May 7, 2013 -- New York, NY. Alicia Quarles of E! news dazzles us on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute spring 2013 Gala benefit, wearing a show-stopping red silk gown by Zac Posen and a stunning Dome Diamond ring from Dannini Fine Jewelry’s Couture Collection. The sparkler is comprised of 5.38 carats of D flawless, brilliant-cut diamonds set in 18kt white gold. The Met Gala is the opening celebration of the highly-anticipated exhibit organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art called PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The exhibit will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s and its continuing influence today. The event is referred to as the Super Bowl of red carpets. Unlike the more mainstream events like the Oscars or the Golden Globes, this is a night for fashion's brightest stars to take risks and flex their style muscle. Celebrities associated with this event are Academy Award© nominated actress Rooney Mara; Lauren Santo Domingo, Co-Founder of Moda Operandi; Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of Givenchy; and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue - with Beyoncé as Honorary Chair.
