A slew of A-list celebrities like Hayley Bieber, Travis Scott, and Jay-Z attended billionaire Michael Rubin’s annual “White Party” wearing accessories worth $139,000 to $7.8 million per piece.
Billionaire Michael Rubin—CEO of sports merchandise platform Fanatics—just hosted one of the year’s biggest parties in his $50 million mansion in the Hamptons. The annual American Independence Day event is so coveted that certain people offered payments worth seven figures just to buy their way into them.
While not everyone was invited to the exclusive blowout, the list of those who were is filled to the brim with A-list celebrities. Members of the press and netizens have humorously declared that every famous personality one can think of had attended the party.
That’s not hard to believe, since guests included Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Ben Affleck with daughter Violet and Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Emily Ratajkowski, Tom Brady, DJ Khaled, James Corden, Kim Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner—among many others.
As the event’s name implies, Rubin’s yearly summer party requires guests to dress in all-white. Attendees followed the requirement, but in typical celebrity fashion, took it up a notch with high-end accessories in the six to nine digit range.
Many of these valuable pieces were luxury watches and sparkling diamond pieces. Tiktoker Chad Alexander Kwiatkowski (@chad.alexander) even took the time to identify these timepieces and reveal their market prices.
“I often show market prices instead of the watches’ retail price because, unfortunately, most people don’t have the connections to get a watch at retail and instead have to pay what the market value is,” he shared with Insider.
As for sparkling diamond accessories, media outlets have already identified and released rough estimates of some of the party’s most eye-catching jewelry.
So, without further ado, below are a few of the valuable luxury accessories spotted at the immense celebration:
Hailey Bieber attended the party with her husband, popstar Justin Bieber. Safe to say, the 26-year-old model quite literally shined with an ensemble of diamond jewelry from Tiffany & Co. According to calculations, the glamorous jewel-encrusted pieces cost a total of $360,000.
Breaking it down further, the celebrity wore layers of necklaces from the luxury brand. More specifically the Victoria Vine ($139,000), Victoria Alternating Graduated ($99,000), and Victoria Graduated Line ($72,000). Hailey topped it all off with a pair of diamond cluster drop earrings ($56,500), also from Tiffany & Co.
This is just taking her jewelry pieces into consideration—the star also sported a white Prada purse worth $3,700, along with strappy Gianvito Rossi heels ($676) that complemented her white halterneck dress.
Kim Kardashian added some subtle yet sophisticated flair to her all-white fitted crop top and maxi skirt combo with a sparkling diamond belt. The custom accessory is an impressive 17-carat, pear-shaped diamond piece from French luxury brand, Messika Jewelry.
Since the piece is custom-made, its price is unknown. However, one can assume it’s quite valuable. Kardashian isn’t the only star who had a belt made by the company; Rihanna had a sparkling waist piece created for her outfit in the Fenty Beauty Event X Ulta Beauty event in Los Angeles. Other stars like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Cardi B have also been loyal patrons of Messika.
The 38-jewel timepiece is made of black ceramic and sports a titanium AP folding clasp. Its slate gray dial features the brand’s “Grande Tapisserie” pattern, black counters, white gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands with luminescent coating, and a black inner bezel.
Moroccan-American rapper French Montana (Karim Kharbouch) wore an eye-catching Richard Mille RM 35-02 in a bright, Quartz-TPT® Red color.
The automatic model can sell for around $420,000 and comes from Richard Mille’s “Nadal” line, a collaboration with Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal. The collection’s watches are know for their light, shock-resistant, and innovative designs.
The RM 35-02 features a baseplate and bridges made from grade 5 titanium, as well as a RMAL1 caliber. It also possesses a variable inertia balance wheel driven by a double-barrel system for better torque stability.
Rapper and singer Travis Scott also sported a piece from Richard Mille during the party, namely the RM 69 Tourbillon Erotic. The limited edition model can fetch a price as high as $850,000 in the market, as Richard Mille only created 30 pieces of its kind.
It’s certainly an inimitable piece; the watch exudes passion, sensuality, and sexuality due to its playfully erotic design.
The RM 69 Tourbillon Erotic has a manual winding tourbillon movement with “oracle complication,” retractable hours and minutes, and a power-reserve indicator. The piece’s complication presents three titanium rollers that contain certain phrases. When rotated, they form a variety of message combinations in the form of suggestive sentences.
Jay-Z ranked highest among the party’s attendees when it came to wearing valuable timepieces. The acclaimed record producer and rapper donned a vintage yellow-gold Patek Philippe Ref.2499.
Just how expensive is this singular piece? Well, Sotheby’s sold a watch of the same model in their 2022 for a whopping $7.68 million, according to Hypebeast.
Patek Philippe produced the large and complex watch in the 1980s. Its price has only increased in value over the years. Jay-Z’s particular Ref.2499 is as rare as they come, as it still carries the factory-made chain link bracelet. Both fans and watch enthusiasts also noticed that the star wore the watch to this year’s post-Oscars Gold Party.
