The 2013 Met Gala Goes Punk Part 1: The Best Dressed List

Posted on May 8, 2013 by

Beyoncé arrives fashionably late at this year’s Met Gala.

Fashion’s biggest red carpet took place this week as celebrities, models, and designers descended upon the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art ball. This year’s theme was punk in honour of their new exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture. While that was a fun idea, not that many attendees were able to pull off the punk concept. It was kind of like watching an episode of Project Runway where the episode’s challenge was too far out there for some of the designers to wrap their head around. It indeed resulted in one of the craziest Met Gala red carpets ever with so many spikes and studs paired with outrageous hair and makeup! I kind of have a feeling that next year’s theme won’t be so high concept (your move, Anna Wintour)! So let’s check out who made the cut on our best dressed list. And check back for Part 2: The Blahs and the Oh No’s!

Best Dressed

Nina Dobrev can rock on stage and the red carpet in this look, a perfect combo for the gala’s theme.

Loving the studded detail on supermodel Cara Delevingne‘s gown.

Nicole Richie‘s white hair was so jaw dropping and totally badass! The dress might not be punk but the overall look is.

Anne Hathaway‘s hair was also one of the biggest moments from the night. It worked wonders with that sleek dress.

Emma Watson keeps it minimal. Love the slicked back hair and one earring.

Rooney Mara proves you don’t have to rely on black and studs to look punk. It’s all in the attitude.

Sienna Miller‘s dress doesn’t scream punk, but her jacket sure does. I want to steal this jacket!

While other celebrities clearly had to make an effort to be punk, Gwen Stefani has been in the game for so long that she doesn’t even need to try.

You can probably send supermodel Anja Rubik back into a time machine to the punk era and she’ll fit right in seamlessly.

Same with Elizabeth Banks. She looks like she could be sisters with Ms. Rubik!

Amanda Seyfried‘s vintage dress isn’t very punk, but the print does have a lot of attitude which is what punk is all about.

Neither is Katy Perry‘s dress, but the attitude is all there!

Now if you were wondering what a punk print might look like, look no further than supermodel Chanel Iman‘s dress!

Or here! Check out the chaos in Leslie Mann‘s splatter painted printed dress. Very 80s!

 Leather is also very punk as proven here by supermodel Doutzen Kroes.

Models tend to have the upper edge at the MET Ball compared to actresses and musicians and tend to do better at this event. Xase in point: Miranda Kerr.

But then again this year’s theme catered to musicians like Paloma Faith.

Sometimes simpler is better as seen here by Carey Mulligan in a very minimalistic dress. The safety pin is quite the symbol of punk fashion!

Another great minimal gown on Cameron Diaz, which has quite the awesome spiked belt.

Great dress, but even better makeup! Great job, Ginnifer Goodwin!

Like mother like daughter, Ginnifer’s TV daughter Jennifer Morrison has a lovely dress but even cooler hair! A faux mohawk gives her a punk edge.

They’re not studded spikes but the gem beading on Minka Kelly‘s dress make it work somehow, plus this was a refreshing colour to see!

Speaking of refreshing colours, Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald, stood out in her green skirt and green-streaked hair! Streaked hair was a popular trend at this event.

Kirsten Dunst‘s dress was dark and moody without being black or grey, I approve!

Diane Kruger‘s dress was gothic and moody but the electro pink dipped hair kept it fun and punk!

It’s not just celebrities and models who get to be in the spotlight, the designers get to work the red carpet too. Here is Donatella Versace proving designers can bring it too!

Probably the most talked about look of the night, Miley Cyrus may not have been alive during the 80s punk era but she knows how to channel her inner rock star (and I’m not talking about Hannah Montana!). This look was the most divisive as either you loved it or hated it. I think given the punk theme of this year’s gala, it totally worked. In any other circumstance this would be torn to shreds! I think most people are probably put off by her spiky hair, but the gown is pretty ballin’ regardless of the hair and styling.

Tell us which was your fav look! And don’t forget to check back for Part 2: The Blahs and the Oh No’s!
