Kim Kardashian, Paloma Faith

A funny thing happened on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet. No, not the thing where Beyonce paid homage to Katniss Everdeen. It was the thing where Kim Kardashian and Paloma Faith both implemented a styling choice we have no better term for at 1 AM than "glove sleeves." The rare fashion phenomenon of gloves sleeves, as you've probably already deduced, happens when a garment's sleeve does not end with a hem or a cuff and instead, extends and splinters into fingers. It's definitely a look and one that caught us by surprise tonight, especially because not one but TWO ladies sported the look down the "Punk: Chaos to Couture" step-and-repeat. And what's more punk than unabashedly wearing something almost no one understands?

After Beyonce took to the carpet, I have to say, a sigh of relief could be heard from the press lined up along either side of the red staircase at the 2013 Met Gala. With King Bey in the house, it had to be all over, didn't it? *Knowing smirk* The Met Gala may have had their king, but there was still one queen who had not arrived. I'm talking of course, about Madonna, the queen of pop incarnate. Just after Bey made her way all the way through the museum's gilded doors, the tell-tale explosion of flashbulbs and European-accented shouting bubbled up from the photo pit, and our sighs caught in our throats. Madonna had entered, wearing an all-over studded, tartan Givenchy blazer fastened over a fishnet bodysuit and very little else. Well no, that's not true. Although Madge's fantastic gams were on prominent display, there was a whole lot going on in her ensemble, including my personal favorite detail: an oversize padlock choker engraved with the letter 'M.' There were so many more things though! From the cross hanging down the back of her ensemble like a sacrilegious tail to her bright red lips and magenta pumps, there were countless details, each one elevating the ensemble to new heights of punk rock perfection.

Katy Perry Met Gala

Just when you think you've seen it all on tonight's Met Gala red carpet, Katy Perry saunters in wearing one of the most stunning ensembles of the night. She was DECKED. OUT. in an embellished Dolce & Gabbana fall/winter 2013 frock (yes, from the same collection in which we Photoshopped Beast Jesus' face on select pieces of clothing because it is hilarious/amazing/makes life worth living) with a bedazzled crown, oversized gold cross earrings, and giant gold cocktail rings. If y'all could see this dress up close, you'd DIE at the beading detail, so it's no wonder she opted for black ankle strap wedges and not much else!

Jennifer Lawrence

Sequins. In a movement marked by studs, zippers, and razors, they're not exactly the MOST punk-centric outfit embellishment we can think of. But then again, Jennifer Lawrence fully admitted on the Met Gala's vogue.com red carpet livestream tonight that "I never went through the punk phase. I guess tonight I'm supposed to say 'yes' but no. I was a cheerleader." And this honesty, Jenn, is exactly why we love you. The actress might not be a reformed punk, but she proved her star power nonetheless in a stunning strapless gown by Dior.

Rita Ora

No matter what the occasion, no matter what time of year, we can ALWAYS count on Rita Ora to turn it out on the red carpet in full fashion glory. And tonight’s Met Gala was no different, with the singer's feet firmly planted on the pretty side of the punk scale in a shimmery Thakoon dress. The all-white custom-designed number came adorned with glistening stripes and baring just a sliver of stomach (um, not to mention, a sky-high slit!), making Rita one of the few stars tonight who took a lighter approach to punk. While many attendees have been known to change up their outfit choices up to the very last second at events like these, this pop star knew what she wanted weeks ago… and stuck with that vision. According to her stylist Jason Rembert, “The look was set for a month and a half. Thakoon sent over a sketch that Rita and I fell in love with,” he explained over email. “[It] was great to have a more classic approach to the punk theme.”

Nicki Minaj

We've said it before and we'll say it again: we are so into Nicki Minaj's new look. Gone are the days of loud neon prints and so-bright-it-could-blind-you wigs. The reigning queen of Young Money recently took a turn for the real, opting for a more "relatable look" that's both dressed down and cleaned up. Nicki kept her new look on lock when she walked the red carpet tonight at the Met Gala in a sleek navy blue Tommy Hilfiger gown. Baring some side ab with an on-trend cut out design, the "High School" hip hop star added dark red lips and matching nails to off-set her fierce platinum blonde—and VERY punk—hair. Part '70s style afro, part '80s crimped curls, Nicki paid homage to the gala theme with her 'do more than her dress. We're feeling the texture almost as much as we're digging those deep dark roots. Colorists are for clowns; give dem punks a bottle of bleach and a few months of grow out and you're ready to rage.

Beyonce

Only Beyonce can pivot from the middle of her first international arena tour since becoming a mother to acting as honorary co-chair of the 2013 Met Gala (a night we affectionately refer to as "Fashion Prom") without missing a beat. More accurately, not only does King Bey take to the red carpet as if she's been doing nothing but swimming backstroke in a pool of moisturizer until the big night, she COMMANDS it. Mrs. Carter flew solo dolo for this year's Costume Institute Benefit, but who needs a date when you're dripping in seriously FUEGO Givenchy duds?

Taylor Swift 2013 Met Gala

There's nothing we love more than when celebs really stick to a theme, and at tonight's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" Met Gala, Taylor Swift ditched her typically soft and girly look for a darker, edgier ensemble. Her glam-rock J. Mendel gown featured lace cut-outs along the torso and side (um, is this seriously channeling Gwyneth Paltrow's Antonio Berardi side cleavage look from a couple weeks ago or WHAT?) paired with an out of this WORLD gold embellished collar shoulder-piece. T Swift didn't need many accessories with this show-stopping dress, so she kept it simple with a glittery cuff and matching gold and black box clutch. We only got a tiny peek at her feet, but it looks like she sported strappy black sandals and black polish. #WERK

Krsiten Stewart

Forget all the pretty studded 2013 Met Gala gowns for a second. Forget those strategically-placed cutouts and ubiquitous "I'm so punk by NOT being punk!" lines, too. Right now, let's all focus on Kristen Stewart, who decided to wear a Stella McCartney jumpsuit on the red carpet tonight, and boy, did she ROCK it. It's only fitting that the former Runaways star would pay sartorial homage to "Punk: Chaos to Couture" in true K.Stew fashion: by not smiling and wearing pants (and not surprisingly, schooling everyone on her fave punk songs...). And this time, her no-nonsense casual attitude meshed perfectly with the night's theme.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

KIMYE ALERT. As soon as Kanye West and Kim Kardashian placed their pegs on the Met Gala red carpet for the kick off of the "Punk: Chaos To Couture" show, all of our eyes were on them. Partly because Yeezy has been known to rock the throw back punk uniform of the kilt, partly because what was girly girl Kim going to wear to rep the show theme? Well, here we are sitting pretty thinking we've got all things figured and—BAM!—the duo surprises us with some seriously unforeseen 'fits.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
