Angelina Jolie’s Red Carpet Emeralds: Take Two

Angelina Jolie wore an emerald Versace gown on the 2011 Golden Globe red carpet tonight, with tiny emerald earrings to match. While this DOES take her out of her boring black/no jewelry funk, why do I feel like I’ve been in this movie before?

Oh yeah….

So for those who were keeping track of my double-diamond dare to Ms. Jolie (if she wore anything but black and basics I would chug a glass of bubbly) – consider me a loser. But another Angelina Jolie emerald statement somehow feels like cheating.  Just sayin’.

Stay tuned for my full Golden Globe jewelry recap – a red carpet where dresses out-sparkled the jewelry, my pretty-in-pink prediction came true, and the only thing big? Was the hair.

And the price tag for Dame Hellen Mirren’s $1.6 million Cartier necklace. Hello, lover.

Angelina Jolie Shines at “The Tourist” Premiere

Angelina Jolie’s red carpet fashion choices lately have left me, well, underwhelmed. There are only so many incarnations of the black gown/diamond stud combo we jewelry hounds are expected to endure on the most beautiful A-lister in the world, right?

But she SO redeemed herself at last night’s New York premiere for her latest flick, The Tourist, in a sultry winter white Versace number and unique emerald-cut beryl earrings that sent me scrambling to find out more.

So here’s the skinny:

Of course someone as gorg. as A-Jo has to have her own personal jeweler, right? Enter, Robert Procop – Asprey’s former CEO who’s bejeweled Brad Pitt’s better half for the past ten years or so.

Turns out, the earrings she wore on the carpet last night are part of a collection she and Procop collaborated on together – with all proceeds benefiting Jolie’s personal charity, The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

And the emerald ring Brad Pitt wore on the carpet last night also served as inspiration for one of the pieces, WWD reports.

Unfortunately, we mere mortals won’t be able to snag some for our own collection since the items are only available to Procop’s personal clients – and are priced accordingly. Whatevs. As long as it’s for the children…

While these beryl beauties aren’t as stunning as the emerald earrings Jolie made famous at the 2009 Oscars, they are a WELCOME reprieve from the snoresville stud earring Jolie had in heavy rotation while promoting her last film, Salt. (see my earlier rant here for more)

Although it’s hard to complain when she’s got the best accessory of all on her arm… Just bring Brad and I’ll keep the snark to myself.

Angelina Jolie’s Stud Earrings: Boring or Blingtastic?

When Angelina Jolie wore those stunning emerald earrings to the Oscars in 2009, I forgave every boring, black, Elvira-esque red carpet snorefest she made me endure from my glamorous spot on the sartorial sofa.

But the emerald glow has faded and, well, I just can’t take it anymore.

If A-listers like Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston are going to “black pants suit” and “gold hoop” their way through their red carpet careers, I thought at least Angelina – that Brad Pitt-stealing, action-adventure-starring, minx of a movie star – would bring us the lower-jaw-drop moments we so desperately crave.

Here she is in Los Angeles earlier this month for the Salt premiere. Black dress, diamond studs. Wake me when it’s over.

Paris this week: Different dress shade, same diamond drudgery.

And in Berlin she didn’t even bother!

Maybe she’s making a statement that the woman who has everything shouldn’t bask in the glory of a diamond tiara every time she makes a public appearance. But I’d settle for a chandelier earring from time to time – maybe a cuff?

Is anyone else as bored as I am? Or do I need to spend time worrying about more important matters. Like the Vogue September issue?
