Solange Knowles In Kenzo – 2013 Met Gala

SolangeKnowles

Big sister Beyonce is the honorary chair of the 2013 Met Gala tonight, but Solange Knowles still made sure to make her mark at New York’s Metropolitan Museum.

The songstress, who seemingly never fails to indulge us with her love of print, once again perked up the red carpet with this dizzyingly patterned dress by Kenzo matched with an Edie Parker box clutch.

If there’s one thing that can be said about this look, it definitely took punk to funk.

While fun, the semi-casual black-and-blue moment was a bit less dramatic than what I was expecting, even with the leg-baring slit sliced up the left side.

Standard black sandals were subdued, especially for Solange.

She did deliver the theatrics with her fabulous, signature ‘fro, which could quite possibly be the highest I’ve seen it.

Giant statement earrings, which reminded me of evil eyes, were bejewelled and big enough to banish any negative energy.

Emilia Clarke In Ralph Lauren – 2013 Met Gala

Emilia Clarke In Ralph Lauren - 2013 Met Gala

‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke looked striking in Ralph Lauren on the red carpet of the Met Gala.

The sweetheart neckline and color of love dress fits the star beautifully, but it definitely feels more Valentine’s Day than punk.

Her side swept locks revealed her one punk accent for the night–Fred Leighton cross earrings.

I love seeing Emilia and her natural brunette hair (a far cry from her white blonde strands in ‘Game of Thrones’), and love this look, even though she did take a very subtle approach to the night’s theme.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Valentino Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow In Valentino Couture - 2013 Met Gala

There was not a stitch of punk within Gwyneth Paltrow’s look for the 2013 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday; however she was pretty in pink.

I wasn’t expecting too many to embrace the punk theme, so I am not surprised to see the actress opt for this Valentino Couture gown which was custom made which she styled with Wilfredo Rosado earrings.

You will be delighted to see that her pink gown features a nude insert in the shoulders, and not down the side of her skirt on this occasion.

As much as I love this look, I wish it was more fitted around the waist — at present, Gwyneth looks wider at the waist than she usually looks. Plus, I wish some punk element had been added to her look even if it was a studded Valentino clutch or a McQueen skull clutch.

What do you think?

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier – 2013 Met Gala

‘Vampire Diaries’ star Nina Dobrev went for it with the punk theme at the Met Gala, and is looking totally sexy on the red carpet.

Wearing a Monique Lhuillier corseted, black lace pantsuit accented with a black leather halter and tulle overskirt, Nina is beyond fierce.

Her Rupert Sanderson pumps are the perfect accent.

Her strong cat eye and side swept locks say punk without getting costumey, and her jewels add some glamour to the entire look.

I think Nina is one of the best of the night by going punk without looking like she’s dressed for Halloween. Do you agree?

Jaime King in Topshop – 2013 Met Gala

Instead of opting for a big-name designer, Jamie King chose Topshop to produce her look for the Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

Donning a sleek suit with a lace turtleneck underneath, the ‘Hart of Dixie’ star struck the perfect balance of punk, the event’s theme, and sexy.

To evoke the classic punk ‘do of messy-hair-covering-eyes, Jamie flawlessly executed a less messy iteration with a deep side part and straight strands.

The actress topped her style with a spikey gold crown, dramatic diamond dagger earrings, and simple makeup with a strong brow.

All in all, it was everything punk and more.

Nicole Richie In Topshop – 2013 Met Gala

Nicole Richie In Topshop - 2013 Met Gala

Nicole Richie really got into the spirit of the punk theme of the 2013 Met Gala, which was held in New York City on Monday evening.

The fashion designer wore a Topshop high-neck long sleeve fully embroidered column gown that isn’t as punk as I was expecting from Nicole. However, her hair and makeup brought out the punk elements.

I’m always impressed with Topshop custom red carpet looks; me thinks H&M need to take a few points from the British retailer.

Nicole styled her look with Vero Cuoio shoes, a vintage silver Maria Francesca Pepe ring and of course a House of Harlow 1960 clutch.

Do you like Nicole’s punk look , or is it more fright night than punk?
