Review for the Met Gala Punk Theme - Chaos to Couture

The Met Gala 2013 hosted their yearly fashion event themed "Punk - Chaos to Couture" and the stars  delivered. These are some of the looks from last night's red carpet event...

Anne Hathaway wearing Vintage Valentino... The dress is fabulous however there wasn't enough punk details to it. Her hair and make-up is what gave this look that punk rocker look.

Madonna being Madonna wearing a studded plaid tartan jacket which is Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci  paired with ripped fish net stockings and no pants... this is so Madonna. Though this look is very punk there is no Couture happening here. The black wig the neon pink shoes takes me back to the 80s... I'm a huge fan of hers but I think she could've done better. However as I was looking through her photos I couldn't help but noticed it seemed she was having a great time which leaves me to assume that Madonna just doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. Rock on Madge!

Nicki Minaj has cleaned up quite nicely as of lately. Here she is wearing a plain navy blue Tommy Hilfiger dress with cut out at the midriffs. She has toned down her look a lot since of lately but I'm worried she might be loosing her creative side. The only thing about this look that says punk is the hair and make up and the hair might still be in deliberation because it is more of an 80s glam rock band hair look... however she still looks stunning. 


Miley Cyrus is getting older and screaming it... dressed in a Marc Jacobs long sleeved netted gown this Morticia Addams inspired look (from the Addams Family) was perfectly punked. The spikey rocker hair and makeup was the cherry on top. This was one of my favorite looks of the night.
Mara Rooney walked the red carpet in Givenchy this ruffled front center split dress is just gorge. I think it would've came off as more punk if it was black but none the less the goth make-up made up for that with her hair pulled back. Also this is the actress that starred in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so naturally whenever you see her no matter what she is wearing you associate her with that character. She pulled this dress off very well.

Nicole Ritchie all I can say is OMG! she took it next level... She's my best dressed pick of the night. You can tell a lot of thought went into this outfit. Even though the dress is white her hair & make up sets the tone for the punk theme and the little details of her accessories such as the spike earrings  gives the look some edge. Her beautifully tanned skin is glowing in this custom made Top Shop gown.

Beyoncé in Givenchy looking flawless however this looks more like royalty than punk. She looks beautiful so is the dress... her hair and make up on point however again there is no signs of punk really in this outfit to me.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West... Ok I like Kim but this is very far fetched from the punk theme however I will say she looks "ok" in this Riccardo Tisci dress. I mean she is preggers so it must be very hard for her to fit into anything right now... she gets a pass from me. I've seen a lot of other reviews where people are saying she looks like a couch because of the floral but floral is a huge trend right now so I just think this dress was not right for the occasion but she looks "ok" holding on tight to her man Kanye West who is also fabulously dressed in Riccardo Tisci.


  1. Love following ur blogs nikki.. keep them com xoxo cg

  2. I do not like Kim's outfit being preggo she kind of looks like a couch in all of that floral fabric. But I loved Miley's look!!!

    Following you ;)


    1. Hi Nicole,
      I found your blog through the Lucky Contributor's page and enjoyed reading your recap of the Met Gala. I don't think I'd give Kim a pass, because I think she just was out of her element by not understanding the dress code and theme very well, but I completely agree that Nicole was a total stunner for the night!



  3. Boo on Kim. You can't be punk in floral!

  4. According to Kim it was the designers vision of what punk should be for her.
