One of the more, uh, unusual looks at the Met — and that’s saying a lot — was Tracee Ellis Ross who came as a …painting. Yes, you read that right.

Tracee‘s stylist Karla Welch explained the look:

“We’re going more…a piece of art, to be honest,” she said. “It’s how we make ourselves art. For me, camp is a vessel for art, and we took that into consideration. Also, a woman is a piece of art, so there’s something there as well.”

(FYI: Tracee is wearing a Moschino outfit, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.)

Her celebrity makeup artist, Martin, had the challenge if creating her beauty a look suitable to be framed:

SKIN

We have been discussing how important the skin is for this rather simple, but impactful look. I started layering glow to showcase Tracee’s already impeccable skin. I used Lancer Skincare’s The Method: Nourish to seal the moisture on top of the Lancer Omega Hydrating Oil to get a creamy, not shiny texture to her skin. I then applied the Lancer Dani Glowing Skin Perfector on her cheekbones.  I mixed the Omega Hydrating Oil with Glowing Skin Perfector on her collarbones and shoulders and back.

So that’s why she always glows. The secret is out!
