Met Gala Marvels

On Monday night I took a little study break and watched the Vogue live stream of the Met Gala red carpet. I was trying to stay focused on studying for my finals, but I kept seeing people's tweets about what the celebs were wearing and just had to cave. I'm glad I did because I loved the punk theme. There were so many studs, spikes, feathers, rhinestones, leather accents and patterns--all of my favorite things! The hair and makeup was amazing, too. The punky and beautiful ensembles brought me back to my days of dance costumes and stage makeup, and I loved every minute. These were my faves of the night:

Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles Deacon (dress) & Phillip Treacy (headpiece)
SJP was by far my favorite. Her faux mohawk head piece really made her stand out in the crowd of punks. How Carrie Bradshaw of her!

Had to add this picture of Jennifer Lawrence and SJP because I love them both. You can also see the details of SJP's beautiful Phillip Treacy headpiece a lot better.

Anne Hathaway in Valentino
Hathaway is probably one of the last people I would think to pull off the punk look well. When Valentino offered to dress her for the gala she replied, "Have you ever done punk, darling?" But darling Anne, we could've said the same for you! But she looks beautiful and punky. What really makes the ensemble even more punk-ish is her newly blonde hair. I'm loving it!

Rooney Mara in Givenchy
When I first saw Mara I thought, "hasn't she done that look already?" And she has! She usually pulls out the all black or all white gowns and looks stunning (hello, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo London premiere). She may have gone with the same trend here, but this look is one of her best. The accentuated shoulders certainly give the Givenchy gown a punk vibe, but the dark lip is what made me do a double take. She pulls it off so well!

Cara Delevingne in Burberry
The spikes on the entire top of Delevingne's gown truly make this a punk look, but the plunging V-neckline and long necklaces make the look more dramatic and red carpet worthy. Her hair was also fabulous. She nailed the whole distressed, punk "I don't care what my hair looks like" look, and the side french braid pulled it all together.

All the Met Gala guests looked beautiful. It was hard to narrow the list down to just four!
