2013 Met Gala:  "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" Costume Institute Exhibition Press Preview at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nastyis upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s themePunk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year. Expect one or two unforgettable looks, lots of playing it safe, some real style, some real glamour and, hopefully, a whole lot of beautiful disasters.

So, per usual, we’ll be updating live throughout the red carpet. Come back and refresh often–expect new looks here every few minutes!

Let’s do this.

Actress Jennifer Morrison attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Jennifer Morrison, first on the red carpet. She’s wearing Donna Karan. Although we appreciate the raw-ish looking neckline and the oil blotch print, we think this is about as “punk” as most attendees will get tonight. Thankfully, we really like black!

Bee Shaffer attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Not only does Anna Wintour‘s daughter Bee Shaffer look really pretty, the Sex Pistols were huge fans of subtle ombré and delicate appliqués.

…All right, we’re going to retire all “[first wave punk band] would have loved [oblivious rich person stuff]” before that joke starts sounding too bitter. Speaking of which…

Lauren Santo Domingo attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Lauren Santo Domingo wears the evening’s first spiked collar.

And you know what? A for effort.

Rooney Mara attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Rooney Mara‘s nod to punk was “zippers” on her lacy white Givenchy. The gown has an interesting Dynasty vibe, but it’s also doily-like.

Nora Zehetner attends the 2013 Met GalaSo, it already seems the theme of the night is not so much “punk” as it is “ignore the theme.” Here’s Nora Zehetner in a sari and Heidi braids.

Conde Nast Artistic Director Anna Wintour attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Anna Wintour’s dress is lovely and extremely Anna Wintour. Why did they even bother having a theme?

Model Anja Rubik attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Look! Someone tried! Unfortunately for Anja Rubik, the theme was not Thriller-inspired erotic role play. :(

 Dylan Lauren attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Dylan Lauren gave zero shits about the theme. She also got a thorough fake tan, to let everyone know where she stands on this whole “punk rock music” thing.

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute Gala

We know as much about sports as every attendee at the 2013 Met Gala knows about punk, but we hear this Amar’e Stoudemire fellow plays some sort of ball game with the Knickerbockers of New York City.

We like his lady friend Alexis Stoudmire‘s feathery thing because the tiniest amount of effort is going to go a long way with us tonight.

 Actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Game of ThronesNikolaj Coster Waldau. Blue suit. Everybody good?

Not sure where Sandra Lee was going with this.

Emmy Rossum attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Emmy Rossum dressed exactly how she always does, but piled her hair in some braids and shit on her head.

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute Gala Hailee Steinfeld wore Donna Karan, looked cute like always, and let her eye makeup subtly echo the theme. Fair enough.

Nina Dobrev attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

We thought Nina Dobrev was JWOWW, so that’s where we’re at.

Chloe Sevigny attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Chloe Sevigny‘s accessories were awesome, especially her shoes. Her bare makeup is also up our alley.

Actress Katie Holmes attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Katie Holmes, we think, nodded to the theme with a towering bouffant. Sure.

 La La Anthony attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

La La Anthony looks… really different?

  Lauren Bush Lauren attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

So, sheer is maybe big tonight? Lauren Bush Lauren.

Aubrey Plaza attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We have so much good will toward Aubrey Plaza that we’re gonna say we’re okay with this.

Bella Heathcote attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Bella Heathcote did some crazy eye makeup! And while we’re unsure why everyone took “punk” to mean “florals,” we think her crazy eyeliner looks good.

Carolyn Murphy attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We appreciate that the models were more daring than the everybody else. But “sheer panels on a tea length dress” aren’t anymore punk than the rest of what we’ve seen. Carolyn Murphy always looks beautiful, beyond that.

Greta Gerwig attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Greta Gerwig is the first on the red carpet with a verging-on-authentic punk hair/makeup look. Go Greta!

Heidi Klum attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Heidi Klum didn’t even bother to find out the theme.

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute GalaJamie King looks nice, right? We’re not sure the garland makes sense, but all that lace is pretty and it’s nice seeing menswear-inspired stuff at the Met Gala.

Kate Mara attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Kate Mara‘s dress is so odd!

But we are not against odd this evening. We are highly in favor of anything remotely odd tonight.

 Kirsten Dunst attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. This dress is half in favor of existing, half really unsure what it wants in life. Kirsten Dunst looks appropriately confused.

 Solange Knowles attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Solange Knowles in Kenzo.

Ashley Olsen attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Ashley Olsen wore… a caftan? Awesome color on her, though.

 Coco Rocha attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Look at that! Coco Rocha took the theme seriously and won–sure, in any other context, this look would be pure Crazy Town. But at the Costume Institute Gala’s clueless honoring of punk, we’d say Coco just made the best dressed list.

Dakota Fanning attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Dakota Fanning. Eh.

Elle Fanning attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We were wondering how this Rodarte collection would turn up on the red carpet. We’re strangely into it and–like we keep saying–points for doing something a little weird with the beauty.

Emilia Clarke attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Emilia Clarke nailed it: look like her super hot self, add some subtle element that nods to the theme, wind up looking like you paid attention without embarrassing yourself. That’s the goal tonight, folks.

Emma Roberts attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Emma Roberts wore a really boring look to the Met Gala.

Giovanna Battaglia attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Giovanna Battaglia can always be counted on to wear something eyecatching. The hair is awesome.

Kerry Washington attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.We hate peplums almost as much as we like Kerry Washington. In the end, she comes out ahead.

Miley Cyrus attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.This is going to be a night of occasional surprises and here’s the first big one: Miley Cyrus 1) did right by the theme while 2) looking high fashion enough for the Met Gala… while 3) looking like herself. Good job, Cyrus.

Minka Kelly attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Minka Kelly‘s makeup looks awesome but we aren’t crazy about the stiff, heavy dress/texture.

Taylor Swift attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.As if this whole shitshow weren’t already the polar opposite of punk, here’s Taylor Swift.

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute GalaAnd, for that matter, Gwyneth Paltrow.

Christina Ricci attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Here’s another example of someone who took the premise seriously and put in effort and came out on top. Christina Ricci looks great and on-theme.

 Jessica Alba attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Jessica Alba disappeared her eyebrows, which is reasonably punk rock.

Anne Hathaway attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Anne Hathaway sure picked the right time to debut her blonde pixie. It’s a little crazy and we thought she was Sigrid Agren but she looks pretty cool too, right?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Remember when we said this was a night full of surprises? Not only was Kim Kardashian allowed inside this time, we also… god save us… kind of like this look.

 Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have no time for your punk.

Olivia Wilde attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.The first midriff-baring look on the red carpet, courtesy Olivia Wilde.

Sarah Jessica Parker attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Three cheers for Sarah Jessica Parker, who will probably be on our best dressed list tomorrow because she had the backbone to wear a damn mohawk.

Cameron Diaz attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Cameron Diaz looks kind of how we’d imagine Roy Batty from Blade Runner to dress if he were a pretty blonde lady and also… maybe a monk? Maybe a monk instead of a killer?

Jennifer Lopez attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Points to Jennifer Lopez‘s hair for making us laugh out loud. Seriously. We needed some humor.

Jessica Biel attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We have no idea where Jessica Biel was going with this.

Katy Perry attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Although we hate how Katy Perry is posing here, we kind of like the overall thing.

 Kristen Stewart attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Kristen Stewart wore an ill-fitting jumpsuit in a lovely color.

Maggie Gyllenhaal attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s hair looked great! Her dress matched the red carpet, as you were probably distracted by.

  Allison Williams attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Allison Williams very earnestly claimed to be studying old Sex Pistols photography, but apparently she scrapped that.

Carey Mulligan attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Carey Mulligan wore a big gold safety pin on an otherwise unmemorable dress. Great t-straps, though.

Emma Watson attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We normally think Emma Watson looks fantastic, but this is so boring and one-note.

Jennifer Lawrence attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Jennifer Lawrence nailed it, predictably.

Rita Ora attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.While Rita Ora looks pretty sensational herself.

Rita Ora attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Beyonce will, for sure, be on tomorrow’s worst dressed list.

Ginnifer Goodwin attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We don’t get Ginnifer Goodwin‘s dress, but we do appreciate her strong Siouxsie-esque brow.

Kelly Osbourne attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Kelly Osbourne wore a jumble of things.

Actress Michelle Williams attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Michelle Williams has always had a little punk in her; and although her dress is boring, she looks way cute. Also, why did everyone hear punk and immediately think, “T-straps!”

Renee Zellweger attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Renee Zellweger didn’t bother none.

Dree Hemingway attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Dree Hemingway, leather jacket, chunky shoes.

 Jessica Pare attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Jessica Pare‘s dress is crazy. By which we mean, it is also pants.

…And has a peplum. How is this still happening?

Kylie Minogue attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Kylie Minogue looked elegant and understated.

Madonna attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Everybody sit the fuck down. Madonna lived in the East Village in the ’80s. This is her show now.

Madonna attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Leave it to Madonna to be like, “Hold up. I got this.”

Michelle Dockery attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Michelle Dockery looked really nice!

Miranda Kerr attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Here’s another one of those instances where the famous person thought “being as naked as I can be” was akin to being stylish. Miranda Kerr.

 Stacy Keibler attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Stacy Keibler‘s shoes are nuts.

Brooklyn Decker attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Seemingly, both Brooklyn Decker and Stacy up there heard “punk” and thought… “space”?

…So, cyber punk?

Cara Delevingne attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Cara Delevingne wore a pretty on-point dress, but the greasy hair, unnecessary plunge and mismatched clutch are pulling everything down.

 Chelsea Clinton attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. It’s probably pretty punk to wear a capelet, Chelsea Clinton. We hear that.

Julianne Hough, wearing custom Topshop, attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Julianne Hough did her usual big, frothy thing with some subtle “edgy” elements.

Kate Beckinsale attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. As did Kate Beckinsale.

Karen Elson attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Karen Elson stunned. Always.

Kate Upton attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Kate Upton‘s whole thing was GREEN.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Tom Brady came as Tom Brady, Action Figure, while Gisele Bundchen did an Elizabeth Hurley thing with the snaking nudity.

Alexa Chung attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. The theme really translated to a lot of sheerness and visible underwear, here on Alexa Chung.

 Gwen Stefani attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Can’t help but feel like Gwen Stefani‘s hair takes away from the rather wonderful dress.

Leelee Sobieski attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We are into Leelee Sobieski‘s thing. In a big way. She looks like a ’90s supermodel in an Avedon photo.

Marion Cotillard attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Marion Cotillard has set the bar so high for herself that this felt boring.

Ziyi Zhang attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Another one with no regard for the theme, Ziyi Zhang.

Elizabeth Banks attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  To Elizabeth Banks, we say: wut?

January Jones attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Who’d have thought January Jones would take the theme so seriously? Her makeup is crazy!

Lily Aldridge and Caleb Followill attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Themes aside, Lily Aldridge is impressively pulling off this dusty canary color, alongside husband Caleb Followill.

Ashley Greene attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.Ashley Greene‘s dress was really big!

 Blake Lively attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Blake Lively is somewhat hard to recognize without her trademark thighs.

Donatella Versace attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. ‘Preciate it, Donatella.

Model Jessica Hart attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Lot of semi-nudity tonight. Jessica Hart.

Nicki Minaj attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. The tie-front on Nicki Minaj‘s gown couldn’t be weirder but she looks pretty awesome otherwise.

Paloma Faith attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Paloma Faith and her fascinator!

Actress Uma Thurman attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.  Uma Thurman wore a big gown in a tricky color and looked quite elegant.

 Actress Sienna Miller attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Leather seemed like the obvious choice here but not a lot of people figured that.

We can’t decide if the studs completely overpower Sienna Miller or that she looks kind of great?

licia Keys attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Alicia Keys went for leather and some hair dye.

Doutzen Kroes attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. Doutzen Kroes‘ dress looks like it was made of old tires, which is pretty punk, we guess.

Karlie Kloss attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. We saved Karlie Kloss for last, because the supermodel–wearing Louis Vuitton–unwittingly provided the evening its defining moment.

When a journalist on the red carpet asked her if she would have been punk (back in the day?), she responded with a spritely, “Heck yeah!”

And there was the 2013 Met Gala contained in a single phrase.
