Jennifer Lopez clearly doesn’t scare easily.

Just one day after her music video shoot in Florida was shut down due to gunshots fired nearby, the singer was spotted out in New York rocking a daring leopard print gown alongside her beau Casper Smart.

The animal design was indicative of her fierce spirit as she quickly recovered from the recent shock just in time to attend the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala on Monday night.

Moving on: After shots were fired nearby her music video shoot, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart headed out to the 2013 Met Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, on Monday

J.Lo pinned her tresses into a punk-inspired faux hawk, featuring a pompadour reminiscent of the 1980s New Wave style.

 

The hair sculpture was a fitting choice for the Punk: Chaos to Couture themed bash.

The 43-year-old’s dress was equally courageous as it trailed a dangerously long train of leopard spotted fabric.

She famously played Batman’s arch-nemesis, Poison Ivy, in the 1997 action movie Batman and Robin.

And Uma Thurman appeared to have gained inspiration for her stunning red carpet ensemble at Monday night’s Met Ball from none other than her former alter-ego.

Appearing to shun the ‘Punk: Chaos To Couture’ theme for the 2013 event, the 43-year-old actress opted for a look of timeless elegance as she posed up a storm at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Featuring a stunning off-shoulder design, the figure-hugging olive green number – which was the same colour as Posion Ivy’s iconic costume – perfectly complemented Uma’s flawless porcelain skin.

Accessorising with gold drop earrings and matching cuff bracelets, the actress let her incredible gown take centre stage by keeping her hair simple and pulled off her face into a high ponytail.

The Australian head-turner garnished her look with glossy curls, oxblood lipstick and black nail polish.

Meanwhile, Karlie Kloss, 20, revealed a less substantial amount of flesh in an ethereal floral printed gown with slightly sheer sleeves.

She was joined by Sports Illustrated star Kate Upton, 20, who flashed a toned stem in a sleeveless dress with a gathered waist.

The gown’s aqua hue perfectly complemented the sun-kissed blonde’s complexion.

Likewise, Lily Aldridge glowed in an apricot confection teamed with tangerine lips as she entered the event with her husband, Kings of Leon vocalist Caleb Followill.

But it was British newcomer Cara Delevingne who most faithfully tailored her look to the gala’s theme as she sauntered down the carpet in a long-sleeved, backless gown with a spiked bodice.

After an almost complete career hiatus during the marriage, Katie is certainly back having done a stage show and also she currently has three films in production.

She has been filming the movie since the begging of the month alongside its other star, Canadian actor Luke Kirby, who is relatively unknown outside of independent film circles.

In the Spike Lee production, Katie stars as a manic depressive poet who falls pregnant to a manic depressive rapper.

The film is set to release in 2014.

As she was seen getting into her chauffeured car to head to the soiree, her halterneck gown displayed her lithe frame.

 

Katie’s not known for her daring fashion choices on the red carpet.

She stood out for all right reasons at the annual Met Ball on Monday night.

And Ashley Greene managed to pull off yet another stylish look as she swapped her black and gold Marchesa gown for a curve-enhancing, wraparound red minidress for the afterparty.

While most of the stars kept on their red carpet outfits as they left the The Metropolitan Museum of Art and headed to the Boom Boom Room, the 26-year-old decided to change.

Stacy Keibler decided not to change, showing up to the bar in her studded Rachel Roy minidress, as did Lily Cole who kept on her Vivienne Westwood creation.

While the party at Boom Boom Room was going on, the Standard Hotel hosted an unofficial bash, with stars including Rooney Mara, Nicole Ritchie and Chris Brown stopping by.
