Heidi Klum in Marchesa Fall 2013--Heidi Klum went eighteenth-century romanticism Glam Goddess for last night's 2013 Met Gala red carpet as opposed to taking the "punk" route. Good choice I say! She wore a silvery-white gown form Marchesa Fall 2013 collection with a sculptured and opulent strapless bustier and wrap-around draped floor-length skirt with train.
Coco Rocha in Ungaro Fall 2013--Nicely done Coco. Love the animal print (GRRRR!) and the oversized metallic gold details. She looks like a Cheetah who got caught in a jungle of gold leaves! As you can see from the photo, the original runway sample was a short sexy dress. For Coco, it was lengthened into a floor-length gown.
Joan Smalls in Tom Ford Fall 2013 (with Tom Ford)--Supermodel Joan Smalls wore Tom Ford as she attended the 2013 Met Gala with Tom Ford (naturally!). It was a black lace long-sleeved gown that looked spectacular on Miss Joan. Tom didn't look so bad himself. As always: impeccable in a double-breasted notched collar satin lapel suit from...Tom Ford.
Liu Wen in Alexander McQueen--Model Liu Wen looked fabulous in a black lace, chiffon and sequined embroidered gown with gold neckline detail from Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton.
Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013--Anja wore a red version of Belgian designer's black leather number form his fall 2013 collection. Anja looks very "Robert Palmer Girl"-Metes-North Beach Leather Catalog in this look and therefore: I LOVE it! It fits the "PUNK Couture" element, at least for me.
Karolina Kurkova in Mary Katrantzou--Karolina wore this one shoulder printed design from Greek fashion design Mary Katrantzou. Katrantzou lives in London and shows at London Fashion Week and is known for her bright. bold prints. This dress screams early 1990's Versace for me. Not a bad thing. I'm just putting that out there. PS: those smoky eyes of Karolina's should get a makeup award. Like tomorrow.
Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs Fall 2013--20 year-old Miley wore a floor-length version of a short nude and black sequined dress from Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 collection. I like this tank dress; it's simple, not earth-shattering design-wise and it's all about the luxe fabric. The spiky hair on Miley is a bit contrived, I think. More importantly, what do YOU guys think?
Madonna in Givenchy--Only Madonna can pull this off (maybe Deborah Harry of Blondie could too!). Madonna went closer to the theme of the exhibition with this black, gray and white plaid jacket with gold studs, accessorized with black leather gloves, fishnets and bubblegum pink pumps...and a jet black long bob with bangs. Very Pin-Up Chick-Meets-Punk Club Door Girl.
Jennifer Lopez in Michael Kors (with Michael Kors)--I can't. Seriously. I just can't. How FLAWLESS does J. Lo look? Don't answer that because I will: She does! Her Momma--and all the Gays around her--done taught her right!
Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 (with designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana)--Katy Perry wore a heavily sequined dress with religious icon detail from Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2013 collection. She "topped" it all off with a crown--also from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 collection. Whether or not this had anything to do with PUNK or CHAOS or COUTURE is not even the point, she looked great in my eyes.
Kylie Minogue in Moschino with Rossella Jardini Creative Director of Moschino--Miss Kylie wore a strapless black and white gown from the Italian fashion house of Moschino. Kylie looks elegant and very 80's event appropriate but I think Moschino's Creative Director looks more "CHAOS COUTURE" fabulous. Sorry.
Gwen Stefani Maison Martin Margiela--Gwen knows Punk-ish...at least the Orange County version. She's been doing this stuff for years. This outfit choice must have been a walk-in-the-park for her. I love her expression here, she's like "Yeah WHAT!?".
Taylor Swift in J. Mendel by Gilles Mendel--Taylor Swift looks almost unrecognizable here. I like this look on her, including this black and gold lace embroidered gown from Gilles Mendel's brand J. Mendel. What do you guys think? Is this a Hit or Punk "Chaos Couture" Miss?
Speaking of Misses....Solange Knowles in Kenzo and Nicki Minaj in Tommy Hilfiger--Afro Not-So-Fab and Roots Miss Nicki. I don't even know what to say (and I'm not usually at a loss for words). Therefore, please leave your comments after the post. PLEASE!
Ashley Olsen in vintage Dior--Carole Cook called and she wants her caftan. ASAP. Why do I feel as if I want to be in Palm Springs drinking Dirty Martinis in a Mid Century home with a bunch of older gays? Was that her inspiration?
Donatella Versace--I mean...WOW! Again, I just can't. Your turn, readers...
Zandra Rhodes--Two words: LOVE HER. Period.
Model Lily Cole, in Vivienne Westwood, with the designer Vivienne Westwood and Westwood's husband and co-designer, former Austrian footballer Andreas Kronthaler--Subversive, plastic, silk taffeta, punk, chaos and couture...yep, it's all there!
Kim Kardashian in custom Givenchy--Kim wore a flower printed gown with a high side slit, long sleeves (covered up with gloves). She accessorized it with matching shoes. A lot of people (on the web) are saying she looked like a couch. I get the whole pink flowers "pink" suggestion (the color PINK is the color of PUNK in case you weren't aware), but yes, it's a LOT of dress. I know she's UBER pregnant but still, this might not have been her best choice. This, I think, is a case where maybe she should not have listened to the designer and said "Um, No thanks!". But, on the other hand, NO ONE is talking about any other dress except hers. So, I give Kim "At-a-GURL" Nick Points for going there! You go Miss Kim!
