There were some real fashion statements at this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala but it wasn’t just gowns making the crowds gawp, some outrageous fashion accessories made an appearance too.


Christina Ricci’s Thakoon dress was a bold move, and when we say bold we mean that the bow that adorned her dress was gargantuan. Similarly, the excessive feathers and ruffles on Alexander McQueen’s glitzy white creation left little room for the Florence and The Machine singer to accessorise with jewellery but our Sama Sparkle Silver and Clear Crystal Charm Bracelets would have peeked out nicely from one of those dramatic bell sleeves.


However, some style successes shone through, particularly Coco Rocha’s Givenchy pants suit teamed with a pretty pink bustier. She was accessorised beautifully from head to toe with pink dip-dyed hair and a pair of coordinating Sergio Rossi’s on her feet. We’ve got the sterling silver bracelet that would have finished the lovely model’s look to perfection - our bright and bold Santi Single Sparkle My Guardian Angel Charm Bracelet in Pink.


The award for statement piece of the evening most definitely went to a male trendsetter this time. The Annie Haak Designs team simply loves that US fashion designer Marc Jacobs graced the Met’s Red Carpet in what can only be described as a loose fitting LLD (Little Lace Dress) with contrasting white boxers beneath. He didn’t forget the fashion accessories either; Marc went for sparkly pilgrim-buckle shoes and even remembered to pull up his coordinating black socks!


Our talented silver jewellery designer, Annie Haak, says:


“The fabulous and varying designs seen at this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala reveal just how fantastically creative the fashion industry is. Seeing such outlandish fashion innovations are always excellent inspirational fodder for our upcoming jewellery designs!”
