The Met Gala is a glamorous arena for high fashion; the event of the season, the Oscars of fashion. With the theme noted as "Punk: Chaos to Couture" we expected nothing but chain-wearing, lip-piercing, eye-lining counterculture movements of the seventies and eighties. Even the evening's hair and make-up featured a predominance of punk touches.
As stated by the Met curator, Andrew Bolton, "Fashion is to provoke, to confront, to react."
Here are our top 10 looks of the night...
