Posted Monday May 6, 2013 8:01 PM GMT
It's considered the Oscars of the style world, and at tonight's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala (May 6), the fashionably elite made their biggest sartorial statements of the year.
With the focus of 2013's exhibit being "Punk: From Chaos to Couture,” celebrity attendees kicked their typical red carpet looks to the curb, only to show off their rebellious side. Basically, the normally stuffy soiree got a rather unruly makeover.
Of the several A-listers taking part in fashion's biggest night, we nailed down five fierce looks that had us rockin' and wantin' more. Read through the list below to see favorite frocks of the 2013 MET Gala.
Rooney Mara: Talk about starting the event off right! As co-chair of this year's fete, Mara took it upon herself to set the fashion bar high. Clad in a lacey, low-cut Givenchy gown featuring zipper embellishments and white heels, the actress kicked her look up a notch with pale foundation and a dark, berry lip.
Taylor Swift: She might be America's country sweetheart, but tonight, Taylor was nothing short of a punk-inspired princess. The 23-year-old superstar kept in theme — sans smile — as she posed in a full-length black and gold cutout J. Mendel dress. Can you say perfection?
Kate Bosworth: Channeling her inner rebel, Bosworth opted for a pink beaded Balmain mini that was sure to cause a saucy sartorial ruckus. The star finished off her rockin' ensemble with a fierce gold waistbelt.
Jessica Alba: Having worn Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren in years past, the brunette stunner turned up in a blue Tory Burch frock with leather embellishments for 2013's big night. Complete with a high bun, and fierce leather clutch, Alba's cutout dress was the perfect interpretation of punk chaos meets couture fashion.
Beyoncé : Honorary chair of the night's event, Bey did not disappoint in a flame-ridden, off-the-shoulder Givenchy gown with gloves and leather belt. Hey, she's not called Queen B for nothing, right?
