New York’s annual Met Ball is always a celebrity-studded style extravanganza and 2013 was no exception with A-listers including Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, Cara Delevingne, Beyonce and Kristen Stewart adopting the punk theme on the red carpet.
It’s the event no A-lister wants to miss out on and we can only imagine the fashion planning that went into every outfit with safety pins, cut-out elements and plenty of eye make-up a common punk-inspired theme adopted by the likes of Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson andRita Ora.
Experimental headwear was also on show with Sarah Jessica Parker going all out with a gold and feather headpiece that begged for high ceilings while Katy Perry opted for a Middle Ages approach and a Byzantine-style crown.
And Beyonce was back in the States after her world tour stint in the UK wearing a firery-hued Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown complete with side-split and matching thigh-high boots.
There were stylish couples aplenty with pregnant Kim Kardashian pairing up with Kanye West, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge looking loved-up and Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson barely leaving each other’s side.
