Because of the crazy array of fashion on the red carpet, I chose to split my selections into 3 categories:
- Best Punk - best interpretation of the theme while still looking good
- Best Dressed - favourite outfits in general whether meeting the theme or not
- Worst Dressed - because those are always fun
|Sienna Miller, Nina Dobrev, Nicole Richie, Cara Delevingne, Emmy Rossum|
Best Punk: To me each and everyone of these ladies went punk, but managed to stay elegant. Lots of soft and hard in the fabrics and textures. Lots of WILD and big hair - I mean, Nicole even spray painted her hair silver - that's commitment! I thought these were very on-point with the theme.
|Jessica Alba, Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt, Cameron Diaz, Katie Holmes|
|Elle Fanning, Joely Richardson, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Madonna|
Worst Dressed: I would like to think that my reasoning for selecting each of these ladies as worst dressed is pretty obvious. No idea what Elle Fanning is doing with herself. Her tie-dye gown and makeup are more strange than punk to me. Joley Richardson is wearing a beautiful colour, in what looks to be a beautiful fabric, but those hips? Just distracting and unnecessary. Katy Perry... um, just didn't work for me. Beyonce is strange with her matching boots and gloves in that busy pattern. Just not flattering or beautiful. Last but not least, Madonna. Her look is 100% punk and she would win "Best Punk Costume" but it is still a Ball/Gala and it is still meant to be formal so she's just off the mark on this one.
I should also mention that there are WAY more than 5 for each category. It was hard to narrow these down. Last night was impressive! What did you think?
The Anna Mystery: with the theme of Punk and with the below cover of New York Magazine, I've got to say I was a little underwhelmed (surprised maybe?) with what Anna showed up wearing...
