It should surprise exactly no one that Christian Louboutin was well-represented on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet. Even for celebs who punted on the event’s punk theme (and there were a lot of them who didn’t exactly go for the gusto), adding a pair of Louboutin’s many spiked and studded heels or toting one of his various sharp-edged clutches was a quick way to give a nod to the punk exhibit without actually having to take too many risks or commit to a full look, which is the route that both Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba went with their Christian Louboutin Marquise Spiked Clutches.
Jessica attended the gala wearing (and on the arm of) Tory Burch, while Miranda went with and wore Michael Kors, two American designers who don’t pursue the punk aesthetic in the least. Both did a decent job selecting their gowns (if you look closer, Jessica’s lace gown is actually leather, which is pretty punk) without straying too far from punk’s aesthetic tenets, given the designers they were working with, and they chose more daring accessories to set off the look. The Marquise clutch is a solid choice – functional, despite its long, sharp spikes at each end. Miranda opted for a sleek silver python version, while Jessica went with punk favorite black.
