Met Gala 2013: Best Dressed

This year’s Met Gala, as you have probably heard via social media, had a punk theme. It was Punk:Chaos to Couture. Some of the stars channeled their inner rock stars, while others just chose to look glamorous instead. While I appreciate celebrities dressing their very best at the Oscar night of Fashion, I was a bit disappointed that more of them didn’t embrace the theme. Everyone loves a theme party. Below are our choices for best dressed of the night:

Emma Watson in Prabal Gurung

So it may not be the most “punk” of them all, but man, did she own it. And that’s pretty punk.

Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci

So I think maybe I didn’t like the punk theme… here is another best dresses pick that wasn’t entirely on theme. But I couldn’t help it. Amber Heard totally stood out in the crowd in her sequined bright red dress with loose curls. She looked stunning.

Anne Hathaway in Vintage Valentino

You could hear a collective gasp in the room (figuratively) when Anne Hathaway walked in the room. The most obvious reason being her normally brunette mane was now a harsh blonde. It is rumored that she dyed it specifically for the Met Ball. What dedication. Her dress enhanced the whole look, and she looked incredible. Everyone can now forget about the Oscar dress fiasco. Kinda.

It’s Blake Lively. She can do no wrong in my eyes. Except maybe forgetting to bring Ryan Reynolds.

Taylor Swift in J Mendel

Taylor Swift is clearly taking a note from Gwyneth Paltrow’s style book. Nude side panels and all. The dress is impeccably cut and worn, but Taylor styled it too…”nice”. Yes, nice. Her hair needs to be more fierce to compliment the dress, because right now the two don’t match. But other than that, it’s a step up Taylor.

Rooney Mara in Givenchy

Hi. My name is Rooney Mara and I knocked all of you out of the water. Perfectly combining the punk theme and pure elegance, Rooney Mara wore an edgy, white Givenchy gown and stole the spotlight. The high-low hemline, hard edges, buckle detailing and dark make up was so cool I forgot about that other white dress (natch, gray hair) making headlines… that’s you Nicole Richie.
