DIVO Red Carpet Style: The Met Gala ‘13

The most-awaited event on the fashion calendar, the Met Gala marks the opening of the fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. All eyes, however, are on the celebrities that descend to the venue in all their finery.

This year, the theme for the Gala was ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’.

Everyone from Madonna to Kristen Stewart made an appearance, many of them with various kinds of studs and spikes as embellishments. While few went all out with hairstyles like Sarah Jessica Parker, others such as Mary Kate Olsen subtly incorporated the theme with braids and textures.

We loved Anne Hathaway’s new platinum blonde hair, which she styled with a deep side partition and lots of structure. Also making a similar statement was Gwen Stefani, who side parted her hair in the front and left one side open while pulling back the rest. Speaking of hair colour, what do you think of Nicole Richie’s silver locks?

Doing the red carpet updo was Emmy Rossum of the TV series Shameless, using braids and twists add character to the front-and-center bun. Mary Kate Olsen and Taylor Swift also went the understated punk way, one with braids and waves and the latter with a bit of crimping and texture.

On the other hand, we love the all-out punk vibe that Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj went for. Cyrus styled her short hair into numerous stiff spikes, while singer Nicki Minaj opted for volume by styling each strand into the tiniest of curls. Even JLo embraced punk with an exaggerated pompadour.

Some celebs used accessories to make statements with their hair. We’re referring, of course, to Sarah Jessica Parker first and foremost. Her Mohican headpiece by milliner Philip Treacy created quite a buzz – do you like it or do you think she took it too far?

Katy Perry also accessorized her super curly hair with a golden crown (way to make a statement!) that was quite the cherry on top to her embellished dress. Actress Sienna Miller also perfected the theme with her spiked headband that held all her hair to one side.

So these were just a few of the celebrities that we think took the more outrageous road to punk, but the Met Gala is always the best melting pot of all kinds of personal style. Can’t wait for next year!
