This theme begs the question: What is punk? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it's relating to or being a style (as of dress or hair) inspired by punk rock. A lot of people have also mentioned that to them, punk is simply rebellion, freedom, and edge, and I completely agree.
It only hit me how big of a deal the MET Ball was today while I was watching the livestream. André Leon Talley started the whole process of picking what he was going to wear in February. February. Crazy, but absolutely amazing, of course.
Cara Delevingne wearing Burberry
My jaw literally dropped when I saw her dress. The studs just made the dress so punk, yet so classy, which is quite a masterful combination when it works. Absolutely stunning.
Elle Fanning wearing Rodarte
If you read my Elle Fanning post last month, you probably know that I'm obsessed with her sense of style, so you could probably imagine how much I geeked out when she appeared on my computer screen. The standout part of her ensemble for me was her intricate ear cuff. I'm a huge fan of ear cuffs, so I was ecstatic when I saw that she was sporting one tonight.
Hailee Steinfeld wearing Donna Karen Atelier
It's definitely not what I envision when I think of punk, but I absolutely loved the gold safety pins on this cream dress. I'll probably do some kind of DIY of something similar soon, so be on the look out for that if you're interested.
Taylor Swift wearing J. Mendel
I love Taylor Swift's classic and feminine style, despite how safe she seems to play it when it comes to it. I thought that she'd be one of the few that wouldn't embrace the punk theme, so I was pretty surprised to see what she wore last night. I loved the cut-outs, but how everything was balanced out with the heaving beading up top. It's such a unique dress and I'm so happy that she stepped out of her comfort zone for the Met Ball.
Here are a few other favourites of mine from the night...
