Our favorite film festival has arrived…the Cannes Film Festival, unless you prefer the full French name Le Festival International du Film de Cannes (say that three times fast in your best French accent!). Cannes is fun for a number of reasons. One, who doesn’t love movies? Two, it takes place in France. Three (and this is of course the most important), celebs come decked out in their very best jewelry!
Blake Lively really is a fashion goddess. After her gorgeous Met Gala look, she knocked it out of the park once again during the first day of Cannes. She accessorized her burgundy Gucci gown with a Lorraine Schwartz colored diamond flower bracelet, a diamond vine bracelet, and unique pink diamond earrings with 25 carat ruby drops. We just love the big-earrings look! Wonder if we could pull them off…

Do we even have to say anything about Nicole Kidman? This woman just oozes class. She paired an Armani Prive gown (embellished with tons of bling) with some gorgeous Harry Winston diamond earrings, a Harry Winston diamond bracelet, and a Winston Cluster Line bracelet. Loving the bracelets! Pretty in character for her new film Grace of Monaco where she plays Grace Kelly, don’t you think?

Earrings were a big trend at the opening day of Cannes. Although many critics didn’t agree with model Karlie Kloss’s dark Valentino gown, we really loved her jewels. Karlie completed her look with ethical pendant earrings from Chopard’s Green Carpet Collection.

Rose gold jewelry is very popular at the moment, and perfect for the upcoming warm-weather months. Zoe Saldana stunned in a white Victoria Beckham dress, paired with Catene rose gold and diamond earrings and an Onde ring. The rose gold creates a lovely contrast with her white dress.

O.M.G. We had to save the best for last. Here is Elena Lenina, the eccentric Russian star, in an extremely poufy red dress and just look at that hair! HOW did she get it to do that? We’re lucky if we get some curls to stay in throughout the day. Her hair is completely dolled up with a tiara, crown, some funky flower looking jewel-encrusted hair pieces, and honestly, we don’t even know what else she could be hiding in there. Any guesses?

Met Gala 2014 Best Dressed

Anna Wintour’s infamous Met Gala took place last night and while no, we weren’t there (hey, we can dream!), we have scoured the web to check out the attendees in their very best dresses and baubles, and let’s not forget tuxes and suits. This year, the Met Gala 2014 theme was “White Tie and Decorations.” The theme honored Charles James, a British-born designer known for his glamorous ball gowns, classic silhouettes, and overall elegant designs. Here are our top four favorite looks (how could we not include SJP?!).

Best-Dressed: Sarah Jessica Parker channeled her inner Sex and the City and looked simply stunning in a black and white Oscar de la Renta gown, made especially for her of course. It was SJP’s idea to have de la Renta’s name embroidered across the back of the dress in scarlet embroidery thread. She accessorized with long white gloves and Fred Leighton earrings and bracelet.

Best-Dressed: Blake Lively and hubby Ryan Reynolds both looked amazing and pulled off the white tie theme flawlessly, but really do they ever look anything less than perfect? The lovebirds wore custom-designed Gucci pieces. Blake paired her silk chiffon gown with Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a large cocktail ring. Ryan on the other hand didn’t wear any accessories, but let’s be serious, he doesn’t need to.

Best-Dressed: Kate Bosworth looked gorge (and supper skinny!) in a pink Stella McCartney gown. Kate wore a number of gold accessories such as drop earrings, cuff bracelets, rings, and a choker-type necklace. Her jewelry came from a number of different designers including Ana Khouri, Vieri, Sidney Garber, and Anna Sheffield.

Best-Dressed: Beyonce can never do wrong, we all know that. Queen Bee paired a black Givenchy dress with a headpiece, and accessorized with black Lorraine Schwartz earrings (talk about statement jewelry) and several rings. One of the rings actually slid off her finger, and hubby Jay Z found it and acted out a mock proposal. How cute!

Worst-Dressed: You know this post wouldn’t be complete without us including at least one worst-dressed. That title goes to…Lena Dunham! We love Lena, we really do (go Girls!), but this dress really doesn’t flatter much. Maybe something a little longer would have been a better choice to accompany the theme of the night.

The celebrity emerald jewelry trend that started with Angelina Jolie’s Oscar jewels in 2009, expanded to Julianne Moore’s Bulgari beauties in 2010 and peaked at this Sunday’s Academy Awards with Reese Witherspoon and Annette Bening (deep inhale)…well, it continues to bring in fashion’s biggest stars.

Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively was every bit the sartorial siren when she attended a Chanel-hosted dinner in her honor last night at New York’s La Grenouille in Chanel Haute Couture (’09), ballet-inpsired Louboutin pumps and STUNNING emerald earrings by (who else?) Lorraine Schwartz!

While I should find something snarky to say about the emerald earring trend wearing out its welcome – the truth is? I love it. And with Lorraine Schwartz behind so many of the dazzling looks – what’s not to love?

The price points for one. So here are a few great Sample Sale emerald RING selects I found on JewelClub for all you Dorothy wannabes who want to take a trip to Emerald City without pawning your ruby slippers. (This Dorothy wants that cocktail ring with the black and white diamonds. Just sayin’).

Diamond classics and splashes of color dominated the red carpet at the 2009 Emmy Awards yesterday, with a few new jewelry trends emerging to keep things interesting.

Before I get to the jewelry run down, can I just have a ‘Kanye’ moment for a sec? What kind of world do we live in when the guy from Breaking Bad beats out Mad Men’s John Hamm for Best Actor in Drama Series? Does anyone even WATCH that show? Criminal.

And OK. How tired are we of seeing Amazing Race and the Survivor guy win in the reality category? I like my reality catty and cringe-worthy thank you very much, with a splash of fashion and untrained throat-singing thrown in for good measure.Emmy? America has moved on.

Ok. Back to our regular programming.

It was great to see a return to blingy glamour on the carpet last night, with a few WOW moments thrown in for good measure (thank you, Blake Lively and January Jones).

I am loving the black diamond trend that emerged on stars like Heidi Klum and Alicia Witt. And clear jewels on lovelies like Ginnifer Goodwin (in Ivanka Trump) and Jamie Lynn Sigler surprised and satisfied.

Purple and red were the colors of the night, with strapless gowns and braided Swiss Miss hair making a strong showing.


But it was classic diamond glamour that reigned supreme, with most stars opting to bedazzle not just the ears this year, but the wrist and the neck as well.

Who was your favorite fashion celeb last night?It’s a toss up for me between January Jones and Blake – both in Versace.

Swarovski Opens Concept Store

Looking lovely in white, Gossip Girls star Blake Lively hosted the opening of the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED Concept Store in New York on Thursday, June 25th.

Lively was joined by Chloe Sevigny, Lucy Liu, and Evan Rachel Wood as she unveiled the special editions necklaces for the launch of the store. All the proceeds go to benefit charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

“The availability of clean water is such an important issue and it is wonderful to be involved in a project that is striving to make this basic resource available to all people throughout the world,” Lively said.

The Swarovski Concept Store will offer customizable jewelry for its customers, as well as collections from cutting edge designers.

So if you’re in New York City and want a cool, new item for your girls’ night ‘to do’ list or a groovy gift idea for your bridesmaids, head to the Swarovski store where you can sip iced lattes while they put the finishing touches on your customized jewelry piece.

A much better idea for bridesmaids’ gifts than a (snore) picture frame or a scented candle, right?
