It’s everywhere, so we had to write about it. That’s right, Kimye’s (Kim Kardashian’s and Kanye West’s), Vogue magazine cover. There has been a ton of controversy involving this cover. Celebs such as Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted, “Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me?”

Frankly, one controversial cover isn’t going to force us to cancel our Vogue subscription. Flipping through the glossies is an addiction that we’re not afraid to hide (along with jewelry of course!).
Fashion-goddess and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour responded to the harsh critics:
“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason. Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”

What do you think of the latest Vogue cover?

We for one, love watching Kim flash her bling around. Here are some of our favorite photos.

Heavy Metal Jewelry Lights Up CFDA Awards

Lady Gaga never met a spotlight she didn’t steal, which was certainly the case at the 2011 CFDA Awards (aka: The Fashion Oscars) last night at New York’s Allice Tulley Hall.

While she didn’t bring the bling (sigh), she did shine in a studded Thierry Mugler number that unraveled into a sparkling thong (because who doesn’t need a sparkling thong?).

Add one Anna Wintour-inspired seafoam bob, red-nailed monster claws and towering platforms, and you’ve got yourself a style icon in the making.

Which is exactly what the Council of Fashion Designers of America thought when they awarded her with the (aptly titled) Fashion Icon Award, which she accepted with her parents looking on.

And while pop stars were on the minds of the fashion elite, it was heavy metal that made the red carpet sparkle with a huge showing of statement jewelry in solid yellow gold – along with summertime staples like yellow gold hoops.

 

Turquoise trimmings were also trending – another must-have for summer, as every fashionista worth their debit cards ALL know, dahling.

 

So. What have we learned? Lady Gaga is keeping the wig industry in business – and there are two essential items you gotta put in heavy rotation for the upcoming summer months: turquoise and yellow gold sparkle.

 

Here are two great looks from Jewelry.com to get you going. Day-glo bob, not included.

FINALLY – don’t forget to cruise over to the Jewelry.com Facebook Page for a complete look at all the CFDA red carpet pics – from Jessica Alba and Naomi Watts to the Olsen Twins and the Divine Miss Anna and more!

Green, Glam and Hair Gems Light Up The Met

Red carpet fashion gawking doesn’t get much better than the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala. And since this year honored the late Alexander McQueen – the fashion-forward had a field day, turning jewelry style quite literally – on its head.

It looks like the Brits aren’t the only ones with a penchant for haute couture headwear. Everyone from newly engaged Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba to uber-designer Stella McCartney and Fergie put icy diamonds on their tresses.

Although (and I risk the wrath of Campbell when I say this…) this isn’t one of Naomi’s better fashion moments.Yikes!

It appears green is still the ‘go-to’ color for gemstones, with Rihanna, Ginnfer Goowdwin, Mary Kate Olsen, Tory Burch, and many others channeling their inner Kermit for couture’s sake.

 

Great statement earrings shined on the likes of Kristin Bell, Lea Michele and Cristina Hendricks.

And, of course, diamonds still rule when it comes to red carpet sparkle. I was pleasantly surprised to see Madonna in this understated, spidery look by Cartier. And the “less-is-more” queens of diamond stud-wear wore just the right splash of sparkle (although, Michelle Williams? It’s time to mix it up, sister.)

Madonna, don’t be my new Paula Abdul, sister. Say it ain’t so. Marc Jacobs really dressed you in this for tonight’s Costume Institute Gala at The Met? You know, the gala where he is the guest of honor? Yeah, that gala.

What do you guys think? Is this just our funky, fierce Madge or a major faux pas?

More to come… (wait ’til you see who wore a misguided pants suit, who impressed in emeralds, and the oh so divine Marion Cotillard)
