The Met Gala, one of the year’s most fashionable events, was held Monday May 1st, 2017. Every year Anna Wintour sets the stage with a tight guest list and dress code. This year, the theme was avant garde, inspired by Rei Kawakubo, a designer being honored at the event. The stars didn’t hold back when styling for this event, and they didn’t forget to accessorize with a few fantastic watches!
While we couldn’t keep our eyes off some of the extravagant outfits worn by stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Chrisssy Teigen, we couldn’t help but spot a few watches!
Serena Williams and Audemars Piguet
One of our favorites of the night was worn by tennis superstar, Serena Williams. She stunned onlookers in a beautiful emerald green Versace gown and complementing Haute Joaillerie Diamond Outrage. This blinged out watch is a part of the high jewellery trilogy from Audemars Piguet and followed the theme of the night focusing on the bold and boundary-pushing style of designer Kawakubo.
The Diamond Outrage is a white gold cuff with varying spikes covered in brilliant cut and baguette cut diamonds set in an invisible setting showing off the skill of Audemars Piguet while showing off the diamonds. In total, there are 9,923 brilliant cut diamonds and 354 baguette cut diamonds, totaling 65 carats.
Rihanna and Chopard
Wearing a stunning, layered gown designed by honoree Kawakubo, Rihanna accessorized with jewels from her “Rihanna Loves Chopard” High Jewelry collection, co-designed with the brand. You can spot floral earrings, multiple rings and of course, a diamond encrusted automatic watch. The Chopard on her wrist is a floral lace, 31.76 carat diamond and 18k white gold watch, putting the final touches on her avant garde dress.
Presley Gerber and Omega
While you may not immediately recognize his name, you may know his mother and Omega Ambassador: Cindy Crawford. The 17-year-old wore a standout royal blue velvet jacket with colorful pocket square. Spotted on his wrist was a classic Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra with blue dial accenting his blue ensemble and blue carpet. He even shared his process of choosing the perfect timepiece on Instagram.
Bella Hadid and Bulgari
Model, Bella Hadid, was spotted wearing two Serpenti High Jewellery diamond bracelets and ear studs from Bulgari. The Serpenti collection from Bulgari consists of dazzling bracelets, necklaces, earrings and watches inspired by the seductive serpent dating back to Greek and Roman mythology.
