We Had an Artist Live Paint All the Best 2016 Met Gala Looks

Since its debut in 1948, the Met Gala has been the annual themed event where bold, head-turning fashion statements are made. For this year's event many expected nothing less. 

Although nothing will ever compare to Rihanna's 2016 Guo Pei ensemble, there were a few memorable looks — some good, some bad — at Monday night's "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" themed event.

Mic asked fashion illustrator artist James Skarbek of @Jimmyillustrated to live paint some of our fave celebs as they walked up the red carpet. 

He started with a micron pen to lay a thin-lined foundation for each drawing. Skarbek then used water-soluble brush pens to build subtle tones, before finishing with a mixture of inks and watercolors. 

Take a look at the beautiful results below:
