Anne Hathaway In Valentino – 2013 Met Gala

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?

Michelle Dockery In Burberry – 2013 Met Gala

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?

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2013 Met Gala

French beauty Marion Cotillard wore head to toe Christian Dior with Chopard jewels to the Met Gala.

Her asymmetrically hemmed Spring 2013 gown is a fun choice with its peek-a-boo yellow lining and monochromatic nudes, but it doesn’t feel quite right for the Met Ball. I’m thinking this would be much more appropriate at a slightly less formal event.

I do love that she paired these houndstooth ankle-strapped pumps with this dress–an unexpected combination, and a definite pop of punk–but it still doesn’t quite scream Met Ball to me.

Marion’s barely there makeup and 40s-inspired curls are the perfect compliment for this look, but I’m still feeling underwhelmed. Especially after seeing the other Dior-adorned star at tonight’s event.

January Jones In Chanel – 2013 Met Gala

January Jones completely threw me for a loop, as she took to the 2013 Met Gala red carpet on Monday in New York City.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress was worlds away from her classic Betty Draper character (and from her sublime Met moment last year). But she did put on quite the show with this punk-star alter-ego.

She chopped off the longer knee-length of this Chanel Spring 2009 Couture square-shoulder dress, encrusted with shiny paillettes, which lent an edgier appeal.

The frock paired with metallic shoes was fine, daresay forgettable, but what was more intriguing was January’s hair and makeup.

Talk about a makeover. She outlined her eyes in a heavy, geometric application of liner and covered up her brows. It all made for quite the sci-fi effect—call it alien punk.

A mini-bouffant and braided-back locks topped off the look.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior – 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Lawrence looked like a vintage dream in Christian Dior on the Met Gala red carpet.

I honestly think the new face of Dior looks flawless top to bottom here, but it does make me chuckle just a little that she wore this to a punk-themed event.

The strapless, jewel-encrusted Dior gown is classically glamorous, and the black birdcage veil takes its elegance to another level.

Jennifer’s flawless porcelain skin, deep red lip and black-lined eyes are the perfect classic makeup for this timeless look.
