At long last, the most decadent day in fashion has arrived: the Met Gala—this year, with a perplexing and beguiling theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion. As thrilled as we are to see how celebs interpret this motif, the beauty editors on team Who What Wear are actually more intrigued by what happens before the red carpet even begins: skincare, makeup, and hair prep. Celebs' complexions and 'dos can make or break a look. So to find out how Met Ball powerhouses like Gigi Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and Lily Aldridge are prepping beauty-wise, we did a little snooping on social media to find their pre–Met Gala posts.
Scroll on for a first look at how celebrities are readying their skin, hair, and makeup for the big event—from facials to teeth whiteners to full-on makeup tutorials.
Lady Gaga's Laid-Back Approach to Met Prep
Lady Gaga, who is co-hosting tonight's event with Harry Styles, spoke to all of our innermost souls when she 'grammed this "un-prepped" pre–Met Gala shot from her flight to New York, captioned, "Met Gala here we come. Destination 'Camp,' so excited to co-chair Anna’s event. #MetGala #MarcJacobs #(and I didn’t shave my legs for 4 days which really completes the look) #ZoomIn #ladygaga #fashion thank you @sarahtannomakeup for the jacob’s shwag."
Adut Akech's Gold Face Mask
To get her skin in Met Gala shape, model Adut Akech indulged in a 'gram-worthy $783 (that's Australian dollars) 24-karat-gold face mask at Manhattan's Soma Spa. Beforehand, Akech received a HydraFacial (a popular skin-resurfacing and hydrating service), as well as high-frequency facial treatment to minimize pores.

Gigi Hadid readied her smile for the carpet with the teeth-whitening pen Kendall Jenner created in partnership with hip oralcare brand Moon.
Rihanna's Makeup-Free Selfie
Rihanna posted this makeup-free selfie on her Instagram Story, proving she clearly does not need a fancy facial to make her skin look Met Gala–level flawless.
Miley Cyrus's Chic Haircut

Priyanka Chopra's Beauty Assistant
Priyanka Chopra posted a few pre–Met Gala teases on her Instagram Story. No sneak peeks at her beauty look yet, but from this post, we know her adorable pupper is by her side.
