What we'd wear to the Met Gala!

While we might not top the Met Gala 2024 guest list, every year we’re sat on our sofas in anticipation of head-turning outfits from our favourite celebs. Whether it’s Doja Cat’s Met Gala Kitty costume or Rihanna’s custard-like cape, we can’t resist pairing these VIP looks with our handmade in Britain, acrylic jewellery… And this year is no different - so keep your eyes peeled on our Instagram the morning after (Tuesday, 7th May)! 

A benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute with a black-tie dress code, really this is the party of the season where you must dress. to. impress. Celebrating the Mets new exhibition “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion”, the dress code has been set: introducing “The Garden of Time.” Inspired by a 1962 short story by J.G. Ballard about a rich couple living in a walled estate with a magical garden. We’re seeing 3D statement florals, sheer tulle, and whimsical silhouettes - the perfect partner to Tatty Devine jewellery.

Here are three pieces of handmade occasion jewellery Team Tatty would wear to join the best Met Gala looks of all time:

Water Lily Pond Statement Necklace

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking! Good enough to impress Miranda Priestly (and Anna Wintour): add a unique twist on flower accessories with our expertly hand-inked Water Lily Pond Statement Necklace, £325. Inspired by the timeless garden of Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, the world's a-listers need limited edition jewellery designs. We’d pair this art-inspired piece with tulle skirts plucked straight from John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Spring/Summer 2024 Artisanal collection.

As seen on The Bear’s Ayo Edebiri, our next luxe look is inspired by Rodarte’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection. We’re talking long beaded gowns adorned with colourful florals from red poppies to yellow daisies. Using our (imaginary) invitation to the Met Gala to champion causes close to our hearts, our springtime flower drop earrings complete with charitable donation are our go-to partner for sleek slip dresses. 

£5 per Festival of Flowers Earrings, £38, sold is donated to Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK's leading HIV and sexual health charity which has been there for people living with HIV since 1982.

Pink Rose Earrings - Pearlescent Acrylic | Tatty Devine

Straight from a fairytale, we’re reawakening our jewellery collection with hot pink rose earrings, £55, delicately hand-curved and intricately inked by our team of expert makers in the south of the UK. Inspired by the story of Sleeping Beauty, these giftable earrings are a match for the romantic silhouettes of Simone Rocha’s rose-adorned dresses. We see Dua Lipa rocking this look!
