Looking “confident”! Demi Lovato literally sparkled at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2016. The “Stone Cold” singer, 23, stunned in Moschino by Jeremy Scott for her first Met Ball.

The silk printed gown, custom made by creative director Jeremy Scott himself, featured silver hand embroidery and contrasting gold detail on the neckline and the sleeves. For an extra dose of shine, Lovato wore a 12.5-carat diamond ring and 6-carat earrings from Norman Silverman. She stayed within the same color palette by picking silver Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a gold and silver Edie Parker box clutch.

“This is his vision and I just wanted to let him do his thing,” Lovato told W magazine.

And his vision didn’t necessarily align with the night’s Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology theme.

“I really don’t participate with that whole theme thing,” Scott revealed to W. “The people who curate this exhibition work on it all year and I feel like it’s kind of rude for me to be so presumptuous to be like, ‘Well I am going to come and give you the Chinese dress that is going to outdo yours. Unless I was already doing something with light-up things going on in it, it kind of seems insincere.”

Instead, he sought inspiration from the Palace of Versailles Hall of Mirrors. “She is really giving me a whole new take on Marie Antoinette,” he said.
