Celebrity Red-Carpet Style: Metropolitan Museum’s 2013 Costume Institute Gala

Collages220All fashion eyes and some upturned noses paid close attention to this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Customarily, Hollywood A-listers, pop icons, and fashion’s elite give a nod to fashion exhibit’s that are currently being viewed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Last year, the fabulously fashionable gave homage to Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada in reference to the exhibit “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.” This season was no exception with the glitterati referencing Punk Chic, giving nod to the Met’s recent exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture.”

The red carpet fashion at the Met Costume Gala always excels and provides more range of individual taste, style and points of view than can be seen at the Oscars, Golden Globes, and even, The Grammys. However, this year celebrities outdid themselves with fashion-forward perspectives that covered the gamut from haute couture to punk chic to what were they thinking.

Fashion Reverie gives you a pointed analysis of some looks that were a glamorous distillation of sophistication and style, and some looks that made a less than stellar statement.

Collages219Madonna, Stacey Keibler, Donatella Versace, and Christina Ricci were some of the red-carpet elite that paid homage to Punk Chic. And they all looked appropriately punked out in Givenchy, Rachel Roy,Versace, and Vivienne Westwood, respectively.

Collages218All camera lens immediately turn to Beyoncé as she enters any room or walks down a red carpet. And this year’s honorary chair one would have expected a better look from her than stellar gown from Givenchy was a disappointment. Other music queens flaunted interesting choices. Katy Perry made an and eye-catching statement in Dolce and Gabbana and Taylor Swift is stunning in J. Mendel.

Collages214Supermodels Coco Rocha, Cara Delevigne, and Karolina Kurkoba were not be outdone on the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala. They all brought their respective versions of Punk Chic, wearing Emanuel Ungaro, Burberry, and Mary Katrantzou, respectively.

Collages215Solange Knowles and Nicki Minaj both know the power of big hair and they both look fetching in Kenzo, and Tommy Hilfiger. However, bigness is not Kim Kardashian’s forte, and her choice of a Riccardo Tisci floral was a huge miss, literally!!


Anne Hathaway’s blonde coif is a stunner, and she is all so sexy and slinky in a sheer Valentino, while Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacob’s confirms that topping Maxim’s 2013 sexiest woman was not a joke. Nicole Ritchie is also lovely in Topshop.


Ashley and Mary-Kate love vintage which explains their respective choice of Vintage Dior and Vintage Chanel. While, Lily Collins is punked out in Moschino. Still, supermodel out shines them all in Louis Vuitton.
