While watching the film The
for the first time the other night, I couldn’t help but comment to my
fiancé that I felt like I’d recently seen actress Marisa Tomei au natural more
often than clothed, what with her performance in that flick, combined with her
notorious role in Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead.

So maybe it’s a testament to
her acting chops that I always find myself a little surprised to see her
looking so full-on glamorous on the red carpet, where it becomes obvious that
she’s a lady who also looks very good in clothes.

At the Metropolitan Museum of
Art’s recent Costume Institute Gala, Tomei channeled a glam, tan Bianca Jagger
in her Studio 54 days, all dressed up in Halston with plenty of places to go.

Tomei opted for a 1940s
vintage Adrian gown plus vintage jewelry from Van Cleef & Arpels, including
the 1967 Estate diamond-center earrings featuring twisted yellow gold, and a
1958 Estate bracelet with an 8-carat cabochon sapphire and 4.5 carats of diamonds.
