The Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art takes place today, and as always, the styles are guaranteed to steal the show. This year's Met Gala promises especially fun looks since the theme is borrowed from the museum's latest exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture. The showcase includes original punk garments and explores how punk has inspired high fashion. To get in the spirit, we're taking a look at that same punk world — specifically, the women who shaped the lively scene that exploded in the 1970s.
You may be familiar with femmes like Joan Jett, but have you heard of names like Tina Weymouth? Ahead, join us as we take a look at the most iconic women who rocked punk like nobody's business. And don't forget you can watch the Met Gala red carpet streaming live on Vogue.com starting at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT.
