This year’s Met Ball theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture. Some celebs really took it to the next level, and some just fell flat on their over-polished faces. Let’s see who really used Johnny Rotten as a style icon, and who just looked like a pop-punk starlette.
These looks were Sid Vic-i-licious:
SJP might not seem like a punk princess but she rocked the power clash in this dramatic Giles Deacon gown, Philip Treacy mohawk hat, and boots by Louis Vuitton.
Our favorite teen star shed her country roots and showed off her dark roots with a bleached-out hair do and a netted frock by Marc Jacobs.
Mary-Kate Olsen screamed bohemian-chic rocker (although maybe not punk) in this vintage Chanel number.
Supermodel Lily Cole took the chaotic theme to heart and stopped traffic in this grunge-circus number by Vivienne Westwood.
Our Lady of Drama Florence Welch rocked this darkly ethereal dress from Givenchy and killed it!
What the f**K! Anja Rubik knows she looks bitchin’ in Anthony Vaccarello.
Sinisterly clad Dree Hemingway looks more like a Poe story in Stella McCartney.
Now the clueless celebs who clearly didn’t read the invitation and missed the theme completely:
Kate Upton in Diane Von Furstenberg?
Linda Evangelista in Marchesa?
Solange Knowles in Kenzo?
Cool, rock on!
