Last night saw one of the biggest events of the fashion calendar unfold in New York City as the Met Gala (also known as the 'fashion oscars') got under way. With guests including Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyonce this was always going to be a flamboyant affair with an exciting mix of celebrity style - and we're happy to report that there was a wealth of fabulous footwear on display as well.

Celebs and their stylists left no stone unturned in their quest for the most attention-grabbing dresses, hairpieces, make-up and heels at last night's event, which had at its heart a focus on the punk style of the 1980s. With a brief named 'Punk: Chaos to Couture' some guests went all-out in embracing the look with thigh-length tartan boots, dramatic make-up extreme jewellery and crazy head-dresses (Katy Perry even rocked up in a crown!)

Here, we're focusing on the footwear - and as you'd expect from a punk-themed event there were plenty of spikes, studs and pointed toes on display.
