(AP) There were plenty of risk-takers on the Met gala red carpet.


The Metropolitan Museum of Art fundraiser known as "the party of the year" had a red carpet Monday night to rival the Oscars. But with stars on the arms of designers and the theme "Punk: From Chaos to Couture," many braved the chance they'd end up a "don't."


Miley Cyrus (in Marc Jacobs), Anne Hathaway (in Valentino) and Cameron Diaz (in Stella McCartney) were among the celebrities to embrace the punk theme, and Beyonce, the event's honorary chairwoman, seemed the girl on fire in a flame-motif gown by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci.


Tisci also dressed Rooney Mara the kind of star who can pull off punk and a pregnant Kim Kardashian, a less obvious candidate. Kardashian faced insta-critics online for her floral-print, high-neck gown.


The Met gala is largely orchestrated by Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor-in-chief, who acknowledged the edgy theme could have thrown some people off their fashion game.


"I think (punk) is so eclectic and so original and maybe it sort of represents what's very fearless about fashion," she said.
