She might want to first exercise some self-control, as in putting down the heroin needle. We wouldn’t know this tramp if she walked past us, so obviously she needs a way to get some attention.
At Monday night’s Costume Institute gala, where the theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture, many thought the evening – and exhibition itself – delivered a sanitized version of punk’s anarchic world.
But not Abbey Lee Kersaw. The model used the benefit to make her own political statement, in what was arguably the most punk thing that happened at the benefit.
Lifting up her custom-made Rag & Bone dress, the 25-year-old Australian, currently ranked number 12 in the world’s Top 50 models, revealed the words ‘gun control’ written in block letters on her torso.
The protest of sorts, in support of gun control in the U.S. where the model lives when she’s not in her hometown, Sydney, coyly cemented her stance on the current debate.
Captured by Just Jared at the Met Gala’s after party, at the Standard Hotel, Miss Kershaw danced alongside her Mad Max: Fury Road co-stars Nicholas Hoult and Riley Keough, as well as JustJared.com‘s Jared Eng, Kate Bosworth, fellow Australian model, Miranda Kerr.
Miss Kershaw, who is famous for her rebellious aesthetic, wore a Rag & Bone silver iridescent bias cut slip dress for the evening’s benefit.
