You gotta hand it to celebrities. They really know how to comport themselves on the spot. Except when they don’t…

Katy Perry
“Tonight for the Met I am channeling the OG queen of punk, Joan of Arc!”

Gwyneth Paltrow
“It’s punk because I’ve gone totally classic on a punk night!”

Andre Leon Talley
“I skipped punk and went straight to couture. I never did punk.”

Rooney Mara
“I don’t think I had a punk fashion phase but I think I was definitely a punk.”

Cameron Diaz
“I grew up in the 80s, right at the end of the 70s. Still very formidable [sic] years of my upbringing and existence and it was absolutely formed by punk rock for sure.”

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

Kristen Stewart
“I grew up on classic rock and that obviously at some point delves into [punk]. I love the Clash. I like the Sex Pistols. I did a movie called The Runaways that got me a little bit more aware of stuff like that. But the energy of it couldn’t coincide with who I am more.”
