Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Fashion on Tuesday 14 May 2013

I guess the beauty of being a celebrity is that you can wear whatever you want, even if it makes you look like the evil witch from Disney’s Snow White cartoon. The official look for the Met Gala this year was supposed to be punk. But I guess something got lost in comunication because it’s clear these celebrities resemble classic Disney characters.
