There’s nothing punky about Anna Wintour. Though she is rumored to have been quite edgy in her 20s as she hit the London club scene, the editrix tends to favor more elegant looks on the red carpet. Tonight, however, we expected her to embrace this year’s Met Gala theme of “Punk: Chaos to Couture;” the Vogue editor-in-chief went for an upbeat springy aesthetic instead. Wintour’s floral sequin embroidered gown from Chanel’s SS13 Couture collection is certainly beautiful and perhaps irreverent in it’s own way.
“The curator of the exhibition Andrew Bolton told me that the color of punk is pink,” Wintour explained. ”And so I’m wearing pink by Chanel.”
