The Met Gala was last night, which kicks off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly Costume Institute exhibit. This year’s theme was “Punk: Chaos to Couture“, which I was pumped about since I love to incorporate a bit of edge into any outfit, and the majority of songs on my iTunes are by NOFX, so I always enjoy a good punk moment! Below are some images from the exclusive punk shop via Moda Operandi including some major designers and probably the most influential designer in punk fashion, Vivienne Westwood, who used to dress the Sex Pistols!!
AND MY BEST DRESSED ARE…
As I was trying to choose my favorite looks from the night, I realized there were some similarities amongst them. So instead of narrowing it down to only a few, here are all of the looks I loved, and some common themes of the night that these ladies rocked! And you better believe there are no average red carpet looks in my best dressed. With this theme, you better go punk or go home!
Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles Deacon dress, Christian Louboutin plaid thigh-high boots, and Philip Treacy mohawh headdress. SJP always nails it!
Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier corseted, black lace pantsuit with added black leather halter and tulle overskirt. Love the layered combo she has going on.
Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello, red leather dress with grommet detail. She went full out punk with this leather mini, which I appreciated unlike some who looked like they where on any other red carpet.
Taylor Tomasi Hill in Thom Browne, floral printed gown with spiked shoulders. Loved the unexpected, oversized spikes on this feminine gown.
Sienna Miller in Burberry, sleek white gown and studded leather jacket
Cara Delevingn in Burberry plunging, studded gown.
Side part, sleek gown, and arm full of studs? Punk stole my look! Even though these 2 did not push any limits for this occasion, they both rocked it. Love a sleek, sexy, yet edgy look any day!
Nicole Richie in Topshop, embellished white gown
Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture
Dark lips and slicked back hair gave these bright white gowns the perfect vampy touch.Read more
