The Unofficial Color of Met Gala 2013: Black!



br11There can’t be enough of black dresses and the Met Gala was yet another proof of the point! Held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the theme, “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, it was not surprising that the event had a plethora of starlets clad in black.

To update you on the reigning power of black dresses, here is a list of the stars who sported the color -

  • Emily Blunt looked elegant in a black Carolina Herrera gown with a stylish keyhole cut at the front. A pair of edgy earrings helped bling up her look while a swipe of hot pink in her eyes added a punk vibe to her look.
  • Carey Mulligan radiated gorgeousness all around her when she posed in the red carpet wearing a black Balenciaga dress flaunting sexy cut-outs and an oversized gold pin at the front. A pair of t-strap black pumps and a slick hair-do completed her Met Gala look.
  • Emma Watson showcased her sultry side in a custom-made Prabal Gurung gown with revealing cut-outs and thigh-high slits. She styled the dress with t-bar pumps in the same color and Fred Leighton earrings.
  • The supermodel, Miranda Kerr also joined the black parade showcasing her enviably toned abs in a black Michael Kors cut-out gown. Her spiked Christian Louboutin clutch added a punk effect to the look.
  • Taylor Swift joined in the punk theme wearing a J. Mendel gown with lace insets and a statement-making embellished neckline. Smoky eyes and black nails completed the singer’s “lady punk” look.
  • The “It Model”, Cara Delevingne looked ready for the night in a studded Burberry gown. The plunging v-neckline added just enough sex appeal while smokey eyes, a few necklaces and some rings added even more punk vibe to her look.
  • Jennifer rocked the 50’s glamour look wearing a Christian Dior jewel-encrusted creation with equally gorgeous platform shoes. Red lips and a birdcage veil added the retro touch to her look.

Gisele Bundchen was as always, a sight to behold in a mini Anthony Vaccarello dress with chain link designs on the top and bottom. Leaving her wavy tresses loose, the stunning model teamed her dress with a pair of black heels with spike details and a black clutch.

Well, the list doesn’t stop there, even other stars like Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Nina Dobrev and Michelle Williams were fab in black for the night.
