For those of you hiding under a rock, the Met paired with Vogue Editor Anna Wintour and several other amazing CFDA board members to present “Punk: Chaos to Couture” and opened for the annual Met Gala yesterday.

Vogue had a live stream, twitter was a-tweeting and I was live tweeting my likes and dislikes of yesterdays red carpet. What? You weren’t tweeting with me? Well then go add me at @HeathyrWolfe before you start feeling guilty.
Icons of Fashion, TV and the Big Screen showed up in droves. Some fashionable, some fashionably late. Most were punk to gills as they should have been. Vivienne Westwood made a show and an amazing political plight for Bradley Manning, the soldier at the centre of the Wikileaks drama,
Madonna in Givenchy and Casadei shoes, showed some fierce punk attitude Surprisingly, Miley Cyrus was head to toe H-O-T, in a fishnet dress by Marc Jacobs,
The piece-de-resistance was Sarah Jessica Parker. She put a smile on everyone’s face with a mohawk head piece that was vintage Phillip Treacy, a Sarah Jessica Parker In Giles Deacon Dress dress and kick your ass plaid thigh-high boots.
Others were just there to share the spotlight namely our favorite resident paparazzi junkies Kimye who failed in this floral fashion flop,

Kristen Stewart who looked smashing but did nothing but smirk and eye roll on the red carpet
And January Jones who rode in on her broomstick, giving Anna Wintour a run for her money.
