Red carpet: Several stars skip punk in favor of pretty at the Met Gala


Although the exhibit may be called Punk: Chaos to Couture, there were quite a few celebs at Monday night’s Met Gala who circumvented the chaos and went straight for couture. Gwyneth Paltrow was probably one of the event’s biggest offenders in this bubblegum pink Valentino gown with nude inset. Wilfredo Rosado earrings completed her sweet look. Blake Lively certainly represented the Gucci Première brand well in a light green strapless gown with black organza skirt accented by an embellished feather pattern at the waist. A pair of Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings polished off the stunning look. It was a marvelous Marchesa Fall 2013 white embellished gown for Heidi Klum on the red carpet. Harry Winston gems and Jimmy Choo shoes served as accessories.


Calvin Klein designed the rather ethereal ivory halter gown Katie Holmes wore to the gala. The actress also relied on Lorraine Schwartz jewels to finish off her look. Model Kate Upton arrived in an emerald Diane von Furstenberg draped gown. The designer’s gold clutch rounded out the look. Zac Posen was behind Uma Thurman‘s dramatic green gown with cascading train. She did make a bit of a rebellious statement, though courtesy of that Efva Attling Funky Ring.

Despite the fact that these stars shunned the night’s established theme, we’re still impressed with the glamorous nature of their real show-stopping gowns. After all, isn’t going against the establishment what punk’s all about?
