Tiffany, Harry Winston, Cartier, de Grisogono: here are the jewels worn by celebrities at the Met Gala held in New York ♦ ︎
It always happens on the first Monday in May. And it has become one of the most popular social events: the Met Gala is the equivalent of the Los Angeles Oscars, only held in New York and focused on fashion. In any case, the Met Gala is the occasion to show off the most extraordinary clothes and jewels, capable of attracting the attention of photographers and, obviously, of the public. This is what happened punctually even in 2019. Here, then, are some of the most interesting appearances, from Lady Gaga to Katy Perry.
But, of course, the Met Gala is above all a fundraiser for charity. It is organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the money collected is used to support its activities dedicated to fashion and costume. The event is organized by the director of Vogeu Usa, Anna Wintour, by a special committee. Participating in the dinner is expensive: tickets can cost up to $ 30,000, which goes up to 300,000 for companies (for a table), but even this is not enough: the guests are personally selected by Anna Wintour.
This year’s guest list included celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Harry Styles, Lupita Nyong’o, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry. If you are amazed by the clothes chosen, know that every year a theme is chosen for the show at the Met that follows the dinner, and that it is also the code for the party. This year the theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion: difficult to interpret.
And the jewels? Many, gorgeous, surprising. In particular those of Harry Winston, Tiffany and de Grisogono, which you see on this page. Margherita Donato
