The Best Dressed at the Met Ball 2013 "Punk: Chaos To Couture"


The punk-themed Met Ball was the last place in the world to play it safe. I expected more anarchy on the red carpet but apparently not everyone got the dress code right or took the style challenge seriously. Or maybe celebrities aren't ware of what classic, old school punk is about. However, my beloved Christina Ricci didn't let me down! She looked adorable, dressed in a Vivienne Westwood tartan dress and fishnets. She absolutely nailed it! The pointy toe heels were also a good idea. So, yes, that's the spirit, Christina. Punk chic, well done!

The gorgeous Lily Cole was my 2nd favourite. I knew she would attend a punk themed event in high style, flawlessly. Once again, a Vivienne Westwood couture gown - it can never go wrong. Black nails, rubber platforms, wine lips and bleached strawberry blonde hair instead of the usual ginger locks made this outfit epic with a grunge, kinderwhore approach!

 I must also mention that I fell in love with Sienna Miller's kick ass Burberry jacket. Always trust the British roots!

Even though she didn't look very 1970's punk, Jennifer Lawrence was gorgeously classy in Dior. The red lips, pale skin and netted veil add a vampy, lady-like, retro edge. Very charming! Dita Von Teese would be proud.

 

Now, time for make-up.

Emmy Rossum looks beautiful. Such fierce smokey eye make up, paired with nude lips! Absolutely stunning. The braided hairstyle is also gorgeous - romantic and 1980's ethnic chic. So inspiring!

 I know everyone loved Rooney Mara's dress but frankly, it was her make-up that catched my eye. That eggplant lip colour is awesome! The lashes look natural and I'm fond of the contrast between eyes and lips. A modern, minimal take on the goth side.
 
Ginnifer Goodwin rocked a darkwave eye make-up. Very 80's and New Romantic. Love the eyebrow effect, so badass!

  1. Hoje recebi o photobombing deste evento e, realmente, tirando um ou outro destes casos, perguntei-me "where is the punk"?

    Com tanto Galliano, tanta Westwood, tanto McQueen para escolher... Se fosse por estarem apertadas de trocos, podiam sempre espetar uns alfinetes d'ama nos Guccis e pronto... Enfim, piranha tem medo de sair das águas do rio.

    1. Sim! Falta de imaginação e chronic comfort zone, a meu ver. Também esperava que usassem e abusassem de Galliano e McQueen! Esta gente é muito limitada e pouco eclética no que diz respeito a conceito de estilo mutável. Bah, boriiing.

  2. Eu sou uma apaixonada confessa pela maquilhagem e pela rede que a Jennifer Lawrence usou!
    That's my style.

    1. Apesar de ter fugido à atitude punk, a Jennifer estava deslumbrante, de facto! Muito 50's!

    1. Aquele casaco da Sienna, quem me dera! Muito "Sid & Nancy" da parte dela. A Emmy está mesmo "uau!". O vestido em si também lhe ficou imensamente bem, mas de punk não tinha muito.

  9. There is a debut horror book out from someone from the UK. On the front of the cover it says the words: THE MOST FRIGHTENING HORROR NOVEL EVER WRITTEN. It is called: THE LIFT BY PAUL BRUCE. Can you do a review of it in your blog to say if you think it is the most frightening horror novel ever written? The book is available on hardback book from AMAZON, WATERSTONES, ETC.... And also on AMAZON KINDLE E-BOOK.

  10. I was kind of wishing there was a little more punk attitude on the red carpet too but agree Jennifer Lawrence looks fab in that beautiful dress! Christina Ricci looks amazing in Westwood too.
