If only we could see her face.

The Met Ball is like the Oscars for the fashion industry: all the best people in all the best dresses. This year's theme, punk, presents an interesting conundrum: will people go all out, liberty spikes and Givenchy nose rings and all, or just throw some studs on a Chanel suit and call it pseudo-punk? We're hoping for the former, and so in the spirit of going the distance, we've picked out our favorite punk fashions and paired them with Met Ball regulars like Anna Wintour and Julianne Moore and some fantasy guests (Bjork, anyone?). Click through to see the looks we want to see on the red carpet, and let us know what you're hoping for in the comments.
For the past few weeks, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven't missed a chance to flaunt their new publicity stunt coupledom, appearing together at various public outings and events. So we assumed that Kim would attend the Met Ball alongside her fashion snob hubby Kanye--but come the big night, the reality star was nowhere to be found. So, what happened? Could Kardashian have actually, gasp, chosen not to attend an event? Did KimYe have a fight? According to Radar Online (so, um, believe what you will...), it was neither:
One of the highlights from Monday night's CFDA Awards was when host Seth Meyers came on stage wearing the same outfit Womenswear Designer of the Year nominee Marc Jacobs wore to the Met Ball a few weeks ago: a black see-through lace polo dress by Comme des Garcons with white boxers. Though Jacobs ended up losing to the Olsen twins, Meyers won the audience over with the outfit change, eliciting the biggest laugh of the night (way more than that Galliano joke) and even applause. And while the SNL comedian is indeed hilarious and no doubt deserves credit for most of the zingers he doled out at the awards, it turns out the ensemble wasn't even his idea. It was Anna Wintour's.
