If you're anyone who's anyone in the fashion world you're totally obsessed with the Met Gala. Think about it. Once a year, A listers come together to rock the latest and the edgiest in design trends. It's an out of the box experience for the visual aesthetic, and we’re literally obsessed. Of course, we’re now coming to you with our own personal favorites and inspirational tips today.
Generally speaking we can't get enough of no holds barred fashion. At the Met Gala, attendees really get to embrace their look and creativity 100%.
The Met Gala has been deemed by Vogue, “the world’s most original red carpet fashion.” Let’s just say, this year we were not disappointed.
This season, it was all about the metallics. Here are a few looks that made us green with envy. (Ok, just kidding. We don't really get jealous. But that doesn't mean we can't covet.)
Beyonce totally slayed in this gown. To say we're obsessed is totally an understatement. She looked like a queen, and rightfully so. The gold, silver, and champagne tones in this ensemble really brought out the overall glamorous theme of the evening. This is a color palette that is literally flattering on almost anyone. P.S. It was rumored that each pearl on this latex and pearl ensemble cost upwards of $8,000.
Confession. We love Kylie Jenner, and we're not going to apologize for it. Sure, maybe she "overdoes" it sometimes; if you catch our drift. But, at the end of the day, she's a style savvy teen, and you've got to respect that. We loved how she turned heads with her classy ensemble, simple face paint, and polished 'do.
After reviewing our favorite looks, we asked ourselves, "What #JJ piece totally screams Met Gala?" Honestly, the decision wasn't all together that tough.
We sifted through a handful of front runners, and decided to award the diamond choker collection. This three statement necklaces are our picks for Met Gala Inspired Piece of 2016.
Every award show, we pick a handful of #JJ pieces that accurately represent the theme of that evening. We chose these diamond choker necklaces because of the following.
1. They scream Queen, but in a classy, "I don't have to work for my spotlight" type way.
I mean really - that's something we all shoot for, right? To be the center of attention in a totally casual, calm, and cool way. Almost like you were born into a spotlight. (Obviously, right?)
2. They're the perfect balance between bold and beautiful.
Sure, they turn heads. But, they're also not gaudy. They don't look cheap, tacky, or costume.
3. They're made out of diamonds.
I mean yea. That's really all we have to say about that. Diamonds are, and always will be, a girl's best friend.
Now, just take a few minutes to feast your eyes on these beautiful diamond chokers. If you can’t get them out of your mind, #sorrynotsorry. Just know we are all in this together. Every single girl on our #JJ style team weeps over these heartbreaking diamonds.
Inspired by the Met Gala, let’s leave you with one parting piece of style advice.
Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a d*mn.
