This year's Met Gala attendees gave us good reason to think two outfits are better than one. And who can blame Ashley Greene for trading her dramatic Marchesa gown for something a little shorter come afterparty? Those iconic Met stairs (read: not ornate-dress friendly) alone could prompt an outfit change, but we think it gives this A-list set another chance to show off one more great look before night's end. Case in point: Allison Williams's surprising dark and sexy twofer, courtesy of Altuzarra. Or how about Madonna's Givenchy Haute Couture tartan and fishnets getup that turned into just fishnets all over? The beauty of seeing fashion's finest is actually seeing them at their finest, and that means outfit changes galore. Which stars were bona fide Met Gala quick-change artists? Find out right this way.

When Beyoncé arrived on the red carpet at last night's Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, we thought the show was over: Queen Bey had arrived fashionably late to fashion's biggest night, and she stole the show in custom Givenchy. But just around the corner, Madonna — perhaps the original Queen of Pop — seemed ready to take back her throne. Moments after Beyoncé made her way atop the staircase, Madonna showed up in a look so punk, we thought she might have ransacked the museum's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition to get all the materials. (Which, now that we think about it, would have been quite fitting.)
Also in bespoke Givenchy, Madonna had all the workings of true punk royalty. For the details on her look and her afterparty attire, find them here in this gallery.
The hair and makeup at the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is consistently some of the best of the year. And with a theme centering around the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, high drama was a must-have look. But surprisingly, the best looks of the evening ran the gamut of sophisticated rebel to all-out rocker.
Sarah Jessica Parker wowed the red carpet congregation with an over-the-top Trojan headpiece that was nestled among a twisting collection of fishtail plaits. Nicole Richie was also a surprising arrival, sporting a wispy, gray beehive that was part powdered wig and part punk. Speaking of wigs, Madonna opted for a Bettie Page-inspired hairpiece, complete with short, blunt fringe.
Moving on to the blondes of the ball, Sienna Miller went all-out grunge with a seriously textured hairstyle embellished with a studded hairpiece, inky black liner, and a nude lipstick. And in one of the more jaw-dropping moments of the evening, Anne Hathaway stunned with a peroxide blond pompadour, accented with lavender shadow and loads of liner. Whether they were giving punk a sophisticated spin or going completely chaotic, these five ladies stole the show in their own right. But who was your pick for the best punk beauty look of the Met Gala?
The British sure do know how to rock and roll, so with last night's Met Gala theme being punk, the American ladies took a cue from their friends across the pond, just how to look punk-sational and elegant all at the same time. It's fashion's biggest night out, so click here to see just how these lovelies from the UK paired their hair and makeup with their funky attire.
The Brits sure know how to rock it out punk style on the red carpet, which is perhaps why so many of them were in attendance at last night's 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in New York City. Clad in every designer under the sun (more on who wore what British designers later), they were dressed to impress from head to toe with stunning accessories, gowns and shoes full of chains, studs and of course — fishnet. Take a look at these British beauties in my gallery here and leave a comment at the end letting me know who you think looked best.
After weeks of waiting on pins and needles, the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has come — and gone. Sticking to the night's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, models, actresses, and fashion fixtures filled the red carpet in punk-inspired ensembles from the likes of Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, and Donna Karan.
