Monday night marked the annual “Met Ball,” honoring the opening of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition entitled Punk: From Chaos to Couture.
Much speculation lead up to the event, as to how the theme would be handled by the revelers, hand selected by Vogue’s high priestess herself, Anna Wintour.
Well, today we have the answer, and in most cases, it was handled poorly.
While a few went all out, (Madonna you go girl!) many opted for odd choices that left them looking awkward and uncomfortable. Below are some of our favorites, who embraced the movement and looked pretty in punk:
Madonna at the Met
Miley just being Miley
Sarah Jessica Parker channeling Carrie Bradshaw in Giles
Kim Kardashian in a custom slipcover by Riccardo Tischi
Beyonce in Givenchy
And after couture came utter chaos. What made these attractive young women embrace old age, instead of punk?
Nicole Richie goes grey
Kate Upton goes matronly
Nicki Minaj left us speechless
Anna Wintour in Chanel
The grande dame of the evening may have inadvertently been the most punk of all. While others tried to conform to societal expectations, Ms.Wintour bucked the norm, and showed up in a demure floral Chanel gown. What looked the least in keeping with the theme,may just have out- punked everyone.
