Last May 6, 2013, the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrated its annual Costume Institute Gala also known as the Met Gala which was graced by the most fashionable personalities in the realms of fashion, entertainment, music, and sports. This year’s gala exhibition commemorated the contributions of punk to the fashion industry. The theme, “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”, definitely brought edgy and yet stylish fashion to the much-anticipated affair as guests and models were dressed in the most ambitious frock as they walked down the red carpet.
One of the chic personalities who rocked her punk outfit so well at the event was designer extraordinaire, Rachel Roy, who arrived at the event with first time Met Gala attendee, Stacy Keibler. The esteemed designer worked closely with Brad Goreski, Stacy’s stylist, in the design and creation of the elegant sheer-sleeved mini dress that the actress wore specially for the star-studded fete. To complete the look, Stacy then accessorized the Roy creation with a stunning work of art from the luxury jewelry house of Jacob & Co. namely, a pair of 14-carat round cut diamond earrings. Rachel Roy shares the same fondness for Jacob & Co. masterpieces as she topped off her elegantly stylish black jumpsuit with alluring items from the renowned jewelry brand. For the Met Gala, Rachel wore two chunky chains featuring 18 carats of black-plated gold, a black diamond cross with over 10 carats of black diamonds, a four-finger claw ring which boasts over 20 carats of white diamonds from the brand’s Feroce Collection, and a three-carat diamond stud earrings enclosed in micro-pave diamonds.
A handful of celebrities who attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s red carpet event chose to accessorize their outfits with luscious jewelry pieces designed by Jeweler to the Stars himself, Jacob Arabo. Take for example actress Julianne Hough who looked unbelievably stunning in her full-skirted tulle dress which featured a spider-web pattern from UK retailing brand, Topshop. The ensemble looked perfectly fashionable and accessorized with Jacob Arabo custom-made spider ring featuring a black Tahitian pearl, a white pearl, and diamonds as well as a lovely pair of three prong Martini setting round cut black diamond stud earrings. British actress, Ashley Madekwe was also glammed up wearing her custom-made Topshop silver gown which was then punked up with a pair of custom-made Jacob Arabo diamond cross pendant earrings with rose cut diamonds surrounded by micro-pave diamonds. The beautiful stars, Diane Kruger and Carine Rotifield, share the same fondness for Jacob & Co. jewelry pieces as they graced the red carpet wearing the wonderful creations designed by founder, Jacob Arabo. Diane was captivating as she completed her look with a pair of customized palladium wing clip-on earrings, while Carine was undeniably alluring wearing a cushion-cut diamond ring with over 10 carats of diamonds as one of her glamorous accessories for the event.
