The annual Met Gala is the highlight of fashion where designers, celebrities, and socialites get a chance to put their creativity and fashion to full force to create dramatic red carpet outfits.
Every year, the Met Gala shows off breathtaking, beautifully crafted gowns surrounding a theme. This year’s theme ” PUNK: Chaos to Couture” was a departure from previous themes where designers and invitees could don generally elegant, couture gowns. The PUNK theme threw many into disarray. Most of these celebrities and socialites do not dress in the style of punk. Nope, they are vying to be the most beautiful and are used to looking like princesses.
We found out who embraced adventure with the PUNK theme while others limped out, too afraid of not looking beautiful! Celebrities like Heidi Klum, Uma Thurman, Renee Zellweger gave up on the theme and went for the typical glamorous celebrity look. They and their gowns were beautiful, but there certainly was no punk! Couldn’t you just take a risk for ONE night and try a different style??? Isn’t that what fashion is about!!!
Stars like Madonna, Nicole Richie, Elle Fanning were so fully committed to the theme and carried it off without worrying if they were beautiful. It was great! There were so many stars wearing Givenchy / Tisci outfits that it seemed Givenchy was trying too hard to get press coverage to promote their brand. The allure of dressing just a few stars was lost with Givenchy.Sarah Jessica Parker, ever the style queen, pulled off an amazing ensemble in the punk mood in a Giles Deacon gown, Philips Treacy hat, and knee high Christian Louboutin boots. Her lace underwear was exposed as she walked up the stairs, maybe people should stop calling it a wardrobe malfunction and see it as part of her Punk outfit! It completely matched her look!
Here are the best outfits from stars who dared to embrace the Punk Couture theme!
