Red Carpet Fashion Awards

‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture,’ the theme to Monday’s Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is all about paying homage to a time when people went against the establishment.

Sofia Coppola did just that when she graced the red carpet in a pajama-inspired design from Marc Jacobs Fall 2013. A decidedly non-punk look, Sofia took the anti-establishment theme to heart by opting out of the theme completely.

I do love Sofia’s look–the cut is simple, the style is flattering, and the silvery-grey colour is beautiful–but I wish she had gone just a little bit punk.

Sofia rounded out her laid back look with delicate heels, a black clutch, and barely there makeup.

I personally would have paired this red carpet look with a very dark berry lip colour for a flash of punky glamour. Do you agree?

Allison Williams brought her best punk princess style to Monday’s Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The ‘Girls’s star won me over in a sexy gown by Altuzarra.

Nothing says punk like all black, especially when it includes sheer panels and lace. Allison joined many other starlets by opting for long sleeves, but she showed off her figure with a sheer skirt and lace panels along her sides and midriff.

Smokey winged eye shadow, a nude lip and glossy, casual waves completed Allison’s punk perfection.

MileyCyrusMarcJacobs

Miley Cyrus has been building her punk sartorial cred for a while now, so it’s no surprise she dressed 100% for the Met Gala theme of ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ in New York City on Monday.

Miley vamped it up in a look from Marc Jacobs Fall 2013. Her long-sleeved black mesh gown and nude underpinning was a straight shot ode to the punk era.

Theme aside, the style was very Miley–mostly edgy with a hint of sex appeal. The dress grazed over her curves for a sexy, yet covered feel.

Clearly dedicated to the punk style, I love that Miley went for the theme, but I wish she had just taken a step back with her hair. The spiky ‘do is a bit over the top and I’d much prefer to see her red lip paired with deep side part and slicked back strands.

How do you feel about Miley’s overtly punk hair style?

CocoRochaEmanuelUngaro

Coco Rocha walked the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The star of ‘The Face’ worked a Emanuel Ungaro by Fausto Puglisi design from Fall 2013.

Coco’s high-neck, long-sleeved gown had a lot going on between the thigh-high slit, leopard print, and the 3D gold butterfly details across the bust and arms.

The model opted for a longer version than what went down the runway and I can’t say I’m pleased. If anyone can pull off this intense design it’s Coco, but with the added leopard from the extra length of the gown, my eyes really don’t know where to focus.

What do you think of Coco’s wildly embellished look? Too much or just enough punk?

JessicaAlbaToryBurch

Jessica Alba was a style star at the Met Gala in New York City on Monday.

Clad in Tory Burch, the actress interpretted the night’s punk theme while gracing the red carpet looking completly like her normal sartorial self.

The curve-hugging dark blue leather gown was all punk, while the sexy cutouts and feminine, lace-like laser cut embellishments were the refined, style-savvy Jessica we know and love.

The actress upped her punk cred with a black and gold spiked clutch and double snake ear cuffs by Jack Vartanian.

In terms of hair and makeup, Jessica nailed it: an on trend topknot was complimented by a braid down the back of Jessica’s head. A nude lip and grey smokey eye finished off a winning red carpet look.
