Models, designers, celebrities, and more descended upon Manhattan this week for the 2013 Met Gala, and made sure to share their punk-infused snaps throughout the event. In addition to those high-glamour photos, we also got a glimpse of our fashionable favorites in their moments of work and play. Hilary Rhoda had an unfortunate spill on the set, while her fellow model Coco Rocha showed off her most-loved color of the moment. Cara Delevingne cozied up to Karl Lagerfeld in Singapore, and Stella McCartney made a special visit to Rihanna's concert in London. Also hanging across the pond was Nicky Hilton, who shared a cool candid snap in front of a classic British phone booth, while Bar Refaeli warned against the dangers of skinny dipping — alone.

This year's Met Gala attendees gave us good reason to think two outfits are better than one. And who can blame Ashley Greene for trading her dramatic Marchesa gown for something a little shorter come afterparty? Those iconic Met stairs (read: not ornate-dress friendly) alone could prompt an outfit change, but we think it gives this A-list set another chance to show off one more great look before night's end. Case in point: Allison Williams's surprising dark and sexy twofer, courtesy of Altuzarra. Or how about Madonna's Givenchy Haute Couture tartan and fishnets getup that turned into just fishnets all over? The beauty of seeing fashion's finest is actually seeing them at their finest, and that means outfit changes galore. Which stars were bona fide Met Gala quick-change artists? Find out right this way.
It's the battle of the Brits: Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne both hit the Costume Institute Gala red carpet wearing similar studded looks from Burberry. Sienna decided to contrast her fluid crepe white gown with a black studded leather biker jacket and a matching spiked headband, while Cara opted for a black studded plunge-neck column gown, complete with an equally tough white leather clutch. Both beauties channeled punk-cool to perfection, but which Met Gala look do you prefer?

Not everyone who attended the 2013 Met Gala, which celebrates the Costume Institute's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, went full punk. In fact, a lot of the looks that went up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday night were anything but punk — but a handful of dedicated women tried their best to work the theme into their looks. Miley Cyrus's spiky, bleach-blond hair telegraphed Sid Vicious as much as as her sparkly mesh gown by Marc Jacobs, which had a seemingly unfinished hem, and Sarah Jessica Parker's tartan boots and mohawk headpiece spoke to two major components of the style.
Cara Delevingne's custom Burberry dress, festooned with studs, was an elegant treatment of the movement's focus on hardware, and so was Gisele Bündchen's Anthony Vacarello gown, which was held together by what looked like grommets. Christina Ricci's plaid gown was created by Vivienne Westwood, one of the designers credited with bringing punk not only into the public consciousness, but also into high fashion.
With tonight's 2013 Met Gala theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, on the brain, we've been inspired to round up our top modern-day punk style icons. From Miley Cyrus's bold onstage attire and risqué magazine cover shoots to Gwen Stefani's tough-girl charm, we've rounded up seven ladies who've mastered punk. Watch on to see who else made our list, and catch the Met Gala red carpet live tonight at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT on Vogue.com. On Allison: BCBG Max Azria vest.
Kate Moss was the life of the party in London last night! Along with her husband, Jamie Hince, mom Linda Moss, and friends like Stella McCartney and Rhys Ifans, Kate put on her finest '80s gear to mark the 50th birthday of their pal Fran Cutler at the Groucho Club. Fran, a PR executive, has been friends with Kate for years, and their many mutual friends helped pull off the surprise bash, which included many unique moments, from a This-Is-Your-Life-style presentation from Rhys and a set from Rita Ora.
Rita was there with her BFF Cara Delevingne. 20-year-old Cara and 22-year-old Rita's social circles have overlapped with Kate's now that Rita is romantically linked to Kate's good friend Dave Gardner, who's also close with David Beckham. Rita and Cara both dressed up for the period theme, though Kate topped them all by pulling out a second ensemble for the afterparty at The Box.
Our favorite style setters let loose on social media this week, sharing cute snaps of their early-April activities with family and friends. Sisters Poppy and Cara Delevingne shared hugs with their fashionable pals Jessica Hart and Sienna Miller, and Margherita Missoni gave us a glimpse of her growing baby bump. While Jessica Alba and her stylish family kept it cool in pastels on Easter Sunday, fashion fixtures like Nicole Richie and Elin Kling celebrated the holiday in cool black-on-black looks. Miroslava Duma and Freida Pinto had us drooling over their high-fashion ensembles, while Lou Doillon and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept things silly with mustache mugs and bunny ears.

Aside from recently being named the face of Burberry Body Tender, model Cara Delevingne has two other claims to fame: her famously bold eyebrows. Her embracing full brows has spawned a trend that has women contemplating their eyebrow brushes. But if you're a little scared about dusting on some pigment for fear of looking perpetually angry at the world, don't fret. Here are some things to keep in mind while doing up your eyebrows:
- Stick to powders, not pencils. While pencils have usually been the mainstay for brows for generations (hello, '80s makeup), powders are easier to handle and create a more natural, feathered look. Grab two shades: one that is a shade lighter than your natural color for daytime and one that is a tone darker for more drama.
- Brush powder on your hairs, not your skin. One common mistake women make is that they press on their brushes and pencils too hard, causing pigment to adhere to their skin. This makes brows look clownish and fake. Use a lighter touch to ensure the pigment coats your hairs, not your skin, and always make sure you're brushing in the direction that the hair is growing in.
- Focus pigment on the outer two-thirds of your brows. If putting powder on your brows makes you look clownish, take note at where you're focusing the pigment. Brushing powder into the inner corners of your eyes causes them to look fake. Instead, focus the powder from the beginning of your arch to the end of your brow. Then, using a brow brush, blend the existing pigment into the inner corner for a more natural look.
- Mix your colors. The best way to get a natural look is to blend your colors. Use the darker shade in a thinner line along the center hairs of your brows. Then blend the lighter shade out from the center of your brows to the ends. This will ensure you'll always look natural.
