Singer-songwriter Madonna reportedly wore a crown and a rosary necklace made by Indonesian designer Rinaldy Yunardi to the opening of the 2018 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) in New York on May 7.

The crown gold features small crosses, which matches this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".

Meanwhile, Madonna’s black, long-sleeved dress was designed by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

Rinaldy posted on his official Instagram account that his hopes and dreams came true as his work has been worn by Madonna, a legendary diva that he admires and loves, in the prestigious Met Gala event.

“I'm also happy to see my work being worn together with a dress designed by my favorite designer, Jean Paul Gaultier,” he added.

Rinaldy is no stranger to the Met Gala. Last year, singer Cassie Ventura was seen at the annual fundraising gala wearing spiky diamond earrings designed by him.
