Never one to miss a fabulous party, Cara Delevingne arrived at the 2013 Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 6).
The 20-year-old model opted for a long-sleeved black Burberry gown with a neck cut down to her belly and gold studs on the top. Sharing several shots of her evening with pals including Georgia May Jagger and Rihanna, Cara tweeted, “Last night was amazing @georgiamjagger badgalriri thank you boo!!!” and “Had so much fun at the Met ball last night! You punks!”
With co-chairs Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, Riccardo Tisci, and Anna Wintour, the 2013 Met Costume Gala is poised to be the biggest and brightest so far.
Of the PUNK: Chaos to Couture theme, Metropolitan Museum of Art Director and CEO Thomas P. Campbell told press, Punks signature mixing of references was fueled by artistic developments such as Dada and postmodernism, so it makes sense to present this exhibition in a museum that also shows the broader output of those movements. Indeed, that dialogue between art and fashion is what makes The Costume Institute so singular. Projects like this dont happen without sponsorship, and we greatly appreciate the generosity of Moda Operandi, and its co-founders Aslaug Magnusdottir and Lauren Santo Domingo.
