While many celebrities were beautifully dressed for the event such as Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum, Uma Thurman and Emma Watson, they opted for the elegant look rather than punk. However, the following celebrities rocked the punk look at the 2013 Met gala and brought out the chains, spikes, studs, plaids, safety pins, fishnets, maltese crosses, fingerless gloves, colored hair and make-up reminiscent of the classic late 70s to early 80’s Punk movement.
Some went all out, bringing back Punk as we remember it such as Madonna in Valentino couture:
Never underdressed, Sarah Jessica Parker was a sight in a wild Giles gown, Alexander McQueen thigh-high boots and a Philip Treacy hat:
Tommy and Dee Hilfiger were completely punked out in their plaid and silver spikes:
Christina Ricci donned a plaid punk Vivienne Westwood gown but kept the elegant hair make-up and jewelry.
Giovanna Battaglia in Gabbana Alta Moda accented her updo with several gold toned safety pins:
Nicole Ritchie dyed her hair white and loaded her ear with spikes while wearing a gown by Dana Rebecca Designs.
Miley Cyrus killed it in this skin hugging gown with her fab Punk hair:
Cara Delevingne wore Burberry Prorsum, combining an elegant silhouette with Punk studs and spikes:
Wearing a wild, but not really punk, Martin Margiela black and white outfit, Gwen Stefani was accompanied by hubby Gavin Rossdale in a decidedly punk tartan plaid suit.

Designer Donatella did not disappoint in her own unusual Versace gown with spikey studded shoulder and cuff:
