The annual Costume Institute Gala in New York, also known as the Met Ball, is the fashion industry’s chance to show off on its very own red carpet. In attendance at the 2013 ball were stars including Sienna Miller, Anne Hathaway, Miley Cyrus and Madonna, many of whom opted to wear outfits inspired by this year’s theme: ‘punk chaos’
