Like Beyonce Knowles and Florence Welch, Madonna also trotted out Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

However, unlike Bey and Flo, Madge put on a full-fledged costume for the Costume Institute Benefit. She may have arrived late to the red carpet, but she wasn’t going unnoticed.

The singer threw caution to the wind and channeled her inner wild-child and sent out a rebel yell with this pants-less get-up that delivered every touchstone of punk imaginable.

The studs, the spikes and the chains all came out to play. So did the plaid. Grommets and gloves were present and accounted for, right along with grungy ripped fishnet tights and a visible lace bra.

Did I miss anything? Oh, yes. The dog collar choker and locket, and the hot pink Casedei ankle-strap pumps. And, of course, there was the shock-and-awe factor that’s so crucial in chaotic punk style.

To top it all off? A short black Cleopatra wig. She should have done a mohawk.
