Met Gala Beauty 2013: The Best & Worst Hair And Makeup On The Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

With a theme like "Punk: Chaos to Couture," it was pretty hard deciphering between the best and worst beauty looks at the 2013 Met Gala. But the editors here at HuffPost Style bravely took on the challenge.

The rebellious fashion statements that arose in the early to mid-1970s in both New York and London offered an array of inspiration for Monday night's fete. We nearly fainted when Nicole Richie strolled onto the red carpet with grey hair. Meanwhile, Giovanna Battaglia must have broken a world record for wearing the most safety pins as hair accessories.

While there was hair and makeup that shocked us in a good way, quite a few celebrities got lost in translation. (We're looking at you, Miley Cyrus and Ginnifer Goodwin!) See all of these beauty looks and more in the slideshow below, and be sure to vote for your favorite.
