Punk Rock the Met

Anarchy in the U.K. in the USA

I loved this year´s Met Ball. While all art and fashion are, to a degree, punk rock – what else is the explosive urge to make something out of nothing? – this year´s “From Chaos to Couture” theme gave the event a raison d´etre that worked.

While some folks are sort of preternaturally more punk than others – Madonna has no problem donning a black bob and corset tights – it was fun to see other, more femme stars don their own version of alternative looks.

Sofia Vergara wouldn´t normally wear something this angular, and it´s interesting on her:



Sarah Jessica Parker killed it:  




Jennifer Lopez also killed it: 


Camila Belle did a fun Great Gatsby meets goth look:


And how fun are these ?




The theme gave the  Rashida Jones' dress choice a slightly punk air of “Oh, do these straps look  folksy or floppy? I must not care.” 



And ironically enough, R & B Beyonce´s body language of “I´m here” is somehow punk as it can get. Imagine her re-make of The Ramones song, ‘Sheena Is A Punk Rocker’ (now).
