Met Gala 2013: Does Taylor Swift achieve punk status with pink hair and mesh cutouts?

Taylor Swift was definitely one of those stars, but we'll forgive her, because we've seen her attempts at punk and they leave a lot to be desired.

Swift was gorgeous in a J Mendel dress and clutch, Givenchy shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Her gown had some major mesh cutouts -- definitely more daring than Taylor's usual awards show sparkle.

She added some unexpected cotton-candy pink color and rough texture to her hair, and gave photographers a moody pout to fit the evening's theme.
