New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume exhibition this year was appropriately titled, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The show examined punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early '70s through its continuing influence today. The show also included original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk's visual symbols. Various artists and designers put their best foot forward at the recent opening of the exhibition, decked out in their classiest punk-inspired attire. Here are some of our favorite looks from the night!
Sienna Miller stays true to the show’s theme, looking like a punk goddess in this cream colored gown and edgy motorcycle jacket both designed by Burberry. However, her beauty additions are what really made the outfit stand out. Her spiky headband and tousled hair styled by Oscar Blandi and her spiked out nails by Deborah Lippmann are definitely a rocker chic’s dream.
Carey Mulligan exudes elegance in this chic black cut-out Balenciaga dress adorned with a large gold safety pin at the collar. She swoops her pixie across her forehead and tops the look off with a smoky eye.
No one can pull off a jumpsuit better than Kristen Stewart. She stunned audiences in her body-hugging black Zuhair Murad jumpsuit at the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Now, she’s doing it again in a maroon Stella McCartney jumpsuit with lace details. Stewart’s smoky maroon eye adds depth to the look.
Gwenyth Paltrow proves that pink is the new punk by stepping out in this bright Valentino haute couture gown with an inset of nude tulle around her shoulders.
Cameron Diaz nailed it in this stunning purple Stella McCartney gown with matching floor length, backless cape. Not to mention the gold spiked belt adds a unique charm and final touch to her look.
