The 2013 Met Gala took over the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC today, with seemingly everyone in Hollywood and the fashion industry turning out for the event. This year’s theme is Punk: Chaos to Couture, and lots of stars took it as a cue to branch outside their style comfort zones for the occasion. Event co-chair Rooney Mara was among the first to arrive in a stunning Givenchy gown, and later honorary co-chair Beyoncé made her entrance in a dress from the same designer — she also had a special assistant helping her with the dress’ train the whole time!
Models such as Miranda Kerr and Jessica Hart flaunted their toned physiques in frocks that showed plenty of skin, and there were lots of shocking hair changes as well, with mentions going to a platinum blonde Anne Hathaway and light grey-haired Nicole Richie. Other ways stars got into theme include safety pin details, studs galore, hair streaks and layers of black eyeliner.
