The Met Gala is one event on the social calendar that blows up our newsfeeds, highlighting look after look from some of the fashion’s elite. 2017 was no different, though we missed a few mainstays who never fail to wow us with their looks. While we were unable to marvel at the wonders that are Lady Gaga and Beyoncé this year, the line-up was anything but disappointing.
While some, like Rihanna, were able to channel the theme of the night that was based on the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons exhibition, others chose to go down the road that has been travelled often. L’Officiel has selected a list of the best dressed but as we all know, the devil is all in the details. From Tiffany & Co. to Chopard, take a look at the standout accessories that made its debut on the red carpet.
Adriana Lima wore a black Alberta Ferretti gown and selected to wear earrings from Chopard featuring 5.85-carats of brilliant-cut diamonds set in 18k white gold from the “Imperiale Collection.”
Actress Lupita Nyong’o chose a coral organza chiffon strapless sheath gown. Embellished with hand cut organza flowers across the neckline, cascading down the back. Coral satin clutch and sandals accented with gold and stone embellishments from Prada.
