Met Gala 2013.

It’s that time of year again: the fashion Oscars.

That’s right, last night saw the Metropolitan Museum of Art transformed for the Met Gala: fashion’s most prestigious event. Every designer, every model and every celebrity attended the event to honour the launch of this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Exhibition Punk: Chaos to Couture.

The event's Honorary Chair - Beyoncé in Givenchy Haute Couture

Like the post for last year’s event, here’s my rundown of the top looks from the evening.

5. Kristen Stewart in Stella McCartney
Steering clear of the traditional gown, K-Stew’s maroon pantsuit gave the punk theme a modern edge. Complimented perfectly by matching eye makeup and sleek up-do, this look was certainly a step forward for everyone’s favourite heartbreaker.

4. Sienna Miller in Burberry Prorsum
What better way to showcase punk than an overly studded leather biker thrown over a white gown? Sienna, who is rumoured to be Burberry’s latest campaign star, looked effortless at the event and finished her look with a studded hair piece.

3. Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture
As one of the hosts of the evening, Rooney Mara had to make a statement. She did. Dressed in a white, Givenchy gown, this actress certainly started a media storm. Now, a white dress may not say punk to you, but her makeup certainly shouted it: check out the plum lip.  She nailed it.

2. Kate Bosworth in Balmain
Bosworth almost made it onto my best dressed list last year in a feather, Prada mini dress. However this year she pulled out all the stops. Wearing a magenta Balmain mini dress with thick, gold waist belt, Ms. Bosworth brought punk hurtling into the 2010s.

1. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Gucci
The red carpet queen of last night has to be Brit-model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Wearing a Gucci gown, RHW looked absolutely breath-taking and undeniably sexy. However, it was an understated sexy. Despite having very little skin on show, the dress was revealing to say the least. I dare say women worldwide will now be wishing for smaller breasts!

What were your favourite looks?
Does anyone disagree with my top 5?

Let me know your thoughts! I for one think the controversial theme was a triumph. It definitely highlighted those who are a force to be reckoned within the fashion industry!
