hawt happenings: met gala 2013

Met Gala 2013, Punk: Chaos to Couture by Paul Reid Johnson Calderon

as a former punk (and a punk to this day at soul), i found this year’s Met Gala to be quite the dyadic parade.  on the one hand, you had the true punk visionaries like, Vivienne Westwood; who pioneered the music/fashion/political power force that was to become known as the Punk Rock Movement.  that said, on the other hand, you had fashion elitism at it’s best.

from Faux PUNX to haute couture, here’s my round up of all the punks and posers:

although the Met Gala is about the farthest thing from Punk, the exhibition itself is about as punk as it gets!

fashion may have taken all of the attitude and none of the politics from Punk, but all in all, they put on a good show.  i asked newcomer model/it girl, Cait Driscoll (who was among such notables as Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicki Minaj, Ivanka Trump, Cara Delevigne, Anna Wintour, Sienna Miller, Gwen Stefani, Waffle Girls’ show pony siren Sky Ferriera, and Anja Rubik), what her favorite part of the evening was.  her response was delightful, “applauding Vivienne Westwood as she walked up the stairs. the stairs are very long, so we were applauding for a very, very long time!”

Oy! Oy! Hey, gabba gabba baby!

Anne Hathaway, NO ONE’S buying it. You need to get the hugest grip. You are about as punk as a Pimm’s Cup. And that pixie cut? BARF ME OUT. You’re NOT Mia Farrow & this is not the set of Rosemary’s baby
