Met Gala Goes Punk

I digress from my normal routine to reflect on the Met Gala that took place in NYC last night. For some of you who may not be familiar, the Met Gala may be one of the most stylish, glamorous and risque celebrity events of the year. This year's "Punk" theme brought back many middle school Avril Lavine - esque memories. Oh to be young and blue-eyeshadow in love! 

While skimming through press releases searching for my fellow sk8ter gurls, I couldn't help but notice how few celebrities stuck with the "Punk" theme. This event is in fact a costume gala, right? No doubt many of the attendees took major fashion risks, however I didn't identify their risks with the theme. Miley Cyrus was one of the few attendees who truly went all-out PUNK! Call me crazy, but she wins best dressed in my style book.

Something I really enjoy about events like the Met Gala are the crazy styles that will most likely become mainstream by next season. Although this event showcases designer duds that are much too out-there for my personal taste, many of these glamorous gowns (and pant suits - I see you Kristen Stewart) are really a preview of what styles consumers might see in stores next season! From the looks of it, more pointed stilettos and bare midriffs will be readily available in Forever 21s near you! Below are just a few of my favorite outfits Hollywood wore last night!
