Jewel Wears Second Show-Stopping Gown at Art Exhibit Preview — See Her Look

Jewel is a work of art!

The singer and artist, 49, turned heads in two show-stopping dresses at the preview of her new exhibit, The Portal: An Art Experience by Jewel, at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, on Friday night, May 3.

The “Foolish Games” singer wore the second dress for dinner, a performance of “Over the Rainbow” and an auction of four of her guitars.

It appeared to be a simple off-white silk dress — except she also topped it with a piece of moving artwork attached to her back like wings. At times, the feathery structures appeared to be flowers but they morphed into shapes that resembled butterflies.

The piece’s artist, Casey Curran, posted a video on Instagram showing how the wearable art moved.

“I’m so thrilled to finally share this piece worn by the unbreakable and ever illustrious @jewel for her stellar exhibition The Portal @crystalbridgesmuseum,” Curran captioned his post.

Jewel’s first gown of the evening by Ananda-kosha included an intricately sculpted design over a nude slip. She wore her hair in a simple, loose updo and kept her makeup minimal and natural.

The artist told PEOPLE that the theme of the night was “the unseen realm.” Both of her looks embodied that theme.

“It revolves around an idea that we all travel through three realms of reality every day, often without realizing it,” the “Standing Still” singer explained. “Our inner realm, which is thoughts and feelings, the physical world and then the unseen, whatever that means to you.”
