Leave it to the fashion world to think they know EVERYTHING about anything (myself included). It was quite humorous to see what everyone’s interpretation was of “punk fashion,” however. While MOST missed the mark (and I’m talking 99%), I will say that overall, I was more pleased with the couture this year than last year. That being said, the theme this year was PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Let’s get real, ladies and gentlemen - this was your chance to dress rad and have colored hair! In fact, it’s pretty much demanded. So why most people did not do this is beyond me.
Anyway, I know present you with the best and worst. Because it’s fun to laugh at people’s interpretations of “punk.”
PS - I’m a working gal now. I don’t have all day to hunt for perfect pictures. Yes, my pictures came from Perez Hilton and Just Jared. Get over it. A girl’s gotta eat.
First, the lovelies:
Cara Delevingne (who annoys the crikies out of me) looks divine in Burberry.
Y’all knew that Chloe Sevingy was gonna look cray. Looking as punk as one can get in the Upper East Side in Proenza Schouler. Check out that bra.
Christina Ricci wearing Vivienne Westwood
Sweet baby Dakota Fanning in Rodarte. I wouldn’t say that the Mulleavy sisters know much about punk, per se. But they do like to scowl. That counts for something.
Most people had Elizabeth Banks in Versace on their worst-dressed list. I bet to differ. I love a good tuxedo jacket as a dress. Stickin’ it to the man in no pants.
I just love this girl. And mostly everything she wears. This Givenchy little number is no exception. However, I do consider it bit more 1969 love child as opposed to punk.
Here’s one of the outfits I’m torn on. Punk? HELL NO. MET-ball appropriate (with any theme)? HELL NO. Do I love it in general? Yes. For a day of flea market shopping, perhaps. Ivanka Trump in Juan Carlos Obando.
Ms. Kiki Dunst in Louis Vuitton. It’s somewhat like a mullet. Punk on top. Feathery on the bottom.
Lily Collins in Moschino. It’s really not the dress I’m crazy about, but more so the hair. Blue hair is ALWAYS punk. I’m sure Phil is proud.
It wouldn’t be a Sequins in the Daytime blog post without posting something that I know I will get made fun of. I love Mary Kate Olsen’s The Row ensemble. It’s not punk, yes, I know. But it’s amazing. We all know I love Granny Couture.
Ahh Nicole Richie. God bless her. First of all, she wears Topshop. Second of all, she looks sick. (Sick enough to make Rihanna barf). Third of all, her hair is white. I’m done.
Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier is inching towards being one of my favorites of the evening. I love nothing more than tulle.
I. Love. Solange. So I’m probably bias. Solange in Kenzo is not punk. Not at all. But she’s cool. And she looks cool. My heart couldn’t leave her out.
Ugh. Men’s fashion makes me die of boredom. I don’t even know who Zachary Pinto is wearing because suits are the worst. But again, the cat has blue hair, and I’m always ok with that.
Please don’t think I put Gwen on here just because I have an unhealthy obsession (which some people call stalking). I truly think her Maison Martin Margiela gown is not only spot-on, but the best of the night. Dare to argue?
Ok, I had quite a bit of goodies this year. For the worst - it’s a 3 way tie. Let’s take votes, shall we?
Gwyneth Paltrow in Valentino. Umm. Did she think the theme was ‘pink’ as opposed to ‘punk?’ ‘Prom,’ perhaps? Honey got the wrong memo.
Zooey Deschanel in Tommy Hilfiger. Because nothing screams ‘punk’ like yachting. And gingham.
Oh, look. It’s Madonna trying to be 14 again in Givenchy. Almost as boring as a men’s tuxedo.
