Beyoncé Named Honorary Chair of the Met Ball

Beyoncé's wearing a lot of hats this year—H&M campaign star, HBO filmmaker, Super Bowl performer—and on May 6, she'll add another, as honorary chair of the Met Ball. Considering not only her workload but also the exhibit's theme, "Punk: From Chaos to Couture," she might be a bit of an unlikely addition to the host committee.

Unlike existing chairs Rooney Mara and Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, "punk" isn't really a word most people associate with Beyoncé, whose fierceness comes less from plaids and bedhead and more from lipstick and feathers. But then again, while she might not seem like the most obvious fit with the theme, what can't Beyoncé do? (And does this mean she'll be wearing something more subversive, shredded and shocking to May's big event than her diva-ish gowns of years past?)
