On monday, May 6h, the annual Costume Institute Gala, also known as MET Ball, took place in New York. 
The MET Ball is a gala that celebrates the opening of the fashion exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The dress code of this year was 'PUNK: Chaos to Couture' (a.k.a. a lot of black, leather and studs). Of course Vivienne Westwood was present to, how punk is that, support WikiLeaks soldier Bradley Manning. She explained: 'When I did punk years ago, it was all about the same thing: justice and trying to have a better world.'
The exhibition is a tribute to and an overview of the term 'punk' both fashion and music, as the era and the political statements.
'No other movement has had so much influence on fashion.' - Andrew Bolton (curator)

Here's my best dressed list:
Rooney Mara looked angelic in a white lace Givenchy Couture gown of the fall 2010 collection.

I love that Hailee Steinfeld kept true to her style with this tea-length Donna Karan Atelier gown. Nice detail: the golden starbursts are made of safety pins. Amazing!

Gwen Stefani and punk are a match made in heaven. She looked stunning in an custom made Maison Martin Margiela design. The monochrome gown which includes an asymmetrical bodice was inspired by a look of the spring 2013 collection.

Anne Hathaway looked stunning in this vintage Valentino Couture embellished gown with feathered cuffs.

Emma Watson in a cutom made Prabal Gurung gown inspired by the fall 2013 collection. She looks very confident in her black silk crepe satin gown with cut-outs and a thigh-high slit.

Cameron Diaz is wearing this beautiful custom made electric blue gown by Stella McCartney which features a cape with open back and a gold spiked belt.

Elle Fanning made quite a statement in this psychedelic tie-dye Rodarte gown. The striking eyeshadow kept her youthful spirit.

It surprised me that on a huge event where it's all about punk, there were just three people wearing Vivienne Westwood (including mrs. Punk herself). Thumbs up for Christina Ricci for wearing this tartan ball gown.

Does Kate Bosworth ever something wrong? She looks radiant in this fully embellished hot pink Balmain dress with gold belt.

Sienna Miller was wearing a white gown with a gold-studded cropped leather jacket by Burberry. She accessorised her look with a spiked headband (and of course her handsome fiance Tom Sturridge).

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked impeccable in her black-and-gold Gucci gown of the fall 2013 collection which includes a netted tulle top with metallic degrade embroidery and a satin skirt.

As the face of Givenchy's new frangrance there was no doubt of Amanda Seyfried wearing the brand. The dramatic printed gown with draped back is a vintage copy of the spring 2007 couture collection.

Blake Lively opted to wear a dramatic gown by Gucci Premiere which features a pale green bodice, a skirt with layers of black organza and feather motif embroidered details. 

Miley Cyrus fully embraced the theme in her long-sleeved black mesh gown with a nude underdress from the Marc Jacobs fall 2013 collection.

You can trust Paloma Faith for some high dose of glamour at the MET Ball. She did, with this fully embellished blood red, ombre-effect Michael Cinco gown featuring built-in gloves and an open back. The headpiece by Philip Treacy was the icing on the cake.

Allison Williams looked perfect in her sexy long-sleeved black Altuzarra gown with a sheer skirt and lace panels.

 Anne Hathaway wasn't the only one who underwent a transformation, so did Nicole Richie. She wore a white fully embroidered gown by Topshop.

Florence Welch looked fierce as always in this black fringe gown by Givenchy Couture of the fall 2012 collection.

Sarah Jessica Parker made a great entrance at the MET Ball in a paint-splattered Giles gown of the fall 2013 collection. To finish the look she wore a custom made Philip Treacy headpiece and over-the-knee velvet tartan boots by Christian Louboutin.

I always like Leelee Sobieski's minimal approach on dressing. For this occasion she opted to wear a white strapless bustier gown with a black t-shirt and long sheer sleeves with gold embroidery by Christian Dior Couture.

Who was your best dressed of the evening?
