Last night’s Met Gala was full of fashionable surprises and head-turning frocks— but some of Hollywood’s hottest stars turned more heads than others as they arrived to the red carpet.
While some A-list attendees stuck to the night’s theme— Punk: Chaos to Couture— donning spikes, studs and edgy accessories, others took their looks to an entirely new level, though not necessarily a good one... and then there were stars who surprised us by just showing up.
Check out our top 6 shockers from the Ball:
Nicole Richie: Talk about a jaw dropper! The star embraced the night’s theme by spray painting her hair silver and pulling it atop her head for a stunning— and shocking— updo. But this wasn’t your granny’s gray. Nicole pulled off the look with a wine-colored lip and elegant makeup (photo above)
Kim Kardashian: The expecting star showed up for her Met Ball debut with beau, Kanye West, by her side. But it wasn’t simply her presence that had heads turning. Kim, who’s due with her first baby in July, has been under a ton of scrutiny for her style choices throughout her pregnancy, as she’s gained over 60 pounds thus far. While the E! star has recruited style experts, taken fashion advice from her man and even asked for assistance from her fans on her maternity wear, Kim’s Met ensemble was questionable. Kim, who donned a floor-length floral Givenchy number, allegedly modified her dress 5 times to fit her growing baby bump. While we’re all for the mommy-to-be embracing her pregnancy curves, this wasn’t a flattering look.
Psy: It was a shock to see "Gangnam Style" star, Psy, at the star-studded event, as he hasn’t exactly been known to associate himself with the Hollywood elite — or the fashion elite. Wearing a red houndstooth suit jacket, bowtie and sunglasses the rapper admitted he was trying to stick to the night’s punk theme. He has been known for his unconventional style choices, but it was still odd to see him schmoozing with Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Anna Wintour: Acting as the event’s ambassador, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, showed up to the event looking chic as usual, but completely ignoring the night’s theme— even though she insists she didn’t because “pink is the color of punk.” Wearing a floor-length, floral Chanel gown covered in sequins, the magazine matriarch donned her usual sharp bob with tame makeup to compliment her elegant dress. While we still stand by our claim that Anna snubbed the theme, it is Anna Wintour— and she can do no wrong.
Tiger Woods and Lindsay Vonn: The athletic duo confirmed their couple status in March, but their appearance as a pair at last night’s Met Ball confirmed what everybody was wondering— and yes, they’re still on. Wearing a white gown, Lindsay posed for photos with Tiger, who wore a black tux… and they looked very in love.
Anne Hathaway: Blondes have more fun— and Anne can attest to that! The Les Miserables star showed up to last night’s Ball with a new blonde ‘do… and we have to say, she looks fabulous! It was a drastic change for the star, who already chopped off her hair for her role in the Oscar-winning movie, but the lighter locks definitely suit her. Not to mention, she sure rocked the edgy look…perhaps she’s taking a page out of Miley Cyrus’ book?
Who do you think had the most shocking red carpet arrival?
