Flashy Jewels at the 2015 Met Gala
If one annual event were to receive the award for being “the” affair that attracts the most elaborate, intriguing, and unique getups, it would be the annual Costume Institute Gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, otherwise known as the Met Gala.
It is during this event that the stars come out in some of the most surprising outfits complete with lavish and sophisticated jewels. Each year’s gala has a theme, and this year’s theme was “China: Through the Looking Class,” which led to especially interesting clothing and accessory choices. Here is a look at some of the more noticeable and colorful diamond and gemstone jewelry.
Sienna Miller’s wardrobe and jewelry choices were far from traditional, which is exactly why it made her stand out as one of the best dressed celebrities of the evening. Wearing a red Thakoon ensemble with an unusual texture and black tassels, the actress managed to match her earrings flawlessly by choosing a pair of black tassel earrings.
The British beauty donned a stunning periwinkle custom Prada gown and cape, which matched her Anna Hu statement earrings perfectly. The earrings displayed beautiful diamonds and sapphires.
What better way to complete a sensual black and red chiffon gown than with a pair of floral-inspired diamond earrings and ring? That is precisely what the exotically beautiful Olivia Munn pulled off at the gala, making her one of the most elegantly dressed guests at the event.
Not only was this distinctive actress’s dress extremely unique and fitting for the evening’s Chinese theme, but her jewels were as well. Chloe’s strapless dress with sleeves was Asian inspired and colorful and went perfectly with her black Cartier choker, displaying a large blue sapphire surrounded by white diamonds.
Alicia also stunned in blue jewels, appropriately complementing her deep blue getup. Her jewelry consisted of a sapphire encrusted dragonfly ring and matching sapphire drop earrings.
The celebrities really pulled out all the stops this year with each star outdoing the next. As usual, Beyoncé shocked with a barely-there gown as did Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian West. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a show-stopping headpiece and Anne Hathaway wore a gold gown with a hood! All in all the attire and jewels at this gala did not disappoint. After an event like this one, it is hard to imagine future events coming close to competing with such originality and beauty.
