Tonight's Met Gala was all about punk, and many of Hollywood's sweetest celebrities jumped at the chance to amp up the edge on the red carpet. While we expected stars like Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry to embrace their rock chick roots, seeing celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, and Allison Williams go for more daring ensembles was fun to watch play out at the bash. Anne went platinum blond, Dakota Fanning showed off serious skin, Allison got into a goth mood, and Ginnifer Goodwin sported dramatic eye makeup for the night. Click through to see these stars and many more good girls get into the punk spirit at the 2013 Met Gala, and make sure to check out all the ladies on the Met Gala red carpet!
Not everyone who attended the 2013 Met Gala, which celebrates the Costume Institute's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, went full punk. In fact, a lot of the looks that went up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday night were anything but punk — but a handful of dedicated women tried their best to work the theme into their looks. Miley Cyrus's spiky, bleach-blond hair telegraphed Sid Vicious as much as as her sparkly mesh gown by Marc Jacobs, which had a seemingly unfinished hem, and Sarah Jessica Parker's tartan boots and mohawk headpiece spoke to two major components of the style.
Cara Delevingne's custom Burberry dress, festooned with studs, was an elegant treatment of the movement's focus on hardware, and so was Gisele Bündchen's Anthony Vacarello gown, which was held together by what looked like grommets. Christina Ricci's plaid gown was created by Vivienne Westwood, one of the designers credited with bringing punk not only into the public consciousness, but also into high fashion.
We didn't expect anything less than punk perfection from Sarah Jessica Parker. Needless to say, the actress killed it tonight in an ensemble composed of a black and gold printed Giles Deacon gown, tartan thigh-high boots by Christian Louboutin, and an outstanding Philip Treacy mohawk headpiece that only she could pull off. The look channeled a major punk-meets-glam vibe, which she furthered with decadent Fred Leighton jewelry. Do tell — are you loving her look?

Sarah Jessica Parker was the talk of the Punk: Chaos to Couture red carpet tonight as she arrived in a feathered headdress by Philip Treacy. The headpiece even caught the attention of Jennifer Lawrence, who stopped to touch the design on the steps of the Met Gala. In addition to the statement-making accessory, Sarah Jessica wore a Giles Deacon gown with knee-high tartan boots and had Vogue editor Hamish Bowles on her arm. She's a frequent fixture at the annual event and has attended as the guest of designers including Alexander McQueen in the past. Let us know what you think of SJP's look — and how it compares to the other designs on the red carpet — in our Met Gala 2013 red carpet polls!

Nicole Richie and Sarah Jessica Parker launched their new digital series with AOL in NYC yesterday. Nicole was at the event to talk about her new show, Candidly Nicole, which is based on her Twitter feed. The first episode of Candidly Nicole has already been released through AOL On and revolves around Nicole trying to get her "tramp stamp" tattoo removed. She said during the video, "[The tattoo] just means a certain thing and I don't want to be a part of that group." Meanwhile, SJP will be going behind the camera for her new upcoming show, City.Ballet, which follows the drama behind the scenes at the New York City Ballet, and will premiere in September. The two stars were joined at the event by Tracy Anderson, who is also making her own show with Gwyneth Paltrow, titled Second Chances. The digital series will follow Tracy and Gwyneth as they interview women who have overcome various hardships.
