Red Carpet Review: Complete Coverage Of The 2013 Met Costume Institute Gala, Featuring Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Richie, Miley Cyrus, & More!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This year’s Met Costume Institute Gala‘s theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture,” which means that we expected to see a lot of black, leather, cut-outs, sheer panels, & edge on the red carpet, but I don’t think fashion critics quite expected so much interpretation of the rock & roll vibe. This included some amazing looks worn by a platinum Anne Hathaway (in vintage Valentino), gothic Ashley Greene (in Marchesa), plaid-happy Christina Ricci (in Vivienne Westwood), spiked Miley Cyrus (in Marc Jacobs), a pretty Jennifer Lawrence (in Dior Haute Couture), Kylie Minogue‘s colorblocked look (in Moschino), as well as headlining statements of style from a silver-haired Nicole Richie (in Topshop), an under-stated Nicki Minaj (in Tommy Hilfiger), Beyoncé‘s show-stopping ensemble (in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci), Sarah Jessica Parker‘s powerhouse pieces (by Giles & Philip Treacy), & Nina Dobrev‘s brave one-piece (in Monique Lhuillier).

Enjoy the nearly never-ending slideshow, which also includes a bottomless Madonna (in Givenchy), elegant Jessica Alba (in Tory Burch), awkward babydoll look from Lena Dunham (in Erdem), funky & fringed Kelly Osbourne (in Marc Jacobs), sophisticated Claire Danes (in Oscar de la Renta), dramatic Kerry Washington (in Vera Wang), uber-sexy Jennifer Lopez (in Michael Kors), coy Katy Perry (in Dolce & Gabbana), & sultry Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in Gucci). Which looks were your favorites? Who do you think played it too safe? Which designers do you look for on the red carpet? Happy Styling!
