Age is just a number, right? With the Cougar craze taking the country by storm, see how the fashion world is taking note. Madonna and Demi, are you listening?
Diamonds, gold, sapphires, rubies – bless their hearts, they never discriminate. No matter how many crow’s feet, eye-lifts and hot flashes we women might get, they love us all with equal abandon. So what better way to honor your inner Cougar (or Cat Lady, as the case may be) than to flaunt your prowess with feline jewelry fashion to remind all those twenty-somethings who’s really boss.
Cartier may call their coveted cats “The Panther Collection” but there’s no better way for the Cougar to shine in our book. Extravagantly priced (it’s Cartier after all), the line is made out of only the finest metals and purest diamonds and gems. Stylist and Cougar catch, Rachel Zoe, wears the Cartier leopard cocktail ring constantly and cougar-in-waiting, Paris Hilton, recently acquired the entire Cartier line when her boyfriend flashed his Black Amex card in Venice a few weeks ago.
Cats on the, um, catwalk proved to be a trend to watch in New York this season, with Anna Sui featuring meow-worthy jewelry in her collection and many other designers using leopard print to make their runways purr.
But you don’t have to have an Ivana Trump budget to nab a cougar-inspired gem of your own. Check out Jewelry.com’s collection of cat jewels and add a little shimmer the next time you flirt with the pizza guy.
