The biggest night in fashion is returning after a pandemic hiatus and stars are getting excited! See how Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union and more are getting their Met Gala glam on.

It's Met Gala Monday!

The biggest night in fashion, famously held on the first Monday in May, returns tonight with a "more intimate" affair and strict health and safety protocols after its pandemic hiatus. Although this year will look a little different (face masks are required indoors except when eating or drinking, and proof of COVID vaccination is a must), the excitement is just the same.

Before the stars hit the red carpet to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's new two-part exhibition, titled In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, they're starting their glam sessions bright and early. From facials to last-minute fittings, see all the ways this year's Met Gala guests are prepping for the most hotly anticipated red carpet event of the year.

Gabrielle Union

On the eve of Met Monday, Union visited celebrity aesthetician Joanna Czech for a relaxing facial using luxurious 111Skin products. After the treatment, the star snapped two selfies of her glowing, barefaced complexion.

"Really?!?!?! Nawwwwwwww but for real tho... 🥰🤗😛
#FreshFaceStaysLaced @joannaczechofficial @111skin for the win with the pre-Met facial 🖤💥🖤," Union captioned her fresh-faced selfie.
