    Needles and Pins: Glamorous Garbage at the Met
    Punk was at the forefront of this year’s Met Gala, held by the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You’ve undoubtedly encountered an endless assortment of red carpet coverage already: Gwyneth Paltrow in her fuchsia Valentino Haute Couture gown; Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior frock, which also leaned more toward celebrity glamour than grit; Cara Delevingne and Sienna Miller tackling updated, studded looks, both by Burberry; and Kim Kardashian in her meme inspiring floral ensemble, courtesy of Givenchy’s head designer, Riccardo Tisci. What you may have missed while scouring the Internet for celebrity red carpet fashion hits and misses were the actual contents of the exhibit for which this entire shindig is thrown.

    Modern, avant-garde concoctions of McQueen and Givenchy are shown alongside Westwood creations birthed during the advent of street punk’s conception in the mid 1970s and early1980s British scene. Studded, deconstructed, tattered, and torn, the street style born of the anarchic and aggressive movement of anti-fashion urban youths strikes an ironic chord when viewed as high fashion. It’s hard to know how these accolades from the fashion elite would have been received had the punks of our past been able to see what was to become of their daily garb, but I’m leaning toward slightly off put. We mustn’t dwell on how our current fashion endeavors would have been perceived, however; we must instead look forward, be inspired by the innovative ideas that surround us and construct beautiful fantasies from the least likely of sources. Who knows what we’ll be inspired by next?

    Make sure to check out the exhibit if you’re lucky enough to be in New York City any time from now until August 14, 2013. I’m hoping to make it there myself.
