As much as we may detest the constant media attention that focuses around award shows, you know that deep down inside you are HANKERING to see what your favorite singer/actor/reality tv star/famous nobody wears whilst waltzing down the red carpet, posing for photographers and giving interviews.
I myself am a junkie for this shit, and the highly anticipated Met Gala 2013 was an event that I couldn't help but to stream while I was at my 'regular joe' job.
The Met Gala, or as people not commonly refer to as the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Benefit Gala, is an annual event that celebrates the opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute in New York City. This year the exhibit is "Punk: From Chaos to Couture" and as what is usually expected from this extravaganza, the invitees are encouraged to dress accordingly to the theme.
And I don't know about you guys but although many looked really GORGEOUS [hello Hailee, Amanda, and Solange], there wasn't really a whole lotta PUNK going on! It seems that glam with punk wasn't an easy balance to achieve, but there were a few who really stood out to me:
|Anne Hathaway in Valentino|
|Constance Jablonski & Wes Gordon in Wes Gordon|
|Madonna & Riccardo Tisci in Givenchy|
|Christina Ricci in Vivienne Westwood|
|Nicole Richie in Topshop|
|Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello|
|Coco Rocha in Fausto Puglisi for Emanuel Ungaro|
Coco is always known to have a quirky outfit for the Gala [last year she showed up in a shocking yellow pantsuit previous owned by Liz Taylor], and this was no exception. HOWEVER I really freaking like this! It looks comfortable despite metal protrusions, and that blunt bang with dark make-up is a nice touch.
PS- I also love how active she is on social media platforms. She posted this Vine as a sneak peek of her dress and I got SO excited.
|Rooney Mara in Givenchy|
AND NOW here are my two favorite looks from this shindig
|Sienna Miller in Burberry Prorsum|
|Linda Fargo in Hiro Hosomizu|
So? What do you think? Do you agree with my choices or not? Anyone I'm missing [and PLEASE do not say Kim Kardashian]? Let me know!
Baby I was born to lose...
