The Met Ball 2013

BATD ON May 07, 2013 AT 11:49 am

All of Hollywood’s biggest stars and fashion’s biggest names flocked to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City last night. The Met Ball saw its guests embrace this year’s theme, “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne turned heads in studded Burberry ensembles, whilst Nicole Richie and Madonna seemed to turn heads but for all the wrong reasons – Madonna may have taken the theme a little too literally and Nicole’s head of freshly dyed white-grey hair offset by a perma-tan left us open-mouthed. From the fabulous and fashionable to just downright weird, the Met saw it all. .

Sienna Miller looked stunning in head-to-toe Burberry, fuelling the rumors even more that she may be the face of their autumn campaign with fiance Tom Sturridge. And that jacket…simply amazing!

Cara Delevingne also rocked head-to-toe low cut Burberry, paying tribute to the punk theme as only Cara can with a bodice covered in studs, a bold smoky eye and a tight-to-the-head braid that appeared as an undercut.

Nicole Richie wore a beautiful custom made Top Shop column dress, although it was difficult to notice the dress thanks to her beauty choices.

Madonna opted for a belted plaid blazer from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, which would have been fabulous were it not for the rest of her over-accessorized ensemble. And once again, we have to say it, please Madge, we love you but keep your underwear under wraps.


Kristen Stewart rocked a silky dark maroon jumpsuit from Stella McCartney paired with matching Chanel make up.

Like Nicole Richie, Anne Hathaway chose the Met Ball to debut a new head of hair, but we’re loving Anne’s platinum locks and her sheer vintage dress by Valentino, a world away from the yawn-some and unflattering red-carpet choices she has made of late.

The goddess that is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore  gold and fishnet Gucci and looked absolutely amazing, like always.

Rooney Mara embraced the punk theme flawlessly by pairing her gorgeous Givenchy Couture by Ricardo Tisci gown with slicked back hair and a dark lip.

Sarah Jessica Parker looked regal in Giles Deacon paired with an oversized gold plated Philip Treacy mohican headpiece. Her plaid Louis Vuitton thigh-high boots pulled together the outfit and gave it the punk rock edge we had hoped for.

Katie Holmes may have looked gorgeous in white Calvin Klein Collection but sadly, apart from a high quiff, she wasn’t very punk.

A very pregnant Kim Kardashian wore Givenchy by Ricardo Tisco with matching floral gloves and heels to mixed reviews. What we will say is that we love, love, lover her lip colour and the fact that she hasn’t played it safe in monochrome maternity-wear. That Kardashian is one fierce lady.

Taylor Swift wore a J. Mendel lace cut-out dress, rocking both punk and couture to perfection.


Katy Perry looked playful as ever in a Dolce & Gabbana dress, regal golden crown and single drop-cross earring.

Miley Cyrus wore Marc Jacobs, but really, who noticed the dress below a head of punk-spiked hair like that?

Model Coco Rocha embodied the theme flawlessly in an Emanuel Ungaro by Fausto Puglisi leopard gown. The black booties and edgy bob cut pulled together her fashionably punk ensemble.

Gwenyth Paltrow looked gorgeous but quite opposite of punk in her neon pink Valentino gown. Did she not get the memo?

Carey Mulligan also played it safe in a conservative black Balenciaga dress and Tiffany’s & Co. jewellery.

After those tour outfits, Beyonce’s Givenchy Couture by Ricardo Tisci pieces was disappointing. The belt, the black gloves and the thigh high boots, just too much.


Emma Watson looked classy and put-together like always in a black cut-out Prabal Gurung gown.

Ever the Dior ambassador, Jennifer Lawrence looked conservative and gorgeous in a strapless Dior gown, red lips and face-covering veil.


Brazilian beauty, Gisele Bundchen flaunted her post baby body in an Anthony Vaccarello mini-dress, although again, we expected so much more.

Actress Amanda Seyfried sported a Givenchy Couture by Ricardo Tisci printed gown which we loved, erring on the ‘careful’ side of punk, we still love her.
