The Breakthrough Prizes are no time to go over-the-top fashion-wise—the ceremony honors scientists with multimillion-dollar awards—but Moore knows that understated doesn’t equal boring. To add color to her black Prada column gown (with a chic cocoa sequin cape), she turned to her favorite jeweler, Chopard, which also outfitted her with two massive diamond cuffs tipping the scales at more than 53 and 74 cts. t.w. each.

Normally we wouldn’t get this excited about a corset (because…ouch), but Cabello and stylist Karla Welch went and paired this custom embellished sweetheart-necked Armani Prive number with a pair of trousers at the American Music Awards, where she took home four trophies. Trousers! Plus a whole mess of diamonds—including a classic Serpenti jewel—courtesy of Bulgari. Now good luck getting “Havana” out of your head.
