Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Ashley Greene In Marchesa - 2013 Met Gala

Despite being surprised by Ashley Greene’s choice of designer at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night, I thought her look perfectly suited the punk mood.

Upon seeing Ashley’s name on the attendees list, I was expecting a so-so blush gown.

However, even though she strode on the side of something very feminine, her Marchesa Fall 2013 voluminous, black and gold-embroidered gown was styled with vampy makeup, a slightly messy updo and a dark nail polish.

Her gown was kept in focus with Harry Winston earrings and a clutch added to the mix.

Katie Holmes In Calvin Klein Collection - 2013 Met Gala

Katie Holmes looked very graceful when she stepped out onto the red carpet for Monday night’s 2013 Met Gala in New York City.

While there isn’t much punk rock going on with her custom Calvin Klein Collection creation styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and white sandals, the brunette beauty did opt for a slicked back bouffant and smoky eyes.

Her ivory halter gown with a flowing train is Katie at her best, but does the fact that it isn’t really on theme lose her style points?

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy Couture - 2013 Met Gala

The biggest shocker of the night would’ve been if Amanda Seyfried had not worn Givenchy to the 2013 Met Gala, but of course she did.

The blonde beauty selected a dramatic print gown with a draped back from the Givenchy Spring 2007 Couture collection.

Not only was the print eye-catching, but also the lengthy train. What is the Met Gala without a dramatic train?

Opting for flawless makeup, Amanda completed her look with Fred Leighton jewels.

Michelle Williams Saint Laurent - 2013 Met Gala

Michelle Williams attempted to vamp up her style for the punk themed 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening in New York City.

I say attempt because even with the vampy makeup and punk rock hairdo, I still see sweet innocent Michelle underneath.

Keeping to her trademark classic style, she donned a black strapless Saint Laurent gown with a high-low hemline, with black T-strap Saint Laurent pumps giving the look a ladylike finish.

Fred Leighton jewels, which included a diamond tiara, and an Olympia Le-Tan book clutch for a quirky finish completed her look.

Should Michelle have pushed the punk element further? A pair of studded cuffs or studded Giuseppe Zanotti pumps perhaps?

Ashley Olsen In vintage Dior & Mary-Kate Olsen In vintage Chanel - 2013 Met Gala

Don’t be surprised that the Olsen twins opted to go vintage and oversized at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening; after all, this is their red carpet M.O.

Ashley Olsen: The designer’s beaded orange Dior Couture dress with a sheer overlay is a beautiful design, but for some reason made me think of one of Andre Leon Tally’s capes.

Mary-Kate Olsen: This look was my least favourite of the two; her Chanel beaded, drop-waist black dress would’ve been so much better without the fur-trimmed robe.

Which Olsen look works better for you?

Ashley? Mary-Kate? Or none-of-the-above?

One wonders if the words; belt, or waist-nipping mean anything to these girls.

Elizabeth Banks In Atelier Versace - 2013 Met Gala

With Elizabeth Banks confirmed to wear Brian Atwood footwear, there was no chance of her wearing a gown to the 2013 Met Gala, which was held in New York City on Monday evening.

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress donned a gold Atelier Versace gold chainmail jacket from the Spring 2013 collection, which hits all the right fashion notes for the theme of this event.

With black piping on her frock, the look was perfectly accessorized with a gold studded black Atwood minaudiére, and sexy Brian Atwood leather fringed ‘Elizabeth’ sandals with gold metal studs.

Gold jewels, an updo and cat-eyes completed her stylish uber sexy look.

‘Girls’ star Lena Dunham attended the 2013 Met Gala in New York City with designer Erdem Moralioglu by her side.

For the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion party of the year, she covered up in a custom Erdem gown that was flattering but verging on more forgettable territory—especially on the radically themed red carpet of this year’s event.

With the high bib neckline and the frills, what immediately came to mind was ‘prairie-girl-punk.’

On this occasion, Lena’s tattoos work quite well with the rebel theme, while a smokey eye and nude lippie, along with a slicked-back bob finished the look.

She’s sometimes been a red-carpet enigma, puzzling us with her sartorial statements. How do you think she fares at the Met?
