We asked three artists to illustrate our favourite Met Gala looks

Kendall Jenner

The look: Atelier Versace The artist: Jocelyn Teng "It took me about an hour to draw Kendall because of all the lines and details on her dress. I started on her face first and worked my way down. I wanted to make sure the illustration is sleek, elongated and clean like her overall look. I love the fresh colour combination with the linear complex patterns on this dress – it is simply stunning!" - Jocelyn Teng READ MORE: 20 Met Gala looks we'll never forget

Taylor Swift

The look: Louis Vuitton The artist: Jocelyn Teng "I drew Taylor first because I was inspired by her overall silhouette. I started on her face and her hair first, then worked on the outline of dress. I really wanted to make sure her posture matched her attitude and look, so the stance had to be perfect. My favourite part about her outfit is her killer shoes! It took me about 40 minutes to complete this drawing." - Jocelyn Teng READ MORE: Yes, you can wear a denim skirt to the office

Emma Watson

The look: Calvin Klein Collection The artist: Stephanie McKay "I really wanted to focus on the drama of the train of the gown and the fabric.

Kate Bosworth

The look: Dolce & Gabbana The artist: Stephanie McKay "Dolce & Gabbana are one of my favourite designers to sketch. I liked the mix of texture and colour in this piece and how feminine Kate looked.
