Kirsten Dunst In Louis Vuitton – 2013 Met Gala

Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte - 2013 Met Gala

Kirsten Dunst looked surprisingly sexy during her walk down the Met Gala red carpet.

The usually demure actress wore a belted, hunter green Louis Vuitton gown with a plunging neckline and ombré feathering on the skirt.

I don’t know if it’s just that Kirsten is typically so covered up, but I find this look quite crass. With both front cleavage and side boob showing, it seems much too revealing, and while everything that’s showing is perfect fit and perky, the dress isn’t particularly flattering.

The star sticks to her standard in the beauty department with subtle makeup save for a matte coral lip and loose waves in her hair–a relief after this gown.

While this is certainly the event for taking fashion risks, I just can’t get on board with this look for Kirsten.

Do you agree that there is just too much revealed, or do you like her risque look?

Julianne Hough In Topshop – 2013 Met Gala

Normally one for bright styles, Julianne Hough embraced the punk-focused theme at Monday’s Met Gala in New York city with a darker colour scheme.

Joining Jamie King and opting to wear a Topshop design, Julianne steered more retro than punk in a white, black, and grey checkered strapless tulle confection.

The ‘Safe Haven’ star snuck in a few punk accents with a high-low hemline to showcase her studded pointed toe, ankle strap pumps, and dark stud earrings.

Julianne went dark on her nails but remained minimal and luminescent in the makeup department. I wish she would have gone a bit more grunge with her beauty choices to balance the frilly dress.

Is this punk enough for the gala theme? I’m not so sure.

FYI. She wore Jacob & Co jewels.

Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga – 2013 Met Gala

Carey Mulligan joined a host of other bold names, as she stunned on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

‘The Great Gatsby’ actress interpreted the evening’s punk theme with an impressively smart flourish in her black Balenciaga dress that riffed on the style era’s obsession with safety pins.

The angular, cutout design was neither look-at-me or louche. But the oversized gold pin at the neck still spoke volumes.

Was it an homage to the uber-famous Versace safety-pin dress donned by Elizabeth Hurley in the ’90s? Perhaps.

Regardless, I have to say I love this tongue-in-cheek variation that’s simultaneously classic and cool-girl, amidst a sea of overwrought edge at tonight’s ball.

Carey slicked back her deeply side-parted blonde locks and wore a nude lip to complete this refined look.

Call it sophisticated, new-age punk.

Jennifer Lopez In Michael Kors – 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Lopez In Michael Kors - 2013 Met Gala

Jennifer Lopez was a guest of Michael Kors at the Met Gala.

The singer/actress looked ravishing in the slinky, sequined leopard-esque Michael Kors gown, which she accented with Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and a Rona Pfeiffer ring.

The gown is stunning, although not punk, but let’s get real, the real star of this show is the hair–look at that hair!

Jennifer’s sculptural fauxhawk updo is a piece of art and beyond fierce. She is owning this nod to punk and is doing a pretty good job of stealing the hair show at this point, in my opinion!

I also love her smokey eye and flawless golden skin, but once again–that gorgeous hair!

Are you as enthusiastic as I am about JLo’s hair?

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’?
