Last night while you were sleeping, Grazia Daily did an all-nighter to bring you all the frocks from the Met Gala 2013 ready for when you wake up. Anyone who is ANYONE in planet fashion hiked up the 154 feet long staircase (with a designer pal on their arm) last night to be welcomed into the museum by fashion editortrix Anna Wintour.

The theme was of course punk and so there were plenty of fake nose rings, leather and chatter about The Clash on the red carpet. In the words of Lena Dunham: 'It's an excuse to spit in the museum.' The queen of the punks was (of course) Ms Sarah Jessica Parker who wore a mohican headdress by Philip Treacy, tartan thigh highs by Christian Louboutin and a frock by Brit designer Giles Deacon. Jennifer Lawrence was clearly impressed by SJP's effort as she was spotted running her hands through her mohawk. Well it does look inviting.

Not to be out punked, Miley Cyrus spiked up her hair into a Johnny Rotten-esque 'do and slipped into a sleeved net Morticia stylee Marc Jacobs dress. Speaking of punk'd hair, Nicole Richie wore an elegant white custom Topshop embellished gown, but added drama with her hair pulled high and dyed grey. Yes really, grey.

Another fashion anarchist was Sienna Miller who wore a studded Burberry leather jacket and spikes in her hair and ears. Her pal Cara Delevingne also wore a custom spiky Burbs number, but insisted that she wasn't being very punk as would have to miss the afterparty to work early in the morning. But then she added that she might just go and get a tattoo instead.

The Met Ball isn't the Met Ball without a Beyonce mega-moment, and this year was no exception. Beyonce was one of the last guests to turn up, in a high-impact Givenchy black and gold gown with black gloves and gold embellished thigh high boots. Speaking of Givenchy, the new face of the house Amanda Seyfried also got the flashbulbs going in a vintage Givenchy frock. 

Anne Hathaway's red carpet look was worlds away from her twee pink Prada Oscars frock, as she wore a black Valentino floor sweeper from the archives. Anne said that her inspiration was Debbie Harry and added 'I took the chaos thing as far as couture would allow.' That pretty much sums up most of the Met Gala ensembles.

But what we did learn from the punk themed Met Gala is that most A Listers did not have a 'punk phase.' Jennifer Lawrence laughed at the suggestion and replied that she was a cheerleader, Avril Lavigne is as punk as it gets for Hailee Steinfed and just in case you were wondering, no Kim Kardashian did not have a punk phase. Kim made her Met Gala debut in a floral sleeved Riccardo Tisci gown with a thigh high slit and described herself as a 'romantic punk.'

Forget the side-bum, 'Pink is the colour of punk' was Gwyneth Paltrow's motto as she wore an elegant Valentino gown with just a simple mesh cut-out at the neck. So who were the, how do you say it, un-punky-est of all the red carpet goers? Well Anna Wintour wore floral Chanel, Carey Mulligan wore black minimalist Balenciaga and Jennifer Lawrence wore an elegant Dior gown + veil like the one she wears in the Dior ads. 

But as Marc Jacobs pointed out, perhaps they are the biggest punks of all, as he said wearing a tuxedo to a punk themed bash is as subversive as you could get. So how did he rebel against the punk dress code? He went as a dandy in a Comme Des Garcons polka-dot suit.

Laura Bee (Tue May 07 01:05:38 BST 2013): Oh good lord. My grandma just called she wants her floral curtains from the guest room in the 80's back Kim K.
Stephanie Freeman (Tue May 07 02:59:03 BST 2013): Not loving SJP's outfit...
Laurel Waldron (Tue May 07 09:44:17 BST 2013): Is there a trend for dodgy OTK boots I appear to have missed? Great dress on SJP but it's killef by over-accessorising. And don't get me started on Sofa Kardashian...
Susan Beumee (Tue May 07 16:04:34 BST 2013): Apart from an occasional spot on frock and SJP boots... Designers please! This is Punk not a halloween /garden tea party! Shame on you.
Anna Machell (Tue May 07 18:55:33 BST 2013): I'm kind of liking Kristen Stewart; the styling's great, the proportions are just the right side of 'off' and it's not costumey. Miley Cyrus is chanelling Debbie Harry beautifully and LeeLee Sobieski looks effortless. And it's more prim-punk than anything but Rooney Mara looks great.
Zoe Rocholl (Tue May 07 21:50:24 BST 2013): Kristen has a massive camel toe.
Kirsty Cunningham (Tue May 07 22:26:49 BST 2013): Oh my, she has.
Kirsty Cunningham (Tue May 07 22:27:49 BST 2013): Kim Kardashian is quite something too.
Darolome Barileja (Wed May 08 08:01:52 BST 2013): How can many of these outfits be classified as Best Dressed when they did not adhere to the Punk theme in anyway? SJP (rather more V. Westwood punk tho) and Madonna were definitely Best Dressed and in tune with the theme. Miley was a good runner-up. Someone needs to tell Beyonce that Baroque is not Punk!!! ( and also Grazia it would seem!). Similarly, according to Gwyneth then , if you wore Pink at the time you were classified Punk - NOT!!! More ridiculous Goop from GP! Really Grazia get a grip on reality and give credit to the stars who were brave enough and fun enough to embrace the theme rather than ignoring it!
Darolome Barileja (Wed May 08 08:07:01 BST 2013): In fact Grazia, where is the pic of Madonna in that fabulous Givenchy studded blazer with her chains, torn nets, padlocks and crucifix etc. How can you ignore her?!!!
