With my absolute favorite fashion event of the year coming up in exactly one week, this seemed like perfect timing to talk about the best Met Ball red carpet looks of all time. Because I can’t wait another week for a red carpet post, here it goes…
Predicting who will win what is just not where it’s at anymore — it’s who will WEAR what that’s right now (or really just what I care about). Although I did have a little fun with who might win the CFDA Awards (we’ll get the results in exactly one month from today), it’s almost that time of year again — what most fashion folks would say is the BEST time of the year (because it is) — the Met Ball is just around the corner.
We’ve discussed the not so punk and the almost punk from last night’s Met Gala…but what about the punkest of them all? These ladies BROUGHT IT. Not saying they all should have (I’m talking to you, Madonna) but I appreciate the effort.
For the last and final Met Gala post of 2013…

Now let’s talk about those who missed the punk memo. I’m not saying you have to show up in a mohawk, a nose ring and everything with safety pins but you can at least acknowledge the theme. But maybe these people are so punk, they’re not going to dress punk for the punk event. Ever think of that?
