Our punky safety pin picks.

With The Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum rapidly approaching, there's one word on every fashion obsessed girl's mind: Punk. With the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition dictating the evening's theme, we have all things downtown running through our heads, like Doc Marten-clad wild horses. One of the most iconic signifiers of punk, along with the mohawk and the stud, is of course the safety pin. Versatile, cheap, but chic? Absolutely. Now, we're not talking using actual safety pins as earrings (although we totally knew kids who did that in high school) or going as majorly high fashion as Kristen Stewart's 2011 MTV Movie Awards Balmain frock, which was positively COVERED in the things, which we absolutely loved, but is a little, er, impractical for everyday wear. We're just talking about how to add a little bit of a punk rock touch to your everyday look, and lucky for us, the options were plentiful.

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