hailee steinfeld in donna karan 
ok, not punk, but she's 16 & adorable. 

madonna in givenchy
yes, a bit of a hot mess but i love that she went there & it actually kind of works.

massimo ferretti & rosella jardini
this is how you do it!

paloma faith in michael cinco 

i was surprised that i liked as much as i did.....those that "got it" got it & some who knew not to go there didn't (and rightly so)

the good-ish
rooney mara in givenchy with riccardo tisci
i like it, i think i just expected more from them.

julie macklowe in zang toi 
i went back & forth with this look between good & good-ish.  i still can't fully decide.

gwen stefani in maison martin margiela
i actually love this but i expected more for the theme & the event from them both.

nicole ritchie in topshop
i just can't with the fake tan.

giovanna bataglia in dolce & gabbana alta moda.
another one who is always pretty flawless.

liya kebede in alberta ferretti
yup, i am actually putting alberta ferretti on the best list for a punk event!  but, it kind of works, no?

christina ricci in vivienne westwood
a bit predictable & the hair is a no but at least she tried.

hilary rhoda in wes gordon

jessica biel in giambattista valli 
another one i wasn't sure about including....this angle isn't great but it actually works in most pics.

carolyn murphy in nina ricci 

alexa chung in erdem

joan smalls in tom ford

karen elson in julien macdonald

karolina kurkova in mary katrantzou 

kerry washington in vera wang 

miranda kerr in michael kors 

nina dobrev in monique lhuiller 

sienna miller in burberry

cara delevigne

jenna lyons

ashley olsen in vintage christian dior 

mary-kate olsen in vintage chanel dress & balmain coat.

so, at least these guys tried - they may not have embraced the theme fully but they still look great.
and yes, i love ashley & mary-kate even though they are boho grey gardens!

the boring:
anna wintour in chanel haute couture
i guess i really didn't expect her to remotely embrace the theme.

karlie kloss in louis vuitton
a major disappointment for me - i expected so much more.

solange knowles in kenzo
another major disappointment - i always love her & i don't think she looks bad....just could have done so much more for the night.

florence welch in givenchy haute couture

bella heathcote in chanel couture

bella heathcote
while the dress is a snooze i love her hair & make-up.

kate bosworth in balmain
a misstep for her i think in clothing, shoes & hair & make-up.

marion cotillard in christian dior
i know she's the face of dior & i like the dress....just not at all right for the event.

michelle williams in saint laurent

minka kelly in carolina herrera 

chloe sevigny in proenza schouler

cameron diaz in custom stella mccartney

taylor swift in j mendel
she looks like a mom trying to be hip.

greta gerwig in saint laurent
this collection was definitely not "punk".

jessica paré in jason wu

the bad:
beyoncé in givenchy
just no.

kim kardashian & kanye west in givenchy

heidi klum in marchesa
was she supposed to go to a wedding afterwards?

lauren santo domingo in dolce & gabbana
this does absolutely nothing for her.

ivanka trump in juan carlos obando
she looks a bit like tommy hilfiger's version of a pirate wench.

katie holmes in calvin klein
just so wrong on her.

ashley greene in marchesa

ginnifer goodwin in tory birch

blake lively in gucci

julianne moore in balenciaga
why, julianne, why?  i love you so much but, yeah, this is a definite no.

maggie gyllenhaal 
she usually dresses kind of punk-ish anyway & for this event she chose the most boring blah gown ever?

sandra lee in, wait for it, yes, she's wearing alexander mcqueen

uma thurman
a little too "poison ivy" as the mother of the bride.

kate beckinsale in alberta ferretti

dr. lisa airan
i have no words

the designers:
queen of the night, vivienne westwood

zandra rhodes
don't ever change!

donatella versace
uh, don't fuck with her.

linda evangelista in marchesa
i'm not sure if she got the memo "punk: from chaos to couture"

  1. Thanks for this .. I literally laughed at loud with your comments. Have to admit that Rossella Jardini definitively was my favorite too.
