Cameron Diaz In Stella McCartney – 2013 Met Gala

Cameron Diaz In Stella McCartney - 2013 Met Gala

Cameron Diaz shut down the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening in New York City.

While many stars shunned the punk theme in fear of not looking pretty, Cameron’s Stella McCartney custom gown was one of the few which said punk while still looking pretty – pretty damn awesome.

Not only is this gown in my beloved colour, electric-blue, but it also features an on-trend cape – which I had wished to see on this red carpet – and a spiked belt for added punk effect.

With the addition of Stella McCartney accessories including platform studded sandals and a wooden box clutch, the Stella – Cameron Met Gala red carpet combo continues to be a certified hit.

Nicki Minaj In Tommy Hilfiger – 2013 Met Gala

Never one to shirk her rebellious, boundaries-pushing spirit, Nicki Minaj made some loud style noise at the 2013 Met Gala tonight in New York City.

The petite rapper wore a navy-blue Tommy Hilfiger gown with a train, which actually seemed too long as it puddled around her.

The dress really wasn’t all that edgy or inspired, save for the side cutouts. After all, we’ve seen her in far more extravagant and garish creations than this.

So it’s no surprise that the biggest shock factor was our hair chameleon’s grunge-punk ‘do. It completely stole my attention away from her sartorial selection.

Her teased, micro-curly locks were only rivaled in volume by Solange Knowles’ ‘fro. But I’m not sure Nicki carries off her platinum shockwave of nearly frightening, frizzed strands quite as regally.

An oxblood-red lip and a fringe of faux lashes completed the look.

Did Nicki’s look have you shouting ‘fierce’ or ‘faux-pas’?

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – 2013 Met Gala

Unlike her sister Dakota, who took a subtle approach to the night’s red carpet, Elle Fanning made quite a style statement at the Met Gala.

While her Rodarte tie-died swirl gown is decidedly more psychedelic than punk, it’s fun and youthful and a great choice for a 15-year-old on a red carpet.

And then there’s her makeup. The over-the-top winged navy and red eye shadow is the perfect match to the gown, and I definitely give her props for having fun with the theme, but is that actually punk? I’m not sure, but once again, you can’t fault a teenager for having a little fun on a night like tonight!

Are you liking Elle’s dramatic look, or is it too left field?

Rita Ora In Thakoon – 2013 Met Gala

Rita Ora In Thakoon - 2013 Met Gala

Sporting her trademark red lip colour, Rita Ora joined a host of stars who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

The British singer wore a Thakoon look which was created especially for this event.

I had expected her dress to be covered in safety pins, but her ivory dress with an asymmetrical top and cutout waist was accented with gold-chain embroidery.

More gold bling was to be had with Tasaki jewels and a gold clutch that completed her look.

Are you glad Rita put the try-hard on pause tonight, or were you expecting more?

Kerry Washington In Vera Wang – 2013 Met Gala

Kerry Washington In Vera Wang - 2013 Met Gala

Kerry Washington made a sterling effort to infuse some punk in her pretty look while taking to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala in New York on Monday.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a custom Vera Wang sleeveless V-neck lavender metallic floral print mermaid gown featuring a silk and lace flange detail within the train and chrysanthemum lace peplum accent.

What made this look punk?

I would say the sexy fishnet panel in the plunge, her black leather opera gloves, and the sexy cat-eye makeup.

Is Kerry selling punk to you here?
