Lights! Camera! Fashion! The jewelry and fashion worlds collided this past Monday at the 2015 Met gala, Christening the Costume Institute’s China: Through the Looking Glass fashion exhibition. From Beyonce’s full frontal crystal adorned ‘gown’ to SJP’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) flame throwing headdress, this ball seemed more like a nudist colony-meets-offensively-tacky-Chinese New Year bash. Did Ms. Wintour mistaken you for one of the Real Housewives of New York and turn down your $100K request to buy a table? Well, that makes two of us. But no worries, we’ve got you covered on the top jewelry trends from fashion’s biggest Superbowl soiree…
While blingy rings and statement pendants seemed to be a thing from this past red carpet season, sparkly arm parties were a hot ticket item at the ball. SJP rocked a bunch of boho-style bangles while good ol’ Katie Holmes played it safe with an icy trail of sparklers igniting her wrist and refining her look.
Everyone’s favorite ’90s throwback was practically a red carpet prerequisite. Chloe Moretz, Selena Gomez and the like, seemed to be sporting delicate black chokers. Even for super A-lists like Rihanna who trailed along in a breathtaking fur-trimmed sun yellow cape, chokers were the perfect way to illuminate her neckline, finishing off her dramatic look with a delicate sparkle.
Tasseled drops were a fave amongst Bee Shaffer and Lizzy Caplan. While drops may be a great way to draw attention to one’s face, it’s the wispy movement and structure of their tasseled cousin that adds an extra dose of glitz and glamor.
Matching earrings are a must, which Amal and Solange proved like no other! Both chose to wear more avant-garde and edgier designs which is why chic jewels were the perfect fit for what could have been one potential style conundrum.
Top Color: Red
We LOVED the red trend especially on Helen! With her laser cut-out gown and medallion drops, Helen Mirren slayed the scene in this incredible color. Mirren’s look was the perfect balance of Haute Couture without overbearing.
Even with Rihanna’s never ending silk trail and other fashion spectacles, the sheer drama were in those see-through ankle scrapers worn by JLo, Kim Kardashian West and Beyonce. The good thing about wearing next to nothing and being decked in crystals is, no need to wear jewelry right? Was it too much or too little? You vote!
