Take a look at how islandistas did it on the red carpet at the fashion industry’s biggest event of the year – the Met Costume Insititute Gala. This year’s theme was a tricky one for many fashionistas to navigate, with its “Punk: Chaos to Couture” tribute to Dame Vivienne Westwood.
To be honest, very few got it right, opting safely to go for glamour rather than punk. Among the standouts was Sarah Jessica Parker with an awesome mohawked headpiece by Philip Treacy and a fab gown by Giles Deacon.
Madonna also got it right (of course) since she’s 1)bold enough to eschew glamour in favour of committing to the theme and 2) old enough to have been there when punk was in the first time enough. (It’s true!)
