Isn't Beyonce the honorary hostess or some such ridiculous honor? Weird choice for a Punk theme. That said, knowing the theme I can't wait to see what people wear.

Also, do the designers always take a starlet as a date? Maybe they always have, I've just never seen the list.

Saint Laurent is dead, how can he take anyone?

This show (ball) has turned into a B-list celebrity event. Too bad- it was much more fun in the 70s and 80s. But then there is really nothing left of good ol decadent and stylish New York society.

by Anonymousreply 805/06/2013

R6 - Now I remember that there was criticism about Stewart's dress and overall styling. But meant AnnE. She freaked out and ditched the gown she was supposed to wear because her co-star was wearing a similar design. I can't remember who the original designer was, but they had some type of an agreement and she wore another one at the last moment. She even released a statement afterwards.

It's odd that a recent Oscar winner/attention whore isn't on the list.

by Anonymousreply 905/06/2013

Yeah, AnnE ditched Valentino to wear Prada and then dissed Prada. Even with that kerfuffle, if she wanted to attend, some designer would dress her. She could still show up. She's in NYC right now.

But, it's B-list/C-list show at best now.

Aside from Frank Ocean and her, this guest list is beyond weak. I'm stunned Madonna is attending given that GOOP will be in the same room, and we all know what a vicious backstabber she was to Madonna.

And why is GOOP still pretending she's some fashion icon. When can we finally say she isn't?

I know DL hates her but AnnE actually steals the show so far, she's looks good in that dress (vintage Valentino - and he's walking in with her not Goop so you know he's forgiven her the Oscar debacle). Her body's banging in it and she's rocking the bleach blonde thing. She's one of the few there sticking somewhat to this year's theme (punk).

I also see she's panty-less here lol. But the dress requires it so ok.

“I’m embracing the punk. There’s so much punk style in everything we do and wear everyday; we just never have the chance to do it all the way.” —Hanneli Mustaparta, former model/current dummy

“I skipped punk and went straight to couture. I never did punk.” —Andre Leon Talley, editor at large of Vogue/total fucking clown

“I don’t think I had a punk fashion phase but I think I was definitely a punk.” —Rooney Mara, actress who dressed punk in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

“I did not [have a punk phase]. That’s why I think my version of punk for me is not probably the mohawk, typical punk that you’d sort of envision. A little bit more like ‘romantic punk.’” —Kim Kardashian, notable reality TV shithead

“Punk absolutely was an influence in my life. I grew up in the 80s, right at the end of the 70s. Still very formidable years of my upbringing and existence and it was absolutely formed by punk rock for sure.” —Cameron Diaz, jizz-haired girl from that movie

“I’ve gone through many phases in my life, I think [punk] may have been one briefly.” —Minka Kelly, most obnoxious character on Friday Night Lights

“I feel very elegant but kinda punk rock because it’s leather.” —Jessica Alba, some actress

“I grew up on classic rock and that obviously at some point delves into [punk]. I love the Clash. I like the Sex Pistols.

R130 True punk was a rejection of the over commercialized music scene of the 1970s and incorporated feelings of frustration over the poor economic situation and lack of opportunities for working class youth in England at the time. Its sound with the strong 4/4 beat was influenced by Reggae and there was drive for a raw, unpolished musicianship. One of the reasons punk never took hold in America was because at the time, the disaffected youth here already had a music of their own: namely rap. Goth has a more polished, more produced sound. You would almost never encounter a synthesizer in punk the way you do with Goth and is not tied to the political or social issues. Although goth is a sub-genre of punk, the typical goth song's lyrics are going to be a lot darker and introspective than what you would find in punk.

R139 Rap existed for a long time before it actually made it to recording studios. It existed primary underground and at parties.

[quote]Prior to 1979, recorded hip hop music consisted mainly of PA system recordings of parties and early hip hop mixtapes by DJs. Puerto Rican DJ Disco Wiz is credited as the first hip hop DJ to create a "mixed plate," or mixed dub recording, when, in 1977, he combined sound bites, special effects and paused beats to technically produce a sound recording.

Just because white kids in suburbs had not heard it yet doesn't mean it didn't exist.
