At the 2013 Met Gala, some celebs confused the “punk” theme with a “wear a pretty dress and dark eyeshadow” theme. Taylor Swift was definitely one of those stars, but we’ll forgive her, because we’ve seen her attempts at punk and they leave a lot to be desired.
Swift was gorgeous in a J Mendel dress and clutch, Givenchy shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Her gown had some major mesh cutouts — definitely more daring than Taylor’s usual awards show sparkle.
She added some unexpected cotton-candy pink color and rough texture to her hair, and gave photographers a moody pout to fit the evening’s theme.
