Ciara wore Russell Wilson's Super Bowl ring to the Met Gala to complete Seahawks dress

·2 min read

The Met Gala is known for its excess. Celebrities show up wearing some truly eye-catching outfits to justify paying $30,000 for a seat. The person who wears the most outrageous and expensive outfit wins.

That's not actually how it works. The Met Gala is a fundraising event, not a competition. It does, however, often feel like showing off earns celebrities some star points ... or at least some extra press.

If you are looking to "win" the Met Gala, you have to go all out. And when your husband has a massive Super Bowl ring with 172 diamonds sitting around the house, you make sure to wear it as an accessory.

That's precisely what Russell Wilson's wife Ciara did at Monday night's Met Gala.

Ciara's entire outfit was a shoutout to her husband. Her dress was inspired by the Seahawks' color rush uniforms. On the front, Ciara wore Wilson's No. 3. She also carried around a purse shaped like a football. The Super Bowl ring wasn't technically necessary, but it made one heck of a statement. 

Serena Williams, Simone Biles, Naomi Osaka also dazzle at Met Gala

Other athletes who attended the event didn't go with sports-focused outfits, but still pulled off some bold looks. Serena Williams showed up wearing a cape.
