May 7, 2013 Runway To Red Carpet

Bella Heathcote In Chanel – 2013 Met Gala


Bella Heathcote lived up to her name, as she cut a pretty profile when she walked the red carpet at the Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Like ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the young starlet wore a frock from Chanel’s Spring 2013 Couture runway.

Devoid of spikes and studs, this black-and-white lace dress is not the most punk-rock moment we’ve seen tonight. But the razor-sharp cut of the shoulders added a certain amount of edge.

The Australian actress accessorized with a Chanel black clutch and sparkle from Chanel Fine Jewelry, along with Jimmy Choo ‘Kendall’ sandals. However, I wish she had exchanged her standard, metallic peep-toes for another more adventurous pair—even the lace bootie seen on the runway would have added some funkiness here.

She left the teased and tortured hair for others to flaunt, finishing her prim moment with a polished, side-parted low updo and a light pink lippie.

What do you think? Did Bella deliver too much prettiness or just the right amount of punk?

    The only thing I don’t like are the shoes but she does look pretty.

    Disappointed. The length is wrong, as are the shoes. Pretty but not memorable.

    Pretty, but not at all punk. This looked more punk as presented on the runway…

    I don’t like the shoes with this dress at all.

    Agree with noo and Emma, punk fairytale/Jane Austen. I like this look.

    Where’s the punk?? If this was a Jane Austen themed event, she would’ve been the it girl but it’s not. This is borderline creepy doll and the shoes are just wrong.

    I like the dress on her and her hair and makeup. The shoes aren’t working, but I think the shoes from the runway, would’ve looked even worse, and the clutch is boring.

    You know, it’s kind of cool and offbeat. I think it’s punk Jane Austen 😉
    I really like it!

    Not impressed. (Why does her head look like it’s glued on to her body???) She doesn’t have the height or attitude to pull this off. That thick winged liner is WAY too cutesy with this look. So are the glittery shoes. A classic case of little-girl-who-went-rummaging-around-in-her-mother’s-closet.

    She is enchanting, loving it. The chosen punk theme is so disappointing, I’m ready to ignore it at this point.

      The THEME itself is disappointing? What does that even mean? It’s more like hardly anyone dressed according to the theme.

      • noo May 7, 2013 at 1:43 am #

        I think the theme is a reaction to all the studs and props being used in garments these days (i think it’s lame)!!!

        • Christine May 7, 2013 at 1:54 am #

          Me too. No one is following the theme except for miley.

      • Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 2:10 am #

        @Kathy “disappointing” was my reaction to celebs. trying to incorporate punk elements into their looks unsuccessfully (like Jennifer Morrison with her mohawk, or Nicole Ricci…) So I don’t mind overlooking and giving a pass if the theme is not being followed.

  13. SkirtTheIssue May 7, 2013 at 1:28 am #

    So, so pretty!

  14. noo May 7, 2013 at 1:27 am #

    This is my favorite look so far. admittedly it doesn’t look punk, more like edgy fairytale, but i love it all the same 😀
