The theme of this year’s Met Gala was an homage to Comme des Garçons’ conceptual fashion designer Rei Kawakubo. Accordingly, all attendees were challenged to pull off an avant-garde look at the red carpet.
Some celebrities managed this task more successfully than others. However, since most of the dresses were a bit over the top, the jewellery was mainly kept relatively quiet – and primarily coalesced around a few looks featuring with either chokers, long dazzling earrings or fingers stacked with statement rings.
Haily Balwin pulled off an amazing look with a custom Swarovski-studded Gigi Burris veil, diamond choker and earrings.
A noteworthy and interesting observation was however that brooches made a comeback this year.
Keri Russell with Matthew Rhys by her side wore a David Webb Heraldic Brooch and pink tourmaline ring.
Even the men went for the brooches this year. Here The Weekend, with girlfriend Selena Gomez (in Tiffany & Co.), wearing a diamond brooch.
BVLGARI was the big winner on the red carpet, grazing a number of stars from Céline Dion, Diane Kruger, Lily Aldridge, Bella Hadid to Elizabeth Chambers.
Some stars still gave the jewellery special attention, Cassie for instance, wore a custom-made diamond ear piece by Indonesian designer Rinaldy Yunardi.
Supermodel Cara Delavigne who recently shaved her head was almost impossible to recognise. Cara had painted her short hair silver and dotted it with tiny crystals, sure to make an impression.
So was Katy Perry in a slim black dress that appeared bejewelled in golden chains.
