“Punk: Chaos to Couture” in New York’s Metropolitan Museum

“Punk: Chaos to Couture” in New York’s Metropolitan Museum

The annual Met Costume Institute Gala absolutely never disappoints. Compared to most red carpet events, the gala outfits and costumes are avant-garde and artistic, as the guests are normally top designers, their muses, models and artists. Furthermore, this year’s exhibition was inspired by the punk influences in fashion from the 1970s NY and London to contemporary works, promising an extravagant night. Some decided to respect the theme, some not so much, but at the end, the show was spectacular. Check our edit of the best dressed of the night.

Anja Rubik Kate Bosworth

Left: Anja Rubik wearing Anthony Vaccarello of course. For a second year in a row, Anthony and Anja are the center of attention. Anja should be the Met Gala queen.
Right: Kate Bosworth in Balmain,because Balmain is essentially what punk would wear, if it was into couture. Plus, it’s pink!

Sienna Miller Cara Delevingne

Left: Sienna Miller; Right Cara Delevingne; both wearing studs and Burberry with a very successful reference to the London Punk scene. Very edgy!

Rooney Mara Nicole Richie

Left: Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy; Right Nicole Richie wearing Topshop Couture. Both show-stopping looks. Very evocative, very expressive, yet really elegant. Not exactly punk, but quite close to the spirit of the movement.
