Olivia Rodrigo Channelled Audrey Hepburn’s Iconic Beauty At The 2023 Met Gala | British Vogue

Olivia Rodrigo has mastered the art of re-creating the grunge glamour of the mid-’90s – that ingénue aura marked by bohemian hair, minimal make-up, and a slightly affected air. But to play into the Met Gala 2023’s theme, Rodrigo and her glam team looked to another bygone era: Old Hollywood.

Gone were allusions to Alanis Morissette, replaced by an ode to Audrey Hepburn – one furthered by a black and white gown that called to mind the Ascot races of My Fair Lady. Hairstylist Clayton Hawkins swept Rodrigo’s signature lengths into a taut midi knit, a hint of volume at the crown leading to quietly curled baby bangs. “I’ve always wanted to do a baby bang on Olivia, and I’m so glad we got to do it!” says Hawkins, who perfected her look with the help of Tangle Teezer’s The Ultimate Styler. Though the look was new territory for the pop star, certain touches (like a black manicure) ensured the moment was in keeping with her own tastes.

“The overall aesthetic was quiet but powerful, sculpted glam,” says make-up artist Nina Park, who was inspired by the graphic lines of Rodrigo’s gown to create a bold brown eye, softened by a nude lip. And the finishing touch? Winged liner using Crushliner Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir Intense, of course – in Park’s words, “Olivia’s favourite.”
