Los Angeles-based designer Evangeline AdaLioryn makes out-of-this-world jewelry with a biomorphic edge.
From the Met Gala to Custom Engagement Rings, Evangeline AdaLioryn’s Jewelry Is Turning Heads
In September, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the actress Hunter Schafer walked onto the red carpet as if it were a rocket to the moon. Styled by Law Roach for the 2021 Met Gala, the Euphoria star wore a metallic midriff-baring two-piece ensemble inspired by Prada’s spring 1999 collection, featuring a curved corset top and an ankle-length skirt inlaid with rectangular jewels arranged like the diodes and fuses on a circuit board.
The cyborg look was a standout, calling to mind the dystopian dreams of American retrofuturism, but what really got folks talking was the nearly fist-sized chunk of metal shimmering between her pupils, which were veiled by white contact lenses: On the bridge of Schafer’s nose rested a massive, many-tendrilled white-gold brooch by the rising Los Angeles-based designer Evangeline AdaLioryn, held in place by invisible wires tied to hidden braids and a dollop of special effects glue. Cradled at its center was a gigantic aquamarine, which seemed to absorb the light of the surrounding flash photography like vital life energy or a generator.
