Of course, this is so cliche of me to blog about the celeb fashion at the Met Gala. But I live for the look for the competition and just love of style variations that are displayed. So many have illustrated and showcases the fala fashion that was present.
Fashion heavy hitters and Hollywood’s finest were in attendance for the 2013 Met Gala Monday night in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — some dressed in their best interpretations of punk — for the annual Costume Institute Benefit ball.
For an event nicknamed the “Oscars of the East Coast,” the outside of the Met was a swarm of photographers and spectators, whose frenzied flashes nearly blinded the guests as they ascended the grand steps.
Everyone from Beyonce to Vivienne Westwood to Lena Dunham was in attendance for the Met Gala, some dressed in punk garb for the event hosted by co-chairs Rooney Mara, Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo.
The theme for 2013 was punk ahead of the Met’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, which opens on Thursday. The exhibition documents punk’s presence on the runway since the days of the Sex Pistols, Blondie and Vivienne Westwood to its continuing influence today. The exhibit has seven galleries with 100 designs for men and women, music videos and audio. “Punk: Chaos to Couture” opens for the general public on Thursday and runs until Aug. 14.
This year, many of the fashion glitterati traded their formal wear for safety pins, spikes and mohawks. Among them were Miley Cyrus in a black fishnet Marc Jacobs dress, Elle and Dakota Fanning in edgy Rodarte dresses, Kerry Washington in a purple and leather Vera Wang dress and Sarah Jessica Parker in an ornate Giles gown with a giant Philip Treacy hat and custom Christian Louboutin boots to match. Anne Hathaway, wearing vintage Valentino, was inspired by punk icon Debbie Harry to dye her natually dark hair blonde and, according to the Oscar winner, she may just keep it that way.
