Madonna Made A Big Entrance In Givenchy At The Met Gala

After Beyonce took to the carpet, I have to say, a sigh of relief could be heard from the press lined up along either side of the red staircase at the 2013 Met Gala. With King Bey in the house, it had to be all over, didn't it? *Knowing smirk* The Met Gala may have had their king, but there was still one queen who had not arrived. I'm talking of course, about Madonna, the queen of pop incarnate.
Just after Bey made her way all the way through the museum's gilded doors, the tell-tale explosion of flashbulbs and European-accented shouting bubbled up from the photo pit, and our sighs caught in our throats. Madonna had entered, wearing an all-over studded, tartan Givenchy blazer fastened over a fishnet bodysuit and very little else. Well no, that's not true. Although Madge's fantastic gams were on prominent display, there was a whole lot going on in her ensemble, including my personal favorite detail: an oversize padlock choker engraved with the letter 'M.' There were so many more things though!
From the cross hanging down the back of her ensemble like a sacrilegious tail to her bright red lips and magenta pumps, there were countless details, each one elevating the ensemble to new heights of punk rock perfection.
The consensus among those we spoke to seemed to be that to be punk one needs not necessarily, say, have a mohawk or accessorize exclusively with safety pins, and Madonna was no different. I overheard her telling a journalist who asked her about her upcoming trip abroad to build schools for girls, that 'giving girls an education is the most punk thing you can do.' UM, YES. 1000 TIMES YES. But so is totally revolutionizing the place of women in music, performing fearlessly, and WORKING not just fishnet, plaid, and piles of silver, but rocking all three of those things, plus a jet black bob AND red lip TOGETHER.
Could Madonna be the queen of the 2013 Met Gala? We don't like to play favorites, but let's just say it's a close race.

Madonna...absolutely rocked the red carpet at the Met Gala this year...She embodied the Punk theme and took it to the next level...I think Beyoncé looked good but Lady M is definitely Queen of the Ball this year!
