With a different theme every year, and hosted by fashion magazine Vogue in New York City, the Met Ball or Met Gala is the fashion world’s best red carpet event with an exclusive guest lists of stars, models, designers, and Hollywood’s A-list.
This year, the theme Punk: from Chaos to Couture added more edge to the gala event with celebrities wowing us with leather, lace, studs and even punk hairdo and make-up. This is what happens when Punk meets Couture … Can anybody say AWESOME?!
THE BEST DRESSED:
Nina Dobrev looked stunning in a black Monique Lhuillier gown.
Rooney Mara, breathtaking in this Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy. The combination of lace and zipper gave it the perfect sexy edge twist.
Emma Watson looking impeccable as always in Prabal Gurung. Hermione who?
Emmy Rossum in a plunging V-neck Donna Karan Atelier sequin gown.
The 23 year old Taylor Swift threw away her usual romantic look and pulled off a more daring J Mendel edgy dress with a beaded neckline. Now if she could only write something as grownup as her look…
Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence in a simple black strapless Dior gown added drama to her look with a netting over her face and blood red lips.
Ashley Green in a black Marchesa gown with gold prints.
Anne Hathaway in Valentino. The platinum is very punk… Approved!
It girl of the moment Cara Delevingne in an also plunging V-neck studded dress from Burberry.
Gwyneth Paltrow in a hot pink gown by Valentino. I think she could be a little sexier, especially after that great fighting scene in iron man 3. Her abs were rock solid, so she can pull off wearing less.
Kerry Washington in Vera Wang. The leather glove is very sexy but the combination of gloves, lace, and floral print dress is a little too much.
Elle Fanning in Rodarte. Not a big fan of the full Tye-die skirt … Like other critics have said, it looks like she just came back from summer camp.
Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler. A bit deceiving and boring for a fashionista.
The Olsen twins.
Ashley Olsen in Vintage Dior and Mary-Kate Olsen in Vintage Chanel. Girls, we all know your styles are very different and unique, but what is up with that orange parachute and fur kimono ?
We added this category to highlight some of the celebrities that managed to catch our full attention, whether it be good or not so fabulous.
Beyonce in Givenchy. This may not be her best dress but Queen Bee looks literally like she’s on FIRE!
Katy Perry was definitely out there from her crown, to her cross-shaped earrings to the thousands of beads featured in her Dolce & Gabanna dress making up a religious design from the mosaics of Sicily’s cathedral.
Madonna in Givenchy. With just fishnet stockings and no pants on, Madonna arrived on the red carpet leaving us all in astonishment as usual.
And of course style icon Sarah Jessica Parker in a gorgeous abstract print gown by Giles Deacon and with PhillipTracy head piece that had us all stop and stare.
KIM!!!!! I wish I didn’t have to be rude, but come on! There was nothing remotely okay about this dress. Pregnant women glow, but even that couldn’t save this travesty. Guess it’s another way for this sister to steal the spotlight …
ROONEY MARA pulled her hair slick back with a clear complexion, big strong brows and bold dark lips.
JENIFER LOPEZ looking fierce with her pompadour hair style, smokey eyes, and natural glowing skin.
KRISTEN STEWART looked stunning in dark red smokey eyes.
NICOLE RICHIE pulled of her snowy bouffant hair do.
We cannot forgot MILEY CYRUS who looked punk personified.
