Met Ball 2013, Punk: Chaos To Couture

I haven't been around lately, I know. Hi, though! *waves* :D

Recently, designers, actors, models and other fashion fiends attend the annual gathering known as the Met  Ball. The theme this year was "Punk: Chaos to Couture". In my honest opinion, it was more of chaos than "Couture". How did Anna Wintour not wear her sunglasses to the event? Some Majority of them need classes on how to dress according to a theme. 
Very few actually made the effort and embraced the theme this year. Punk has been one of the toughest themes.

Miley cyrus did a good job. She stuck to the theme.

 Kim Kardashian's outfit was a disaster. It was so bad that she was Kropped out of Vogue's Met Gala slideshow. She wore a floral maternity gown with gleeves designed by Riccardo Tisci who himself defended her oh so sweetly. Dear Riccardo, Punk is defined as either "being rebellious" or "an inexperienced young man" so what exactly were you trying to do by designing a FLORAL maternity gown for her?! "I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment".. you sure did.. but you made her look like a house. I am not even going to apologize. 

This is what Tom and Lorenzo had to say -

"Look, there’s been a lot of virtual ink and tears spilled over criticism regarding her maternity wear choices, but we have to be honest here. There’s no way for us to argue that this looks anything but awful on her. We’re one hundred percent behind the idea of pregnant women showing off their pregnancy and indulging in high fashion, but we firmly believe that certain looks should be considered off the table by any of her gays, stylists, or other dressing room co-pilots. People need to be steering her away from mermaid skirts and pencil skirts, as well as skin-tight over-busy gowns like this, which make her look like she can’t breath and have us assuming that little Kanye Kardashian Jr. is banging on the walls from the inside and screaming about how he wants a bigger room.
Don’t even get us started on the one who couldn’t bother wearing an undershirt, tie, belt or properly hemmed pair of pants." (Via

Alexa Chung... Goth or Punk?

Beyonce looked like a queen, as usual. But the THEME, Bay, the theme. Didn't expect this from her but expectation reduces joy so whatever.

Rooney Mara reminded me of Dragon Ball Z (the japanese cartoon) for some odd reason. Jokes aside, she went for white when majority of them went for black... *slow claps x 4*

Anne Hathaway looked perfect. Her look was edgy and glam and way way waaaaaaay better than Miley Cyrus' look.

Sarah Jessica Parker looked adorable. Many may not agree with me on this but Punk was one of the toughest themes and she really pulled it off in a beautiful way!

Nina Dobrev wore Monique Lhuillier. Chanel and Dior introduced this dress-over-pants style a few seasons ago and Nina Dobrev pulled her outfit off so beautifully!

Is this a Halloween costume? Or is she going on a mission? 'Cause she was dressed to kill. *pours acid in my eyes*

I think I'm gonna go. 



  1. Fantastic my dear .... agree with you mostly except for SJP :)

  2. Loved Anne, Nina and Beyonce! Miley just looked like she is trying too hard to come of age.

  3. miley,anne,nina were my favs...

  4. love the first!! inspiring :)

  5. i loved anne hathaways look most. she definitely killed it at the MET ball. cant say that for many of the others. especially as they were totally not in keeping with the theme most of the time.

  6. I don't understand what did happen to Madonna.. Why? Beyonce is simply gorgeous as always in this long gown dress.
