Taylor Swift transformed from a country cutie to a true punk when she walked the red carpet at the 2013 Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC tonight. She pumped up the edge with a J. Mendel black gown, dramatic smoky makeup, and a slicked-back hairdo. Taylor is no stranger to the fashionable event, having attended the bash twice before, in 2010 and 2011. Being a musician, Taylor will surely get some inspiration from the night's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture. Vote on Taylor's look and many more stylish stars in our Met Gala 2013 red carpet polls.
