the met gala 2021: brilliant and glowingAnna S.
It was nothing but fashion’s biggest night. The stars on the Red carpet were shining brighter than the stars in the dark night sky. The Met Gala 2021 was in full swing.
After the long break – the Met Gala was cancelled in 2020 and then delayed from May till September – this sparkling Red carpet event finally came back to cap off New York Fashion Week.
The night full of extravagant beauty and diamonds sparkling on their proud owners, can anything be more exciting and intriguing?
Let’s take a closer look at the lavish jewelry at the Met Gala 2021. Spoiler: we have many pics – too many, in fact!
It seems that this song is as old as time – diamonds are the girls’ (and boys’) best friends. 2021 Gala just proved it once again. Diamonds are still the favorite stones of stars on the Red carpet. Billie Eilish – the co-chair of the event – even channelled Marilyn Monroe singing “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” wearing multiple rings and bracelets from Cartie, while Rihanna was dazzling in over 267 carats of Bulgari diamonds, including at least three necklaces.
Cynthia Erivo paired her custom Moschino look with an array of diamond jewelry from Roberto Coin’s Animalier collection. She was spotted wearing the jeweler’s Dragon Collar Necklace, Dragon Diamond Ring and Dragon Diamond Cuff.
The boys are not far behind either. Timothée Chalamet complemented his Haider Ackermann custom white suit with Cartier fine jewelry, including the Vintage Cartier New York Cliquet pin and star brooch that were attached to his trousers. He also wore the Cartier Maillon Panthère ring and a Cartier Love ring in 18-karat white gold.
Troye Sivan accented his Altu by Joseph Altuzarra look with a Cartier Essential Lines necklace with diamonds and a Cartier love ring – again, with diamonds. Singer Giveon paired his look with a Bulgari Serpenti necklace and a strand of pearls with delicate GIV letter charms – and he nailed it!
Margaret Qualley was the living epitome of beauty and elegance. From head to toe she was covered in diamond jewels from Chanel high jewelry line.
Amanda Gorman chose a custom Vera Wang cobalt blue mini dress embellished with crystals – and didn’t even think to stop! She wore Chopard in her hair and crystals on her face as well as a diamond ring and diamond and sapphire earrings in a nod to the Statue of Liberty.
Yara Shahidi in a custom embroidered Dior dress selected Cartier Sixiéme High Jewelry Transitional necklace that features white and yellow diamonds as well as Cartier High Jewelry diamond earrings.
Lupita Nyong’o paired De Beers diamonds and Versace denim dress with an elegant pear-shaped diamond pendant, which created a truly chic look. And Gabrielle Union looked stunning in a Messika diamond choker with pear and marquise cut diamonds.
Anok Yai wore an Ana Khouri tourmaline Paraiba necklace, paired with a diamond bracelet and rings. It’s been mentioned that all the gems were ethically and responsibly sourced, which added a conscious touch to her Oscar de la Renta fashion look.
