MET GALA 2018 Marissa Machado x Nick Jonas
One of the biggest nights in fashion is the Met Gala - it is iconic style from start to finish. The star-studded event is a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Attendees ranging from celebrities, designers and industry-staples bring to life the night’s theme via stunning fashion looks and creative beauty and grooming. The gala also kicks off the grand opening of the Costume Institutes’ annual fashion exhibit at the museum.
In 2018, the theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”, and V76 teamed up with celebrity groomer Marissa Machado and Nick Jonas. Nick’s look was giving major Roman Emperor vibes, and the grooming was all about the edgy cut. Marissa partnered with Nick’s long-time barber Ronnie McCoy III to bring the full vision to fruition.
After Ronnie whipped Nick’s hair into shape (check out what our friends at GQ had to say about achieving his cut) Marissa stepped in, wielding her favorite grooming tools. She prepped Nick’s skin using Daily Balance Facial Moisturizer and gave lips moisture without the shine using V76 Lip Balm.
Marissa spritzed Nick’s wet hair with Tonic Hair & Scalp to get it ready for styling. She then blow dried his hair to create texture. Marissa finished off the perfect messy, not too-polished look using Texture Clay. She worked the product into the root and then style to create shape.
In our honest opinion, Nick stole the show – his look was on-theme but also totally wearable in real life. We bow down to you, Nick and Marissa. Well done!
