This year’s Met Gala theme was “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, and since so many of the celebs in attendance nailed it, I couldn’t simply post my fave looks and be done with it. This time, I chose to bring you not only my fave looks, but also the runners-up, and the headscratchers all in one post.
Let’s start with my faves. I loved the ornate Dolce and Gabbana dress on Katy Perry, the grand headpiece on SJP, the elegant Margiela on Gwen Stefani, the stunning, but decidedly NOT punk Givenchy gown on Rooney Mara, and an orange moomoo-like goodness on Ashley Olsen. None of those looks screamed punk to me, but I found these dresses to be interesting, fashion-forward, and gorgeous too. Well, SJP’s panty-flashing Giles gown wasn’t exactly my type, but if anyone could’ve pulled it off it’s her.
Apart from my top 5, I enjoyed so many other looks! From Giovanna Battaglia gilded head-to-toe goodness, to Solange Knowles looking lovely in a Kenzo gown that was perhaps a tad too casual for the Met, but beautiful nonetheless, to Emma Watson in a very sexy Prabal Gurung…there was no shortage of fashion porn at this year’s gala. Some celebs decided to don simple LBDs to the event, which in my opinion was a total waste (I’m looking at you, Michelle Williams), but others made up for it with punk hair (Miley Cyrus), and studs galore (looking gorgeous, Sienna Miller!).
All in all, I loved this year’s fashion offerings. I hate wading through a million photos of boring outfits, and this year there weren’t too many.
So now it’s your turn! Which celebs brought their A-game to the 2013 Costume Institute Gala, and which crashed and burned? Share your opinions in the comments!

What is it about Coachella that makes me drool with envy? Is it the promise of hot desert sun, great bands, and fun fashion? That must be it.
This past weekend, a ton of celebs headed down to Indio, California, and brought their A-game, when it came to style. Katy Perry strutted around wearing a revealing Dolce and Gabbana two-piece, and a whimsical purse. Alexa Chung stuck to her signature style by donning a black and white Wednesday Addams mini dress, while Kate Bosworth looked amazing in a scalloped tank and shorts. My favourite Hollywood couple (Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson) also made an appearance, looking cute and stylish as always, as did Solange, in a pretty pink floral skirt.

“WHAT can I wear – Me, in NYC, asking this! – to sing lead in an up-and-coming band? It’s winter: I was thinking leather pants – but I can’t find any! Tried our H&M – no. Tried Gap: chunky motorcycle leather pants that make my petite frame look lumpy. So I’m just going for slim stretchy pants – unless you can suggest something. Since it gets really hot under the lights, I favor sleeveless tops – and my arms are pretty good b/c I take kung fu. The look I’m trying for is a cross between rocker and the Lumineers/hipsters. I do have awesome sandals (black strappy ones with silver studs) or good, utilitarian-but-feminine boots (black, pointy). Hair? Bangs or no? Short or as long as I can get it? Makeup?” – Suze

Absolutely in love with this Madewell Fall 2012 lookbook, featuring Beyonce’s little sis Solange Knowles. This beautiful lady has been known to gravitate towards vibrant colors and fun pieces, and Madewell looks to be a perfect fit! I adore the styling of this lookbook, and lucky for me, I have lots of similar items in my closet I can play with to attempt these looks.

As a huge fan of the color yellow, I got really excited when I saw both of these ladies rocking my favorite hue. But when it came time to choosing my fave between January Jones in Versace (and turquoise Cartier necklace!!!) and Solange Knowles in a simple and elegant Rachel Roy gown…I just couldn’t decide. So guess what, ladies and gents? I’m going to let you choose the best yellow of the Met Gala.
Take your pick below.
