"Punk: Chaos to Couture," was the theme of this year’s Costume Institute Exhibit, and kicking it off was the annual Met Gala. This year’s theme aimed "highlight the origins of the punk movement and draw direct connections to haute couture and ready-to-wear creations that it has inspired for the past three decades,".
High fashion labels were a massive hit, with labels such as Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Marchesa, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta dominating the red carpet. It was cut-outs, studs, spikes and surprisingly, lace all around.
There were some interesting takes on the punk movement, and I think Anna Wintours sums up the punk movement perfectly:
“I think (punk) is so eclectic and so original and maybe it sort of represents what’s very fearless about fashion.”

Cara isn't called the "new Kate Moss" for nothing. Her spike studded gown fitted her willowy figure like a glove. She dazzled in the plunging black gown paying homage to the punk theme.

Miley Cyrus resembled a fishnet in her mesh Marc Jacobs dress. Her hair certainly held edge, but that was the punkiest thing about her look.
I did find some great DIY inspiration from the Met Gala though - I'll be attempting some of these soon!
