WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – PUNK: Chaos to Couture on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Chanel Haute Couture on Anna; Dior Haute Couture on Bee
MY VERDICT: As the host of the biggest fashion event of the year, Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour was one of the first people to arrive on the red carpet for the PUNK: Chaos to Couture themed gala honoring the new punk exhibition for the museum.
She wore a Chanel bright floral sequin embroidered gown and it looked really nice on her, but I mean, what is punk about that? Don’t answer, because: uhh–nothing. I can’t say that I was shocked that she didn’t stick to the theme of her own party, but this Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture dress was as far from punk as you can get. Was that the point?
Anna’s daughter Bee Shaffer also skipped the “punk” part and went straight to couture. Bee wore a pretty Christian Dior pale pink embroidered silk bustier evening gown from the Spring 2013 Haute Couture line. This look was completed with smoky eyes and a smooth chignon. Oh, but her nails are black. I stand corrected.
