Breaking down Met Ball Punk 2013: What they wore, how they wore it and who they hugged along the way

posted on: Tuesday, 7 May 2013


The biggest night in fashion has come and gone and we have all the juicy tid-bits straight from the attendees themselves. This year's Met Ball was all about Punk and the red carpet did a good job in reflecting the exhibit that had been put on inside. From Mohawks to midi dresses, celeb love-ins to major Psy moments, here's your look at the 2013 Met Ball through the eyes of Instagram...


Mohawks seemed to be the biggest hit of the night at the Punk themed 2013 Met Ball. Sarah Jessica Parker and Constance Jablonski were just two of many such hairstyles that had iPhones and paps snapping all night long. {via Bergdorfs and fashion_press Instagram}


Bergdorf's Linda Fargo and Diane von Furstenberg showed off a different side to their hair personalities on the big night, both presumably sporting wigs or hair pieces of somekind. {via NeimanMarcus and DvF Instagram}


Speaking of hair, we can't ignore the Punk platinum that made a return for this special evening. Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie, Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway all showed off some blonder than blonde locks for the big night. {via BeautySweetSpot, StellaMcCartney, MTVStyle and USWeekly Instagram}


Dresses at the Met Ball this year came in all shapes and sizes from full length to barely there. Sporting two examples of hem lines here are Gisele Bundchen in an Anthony Vaccarello mini and Katy Perry in a Dolce & Gabbana Midi. {via VogueBrasil and NeimanMarcus Instagram}



From mini to midi, let's not forget the maxi. Yes, there were plenty of full length gowns to speak of at the Met Ball this year. Kim Kardashian in Riccardo Tisci, Beyonce in Givenchy, Christina Ricci in Vivienne Westwood, Dakota and Elle Fanning in Rodarte, were just some of our favourites. {via Beyonce, KimKardashian, OfficialRodarte and BradGoreski Instagram}

David Lauren, Lauren Bush Lauren and Dylan Lauren also attended the 2013 Met Ball wearing Ralph Lauren. Honestly why would you wear anything else when you have access to the best closet in the world? {via RalphLauren Instagram}


Then there are the honourable mentions, the few that stand out from the crowd in their magnificence. These are of course Heidi Klum in Marchesa, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Elizabeth Banks in Versace, Rosie Huntington Whiteley in Gucci and Rooney Mara in Givenchy, all working it for the camera for the 2013 Met Ball. {via NeimanMarcus, Gucci, BrianAtwood and ModeOperandi Instagram}


Then of course it seemed like everyone had officially gone Psy mad as he was appearing in shots with every celebrity from Beyonce to Madonna on the big night. Herewith are just a few of his finer moments captured. {via MaryKatrantzou, Bergdorfs, LaurenBushLauren and IvankaTrump Instagram}


Then of course there were more celeb love ins captured at the 2013 Met Ball for the social world to do with what they may. Women the world over became very jealous of Hanneli as she wrapped her arm around Swedish heartthrob Alexander Skarsgard. And Taylor Swift and Chanel Iman shared a loving embrace for the camera showing off their punk contributions to fashion on the night of the big Ball.  {via Hannelim and ChanelIman Instagram}
