Met Ball Magic


If there's one red carpet that I await with baited breathe each year, it's the Met Ball's.  It is one of the most extravagant red carpets and a nod towards fashion's finest.  After hearing that the theme of this year's exhibition is Punk: Chaos to Couture I couldn't wait to see how the celebs incorporated this theme into their dresses, as I like to think of myself as more of a punk princess than a Cinderella.  There was a real mix of styles with some going all out punk and others keeping it pretty simple.

Here are my favourites...

Model of the moment Cara Delevigne looked gorgeous in a deep v, body skimming, studded black dress by Burberry.  The studs and her dagger necklace add the perfect amount of punk.
Also wearing Burberry on the red carpet was Sienna Miller, who I've never looked toward style wise, but I actually love the look of her white floor length gown with a heavily studded leather jacket and spiked hairband.
Now I know Rooney Mara's gorgeous Givenchy gown isn't exactly punk but I have to admit that I think it was actually one of my favourites of the night.  To say the theme was punk I expected Rooney to channel a touch of her character Lisbeth of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, so was a little surprised to see her head to toe in delicate white lace.  The detailing of this dress is too beautiful not to love though and I suppose she did add a touch of punk with her dark lips.

Again, not really punk, but I love Nicole Richie repping the high street at the Met Ball in this gorgeous Topshop Couture dress.  Not really sure about the hair though, I find it more horror than punk.
And finally, not exactly the best dressed, but kudos to Madonna to actually dressing for the theme who went all out in ripped netting, tartan, studs and chains...
Who do you think was best dressed on the red carpet of the Met Ball?
