The Met Gala is a glamorous arena for high fashion; the event of the season, the Oscars of fashion. With the theme noted as "Punk: Chaos to Couture" we expected nothing but chain-wearing, lip-piercing, eye-lining counterculture movements of the seventies and eighties. Even the evening's hair and make-up featured a predominance of punk touches.
As stated by the Met curator, Andrew Bolton, "Fashion is to provoke, to confront, to react."
Here are our top 10 looks of the night...

While a jewel is usually the star of an accessory, a piece’s links can steal the show. Paul Smith’s “Love You” bracelet is held together with gold colored letters, including a stunning burgundy enamel 'O.’ From its recently updated Serpenti collection, BVLGARI features an incredible snake-inspired bracelet held together with links made of pink gold and grey mother of pearl with round brilliant cut diamonds.
The Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2013 collection is inspired by the poetic decorations of the Art Nouveau period. Nature and its elements become graphic symbols that Roberto Cavalli transforms into prints which frame the body. The prints are designed entirely by hand and are punctuated with lace details, furrowed by high slits, and enriched by leather cut-outs. The animal print backgrounds are superimposed with stylized elements of plant life. Layers of mousseline create a fluid silhouette which slides on the body. Precious metallic and glass embroideries dissolve at the bottom of the dresses, and alternate with lace that is cut and reconstructed, or leather that is sewed, incised, and decorated with appliqués. The dresses in silk knit, lie close to the body and are illuminated by crystal embroidery. Pants in lightest mousseline allow the leg to show through. The colors range from total white to total black, passing through blush, lime and apricot.
On the runway the new Cavalli twin-set is composed of the gown and the Hera bag in matching prints. Like the mythological goddess protector of femininity, the new Hera bag guards the secrets, desires and seduction of the person who wears it. Made of printed leather or black python, and created in two sizes.
For the evening, there is the small ‘luxury box’, in gold or silver metal, decorated with crystals and colored gems.
Pumps and high-heeled sandals with slight double platforms: anatomical and sharply pointed.
The limited edition Hedera sunglasses are created with the most sophisticated gold craftsmanship. The refined and sinuous lines, the precious materials and the floral detailing uncover the exotic charisma of Art Nouveau style decorations.
Donna Karan New York’s spring accessories feature Stephen Jones’ sculpted Lucite headpieces and cuffs. The collection also includes etched mirror clutches and Lucite–handled woven bags. To top it all off, suede straps and knotted ankle–straps atop the luminosity of the etched Lucite wedges.
