Joan Smalls with Tom Ford and Karlie Kloss at the 2013 Met Gala.
Is there anything we love more than seeing our beautiful House Of Style hosts, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, looking STUNNING on one of the biggest—both literally and figuratively—red carpets of the year? NOPE. Lucky for us they absolutely shine on literally every carpet they walk, but we have to say that the twosome were in especially fine form at the 2013 Met Gala. Joan was on the arm of Tom Ford, who outfitted her in a stunning black lace gown with the most amazing combination of figure flattering cling and floor brushing draping that we think we’ve ever seen. Her beauty look was simple, with a dark eye and bare lip, but she made a nod to the gala’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme with straight, side parted ombre locks. Karlie, on the other hand, walked the carpet solo, but it was clear which house was her sartorial partner in crime: Louis Vuitton.
Karlie’s airy lavender gown showed a velvet floral pattern over sheer, translucent mesh at the v-neck bodice and down the full-length sleeves, giving way to the same pattern but over a silvery lining that made the gown appear to float above the model’s body. She wore a bright red lip, and most punk of all, BLACK hair. We caught up with Karlie on the carpet to discuss said tonsorial rebellion, and discovered that in fact, her most punk style moment of her whole life ALSO had to do with her locks. Can you guess what we’re talking about? We think maybe you can.
