WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – PUNK: Chaos to Couture on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Donna Karan Atelier dress, Jimmy Choo shoes & bag, and Eddie Borgo jewelry.
MY VERDICT: Hailee was such a punk rock princess at the MET ball this year! The 16-year-old “Romeo and Juliet” actress took a brighter turn with the theme by wearing a pretty one-of-a-kind bone leather corseted dress by Donna Karan Atelier, which featured a crinoline underskirt. The classic tea length design was toughened up with all over sparks of oxidized antique gold safety pins and studs. This was a completely unique way to incorporate one of punks most famous fashion embellishments and have it suit Hailee’s usual ladylike approach to evening wear.
It wasn’t overwhelming, it didn’t stray from the theme, and obviously–it looked great on Hailee. | continue reading..
