THEME: “Rock Style”
Some people thought it was bratty when Tyler (the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler) and McCartney (one of Paul McCartney’s five kids) turned up in homemade-looking T-shirts that read “Rock Royalty.” But there was more to McCartney’s design concept.

BC: “This really works because they’re young. The moment you put a ballgown and
dowager jewelry on young women, it backfires. This punk look goes back to Vivienne Westwood [when the designer worked with bands like the Sex Pistols and Bow Wow Wow]. It punk and it cuts through the frivolity to make a statement. And it’s the moment the couture T-shirt craze was born.”

MR: “This was poking fun at the whole concept of Met Ball. But you have to be
them — real rock royalty — to get away with it. If I could still wear Doc Martens, I would. Now I’d look like a fashion victim.”
