Topshop at Met?

2013 Met Gala, Topshop, Jaime King, Ashley Madekwe, Nicole Richie, Julianne Hough, Amongst all the Valentino, Rodarte and Gucci, there was an unexpected brand of choice.

Dressed in Topshop (couture nonetheless) were Julianne Hough, Jaime King, Jourdan Dunn, Ashley Madekwe and Nicole Richie. I would be over the moon if one of my designs was worn to the Met Gala (in a parallel universe where I design Haute Couture) but to have showcased five ensembles ... Topshop CEO, Philip Green must be pretty happy with himself.

Of course, these decisions aren't made without commercialism in mind. Topshop is planning to sell those exact gowns in NY, LA, London and online in the beginning of September. Formal season is already upon us ... is it too risky to wait until September and pick one up for $630 - $1050? (Roll in the pre-orders!)

The theme was 'punk' in celebration of the museum's exhibit 'Punk: From Chaos to Couture' and indeed interpreted in many different ways. From baroque to lace, cascades of feathers to layers of tulle, here are some of my best picks from the 2013 Met Gala.

2013 Met Gala, Anja Rubik, Blake Lively, Valentino, Cara Delevinge, Burberry
2013 Met Gala, Anne Hathaway, Valentino, Rooney Mara, Givenchy

2013 Met Gala, Sarah Jessica Parker, Phillip Treacy, Alexa Chung, Erdem, Beyonce, Givenchy

Anne Hathaway in Valentino ... Rooney Mara in Givenchy 
SJP in Phillip Treacy headpiece ... Alexa Chung in Erdem ... Beyonce in Givenchy
