A lot happened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala last night. The exhibit’s "Punk: Chaos to Couture" theme inspired starlets, songstresses and socialites, to really go for it and sport daring get-ups and beauty looks. Oh, and as expected, Kim Kardashian indeed graced the red carpet with her presence in a custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci floral thing that has quickly spawned it’s own "Bitch stole my look!" moment with a sofa. (Social media is fun.) But more than anything, attendees expressed their inner punkdom through crazy hairstyles that ranged from brilliantly bold to major mistakes. Let’s revisit these looks, shall we? Starting with tamest (when Anne Hathaway going blonde is tame, things must be getting wild) to zaniest.
Always a risk-taker (I’m still defending her Golden Globes dress), Sienna Miller turned up with an expertly-executed comb-over bound by a side spike headband. She paired the look with an equally eye-catching Genevieve Jones’ Teague Ear Cuff in 18K White Gold with Diamond Pave.
Katy Perry continued her Dolce & Gabbana love affair with a hyper-embellished dress and straight-up crown pairing. Oh, hey Kate Upton, is that you trying to photobomb?
Ahh! Miley Cyrus didn’t hold anything back with this hair-raising ‘do, which was big F**K You to all the haters who still don’t understand why she’s going for a look that’s a cross between Susan Powter and Guy Fieri. (Do you see it?)
Nicole Richie dyed her hair grey for the occasion, and it somehow made sense. People have been comparing her to Albert Einsten, which is a pretty lazy observation, if you ask me. She did it way better than Lady Gaga did that one time.
Last but not least, I’ll leave you with Sarah Jessica Parker, who wore a costume mohawk by famed milliner Philip Treacy. This proves that SJP will never not be Carrie from Sex and the City because the fashion world continues to hang onto her every over-the-top style moment. Who knew that Hocus Pocus chick would have such a storied career?
