Recently this month was the opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s Fashion Exhibit in NYC. The Costume Institute kicks off the event with the Met Gala party, which is considered by some people to be the “party of the year.” The theme in 2013 for the fashion exhibit is “Punk: Chaos to Couture.”
Punk is a unique culture that is remembered well as part of the 1970’s and 1980’s. It brought forth musical groups like the Ramones, Billy Idol, and Blondie. The Punk Era was dominated by spikey hair, harsh make-up, and studded leather clothing. There were many celebrities who embraced the punk theme for this year’s gala.
Interestingly enough, many of the ladies who donned rebellious garb figured out a way to integrate some fancy but still counter mainstream dress rings – check out Anne Hathaway’s adornments below for a taste. Just goes to show you that disparate styles can be fashionably married – and what’s more punk than mixing of aesthetics? Olivia Wilde could have easily rocked this emerald and diamond gold dress ring from Swag and joined the creative party. That said, Olivia did look fantastic in that strapless, slim-fitting bone-colored gown with cut-outs in all the right places.
