Here is a collection of my favourite looks from the night, in no particular order, please understand that I based my decisions upon the fact that the theme was 'PUNK'! Had there been no theme I would have a lot more here, but I'm giving credit to those who really considered the theme when choosing a look.
Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello - This is simple but still gives a nod to the theme. The red colour, the leather material, the upturned collar, the hair... Gisele Bundchen wore a very similar dress in black, but Anja just about won it for me.
Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino - Now this, I like. The first thing I noticed about Anne when I was streaming was her bleach blonde hair (which I think really suits her, by the way), and then the boobs. I've read a couple of times that she should stop 'trying to be sexy', but you know what? No, she shouldn't! Every woman deserves to feel sexy, and I wasn't sure how Anne would interpret the trend seeing as 'punk' is a far cry from what she usually wears, but I thought she did it amazingly. Phuck da h8erz!
Cara Delevingne in Burberry - Daaaaaaaamn Cara! The low cut neckline, the studs, the abundance of jewellery, the smoky make-up, and the hair! Just everything is right, like spot on. This is how to do modern day punk, ladies, take note.
Christina Ricci in Vivienne Westwood - Tartan, fishnets and wearing Vivienne Westwood, that's punk enough, right? I'm usually indifferent when it comes to Christina's red carpet fashion choices, but I think she pulled this look off perfectly.
Hilary Rhoda - Now, I really wasn't sure about including this one, and I left it literally until the last minute to decide to, meaning even now I'm now not sure if she should be in here at all... But hey, it's a more glamourous and feminine take on punk, I guess...?
Madonna in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci - I'd be the first one to say that Madonna doesn't do too well when it comes to, er, getting dressed, and I'm pretty sure she's going through a mid-life crisis, however! I thought her choice of outfit was bloody great considering the theme, which I know will be an unpopular opinion, but it's one night of these celebrities' lives, life's too short to put on a pretty dress for a punk night and justify it with black nail varnish, NO!
So to Madonna I say: You go Glen Coco!
Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs - I've seen a lot of people indirectly ask Miley 'what the hell was you thinking?!', however I knew she'd impress me in her choice of outfit seeing as her everyday outfits are usually pretty grungy. She opted for a simple but very apt fishnet dress, which immediately took me back to the 90s. And for the hairstyle haters: I'll say it again, the theme was PUNK. Chill your beans! She was clearly having a bit of fun, and good for her for doing it too!
Rooney Mara in Givenchy - Ok, ok, I'll admit Rooney probably shouldn't be in here, seeing as she's wearing white lace... But the dress is so beautiful, especially with that dark lipstick, and I'm not gonna lie, I saw the fact that Rooney plays the very dark (which is almost punky, right?) Lisbeth Salander as a good enough reason to include her... Sorry!
Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles and a Philip Treacy fauxhawk - DAAAAAAAAMN SJP, I salute you. I never imagined she'd look as amazing as she did. Without a doubt, my favourite look of the night. The print, the boots, AND THE BLOODY MOHAWK. What a way to embrace the theme. Bloody amazing.
So there are my favourites, is there any which you agree/disagree with? Or someone you think I should have included? Do let me know your thoughts on the outfits! I think if I attended the Met Gala this year (totally possible) I would have chosen a long, simple black dress with a low cut neckline, and then chucked on a heavily studded leather jacket, crazy hair and lots of piercings, and OF COURSE my Converse.
I've got to say, I thought it was a shame no one wore the Balmain safety pin dress from his S/S 2011 collection, talk about missed opportunity!
