The excitement and glamour of a red carpet event is always heightened by the fashion of the stunning attendees, but no red carpet is more fully dedicated to fashion than that of the MET Gala. Each year, the Costume Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art host the gala to celebrate the opening of the Institute’s newest exhibition. This year the exhibit, “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, will run from May 9th through August 11th, with the MET Gala taking place May 6th.
Designers including Alexander McQueen, Versace, Vivienne Westwood, and Riccardo Tisci will be in-focus as displays of photographs, physical garment samples, and contemporary designer pieces attempt to tell the story of how punk has left its print on the fashion world. The Costume Institute will bring to light just how much punk’s influence has played a role in fashion’s development. Punk music and displays of visual media from the punk era will intensify this exhibit experience.
In response to the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, runways during New York Fashion Week’s Fall/Winter 2013 showed a renewed interest in original punk culture. Collections from Chanel, Versace, Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Saint Laurent (among many others) produced looks with studded, chained, and grunged-up embellishments. The focus on punk has even recently manifested in fashion editorials: Vogue’s “Rebel Yell” and Fashion Gone Rogue’s “Punk Beauty”.
What will we see this year on the red carpet? It should be very interesting to see how guests interpret punk for this traditionally glamour-exclusive setting. One of the greatest sources of anticipation for the MET Gala’s red carpet is how the attendees will incorporate punk into their red carpet looks, just as I have done with The Pink Slip’s Lola Haze collection
Bonus! Tweet with me (@ThePinkSlipnNYC) during the event as guests reveal their wardrobe choices during the live-streaming of the red carpet.
Lola Haze’s Signature Romper:
Tap into your inner metallica. Lola knows rompers, so rock out in our most popular one! This soft nylon stretch mesh and silver mesh underlayer can be worn on its own or with your favorite jeans. The slits in center front and back of black mesh allow glimpses of silver and fully sexy you! Shop this look
Lola Haze Cross Hipster Panty
This sleek yet sexy and sophisticated hipster touched with a little shimmer. The cross detail adds mystery with the soft nylon stretch mesh and metallic waistband for the sexy punk in you. Shop this look.
Lola Haze Bomb Chemise
Crossing pretty and pink is what punk does best, and this look is the bomb. It’s bold, vibrant, and explosively sexy. The imported netting and elastic created an artful frame of your decolletage, gives light support, and shows a peak of flesh through its cutouts. Shop this look
Lola Haze Perfect Package Teddy
Feel like a punk rock goddess in this teddy, draping you in all the right places while showing just the right skin in this gold mesh front and peaks of stretch lace to tantalize, while minimizing your waist. Let’s not forget the snaps at the crotch and laced back. It’s the perfect package. Shop the look.
Sexy with the essence of the punk theme in each look, the Lola Haze collection still knows how to rock it. I hope you enjoy the Gala and these inspired styles.
