Blake Lively, a co-chair of the Met Gala, paid tribute to New York City with her copper and teal Atelier Versace Gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The actress explained in a video for Vogue how the colors were a tribute to the natural copper color and patina tone of the Statue of Liberty.
Lorraine’s earrings composed of nude-colored diamonds and light emeralds coordinated with the gown to perfection. The design of the copper tiara with nude diamonds and Paraíba tourmalines have seven spikes similar to Lady Liberty’s famous crown symbolizing the seven continents. Blake asked Lorraine to make the tiara with 25 stones to represent Liberty’s 25 windows.
