Celebrities dug deep to channel their inner punk princesses for the Met Ball this year, sporting everything from spiked hair to nearly-black lipstick. Stars like Taylor Swift and Elle Fanning, who typically favor classic red lips and sophisticated smoky eyes, took bold beauty risks on this red carpet. While there's no need to shave off your hair à la Miley, consider taking a cue from these Hollywood beauties and tip-toe out of your comfort zone—even if that just means swapping your black liner for a bright blue.
Safety pins and studs were peppered onto dresses and accessories, while little leather jackets embellished with a smattering of spikes made for great on-theme cover-ups.
Madonna and Sarah Jessica Parker both arrived with their underwear on show - Madonna's Givenchy jacket barely covering her ripped lace body stocking, and SJP's thigh-high velvet tartan boots coming as a surprise beneath her beautiful Giles gown.
Hair and make-up featured a predominance of punk touches - Anne Hathaway showed off new hair shades to cover a spectrum of bright white and platinum blonde.
