The 2012 Met Gala

Where there is an event, there are celebrities, and where there are celebrities there are stunning dresses and fabulous white and color diamond jewelry.

The recent 2012 Met Gala was no exception.  The stars came out to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute in honor of Miuccia Prada, complete with designer, colorful, and embellished gowns, and glittering diamond jewelry to top it off.  Some of the celebrities that stood out were Sofia Vergara, as usual, Kristen Bell, Hillary Swank, Scarlet Johansson, and Leighton Meester.

The voluptuous Sofia Vergara wore a metallic gown that hugged her curves. The Marchesa gown was paired with a Harry Winston diamond feather ring, lily cluster bangles, and three-stone drop earrings.

Kristen Bell was one of the many stars dressed in bright spring colors.  Her choice was a tangerine orange Tommy Hilfiger & vintage Van Cleef & Arpels gown.  As a result, her jewelry was rather simplistic with chunky gold stud earrings and bangles as her accessories.

Hillary Swank truly looked majestic in her high-necked, wine-red Michael Kor’s gown. The Fred Leighton diamond pendant earrings that she wore complemented the dress perfectly, and the 1940s citrine and ruby cocktail ring went well with the color scheme.

Though Scarlett Johansson had the right intentions with her gown, the results were less than impressive.  A pair of Fred Leighton antique cushion-cut drop earrings accompanied her Dolce & Gabbana nude colored gown.

Leighton Messter was a sea of yellow gold, wearing a gold gown and accessorized with Harry Winston radiant-cut yellow diamond stud earrings, a yellow gold and yellow diamond bracelet, and a yellow sapphire ring.

It was quite the fashion show at this year’s Met Gala, from crazy dresses to phenomenal jewelry, we saw it all.  How can we forget the newly engaged couple, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake? Dressed in a simple yet elegant dress, the focus at this event was on Jessica’s new engagement ring, rather than he gown.  Yet another spectacular event is behind us and we eagerly anticipate the ones yet to come.
