Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.
Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.
Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.
Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.
Olivia Wilde: The actress who is soon set to say ‘I Do’ also wore a custom Calvin Klein bandeau dress with black pleat insets. Does a cut-out classify as punk? Maybe not, but she looks outstanding.
Nora Zehetner: With a braided updo and sari-style Marchesa Spring 2013 gown, Nora was more Bollywood than punk; however, she looked like she was having fun and expertly styled her look with Harry Winston jewels, a Marchesa clutch and Edmundo Castillo ‘Divina’ sandals decorated with Swarovski crystals.
Giovanna Battaglia: Dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana caged floral confection, the fashion editor added a punk flare to her look with a safety-pin headpiece and gold platform wedges.
Leslie Mann: The actress nailed her punk look, wearing a splatter-paint J Mendel Pre-Fall 2013 strapless gown with a layered skirt; however, I’m missing her usual sparkle. She almost faded into the background. A gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cayla’ clutch and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.
Carine Roitfeld: Why break a winning formula? The fashion editor was, of course, dressed in Givenchy, wearing a Bambi-motif look from the Fall 2013 collection. This collection was very hit and miss for me but, like Zoe Saldana, Carine picked a winning look.
Pixie Geldof: If anyone was supposed to run away with this punk theme it was British former wild child Pixie. Punk is in her DNA, literally – her dad is Bob Geldof – so I found this Moschino frock and overall styling to be wildly missing the mark.
Aubrey Plaza: The actress’s Marios Schwab Fall 2013 silver scale-like frock with patchwork detailing and slashed sleeves was styled with Barbara Bui strappy pumps and an oversized clutch. Working the night’s trend – smoky eyes – the actress completed her look with a slightly messy updo.
Felicity Jones: The British actress fared much better, wearing Proenza Schouler better than Chloe Sevigny. Felicity’s black-and-copper technical lace dress was styled with black pumps and barely there makeup, working a darker hairdo with blunt bangs.
Emma Roberts: The young actress wore a custom Diane von Furstenberg gown styled with a DVF ‘Lytton’ clutch and Jennifer Fisher jewels, with a studded belt and blue streak in her hair injecting a small element of punk.
Teresa Palmer: The Australian actress’s red DVF gown was far more striking. She styled her look with a DVF ‘Tonda’ clutch, allowing her hair and makeup to bring out the punk in her look.
Greta Gerwig: The actress wore a Saint Laurent Spring 2013 dress which we have seen once before on Miriam Yeung. Greta styled her chiffon gown, which was more boho than punk, with a gold tasselled pendant necklace.
Lily Cole: With the theme being punk, expected to see more than just two Vivienne Westwood gown on the red carpet. Her custom-made creation made entirely of Amazonian wild rubber to demonstrate the versatility of the natural material.
