Punk at The Met Tonight?

Anna Wintour wouldn’t be caught dead in anything like the looks above, especially for tonight (maybe ever).

And even though the theme of The Met’s Costume Institute gala tonight is Punk (yes, that’s with a capital “P”) for “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” the Temple of Dendur probably won’t be rocking a lot of looks straight from Sid and Nancy’s closets. No, maybe – and it will be a stretch – some gowns from Alexander McQueen, perhaps even Vivienne Westwood. I’m sure there’ll be a safety pin or two. But as Eric Wilson reported last week in The New York Times, it’s more about the scripted and – gasp! – the sale of the outfits being shown on the Red Carpet this year, since Moda Operandi became a sponsor.

Hopefully, it won’t be Nancy’s infamous line from the movie that comes to mind after the big event….  “Boring, Sidney, boring.”

    • Thanks, B! I was really disappointed by the end results of who wore what. Thought SJP and Madge did a great job of interpreting the theme, but everyone else fell sorely short. Even Anna! If only I’d been invited….!!!!
