Emmy Rossum In Donna Karan Atelier – 2013 Met Gala

Emmy Rossum In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Met Gala When Emmy Rossum arrived on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet in New York City, I have to say I barely recognized her.

The actress fully embraced her inner punk princess with a Donna Karan Atelier gown—and a bold beauty look to go with it.

The sheer, diaphanous dress trended more on the pretty side. After all, it still had beads, sequins and paillettes, as opposed to pins, spikes and studs.

Far more aggressive was her messy braided faux-hawk and a super-shadowed, exaggerated smokey eye.

Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and Iritdesign jewels, including a collection of knuckle rings and neck-grazing statement earrings, completed Emmy’s rebellious entrance.

Christina Ricci In Vivienne Westwood – 2013 Met Gala

Christina Ricci went mad for plaid at the 2013 Met Gala, hosted on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Rather appropriately, given the evening’s controversial theme, the actress relied on the queen of punk herself, Vivienne Westwood, to outfit her for the red carpet.

After last year’s jaw-dropping gown, Christina had big shoes to fill. And she did with this poufy, high-low couture gown that was gloriously adventurous and anti-establishment.

Pointy-toe Casadei platform pumps and black tights, natch, were necessary additions.

She infused some old-Hollywood glam into this punkish statement with her sparkling Harry Winston earrings and cuffs and her retro, side-parted pin curls, which elevated this moment to another level.

A hot red-orange lippie polished off the look.

Jessica Alba in Tory Burch – 2013 Met Gala

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.

Kylie Minogue In Moschino – 2013 Met Gala

Kylie Minogue In Moschino - 2013 Met Gala

Kylie Minogue wore Moschino as she strutted her radiant self down the Met Gala‘s red carpet.

It’s fairly obvious that Kylie isn’t even trying for a punk look, but her black and white gown is lovely, and Kylie would look good in a paper sack.

Her gold earrings and tortoise shell bangles are an unusual choice to be paired with this dress, but I really love the look. I think most women would have gone for platinum and diamonds, but Kylie is working her out-of-the-norm accessories.

Her bouncy curls, smokey eyes and glossy nude lips are the perfect makeup for any red carpet look.

Gwen Stefani In Maison Martin Margiela – 2013 Met Gala

The punk theme of the 2013 Met Gala in New York City was not lost on Gwen Stefani, who is no stranger to a certain level of grunge appeal—and a good amount of leather and studs.

But the No Doubt songstress left off the shiny embellishment tonight, instead letting her custom confection by Maison Martin Margiela have center stage.

The elegant and edgy design, which featured an asymmetrical, midriff-flaunting tie bodice, was based on an all-black look that took to the Spring 2013 runway.

But this black-and-white version is far more interesting and Met Gala-appropriate.

Minimal Fred Leighton jewels completed the effect, although with such a dramatic shoulder detail, the necklace wasn’t really necessary.

Like other stars, Gwennie contributed an added dose of punk to her look with her beauty choices, including an angular, architectural updo for her platinum hair and a bright-red matte colour for her pout.

Talk about a fashion rebel with a cause.

Miranda Kerr In Michael Kors – 2013 Met Gala

Miranda Kerr In Michael Kors - 2013 Met Gala

Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr looked ravishing on the red carpet of the Met Gala.

As a guest of Michael Kors, Miranda wore a stunning cut-out black gown that fit like a glove. Her spiked Christian Louboutin clutch and diamond bangles offered a great hard-yet-elegant addition to the look.

This gown was made for Miranda, because very few other people in the world have her petite frame and perfectly toned abs.

The deep berry lips and glossy curls are definitely more feminine than punk, but this look is a total win for me.

Kirsten Dunst In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Met Gala

Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte - 2013 Met Gala

Kirsten Dunst looked surprisingly sexy during her walk down the Met Gala red carpet.

The usually demure actress wore a belted, hunter green Louis Vuitton gown with a plunging neckline and ombré feathering on the skirt.

I don’t know if it’s just that Kirsten is typically so covered up, but I find this look quite crass. With both front cleavage and side boob showing, it seems much too revealing, and while everything that’s showing is perfect fit and perky, the dress isn’t particularly flattering.

The star sticks to her standard in the beauty department with subtle makeup save for a matte coral lip and loose waves in her hair–a relief after this gown.

While this is certainly the event for taking fashion risks, I just can’t get on board with this look for Kirsten.

Do you agree that there is just too much revealed, or do you like her risque look?

Julianne Hough In Topshop – 2013 Met Gala

Normally one for bright styles, Julianne Hough embraced the punk-focused theme at Monday’s Met Gala in New York city with a darker colour scheme.

Joining Jamie King and opting to wear a Topshop design, Julianne steered more retro than punk in a white, black, and grey checkered strapless tulle confection.

The ‘Safe Haven’ star snuck in a few punk accents with a high-low hemline to showcase her studded pointed toe, ankle strap pumps, and dark stud earrings.

Julianne went dark on her nails but remained minimal and luminescent in the makeup department. I wish she would have gone a bit more grunge with her beauty choices to balance the frilly dress.

Is this punk enough for the gala theme? I’m not so sure.

FYI. She wore Jacob & Co jewels.
