Lena Dunham's dog swallowed a safety pin during her Met Ball fitting, with the actress joking her pooch's actions fit with the "punk" theme perfectly.

The 26-year-old actress was one of many stylish stars to grace New York City on Monday night to celebrate the museum's latest exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture.

Lena sported a custom-made black floor-length gown by design house Erdem - with designer Erdem Moralioğlu accompanying the star on the red carpet.

The Girls star says her pet pooch added to the anarchist theme when she tried on the dress for the first time.

"My dog ate a safety pin during the fitting, which is punk!" she revealed on the red carpet.

Lena reportedly didn’t meet with Erdem during the making of the lace gown, instead speaking about the dress via Skype chats.

It seems the couture designer was pleased with the results though, with the official fashion house's Twitter page gushing about Lena's fabulous red carpet look.

"@lenadunham looks amazing wearing a custom @erdemrtw dress to attend the Met Ball with Erdem last night (sic)," the post read.

Erdem also complimented Alexa Chung on her Met Ball look, with the model-and-TV presenter also choosing to wear a dress from the label's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.

The brunette star turned heads in the black midi frock, which boasted sheer panelling and an edgy jagged hem.

Erdem took to Twitter to gush: "@alexa_chung wearing an @erdemrtw Autumn/Winter 2013 dress to the Met Ball. So beautiful (sic)."

Alexa shared her excitement on the social networking site ahead of the event, writing: " MET BALL tonight :-) (sic)."
