Met Gala 2013 – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”

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!!!

Met 20134Stars 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.Met 2013 1b TextSarah 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!

  1. I also really thought Kristin Stewart, Miley Cyrus (yes I just typed that to my own disbelief), Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway looked pretty punk couture also!

  2. Yes! Miley Cyrus & Nicole Richie definitely had that punk hair going for the theme! I’m not a huge fan of their fashion choices usually but give them thumbs up for the commitment! Anne Hathaway, Kristin Stewart and Jessica Biel looked good too! Kristin Stewart usually looks like she just got out of bed =P Thanks for checking out my post! =)
