From Donna Karan, D&G, Balenciaga to Givenchy, this years red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala was truly an homage to 5th Avenue’s unconventional side! And what a side that was! The annual ball that celebrates the opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute was definitely the ‘A’ ticket of the night! Celebrities stepped away from the more demure looks seen at the Academy Awards and gave a nice lively boost of ‘mythical punk’ in their chosen eye catching designer gowns. It was definitely a night showing how art meets fashion.
Los Angeles Fashion PR Firm, P3R client’s, celebrity hair stylist Claudio Lazo (owner of C The Salon in Studio City, CA) said Emmy Rossum looked stunning in an antique laced styled by Givenchy. Of the actresses hair he says, “I loved what Emmy did with her hair! She is right on trend with her multiple braids twisted and pinned into an amazing up do. The texture of the hair piled on top is what we’re going to see a lot of this coming season. It’s romantic and edged with just enough futuristic punk”
Some of P3R’s favorites were Nicole Richie, Katie Holmes (looking as classic as an Audrey Hepburn scene out of a movie), Sofia Vergara, Linda Evangelista (seemingly bringing to life what Ms. Haversham of “Great Expectations” must have looked like as a young beautiful bride to be……but with a gothic aire) Julianne Hough, punk pixie Miley Cyrus and the hostess herself, Lady “B” for Beyonce! What a nite to have been out to see and be “scene”……as in being a work of living art within the historic walls of the Met!
