Meet the odd couple…
This year’s Met Gala was always going to be the biggest sartorial spectacle, with every attendee appearing to channel the avant-garde style of Comme des Garçons designer and honoree, Rei Kawakubo.
Because, if you can’t take a fashion risk on the Met red carpet, when can you folks? Pause for thought when we cast our minds back to this time last year – when it was all about futuristic femme, Zayn’s Robocop get-up and, er, Kanye’s eyeballs.
Fast-forward, and the accessories forecast is looking decidedly less sci-fi, more artful. The next big jewellery trend? Get ready for mismatched earrings! Yes, really.

From OTT earpiece bling (see model Adwoa Aboah, who opted for a design from young Central Saint Martins graduate Conner Ives) to bold and architectural lobe-dressing (yes, we’re now using that phrase). For those looking for a more understated approach, check out Gigi Hadid, Daisy Ridley and Sofia Richie’s simple take on the ‘It’ accessory of the moment.
It's official: ‘Tis the season to make a ‘so-wrong, but yet so right’ statement...
Though please be prepared for your non ‘fashion’ mates to question you because you appear to have gotten dressed in the dark.
