Where were all the punks at the Met Costume Institute Gala Benefit?

1

In New York last night, The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted its annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit. The theme celebrated the museum’s upcoming exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” which opens to the public on May 9. As a result, the attending celebrities — everyone from supermodel Gisele Bündchen to pop star Madonna, actress Anne Hathaway, and the unofficial queen of punk herself designer Vivienne Westwood — took a stab at interpreting the rebellious, anti-establishment movement through their own gala-fashion choices. There were faux-hawks, studded stilettos and even a few safety pins (see: Giovanna Battaglia’s up-do), but as a whole the trends swayed more toward a tame goth look than true, gritty punk. Herewith, a sampling of the rather outrageous style statements made on the red carpet — the good, bad, and the sort-of punk. —Christina Geyer
