“For fully embracing the fact that the Met Gala is the one red carpet event where you can really go all out and not give a hoot about ending up on the dreaded ‘worst-dressed’ lists. All hail the high priestess of punk!” – Gemma Gow, Fashion News Writer
“She has given punk such a glam twist, and looks amazing! SJP is the only one who can show her knickers and still look high fashion on the red carpet.” – Victoria Adegboyega, Senior Picture Researcher
“I like Sienna’s look, it’s like punking up a wedding dress with a studded headband and badass jacket.” – Sarah Kershaw, Senior Sub Editor
“For me it was Emma Watson who stole the show last night at the Met Ball in her daring Prabal Gurung silk crepe gown, complete with thigh high slits and cut-outs. I’m glad that she broke her red-carpet run of printed minis, but it also takes guts, and a whole load of cardio, to pull off a dress with so, erm, little dress to it… Hermione who?” – Maxine Eggenberger, Junior Fashion Assistant
“It feels as though Blake’s been off the fashion radar for a little while now, but this all-guns-blazing Gucci dress says ‘I’m back and don’t forget it'”. From the pastel blue bodice, to the gothic train, this gown is just the right amount of over-the-top. Ok, so it might not totally fit in with the ‘punk’ theme, but doesn’t Blake look incredible?” – Hannah Gale, Online Fashion And Beauty Assistant
“The 30-year-old Les Miserables actress dramatically plunged for a new blonde hair ‘do at the Met Gala. A huge contrast to her standard brunette crop, she fully embraced this year’s punk theme in a black floor sweeper with scratch effect print and feather cuffs to boot! Anne commented that her new hair and off beat vintage Valentino get up was inspired by the one and only Debbie Harry. Love.” Lucy Wood, Senior Fashion News Editor
“Alexa Chung in Erdem was my look of the night. Hard to work the punk theme without looking like you’ve raided a fancy dress shop, Alexa’s simple side-swept hair and low-key make-up meant her sexy, sheer mesh of a dress was a fashion winner.” – Erica Davies, Acting Senior Fashion & Beauty Editor
“Because her hair stuck to the punk brief and still look amazing rather than crazy. Plus her make-up looked flawless.” – Susie Verrill, Onlien Assistant
“Rooney Mara in white Givenchy – a lesson in how to wear white and do sheer the sophisticated way. Love the statement shoulders, too.” – Claire Hearn, Deputy Chief Sub Editor
“Dakota Fanning is an expert at looking incredible in seemingly simply outfits and she did it again last night at the Met Ball 2013 in a black sheer-panelled geometric gown by Rodarte. I especially love the plunging neckline and angel wing detailing on the back, which made her LBD a little bit more WOW.” – Lauren, O’Callaghan
“I’m just glad to see gwynnie showing off that body in something other than a monochrome palette. Ok, so it’s not quite that sheer Iron Man 3 dress that’s had us all talking recently, but it’s definitely caught my attention for all the right reasons.” – Hannah Gale, Online Fashion And Beauty Assistant
