For the 2013 Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the stars took the punk theme to the extreme. Mohawks, smoky eye makeup, colored hair, and more rocker chic beauty looks were spotted on the red carpet. We count down the top five looks that had our jaws dropping and crown the biggest surprise of the night.
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 lob is the hottest new hair trend for Spring, but now it seems Alice Eve and Nicole Richie are already giving the look an update. Both ladies were spotted recently with full-on fringe to accompany their long bob haircuts. Alice pulled out her brow-grazing bangs to promote Star Trek Into Darkness in Berlin, where she paired the look with a bright red lipstick. Last night at the AOL 2013 Digital Content NewFront, Nicole debuted thick blunt bangs that sweep deep down to her lashes. A long bob plus a long bang equals a stylish match for Spring.

Nicole was at the event to talk about her new show, Candidly Nicole, which is based on her Twitter feed.

Over in Paris this morning, celebrities like Twiggy, Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, Natalia Vodianova, Marianne Faithfull, Anna Wintour, Nancy Shevell, Sir Paul McCartney along with U2 lead singer Bono and his wife Ali attended the Stella McCartney Autumn/Winter 2013 Ready-to-Wear show. It looks like Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie got cosy in the city of love and the elder music set sat together and chatted. The clothing looks amazing in the photos as modeled by Cara Delevigne and Karli Kloss just to name a few wearing purples, blacks, whites and greys. Whilst Sir Paul and his bride arrived in the appropriate coloured tops, they both chose light coloured denim on the bottom. Hopefully Stella is as proud of the collection as we are excited, after all, she did get a standing ovation from this critical fashionable front row.
