On May 6th, 2013, the Costume Institute Ball—known informally as the Met Gala—celebrated the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit. This important social event, held yearly in New York since 1971, rivals Hollywood’s Oscars but with less celebrities and press, and more fashion.
With a cocktail hour, formal dinner, and decadent red carpet hosted by Vogue magazine, the Met Ball’s extensive and exclusive guest list is compiled by Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour and its staffers. This year’s gala raised a whopping $113 million for the Costume Institute.
The theme, “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” brought out the inner-Sex Pistol of many different celebs, including: Miley Cyrus, Gwenyth Paltrow, Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Alba, Nicole Ritchie, performer Psy, and Beyoncé who also named Met Gala Chair.
Inspiring designers around the world, the punk theme embraced everything from lace to leather and studded jackets to platinum locks for the high-profile attendees. Some of the evenings best looks are listed in Designed by Hollywood’s Top 10 Best Dressed list below.
