Whenever she's been given the opportunity, Amanda Gorman has never failed to take our breath away. After stealing the show with her incredible poetry â€” and gorgeous skin â€” at the presidential inauguration earlier this year, she's back as a co-chair of the 2021 Met Gala and once again inspiring us in so many ways, not the least of which with a bejeweled face.
Wearing a crystal-dappled royal blue Vera Wang gown â€” perhaps inspired by the blue in the red, white, and blue aspect of this year's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" â€” Gorman arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art relatively early on, but immediately established herself as one of the best looks of the night. A "reimagined Statue of Liberty," the stunning look was topped off with a crystal laurel crown designed by Jennifer Behr.
But the crown was only part of the sparkle. Different-size crystals extended onto Gorman's glowing skin diagonally above an eyebrow, across the bridge of her nose, and onto her temple.
The crystals continue in Gorman's hair, too. Her super thick, extra-long braid was knotted at the end with crystals woven into the strands.
Her jewelry wasn't just crystals â€” it was made up of incredible gems. Her earrings featured cushion-shaped sapphires â€” more than four carats â€” along with five carats of diamond nizam beads and 1.22 carats of diamonds. Her white gold ring featured a 1.77-carat cushion-shaped sapphire, 2.81 carats of diamond nizam beads, and more than a carat of diamonds both from Chopard's Haute Joaillerie Collection.
Gorman truly captured the sparkling glamour of this long-awaited event, and once again solidified herself as a national treasure on so many levels.
