10 Punkest Fashion Moments at the Met Gala 2013: Beyonce, Jessica Alba (Photos)


Now, before you say to yourself, “what does a mom blogger know about punk fashion,” I should give you some background. Before I was a mom and before I was a blogger, I was a magazine editor for a small press lifestyle magazine called Punk Rock Confidential. We covered the music, style, homes and – of course – the fashion involved in the punk community. It was a very fun gig and gave me a ton of knowledge about punk style from Trash and Vaudeville to Vivenne Westwood.

I thought it was pretty amusing to see pop culture stars of very non-punk backgrounds trying to get their punk on. And you know what? They did it, but in their own unique ways. Here are the 10 punkest fashion moments from the Met Gala 2013 right here. Which is your favorite?

  • Nicole Richie’s Hair 9 of 10

    One of the punkest things you can do is go with a non-traditional hair color. And while some "punks" go for hot pink or a bright blue, Nicole Richie went with a stark gray!
