Amber Heard In Emilio Pucci – 2013 Met Gala

Amber Heard In Emilio Pucci - 2013 Met Gala

Amber Heard, wasn’t working the role of blonde bombshell as she’s sporting darker locks these days, however, she still looked stunning as she took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala held in New York City on Monday evening.

The actress was the guest of Peter Dundas, who created this gorgeous red Emilio Pucci gown especially for her.

Her red chantilly lace backless gown with red sheer point d’esprit panels and ruby red crystal and scarlet beaded embroidery all over was accessorized with a matching studded minaudière also from Pucci.

Glossy side-swept wavy locks and a nude lip colour completed her look.

I am glad she didn’t opt for a red lip colour; it would’ve been too obvious, even though punk theme probably required it. I love how her natural beauty stands out here.

The first to make it into my top ten tonight.

Jennifer Morrison In Donna Karan Atelier – 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Morrison In Donna Karan Atelier - 2013 Met Gala

‘Once Upon a Time’ actress Jennifer Morrison ventured to the land of punk at the Met Gala tonight at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Her Donna Karan Atelier gown was a fierce statement in sheer black lace that was just shredded enough to look messy and modish at the same time.

The skin-coloured underlining added a sultry nude effect, while the thigh-high ripped slit through the dress packed on even more rebellious flavour.

This dark fairytale was completed with a black Edie Parker clutch, Giuseppe Zanotti platform pumps, and custom jewels by Jherwitt.

Of course, what’s a punk theme without a mohawk? Jennifer delivered our first sprayed and gelled faux-hawk of the evening, then finished her look with a poison-apple-red lip.

Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture – 2013 Met Gala

The host of the night herself, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour, was one of the first down the red carpet at tonight’s Met Gala.

Wearing a Chanel Couture gown from the Spring 2013 collection, Anna embodies spring–only the night’s theme is punk!

Clearly, the editorial maven chose to do whatever she pleased, versus follow any sort of thematic structure, and that really is little surprise!

Her famed bob is perfect as usual, and her berry lip is the perfect match for her gown.

This is a lovely, vibrant look and if I dared complain about anything, it would of course be the total lack of punk. If I dared complain.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture - 2013 Met Gala

The Met Gala theme for 2013 is ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’. The evening was kick started by one of the co-chairs, Rooney Mara.

We should not be surprised that the actress was wearing a Givenchy Couture look, but for an event of this magnitude, I am very surprised that her look, whilst modified, has been worn once before.

Back in May 2011, Penelope Cruz wore this white lace look at the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ London premiere.

The difference is that Rooney’s Couture gown features an additional lace detailing on the shoulders which cascades down the front of her zipper-accented gown.

Shunning the fresh face trend, she opted for a black currant lip colour with her dark locks tied back into a neat ponytail.

I don’t know about you – even putting Penelope Cruz’ similar look aside, I still have a strong case of déjà vu.

This is the not the first, or the second, but a third time she has donned a lace Givenchy Couture look.

Maybe Rooney and Riccardo Tisci need a plan B. Plan A is tired already.
