In my opinion, there was more chaos than couture at the Met Gala last night. Maybe couture isn’t obviously sononomous with punk, but some people just completely missed the mark. Very few even knew one punk song, or band for that matter! When I think punk music I think The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, Rancid, Misfits, Black Flag, and The Sex Pistols. When I think punk fashion I think flannel (you were right, SJP), mohawks, leather, studs, and an attitude like no other. Nothing mattered but the music. Last night, the fact that the Goo Goo Dolls and Avril Levigne were brought up in reference to punk made me cringe, but I digress. My best dressed this year are purely based on the interpretation of the theme. Last night wasn’t about who wore it best, it was about who wore it punk. Before I get started, here’s my vision of punk:
And now, here are the few people last night I think got it, sort of, right.
Now just a quick note on who got it wrong: Uma Thurman and Kate Upton… really? Green floor length gowns and updos? Where did you think you were going? Kim Kardashian didn’t get the memo to not wear skin tight small prints when you have curves (much less a preggo belly). Ugh. Heidi Klum got lost on the way to a white party and Kate Beckinsale was missing about 4 feet of dress.
