A few stars and starlets were brave enough to go punk for the The Met’s gala in celebration of “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” There may have been more couture than chaos on the red carpet, but Sarah Jessica-Parker and Madonna stole the show with their rebellious attire. Faux hawks, leather, safety pins, spikes and studs were resurrected in this punk revival; however, there were many A-list celebrities who ignored the theme altogether.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore a Mohawk headpiece as her crown with thigh-high Christian Louboutin boots. She rocked a Giles Deacon dress.
Madonna made a grand last entrance in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci.
Miley Cyrus ditched her Hannah Montana alter ego for good. She turned up in Marc Jacobs fishnet dress, with spiky blonde hair.

‘I’m feeling so good and so punk!’ said 20-year-old Cyrus. ‘There are so many ways how you can interpret punk, and I think I had it easy tonight because the dress is just so punk itself – and my hair, so I didn’t really have to go crazy.’
Sienna Miller wore a Burberry biker jacket with studs.
Taylor Swift wore J Mendel covered with hardware.
Lauren Santo Domingo added rebel to her Dolce and Gabbana dress with a spiked choker necklace.
Punk style is back on the agenda. It was seen all over the Autumn/Winter 2013 catwalks and it’s likely it’l be one of next season’s biggest trends. It’s a tough look to interpret, but here are some ideas.
“Punk: Chaos to Couture” continues through Aug. 14 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The exhibit features approximately 100 designs for men and women. It includes original punk garments from the mid-1970s and designer pieces that were subsequently influenced by the movement.
