These sparklers served as the perfect finishing touches to her Prada gown, which was created from leftover dead stock fabric from the brand's spring 2009 collection.

The Grammy award-winning rapper is known for his audacious style choices and wrist game. Never one to shy away from glitzy ensembles, Lil Nas X accompanied his bleached hair and extra long nails with a full glam white ensemble embellished with Swarovski crystals.

All that bling, yet the pièce de résistance was the white gold model on his wrist featuring a malachite dial. The Vintage Piaget sourced from Analog:Shift was a subdued choice for the rapper, but its integrated bracelet with distinctive bark pattern and green dial alludes to the "Garden of Time" theme code seamlessly, almost like peering into a garden.

The atelier dedicated 150 hours to create the couture piece, and she topped off the look with a watch that's just as dramatic: Audemars Piguet's Flying Tourbillon Openworked 41mm in Sand Gold to match. The timepiece, made of a new material introduced by the watchmaker, sat elegantly on William's gloves, complementing her gold rings and hair accessories.

Morgan Spector made his debut at the Met Gala red carpet wearing a stunning red and black suit by Willy Chavarría.

The actor also displayed his impeccable taste and attention to detail with his choice of accessory—the IWC Portugieser Automatic, which complemented the classy elegance of his ensemble with modern flair, reflecting his status as a style icon in the entertainment industry.
