Punk: Chaos To Couture Met Exhibit Proves To Be A Huge Hit!

Punk-themed Met Costume Institute exhibit is in the top five of most successful exhibits!

Not that we doubted it or anything, but this year's Met Costume Institute exhibition was very popular with patrons!

It officially closed this week and approximately 442,350 people visited the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, which is an additional 100,000 visitors more when compared to last year's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit. That one only drew 339,838 peeps.

Maybe the punk theme proved to be more exciting than Prada, but we bet this year's magnificent Met Gala also had something to do with helping to attract eyeballs!

After all, who could forget the insane outfits and hairdos from that night??? We know some of those images are burned into our retinas FOR LIFE!

The punk-y exhibit lands in the top five of Met exhibits of the past 25 years, with the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit still holding the top spot, followed by Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, the Jackie O show in 2001, and the Chanel show in 2005.

We imagine Anna Wintour is toasting the news of this success at the Conde Nast offices right now!

Check Out A Sneak Peek At The Met's Punk: Chaos To Couture Exhibit!

The Met gives a sneak peek at this years punk themed met gala

We are CRAZY about the upcoming Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit at the Met, and now the museum has given us a sneak peek of what to expect!

So far, we really like what we see!

Drawing inspiration from such rock masters as Patti Smith and Sid Vicious, designers like Riccardo Tisci, Junya Watanabe, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Gianni Versace, Helmut Lang, Ann Demeulemeester, Rei Kawakubo and of course, Vivienne Westwood, offer up their interpretations of the irreverent punk aesthetic.

As fab as the exhibit may be, we're even more excited about the Met Gala, and can't wait to see what everyone will be wearing!

Will they dig into designer archives for punky garb or have something custom made?

Will they show up in something cray or look totally polished?

What will Anna Wintour wear?!

So many questions! And we'll have to wait until May 6th to get some answers.

Check out the gallery (below) of what you can expect from fashion's most fabulous ball!
