New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, aka the 'it' fashion party of the year, went punk for the costume institute exhibit this year. The Met Gala's 'Punk Chaos to Couture' exhibit opening was hosted by actress, Rooney Mara and designer, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy.
All of Hollywood's best came dressed in their best and many embraced the theme with spikes, studs, chains and gothic inspired gowns.

Girl Meets Boy-ish Trend
The White and Black Jacket: Loving this look that can add a little bit of glamour to jeans, and make the perfect contrast with a brightly-hued skirt. Best of all it’s a piece in your closet that can go from day to night!
Double Monk Straps – every bootie needs them! We’ve always seen them on men’s footwear but now we can wear them too! Such a great look for ankle boots.
The Equestrian Detail: It’s all in the details and this season it is all about those equestrian bits on your favourite accessories like watches, belts, jewellery, handbags, and tops! Pair this trend with a luxurious autumn hue like cognac to give your outfit a polished, chic look. Update this look by wearing multiple necklace strands and stacking up those bangles.
The Ox Blood/Bordeaux/ Burgundy/Maroon Madness: I just can’t stop wearing my beautiful burgundy velvet Scarletts! It is a dark yet vibrant colour that epitomizes glamour and confidence. I love this colour and have already started incorporating it into my wardrobe! Nails, lipstick, shoes, skirts, tops, jeans, handbag… the possibilities are endless!
Luxurious in Leather
The Leather Skirt: Luxe leather style is perfection for fall. Too much of a bold look for you? Buy an A-line skirt rather than a pencil skirt or leather skinnies. It is a bit more playful, feminine and less dominatrix. But hey I would go for all three!
Metallic Brocade: A detailed delicate fabric with threads of lurex intertwined to make this material feel ultra rich. Talk about recycled fashion! Brocade was huge in the 17th century and now it’s back! I love this elegant metallic brocade on skirts, cropped pants and fitted jackets. Modernize the look with some metallic shoes and a solid coloured top! Too much to handle? Try an all black brocade pattern first! Subtle but definitely not boring!
