Fashion Recap: Celebs Attend the 2013 Met Gala

5/07/2013 Whitney Watt 0 Comments

All the most fashionable stars were in NYC last night to make a statement on the red carpet at the 2013 Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A few weeks ago while I was in NYC, I actually got a chance to visit the famous museum on 5th Avenue. For the Met Gala, they cover the steps with red carpet which makes a great backdrop for photos of the fab gowns with dramatic trains. The night's theme was PUNK: Chaos to Couture, so many of the looks took inspiration from it.

Let's recap some of the standout looks from the night:

Beyonce brought the drama in a punk inspired Tisci gown with matching thigh-high boots, grommet belt and elbow-length gloves.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made a splash on the red carpet, with Kim in a floral gown designed by Riccardo Tisci.

Jennifer Lopez didn't exactly go with the punk theme, but she looked fabulous anyway in an animal print gown.

Anne Hathaway wore a daring sheer black gown and new blonde hair.

Eve looked amazing in a black lace and leather gown.

I saw a lot of cutouts on the red carpet:

Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys played peek-a-boo with their abs.

Solange, Rita Ora and Jessica Alba also played with cutouts.

Some embraced the Punk: Chaos to Couture theme more than others:

Madonna definitely had people talking with this get-up.

Miley Cyrus wore a mesh gown and spiked hair for a true punk & couture mix-up.

Katy Perry's embellished dress with crown was fit for a punk queen.

Taylor Swift showed a darker side in this dark J. Mendel gown.

Christina Ricci brought the punk in a plaid gown.

Miss Sarah Jessica Parker wore a dramatic headpiece with her gown.

Those are just a few highlights, but who were your favorite looks from the night?
