With a theme like 'Punk: Chaos to Couture,' it was easy to understand why some outrageous, out-of-the-box outfits were omnipresent at last night's Met Ball (May 6). That underlying theme invited celebs and stars to attempt to be edgy or over-the-top -- and although some succeeded, but some didn't, largely due to interpreting the concept too literally.

Many stars who are usual red carpet sure bets totally missed the mark. Here's our recap of the night's worst.

Kim Kardashian:

The mother-to-be-continued her string of fails while el prego. Dressed in neck-to-toe floral, her fussy Riccardo Tisci dress looked like your grandmother's shower curtain repurposed into a dress with tacky matching gloves and shoes.

Kristen Stewart:

With her signature red carpet scowl in place, the actress went a bit too casual in a crimson, too-short Stella McCartney pantsuit. The matchy-matchy eye makeup resembled a case of couture conjunctivitis.

Miley Cyrus:

This mesh Marc Jacobs mimicked a giant fishnet stocking and the singer/actress ended up a tryhard while attempting to prove how punk rock she is. She also appeared to have used an entire bottle of styling product in her pointy locks.

Gwyneth Paltrow:

Eschewing punk for pink, Gwynnie covered up in a bold Valentino. She has a killer bod, but elected to hide it under lots and lots of material. It was ultimately dowdy and did absolutely nothing for her.

Cameron Diaz:

The actress channelled the quirky Tilda Swinton in this blue-purple Stella McCartney column dress with a cape. Cam usually seems like a party girl who knows how to have a good time, but this frock was all doom and gloom, and ultimately sombre. It didn't look like any fun to wear.

Ashley Olsen:

While she and her twin Mary-Kate win design awards for their work with The Row, Ashley Olsen continues to astound us with strange choices. This floaty orange flock appeared costumey, and we're not sure that's what she was going for. All the extra fabric made her look like she was sprouting wings and about to fly.

Beyonce:

One of the night's biggest letdowns. Beyonce's overaccesorized, black Givenchy gown had a belt, extra long gloves, gold embroidering, matching boots and a casual belt. It was loud and disconnected, and none of the pieces fit to form a cohesive look. No bueno.
