Welcome, dear readers, to my favorite red carpet event of the year! This year’s Met Gala theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture. Let’s mock the starlets who were too chicken to go all-out and praise those who brought out their “punk” side. (Or as “punk” as a bunch of actresses and models can get at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.)
Whether you think of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala as the Fashion Industry’s Prom Night (if your idea of prom includes Marc Jacobs wearing a sheer lace dress over boxer shorts) or the Oscars of the East Coast (but the only award you can win is Anna Wintour’s approval of your outfit, and that’s just impossible) or the Gay Superbowl (the attendees included Tom Brady, Tim Tebow, and many gay men, so this might actually be the most accurate description), it’s time to see the most famous names and faces in the industry rocking their fanciest duds for the occasion.
