The Met Costume Institute Gala is one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. Every year a theme guides celebrities into an avant-garde style. This year attendees paid homage to “Punk From Chaos to Couture.”
What I love about this particular event is that it pushes fashion into fresh thoughts and crazy creations that will make you raise an eyebrow. The event usually delivers some maven who is brave enough to let loose and go full fashion forward.
Sarah Jessica Parker knocked it out of the fashion playground. She rocked a mohawk courtesy of a headpiece that was created by Philip Treacy. Her gown was voluminous print by Giles Deacon that had a hint of Honey Boo Boo’s mother’s bridal gown. To amp up the punk flavor, she also finished the look with custom-made Louboutin velvet plaid shoes.
Anne Hathaway’s blonde hair stole her look. Her platinum blonde locks turned heads instead of her Valentino gown from 1991. I applaud her bravery and effort, but I am not a fan of the dye job. It’s somewhere between Playboy Bunny and Eminem circa 1999.
Kristen Stewart was also there looking like an angry imp that escaped from my great grandmother’s creepy doll collection. I get that she is angst-y and doesn’t like to smile because everything, including shampoo, is a big inconvenience, but I couldn’t find a picture of her smiling to share with you.
Madonna was an excellent example of trying too hard. She looked like the mom of one of those Bratz dolls. Michael K from Dlisted summed it up perfectly – “This look is very “current day Anjelica Huston as a Hot Topic stripper.”
