PUNK, or something like it.

 It is that time of year again.. the fashion Olympics are here. The MET gala produces some of the biggest fashion moments every year, if not, of all time. On Sunday celebrities, models, designers and socialites descended upon the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual Costume Institute Gala. 

The MET Gala is not just about that one night of course. It marks the opening of the new exhibit that will run the course of the summer. This years exhibit is titled 'PUNK: Chaos to Couture' and highlights over a hundred looks stemming from the 1970s through to today. The exhibition celebrates where DIY meets made-to-measure, and is divided into several themes including New York and London, Clothes for Heroes, and Hardware, Bricolage, Graffiti and Agitpop, and Destroy. Those of you lucky enough to be in New York over the summer, be sure to head to the MET to take it all in. 

For the rest of us, the live stream of the gala will have to do. Of course, the gala has a theme every year, and in most cases, not many stick to it. I was so excited to see some incredible creations at this year's event and for the most part I found it very hit and miss. I did have a few favourites though.... Read on to be amazed.
