Who Wore Vintage to the Met’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” Opening Gala?

I look forward to seeing the Met’s “Punk” exhibit, but the excess at the gala seemed positively distasteful. It didn’t help that Beyoncé was the chair of the event. I don’t know what was worse…the celebs that were completely oblivious to the historic aspect of the exhibit and wore couture gowns and Cartier jewels or the ones that tried to “dress punk.” Regardless, the Olsen twins didn’t disappoint, wearing vintage (Mary-Kate in Chanel, Ashley in Dior) in a slightly defiant gesture. Amanda Seyfried looked gorgeous in vintage Givenchy. Ann Hathaway sported a vintage (well, 1992) Valentino gown and Lily Collins threw a vintage Moschino leather jacket over her dress.
PS-If I were invited this is what I would have worn: TRASH COUTURE GOWN

I have a BFA in Photography from NYU and worked as a photojournalist and talent scout for major record labels before opening Chelsea Girl in 1993.
