Walking up the steps of The Metropolitan Art Museum in New York feels like so much more than walking up any ordinary steps. While I could spend a month browsing the incredible artistic works within, the iconic museum of art's exterior alone could tell a story. I envision scenes from classic films, Audrey Hepburn walking the same steps, to modern day Blair Waldof perched with her high society friends. Not to mention, the prestigious annual Met Gala hosting the world's most fashionable icons.
My sister and I decided to play Gossip Girl for the day. After walking Central Park, we arrived at The Met in the late afternoon, then wandered over to gawk at Nate Archibald's townhouse off 5th Avenue.
If only I was as fashionable at 16 years old...
The Met just calls for red lipstick! I'm wearing the "Icon" lip stain, super versatile for all skin tones (and how fitting for the occasion, right?) Seriously, it's amazing, with almost zero transfer once dry. However take note, once it's on, you're committed! Trying to remove without a good make-up remover will only result in a weird smudged-stained lip, trust me! Purchase it HERE. Rachel's more coral-tinted red lip is by Urban Outfitters. Purchase it HERE.
To complete the look, I paired with my loved Audrey sunnies - yes, named after the infamous Audrey Hepburn style sunglasses. Such an old Hollywood look I absolutely love! Shop Rachel and my outfits below.
