Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Julianna Moore In Balenciaga - 2013 Met Gala

Never one to blend in, Julianne Moore stood out in a forest green frock in a sea of black and pink at Monday’s Met Gala in New York.

Draped in Balenciaga, Julianne’s dress was simplistic and artistic with origami fold details along the bust and waist.

Paired with monochromatic earrings by Irene Neuwirth and heels, the actress looked fashion forward in the rich colour.

One of my favourite parts to the entire look? Julianne’s fun and totally on-theme hair. Her red strands teased into a faux hawk with slicked back sides was as chic as it was punk.

A major red carpet thumbs up for Julianne.

Claire Danes glittered at the 2013 Met Gala in New York, celebrating The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibit.

From a distance, her Oscar de la Renta black tulle gown, paired with a clutch and shoes from the designer, definitely echoed more ‘couture’ rather than chaotic inspiration.

But, get closer and you’ll see the gunmetal chain-mail embroidery that subtly belies a certain rebellious edge.

That said, this ensemble needed a different, punk-y hairstyle. Some teased and spiked strands to go with Claire’s smoked-out eyes and black-lacquered nails could have worked magic.

SiennaMillerBurberry

Sienna Miller paid homage to both the age of punk and her British roots in Burberry at Monday’s Met Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The actress took the punk theme quite literally with a white-hot gown topped with a gold-studdeded cropped leather jacket.

Sienna’s wavy, slightly bedhead-like hair was elevated to a more ‘done’ place with a spiked headband that matched her ear cuff.

Overall, I’m a big fan of Sienna’s look, though I do wish it were a bit more punk-glam for the major annual gala.

Do you think Sienna had the best punk style of the night?

Naomie Harris In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Met Gala
Bond girl Naomie Harris was an ultra-violet vision at the 2013 Met Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Forget ’50 Shades of Grey,’ the ‘Skyfall’ actress explored the many sides of purple with this brilliantly colour-saturated Donna Karan Atelier gown with an Edie Parker clutch.

The top half of the dress was standard glamour with its draped lines. But the rows and rows of feathered frou that floated down from the waist to the long train added a slightly less conventional flair.

Still, with Naomie’s radiant but safe hair and makeup, it was one of the less punk-like moments on the red carpet.

Not that I’m complaining.

Emily Blunt In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Met Gala

Emily Blunt went the route of all black for Monday’s punk-themed Met Gala in New York.

The actress wore a gown by Carolina Herrera.

The all black-ensemble proved it’s all in the details with a slit, key hole cutout, and buttons down the front of the dress.

Emily kept her makeup simple aside from a swipe of hot pink on her eyelids and a braided topknot style for her locks.

I’m a big fan of Emily’s sartorial choices but this look is not my favorite. I imagine Met Gala styles to be more exciting and over the top than this beautiful, but simple design.

Do you like Emily’s Met Gala style?

Showing us that blondes really do have more fun, Anne Hathaway took her pixie cut up a notch with a new platinum colour at the 2013 Met Gala in New York. Apparently, she was inspired by punk-goddess Debbie Harry of Blondie.

So Nicole Richie wasn’t the only one with a brave new hair hue on Monday.

The ‘Les Miserables’ actress completely surrendered to the evening’s punk theme, flaunting a surprising exhibitionist side with this Valentino Couture embellished vintage gown, accented with feathered cuffs.

The ziggy-zaggy beading of the too-sheer black dress did precious little to cover her curves. So she certainly brought the sexy, shock side of punk to the gala.

A Valentino Noir Lucite clutch and a bright yellow manicure completed the look.

I have to say, after a few underwhelming red-carpet moments this year, there is something about this devil-may-care, bad-girl side of Anne that is rather intriguing.

What do you think of her transformation?

MichelleDockeryBurberry

Michelle Dockery walked the famous red carpet stairs at the Met Gala in New York on Monday.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a Burberry sheath dress.

I love this look: the inky hue and croc-embossed texture is perfection in a classic cut and topped with a mega statement necklace.

While it doesn’t read ‘punk’ to me at all, it’s one of my top styles of the night. Classic-meets-edgy, and all around beutiful.

Where do you stand? Yay or nay?
