The Met Ball Goes (Mostly) Punk: The hair, the makeup, the gowns, and the juicy gossip—we had this year's Met Gala covered. (Including how Godmother of Punk, Vivienne Westwood, got snubbed.) The large crowd means there were lots of opportunities for photobombs on the red carpet. Finally, we voted for our best dressed and rated how "punk" the looks were.

Tisci came to the defense of Kim and his dress, but that wasn't enough to stop her getting unceremoniously cropped out of Vogue's Met Gala best-dressed slideshow.
