PUNK: From Chaos to Couture - Fashion at the Met Gala 2013

The stars wore their best garb for fashion's biggest night - The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala. The theme? PUNK: From Chaos to Couture. Some celebs went all-out punk, while others seemed to have missed the memo. And some style savvy celebs were able to incorporate the punk style without making their red carpet wear look like a costume. 

Here's a look at the best (and worst) looks from the Met Gala 2013. 

Best Dressed: Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles, custom Philip Treacy and Christian Louboutins
SJP made punk look pretty by wearing a beautiful printed gown by Giles and a chic chignon. To "punk" up the look, she added a custom-made mohawk headpiece by Philip Treacy and custom plaid thigh-high Christian Louboutin boots. Unlike the rest of her peers, it is clear that SJP carefully thought out her look - incorporating exquisite punk elements to what would otherwise be a beautiful, though simple, red carpet outfit.

Best all-out punk look: Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs
Miley Cyrus got the punk look down to a T. The former Disney tweener (who recently bared her assets in V Magazine) wore a body-hugging fishnet dress (thankfully, with a slip) by Marc Jacobs. Paired with spiky hair and red lips, Miley is the punk princess of the Ball.

Honourable Mention: Sienna Miller in Burberry
That white dress.  The studded jacket (LOVE). That spiked headband. The studded earrings. All these put together, along with Sienna's wavy hair = perfection.  

Most elegant: Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture
Co-host Rooney Mara looked radiant in a white lace gown by Givenchy Haute Couture. The peaked shoulders and zip front give the look some edge, as does Rooney's dark lip, bold brows and slicked back hair.

Most Disappointing: Jennifer Lawrence in Dior by Raf Simons
Though she looks beautiful (as always), this dress just doesn't do it for me. There's nothing "punk" at all..and while the veil could be considered "edgy," it just seems to throw the look back to the '40s, rather than the '70s. 

Best Hair Makeover: Anne Hathaway
I'll be honest - I was getting sick of Anne's cropped cut, so when I saw this peroxide blond, I instantly fell in love. The 'do perfectly complements her vintage Valentino gown (circa 1992!)

Worst Hair Makeover: Nicole Richie
At first glance, I thought this was Jay Manuel. I give kudos to Nicole for braving this look, but it just ages her. The custom Topshop gown though, is quite nice. 

Best cut-outs: Emma Watson in Prabal Gurung and Miranda Kerr in Michael Kors
Miss Emma Watson is really trying to prove she's all grown-up, and this Prabal Gurung gown works for her. I love the high-low hemline and train at the back, and those pointed pumps finish off the look perfectly. 

Miranda Kerr shows of her slim (...but maybe too slim) figure in a cutout Michael Kors gown. Her beauty look is on point, especially that berry-coloured lip.

Best effort: Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein
The dress is stunning, and that pompadour hairstyle is great...but it just isn't Katie. A+ for effort though.

Hottest: Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello
Anja made a huge statement at last year's Met Ball with her uber-high slit dress. I love how this look is not as overtly sexy, but still makes the model look uber hot. She also wins for best hair.

Worst Dressed: Kim Kardashian in Givenchy
Kim finally made her way into the Met Ball after being banned last year...and she must have been in her glory. Her outfit, however, was a disaster. This floral Givenchy gown (with gloves...may I add) looked hideous on her pregnant figure. Seriously...who is her maternity stylist? S/he needs to be fired, stat! 

Worst Dressed: Beyonce in custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci
Bey arrived fashionably late (of course) to the Ball wearing this flame motif gown by Givenchy. Everything about this is wrong - from the matching boots to the spiked gloves, and that studded belt. Bey looks on fire -- but in the worst possible way.
