The Best Accessories From the Met Gala


With all of the focus on ball gowns and coattails at this year’s Met Gala, it can be easy to overlook the accessories (with the exception of Erykah Badu’s Givenchy hat, of course). Yet many of last night’s eccentric stylings merit a closer look, from the rose-strewn ponytail and butterfly earrings sported by Giovanna Battaglia to Julie Macklowe’s iridescent Edie Parker clutch, which read “Baller” across the front. Stacked bracelets and full-finger rings abounded, as did quirky hair fixings, like Lupita’s Prada headband and the Fred Leighton winged barrettes Olivia Munn wore in her silky tresses.
