Punk: Chaos to Couture is the theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition. The Met Gala, the opening of the exhibit and one of the most cherished fashion invitations, was last night. The trend was all about DIY and vintage but as one knows, Punk did influence fashion. People who wore punk-styled clothing were usually thought of as being rebellious and trying to make a political statement. Punk broke the rules and had no boundaries. It also was not only about what people wore; hairstyles and make up played a big role. Punk was not about couture gowns, so what were people going to wear? Let’s take a look at how creative people were.
Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy.
Taylor Swift wearing J. Mendel.
Miley Cyrus wearing Marc Jacobs.Lily Collins wearing Moschino. Anne Hathaway wearing vintage Valentino. Madonna wearing Givenchy. Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Giles Deacon. The mohawk headdress is by Philip Treacy. (Not shown thigh high plaid boots by Christian Louboutin.)Stacy Kleiber wearing Rachel Roy.Sienna Miller wearing Burberry.
Diane Krueger wearing Chanel. This is certainly one of my favorites. She has all elements correct: hair, makeup and dress.
Vivian Westwood was one of the original crusaders for punk fashion. Instead of wearing jewerly she made a political statement by pinning a photo Bradley Manning on her dress.
January Jones wearing Chanel. Although her dress was very classic, her hair and makeup was quite festive.Kate Bosworth looking amazing in Balmain. She also wore this designer last year. This is one of my favorites.
Anna Wintour wearing Chanel.
Last year it was refreshing to see people not wearing couture gowns. This year I did not see any dresses from H&M but all the following are from Topshop.
As as always I found it interesting to see what people wore and how they interpeted the theme. I am looking forward to seeing the exhibit. Who do you think rocked the punk theme best?
