Ahoy from the most fashionable night of the whole year, which – as I guessed earlier – hosted some of the most gorgeous gowns I’ve ever seen in my life. The theme (Punk: Chaos to Couture) was so explicit and wide yet it held the risk of lacking imagination and falling in the trap of obviousness.

My two evident favourites were Anne Hathaway; with her striking new hairdo and color & unbelievably edgy, courageous and elegant vintage Valentino gown – and the absolute red carpet queen Sarah Jessica Parker with her breathtaking Giles gown and a custom made Philip Treacy hat – which I think represents the punk in fashion as no other thing in the world can.

Click through to see all the looks from the MET Gala 2013 red carpet and my reviews on the best and the worst looks of the night.

Anja Rubik stayed loyal to her shocking style code and favourite designer Anthony Vaccarello, and in my opinion nailed it with a mini red leather dress which captured the essence of the theme so much better than last year. Rosie Huntington Whiteley‘s Gucci gown was another striking look from the night; rebel of perfect olive green satin teamed with tasteful mesh and rocker feather&sequins embodied in the sexy silhouette of the super model.

Fanning sisters opted for Rodarte and as much as I think Elle Fanning found a dress that was really suitable for her age and the theme; it was Dakota Fanning who got me with her just-the-perfect-amount-of-cleavage-looking-incredibly-hot black deep V neck gown (with an even more spectacular back).

My bizarre Princess Chloe Sevigny didn’t dissappoint me and looked marvelously retro and modern at the same time in her Proenza Schouler dress (what else?) and turban. Florence Welch was another star who succesfully turned the goth into punk – the difference of which may be confusing to a lot of people. Eve was surprisingly cool – surprising because I haven’t seen her in like ever, and in my memory lane she is inside the “tacky” folder. Prejudice is bad, they say.

Emma Watson looked so different from her normal self and got closer to the new character she is trying to build in her Prabal Gurung cut out dress, which also was one of the most theme-appropriate dresses of the night. (At this point I have to give it to Constance Jablonski, who rocked an otherwise prom-fail one shoulder Wes Gordon gown with the perfect ever leather harness neck.)

Last but not least; honorable mentions go to bohemian queen Ashley Olsen, who in my opinion chose one of the most daring looks of the night, and Nicole Richie for her as bold as her Topshop gown hair.

Of course there were other fascinating looks such as Blake Lively, Amanda Seyfried, Joan Smalls etc but as for the rest the only thing I can say is: this is the greatest fashion event of the year and it’s a costume ball. It’s the only night where you can go overboard and show your vision to the world, why stick to your regular gowns (Jennifer Lawrence, Marion Cotillard – I blame the million dollar Dior contract for this) or boring as hell outfits (Ivanka Trump, Heidi Klum, Kate Upton etc) or the worse, lack the tiny bit of imagination and go for the overly obvious (Sienna Miller, Miley Cyrus)?

Though I believe I can’t blame anyone for being irrelevant where the host of the event Anna Wintour wore a pretty but neither here nor there floral piece from Chanel.

Overall the night didn’t dissappoint me and left me with some looks that I will go “ooh” and “aah” for the upcoming years.

  1. What a great recap. As an ardent Madonna fan, I’ve been looking at hundreds of photos of her on the red carpet coming in on Facebook. I loved her daring look, but as I said, she can do no wrong in my book. I loved looking at all the photos you posted of everyone else. Thanks.
