What's Hot / Women's
Punk: Chaos to Couture

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...

Jewelry
Hope Collection

Following the successful launch of the limited edition Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Bracelet, the House of Harry Winston is pleased to continue the gift of giving in a new, charming way.

Launching spring 2013, the Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Charm features a sleek white gold and engraved mother-of-pearl design set with a delicate Winston diamond at the center, and can be worn as either a pendant, or as part of a charm bracelet.
 
The Harry Winston Hope Collection represents Harry Winston’s longstanding commitment to supporting local communities, a tradition that began with the company’s founder Mr. Harry Winston. From 1949 – 1953, Harry Winston organized an exhibition known as “The Court of Jewels,” which toured to key cities across America raising money for local charitable causes. At the heart of the exhibition was the Hope Diamond, a 45.52 carat deep blue diamond, considered to be one of the rarest and most famous diamonds in the world. In 1958, Mr. Winston donated the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. as a gift to the world.
 
Inspired by Mr. Winston’s generosity, in November 2010, Harry Winston, Inc. launched a new philanthropic platform, The Harry Winston Brilliant Futures™ Charitable Program. Within this program, the company remains dedicated to supporting leading organizations around the globe that strive to remove barriers for disadvantaged youth to obtain a quality education and the skills necessary to be successful in life; provide access to cultural and artistic enrichment; and enable healthy futures.
 
The Harry Winston Hope Collection is available at The Shops at Crystals.
