This week, the annual fund-raising ball for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art was all about “PUNK: Chaos to Couture.” Celebrity attendees certainly wore some creative theme interpretations! Nevertheless it gives us (as women who need evening wear of a slightly more sedate variety) some of our own creative ideas for the all-too-rare red carpet event:
I give you Taylor Swift in J.Mendel, as seen on Huffington Post:
Can’t you picture this dress as evening wear for a Sapphire by using a similar jeweled collar, with extended jeweled shoulder lines, on a simple sheath dress? Perfection!
And this Tory Burch dress worn by Ginnifer Goodwin, also from the Huffington Post site, would look wonderful worn by an Emerald.
And for anyone else, both looks would benefit from more standard evening makeup applications.
You can find many more ideas to crib from this year’s Met Gala just by searching on 2013 Met Gala.
