How To Get Emmy Rossum’s Lace Met Gala Manicure

Emmy Rossum Met Gala Nails

While many stars took a much less literal approach to the punk-theme of last night’s Met Gala, actress Emmy Rossum really went for her version of chic-meets-punk.

Her elaborate ‘faux-hawk’ inspired updo created with a series of twists and braids, her intense brown smoky eye and her over-extended brows–all quite punk.

Her Donna Karan Atelier gown, on the other hand, was much more delicate yet still served as the inspiration for her elaborate punk-chic manicure.

butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador Katie Hughes created a custom nail effect for Emmy created with extra pieces of lace and crystals from the star’s dress, which were provided by Donna Karan.

Katie began by painting Emmy’s nails with two coats of butter LONDON’s Yummy Mummy, followed by one coat of the brand’s Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat.

Next, she cut individual pieces of lace to cover Emmy’s nails exactly, and gently placed them on the wet nails, letting the lace dry on top of the nail.

Once the nails were dry, Katie glued crystals on random spots on the nail.

The final product was surprisingly punk and completely unique. And while you likely won’t have designer lace, with supplies from a craft store, you can easily recreate this punk rock manicure at home.

Emmy Rossum In Donna Karan Atelier – 2013 Met Gala

Emmy Rossum In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Met Gala When Emmy Rossum arrived on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet in New York City, I have to say I barely recognized her.

The actress fully embraced her inner punk princess with a Donna Karan Atelier gown—and a bold beauty look to go with it.

The sheer, diaphanous dress trended more on the pretty side. After all, it still had beads, sequins and paillettes, as opposed to pins, spikes and studs.

Far more aggressive was her messy braided faux-hawk and a super-shadowed, exaggerated smokey eye.

Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and Iritdesign jewels, including a collection of knuckle rings and neck-grazing statement earrings, completed Emmy’s rebellious entrance.

Emmy Rossum attended The Onyx And Breezy Foundation’s ‘Saving Tails’ fundraiser in Hollywood, California on Saturday.

The pretty, self-styled actress wore a high-street look courtesy of British retailer Topshop.

Her summery look featured a sleeveless embroidered cotton blouse with a vibrant floral pleated skirt.

Tan sandals and a Stuart Weitzman gold ‘Laserpouchette’ bag accessorized her outfit, with a watermelon-pink lip colour to match her manicure and a side-swept braid completing her simple, fresh, ‘here comes the summer’ look.

Emmy Rossum In Christian Dior – New Yorkers for Children 10th Anniversary Spring Dinner

Emmy Rossum In Christian Dior - New Yorkers for Children 10th Anniversary Spring Dinner

Emmy Rossum looked lovely in head-to-toe Dior last night at the New Yorkers for Children 10th Anniversary Spring Dinner in New York City.

The ‘Shameless’ actress wore a black silk crepe embroidered Dior dress accented with Dior shoes and a Dior clutch. Her Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Cygne Blanc’ white gold and diamond earrings and ‘Cygne Blac’ white gold and diamond ring were the icing on the cake.

The star always looks flawless, and last night was no different. Her skin was luminous, and her baby pink lips were a fun and chic nod to spring beauty trends.

While the dress and simple hair chignon are elegant and timeless, the fun jewelry and makeup make the look appropriately youthful and fun for the young star.

You may have noticed that Emmy’s dress is very similar to the one worn by Olga Kurylenko yesterday evening.

Emmy Rossum In Carven – Out In New York City

Emmy Rossum In Carven - Out In New York City

Prior to attending the Jeffrey Fashion Cares 10th Anniversary Celebration, Emmy Rossum was spotted out in Chelsea, New York sporting a very colourful outfit.
The actress wore a Carven Resort 2013 look.

She teamed a lightweight cotton shirt bearing an illustration of Paris with a matching jacket featuring a notch collar and bracelet-length sleeves.

Instead of opting for a hat trick of Paris-print pieces, as featured in the look book, Emmy added a bright-orange Carven skirt (from the same collection) with a flared ruffled hemline to provide a more interesting mix of textures and colours.

A baby-blue quilted shoulder bag and tan pumps accessorized her look.

She has been on fire this week, both on and off the carpet. The actress, who claims she doesn’t have a stylist, is doing a very fine job on her own.
