Bollywood star Alia Bhatt made a stunning debut at the iconic MET Gala in New York, wearing an Atelier Prabal Gurung ivory silk tulle and satin-face organza ball gown. The outfit was complemented by handcrafted diamond jewellery from Malabar Gold & Diamonds, the sixth-largest jewellery retailer globally. As brand ambassador for the jewellery brand, Bhatt wore a diamond ring designed by Alice Cicolini, painstakingly handcrafted by master artisans from Malabar Gold & Diamonds. The signing of Alia as the brand ambassador aims to bring a new global outlook to the brand as they target new markets and strengthen their presence in major Indian cities.
It was a debut that the world will never forget. Alia Bhatt made her first appearance at the iconic MET Gala in New York wearing an Atelier Prabal Gurung ivory silk tulle and satin-face organza ball gown with an exaggerated basque waist, adorned with hand-beaded pearls and scintillating diamond jewellery from Malabar Gold & Diamonds, the sixth-largest jewellery retailer globally with 310+ showrooms across 10 countries.
In line with the night’s theme, ‘In honour of Karl’, a tribute to the legendary German designer Karl Lagerfeld, Alia, the brand ambassador of Malabar Gold & Diamonds, wore a diamond ring designed by the celebrated jewellery designer Alice Cicolini.
The knuckle duster was painstakingly handcrafted by master artisans from Malabar Gold & Diamonds and was created around a 2.21-carat rose-cut solitaire surrounded by tapered, baguette and round diamonds, with a tassel of pearls while the other hand had rings in beautiful uncut diamonds. The artistic brilliance of handcrafted jewellery perfectly complemented Alia’s Met Gala pure white princess gown that had a long train, with every inch of its bodice drenched in pearls.
Be it acting or fashion, Alia has been at the forefront of glamour and talent. After making her acting debut in 2012, Alia has delivered several blockbusters and garnered praise from critics and the public. And to all this, she has added more shine by becoming the brand ambassador of Malabar Gold & Diamonds.
