The Met Ball's "punk" theme was no doubt a confusing one for many of last night's attendees. How, exactly, does one make a five-figure gown feel rebellious? With equally spendy diamond-encrusted ear cuffs, of course! Bonus points if you draw attention to your accessories by sweeping your hair back to create the illusion of a half-shaven head.

Like Sienna Miller, who paired her no-piercing-required diamond ear jewelry with a no-cutting-required Skrillex 'do.

And Cara Delevingne, who must have planned her outfit with Sienna. "wut u wearing 2nite??" "idk ear cuff?"

Mad Men's Jessica Pare chose inner ear jewelry. An inner ear wing, specifically.

While Nicole Richie really took advantage of her ear's real estate by turning it into a stegosaurus's back.

Elle Fanning went for a zig-zag ear bar, which her eyeshadow seemed to be pointing to.

And Linda Evangelista hid diamonds in her ear as if they were Easter eggs. As punks do.
