Studs, Spikes and Safety Pins. 20 Celebs That Rocked The Punk Look At The 2013 Met Gala.

2013 Met Gala Red Carpet Couture

Now, that I’ve shared with you a post about the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture“, I thought it would be fun to see which celebrities and models rocked the punk look for the opening night gala at the Met.

The Punk Look At The 2013 Met Gala

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:
