The Met Gala 2013! Xx

How safe can we play it??
This was always going to be a tricky one  - 
Punk as a way to Dress for the Met Gala. 
It is after all known as 'the East Coast Oscars',
and how we can't ask anyone to throw caution to the wind,
entertain us and pass up their opportunity to look
just plain glamorous and polished.   
So who managed to put some good old proper Punk into their look?
It was always obviously going to be more about the Couture.
Madonna of course came up with the perfect mix
Punk and Couture in a Modern Way, and it was great to
see Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood and the legendary
and beautiful Debbie Harry.
So let's take a look at the Glittering NYC night: Xx

“Katie’s MET Gala makeup was a departure from her natural look.  
We took the traditional punk look of black eyes 
and white lips and modernized it by combining metallic shadow
 with black liner and lots of black mascara to create
 a winged smoked out eye, and finished the look 
with a bit of pale pink blush and a beige lip. Pretty in Punk.”
 – Genevieve Herr for Bobbi Brown
