Fashion isn’t the only thing to get excited about for this year’s Met Gala as the museum has something special to launch. Inspired by the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibit, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s will be launching a makeup collection with none other than Pat McGrath.
On Instagram she posted a teaser video with the caption, “Pat McGrath Labs is honored to be the first ever beauty brand sold at the iconic The Met Store.”
The collaboration will include a new lip gloss shade called Aliengelic, which is a pink hue and has a duochrome finish. There will also be a Mothership IV: Decadence Eyeshadow Palette.
When asked about the collaboration, Pat said, “I feel incredibly close to this year’s show—many of the extraordinary pieces featured are from shows and campaigns I worked on so to me, it represents some of the most beloved, groundbreaking moments throughout my career as a makeup artist. For the Metropolitan Museum of Art to include makeup and makeup artistry alongside some of the greatest masterworks of Western art is truly exceptional.”
The collection will be available at the gift shop but it will also be released online tomorrow for those who aren’t in New York.
