Our biggest issue with Monday night's punk themed Met Ball? So many celebrities didn't know what punk was! To kick things off, the evening's host, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour, wore a pink floral Chanel gown. Gwyneth Paltrow also went pink instead of punk, while model Kate Upton looked glam instead of grunge. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian was ready for a garden party, Ashley Olsen preferred hippie-chic, Uma Thurman seemed Oscar-ready, and Hailee Steinfeld looked nearly prim. Thankfully, a handful of stars attending actually knew who the Sex Pistols were, and paid tribute to the great punk icons of the '70s and early '80s. Here are the most authentic punk looks of the evening with their famous counterparts. By Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion & Beauty Editor
