Met Gala Wedding-Worthy Dresses (With A Punk Twist!)

by Heather Hall

Each year the NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art kicks off the yearly Costume Institute exhibit with a swanky event that brings together designers, models and Hollywood's A-list alike. Attendees payed tribute to Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada at last year's Met Gala with metallic ensembles that had us totally swooning. And this year? With a theme called “Punk: Chaos to Couture" we expected looks to be quite the opposite. Spikes, black eye liner and lots of grunge hairstyles took over the red carpet, but we managed to pick out a few wedding-worthy gowns that can definitely inspire!
