The annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala is arguably the biggest fashion event of the year, and this time around, the fête honored the opening of the PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibition with a punk-themed party. “Warm Bodies” actress TERESA PALMER hit the red carpet in a dress to match, which was custom-designed for her by Diane von Furstenberg.

Although the plunging neck gown and dazzling diamonds were much more on the glamorous side, the Australian beauty didn’t hold back when it came to her makeup and hair.

TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist JOHN D. gave Teresa’s long golden mane a mussed appearance before sharply braiding one side. It was a cool faux attempt at the trendy-yet-edgy half-shaved head look, which instantly gave her locks a toughened up twist. As for her makeup, JO BAKER gave Teresa bold “bad gal brows” that were complimented by a dewy complexion and glossy taupe lips.

If you’re digging this look, then you’re in luck. Teresa’s glam team gave The Fashion Court the scoop on how to recreate it. | continue reading..

WHO: Julianne Moore
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Balenciaga by Alexander Wang

MY VERDICT: Julianne was the guest of designer Alexander Wang at the MET ball this year and, obviously, opted to debut something from his first collection as the new Creative Director of Balenciaga. The “Carrie” actress arrived on the red carpet wearing a custom dark green gown version of a black halterneck peplum cocktail dress seen during Wang’s presentation several weeks ago. I think the dress is pretty, but not only is it not punk—it widens Julianne’s figure. In fact, it was kind of an awkward fit for her from start to finish. That being said, I thought her green statement bracelets on both wrists were gorgeous.

Julianne finished off with a cool sky-high sculpted ponytail and a pair of suede pumps to match her dress.

For this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala–hosted by Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, Moda Operandi creative director Lauren Santo Domingo, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour–guests were asked to dress in their punk best in celebration of the opening of the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition.

Heads quickly turned with KRISTEN STEWART emerged onto the red carpet wearing a bold bordeaux jumpsuit by Stella McCartney that instantly set her apart from the other glamorously punkified attendees.

With every public appearance from the 23-year-old actress comes a makeup palette and hairstyle on-lookers immediately crave. Kristen worked with her mane man ADIR ABERGEL and one of her go-to makeup artists BEAU NELSON to ensure a solid punk look. The Fashion Court got the low-down on all of the details for you to try your hand at “punk beauty”–Kristen Stewart style! | continue reading..

Kerry Washington in Vera Wang | Met Gala 2013

WHO: Kerry Washington
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Vera Wang dress, Christian Louboutin shoes

MY VERDICT: It was so hard for ladies to find a balance between “chaos” and “couture” at the MET gala this year, but I believe Kerry Washington was one of the few who made a great attempt. The “Scandal” actress looked absolutely stunning when she arrived on the red carpet wearing a custom-made violet floral and laser lace peplum gown by Vera Wang, which featured a black fishnet inset within the deep v-neckline and a matching tulle train. The dress alone had a dark glamour vibe that was only enhanced by Kerry’s daring long leather gloves.

This was certainly something new for Kerry, but I’ve never gotten the impression that she wasn’t willing to test new fashion waters. | continue reading..

WHO: Katie Holmes
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Calvin Klein Collection

MY VERDICT: I’m not sure where the “punk” was in all of this, but Katie Holmes was a guest at this year’s New York City MET Ball where she hit the red carpet wearing this custom-made white halterneck Calvin Klein Collection gown. Now, judging by her gushing during the live stream interview of the red carpet arrivals, Katie obviously loves the gown Creative Director Francisco Costa designed for her—and with good reason, it’s a beautiful dress.

Considering the dramatic trans and solid canvas, I think Katie could have done more to stick with the PUNK: Chaos To Couture theme, but–like many, she stuck by intense smoky eyes with nude lips, twisted hair, and dagger shaped diamond earrings.

WHO: Kate Bosworth
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Balmain Atelier dress, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes

MY VERDICT: It seemed like Kate was paying homage to Jem and the Holograms rather than punk when she hit the MET Gala red carpet in a hot pink Balmain Atelier gentili lurex jacquard body-con mini dress. Don’t get me wrong–I love Jem and I think the “Black Rock” actress, who was the guest of designer Olivier Rousteing, look really cool in the dress. In fact, the style is inspired by the Fall 2013 collection that just so happens to be one of my favorite lines this season. | continue reading..

Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior Couture | Met Gala 2013

WHO: Marion Cotillard
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on May 6, 2013.
WEARING: Head-to-toe Christian Dior Haute Couture

MY VERDICT: Hmm, I wasn’t expecting this. I didn’t think Marion would stick to the “punk” theme too closely, but I didn’t think she would ignore it completely. I think I may have psyched myself up with my wish list picks because a soft pastel strapless asymmetric cocktail dress was a major let-down. It’s funny because, on a normal day, I would probably love this Dior Haute Couture light pink, coral and yellow silk and tulle bustier cocktail dress on her. This just wasn’t the time nor place.

Marion tried to do something with her edgy by having it styled in angled bouncy curls. She finished off her look with red nails, soft makeup, a white clutch and a pair of houndstooth ankle strap pumps—both also by Dior.

Yep, no punk in sight. I dig her rose gold earrings though.
