Met Gala 2013. This Year: Punk!

It’s that time of year again when Hollywood’s finest get together for the annual MET Gala hosted by Vogue. This year they were celebrating the opening of the PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This led to some very interesting interpretations and visions of the look by designers, make-up artists, and stars wearing the creations.

Here is a glimpse of some of what was seen on the red carpet……

Chloe Green, Jourdan Dunn Ashley Madekwe 

To start with is Chloe Green,  Jourdan Dunn, Ashley Madekwe, and Nicole Ritchie sporting designs which were custom designed for Vogue by the retailer adored by millions of students by the name of Topshop. Not so sure about Nicole’s hair style though, I’m thinking it’s more Halloween than punk!

I’ve got to say Ann Hathaway looks amazing here. Her new blonde hair colouring is a dramatic (but good) change from the hair she had to have for Les Miserables.

Beyonce was bound to have something creative on that night, and she sure didn’t fail to impress with this interesting ensemble designed by Givency. The gloves I can handle, but the boots not so much!Gwyneth Paltrow vintage Valentino
Miley Cyrus Marc Jacobs

I think this vintage Valentino dress worn by Gweneth Paltrow was either loved or hated.. I’m personally liking this dress. Ok, so it doesn’t channel punk, but it’s an interesting design with the 3/4 sleeves and sheer panel.

Miley Cyrus on the other hand? Well it’s rather punk and even though it’s by one of my favourite designers, (Marc Jacobs), I just can’t bring myself to like this!

Marion Cotillard jennifer lawrence

Above is Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard. The peach asymmetrical is lovely, and is given an extra twist with the gorgeous houndstooth shoes.

Philip Treacy

SJP was sure to raise eyebrows doing this pose on the red carpet! Her head-piece is designed by none other than the king of millinery, Sir Philip Treacy.


Katy Perry & Jlo wearing their take on punk. In love with Jlo’s quiff and make-up.

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute Gala

These are a few of my favourites from the night. Rooney Mara’s gown by Givenchy is a beautiful mix of lace and hard lines from the neck-line and zips.

Cara Delivine is wearing Burberry Prorsum, and Jamie King was a definite winner in the style stakes with her custom designed Topshop outfit. To finish is this beautiful photo of Taylor Swift with striking smoky eyes, & wearing J Mendel.
