala co-host Amanda Gorman showed up on the red carpet in a look that pays tribute to the Statue of Liberty. She paired an array of sequins cascading across her face with a Swarvoski crystal-studded headpiece by Jennifer Behr.

Actor Julia Garner wore an embellished sheer gown, a look that matched her bejeweled cat eye. Three sparkly studs accentuated her flicks of eyeliner, and she also rocked shimmer in her inner corners.

Model Ella Emhoff posed on the red carpet with Garner. Their outfits were both sequined, but so were the rhinestones amplifying their eye makeup looks.

Suicide Squad and Euphoria actor Storm Reid brought pearls to the red carpet in an unexpected fashion: Rather than having them adorn the nape of her neck, she sported pearlescent gems in the form of floating eyeliner.

Lil Nas X came ready to serve. The musician switched through three looks before settling on a bedazzled catsuit. Subtly complementing his gold outfit(s) were tiny gold decals dotting the corners of his eyes.
