How do you mix punk rock and glamour? Since the theme for this year’s Met Gala—Punk: Chaos to Couture—was announced, the fashion world’s most celebrated faces and benefactors have been pondering this one. Some failed to get it (Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum and Kate Upton, we’re looking at you) but others hit it out of the park! Here are the stars we feel did the theme the most justice. What does your inner punk say?
Perfectly punk by Miley in all facets. A long-sleeved netted Marc Jacobs gown flattered her figure while remaining on the edge of risqué. And the hair? Rather than her usual slicked-back look, a spike ‘do worthy of any punk rocker. We love it.
Now, I wouldn’t normally classify a gorgeous open-back Burberry dress as “punk,” but coupled with that fierce studded cropped jacket, it looked perfect for the occasion.
With a black-and-white Maison Martin Margiela ensemble and swept hair, sharp eyes and popping red lips, Gwen definitely didn’t disappoint.
Overall, I was disappointed with the male talent on the red carpet. With such an amazing theme to work with, there wasn’t nearly enough experimentation. Sporting a blue-tipped Mohawk and the attitudinal stare to boot, Zachary Quinto stood out.
Damn! This woman is punk and she knows it. In a very leggy Anthony Vaccarello chain link mini, Anja Rubik blew us all away. Fierce eyes, matching mini and lips, and a quiff to boot? Anja’s look had it all.
Spectacularly dressed head-to-toe in Givenchy, event co-host Rooney Mara flaunted her amazing figure with a low-cut, zip-up gown with lace detailing. With vamp lips to complement her fair skin, Rooney’s punk was more of a soft, otherworldly vision. Definitely impressive.
Model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne did not disappoint, flying the British flag and flashing a lot of flesh in her sharply-studded Burberry number. The 20-year-old had punk down to a T, with a knuckleduster-style ring and sharp Perspex earrings by Dominic Jones jewellery, a dagger hanging from her neck, and heavily smoky eyes.
