Jewelry lovers, you have one person to thank for getting Hollywood to break out the bling this weekend. One Mr. Donald Trump. Trump and Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem of Dubai (a.k.a. one of the richest dudes on the planet) threw one humdinger of a soiree in Bel Air to introduce the new Trump International Hotel and Tower in Dubai.
When money talks, people listen. And when money throws a party – you take off the diamond studs and your ‘tasteful’ little gold pendants and bring out the big guns. Oscar darling, Hilary Swank, got the memo and dazzled with a gorgeous Y-neck diamond stunner. We admittedly miss her long locks, but the short do gives the rocks the platform they deserve.
Hayden Panettierre complemented her leopard print mini with a pair of stunning gold drop earrings, and Private Practice star, Kate Walsh, followed suit with some extra-long vintage diamond dazzlers.
The evening’s entertainment, Christina Aguilera, kept it simple with some big diamond hoops, and Trump spawn, Ivanka, wore an even larger version of the same. The apple doesn’t fall far.
You have to hand it to The Donald. He knows how to get people excited about architecture. The Dubai addition to his signature tower collection is one of the most anticipated structures on the luxurious Palm Jumeirah. The 62-story, stainless steel and glass tower will be the tallest building on the man-made island (of course) and should be completed in summer 2011. We’re ready for our invite, Mr. Trump.
