How To: Punk It Up Like the Stars at the Met Gala!



br12One of the biggest fashion events of the year, the Met Gala was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC yesterday evening. This event is much awaited because it’s one of those nights when the starlets can get dazzled up in show-stopping gowns that make statements with every step.

The theme of the much awaited event was Punk: Chaos to Couture and while some decided to play it safe, there were some who put the theme to good use in eye-catching ensembles.

Well, if you’d like to try experimenting with your punk side sometime, read on to find out how the celebs did the “punk thing” in simple outfits and try them out!

  • The theme of the night was just so perfect for the Punk Princess of Hollywood, Miley Cyrus! Though she wore a plain March Jacobs mesh gown which would have looked elegant if paired with black pumps and a braided updo, Miley gave it a dash of punk with bold rep lips and a full-on spikey do. Get a figure hugging maxi and try this look if you have got short cropped hair!
  • Though Miley gets the punk princess title, it is Madonna who’s the queen of punk and she made sure she let the world know! The singer went full-on punk wearing a Givenchy blazer complete with gloves, fishnet tights, studs and chains. A Cleopetra wig added for the perfect finishing touch while a pair of hot pink Casadei ankle-strap pumps provided a pop of color. Want to take your plain ol’ blazer for a punk spin? Take a style tip from Madonna and add some studs!
  • Next punk lesson – how do you make a sparkly gown look punk-y? Lear from Lily Collins! The actress wore a black Moschino gown with embellishment details at the top, though the gown would have looked more Oscar night appropriate, she made it look just right for the event’s theme by topping it with a fully sequined jacket.
  • Cameron Diaz did a brilliant job of making a graceful Stella McCartney gown look perfect for a punk themed night! How did she do it? She styled the plain electric-blue gown and cape combi with a statement spiked belt. If you’re not ready to embrace a whole punk look, try starting with a belt!
  • Ginnifer Godwin showed us how much effect the eye can have when she showed up in a sequined Tory Burch gown with dramatic black eyes. Styling her pixie cut in a messy, just-out-of-bed style, the actress went full black in the eyes all the way from her lash to her brows and looked stunning! Try the black eyes for a major rock-punk look!
