Emmy Rossum: Starstruck at the 2013 Met Gala

Posted Tuesday May 7, 2013 3:44 PM GMT

Joining a bevy of fancily dressed celebs, Emmy Rossum attended the 2013 Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 6).

The "Shameless" star looked stunning in a sleeveless semi-sheer light gray gown with her hair twisted and piled on top of her head. As she posed for pics on the red carpet, the 26-year-old actress tweeted, "I just met Amare Stoudemire on the red carpet at the #metball!!! I couldn't stop gushing of my #Knicks love!"

With co-chairs Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, Riccardo Tisci, and Anna Wintour, the 2013 Met Costume Gala is poised to be the biggest and brightest so far.

Of the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” theme, Metropolitan Museum of Art Director and CEO Thomas P. Campbell told press, “Punk’s signature mixing of references was fueled by artistic developments such as Dada and postmodernism, so it makes sense to present this exhibition in a museum that also shows the broader output of those movements. Indeed, that dialogue between art and fashion is what makes The Costume Institute so singular. Projects like this don’t happen without sponsorship, and we greatly appreciate the generosity of Moda Operandi, and its co-founders Aslaug Magnusdottir and Lauren Santo Domingo.”
