^Sad but true. Rooney Mara could show up as Lizbeth and then she'd be right on track.

Urgh, I'd be so disappointed if Anna Wintour gave in and finally allowed this 'thing' to go to the MET Gala. Why aren't people making her go away?

seriously... why aren't they keeping the performers in THEME. Kanye AND Beyonce are inappropriate, and Kim should be blockered from the building.

What is the point of having a punk theme if you can get a punk performer. Patti Smith should be doing some spoken word; Iggy should be making an appearance; someone with some credibility. Even No Doubt have some ska-punkish vibes; let them play. But good lord, NOT Kanye or Beyonce.

i saw that the selecter reformed recently too....the great pauline black was very much part of that era and was instrumental in influencing no doubt's ska-sound. they definitely should have a lot of musicians who were part of the era not just a bunch of random shallow celebs looking for publicity.

I don't see why not she's already there. I still don't get why everyone is stuck on the "theme" down a tee, what does Bruno Mars and Azealia Banks have to do with Prada or Florence Welch with American Women?

It would be a nice added touch if they did have a punk performer but they'll pick a popular artist at the moment like they always do, this year it's Tisci's choice.

At the end of the day the exhibition is what needs to be punk, at the opening night you'll have glamazons polished to perfection and filthy rich superstars wearing custom made pieces quite the opposite of punk.

because i think at the end of the day,the essence and spirit of the punk movement in all its social consciousness,gets lost in all the superficiality. the irony is,punk wholeheartedly anti-superficial....anti-establishment....anti-emperor's new clothes. that's why it worried me originally how this will be conveyed. i would like to see this being shown in the social manner in which it influenced a generation of ideals and individualism.

Well, where would you find artists tha are Prada ? Only artists wearing Prada could perform..?

With punk is different, this year is so turned to music and we see so many references to artists, that they could at least make an effort and put someone punk related performing.

And Rihanna has a show that night and she's on the list, so I don't know about the list either.

At least we can count on her to have fun with the night, instead of just using it as an excuse to wear a gown. I always, always look forward to her decisions.

Dream on softgrey baby! Debbie and Chrissie are relics,-- why would any PR in their right mind-- in this youth-obsessed climate, promote the event with 50-something headlining?

Let the mindless and dope-filled parade on opening night commence. Even if all the nitwits were banned from this show, it's still high fashion's take on punk. In that context, this show can't really escape from the shallow connotations.

I think I'm loving this opening mess more and more: Beyonce, Kanye, Kim for an event celebrating punk... That is hilarious! I hope they add Justin Beaver and Selena Gomez to sell this to the tweens. Oh Anna, you uninspired piece of commercial rubbish, turning everything into a department store catalogue for the masses. And Riccardo, you desperate thug-wannabe, still hustling those overpriced ugly-*** graphic tees to the superfuturers and now hustling your BFFs Kanye and Beyonce to headline... punk. Just a mess of an event that is as credible to its original source as these rich, vapid spoilt brats are clueless to the spirit of punk. Sit back and enjoy this joke. Just seeing that invitation-- which resembles something designed for a WalMart licensed junior perfume line, complete with "grunge"-splattered typeface (how very 2006 of you!) should clue you in on how clueless this all will be.

Why not, they could have Carey Mulligan whip out the mike and have her redo her New York New York set from Shame
