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.
Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello ... Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere ... Cara Delevinge in Burberry
Anne Hathaway in Valentino ... Rooney Mara in Givenchy
SJP in Phillip Treacy headpiece ... Alexa Chung in Erdem ... Beyonce in Givenchy
