Every May, the Met Gala hosts a haute couture fundraising event to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in Manhattan, New York City. Regarded as the world’s most prestigious and glamorous event, it draws celebrities and models who showcase their fashion sense according to the theme.

This year’s fashion theme, “The Garden of Time” (inspired by JG Ballard’s 1962 short story), brought creativity to the red carpet. Many guests chose to accessorise their outfits with OMEGA watches.  

OMEGA ambassador Eddie Redmayne made a personal statement with his choice of the Seamaster Aqua Terra Shades 38 mm with a sandstone dial.

TV host, producer and comedian Jimmy Fallon wore an OMEGA Speedmaster 38 mm in 18K Moonshine™ Gold.
