Julianne Moore: Bvlgari’s Blingy Beauty

When Julianne Moore bared all for the Bvlgari Serpenti campaign last year, I was – shall we say – skeptical about her choice to add ‘jewelry spokesmodel’ to her resume. Why does a serious, successful actress need to get naked to peddle high-end jewelry?

The answer, of course, was – she gets to peddle (aka wear and probably OWN) some of the most beautiful baubles on the block. And since they’ve always got her in her birthday suit (what better way to wear 50+ carat emerald earrings?), she’s certainly reminding Hollywood that she’s still viable leading lady material.

So I’m over my concern. Ms. Moore knows EXACTLY what she’s doing. Even though the city of Venice banned her lion-laden campaign ads for being to ‘lewd’. (Italians? Not appreciating nudity? What gives?)

Just look at the jewelry she gets to wear – like this latest entry from Bvlgari’s recent ‘Save The Children’ event in Rome earlier this week.

The emerald earring choice just keep on giving…

What do you think of Ms. Moore’s new career as the jewelry world’s lucky leading lady? Sell-out or smart cookie?

Update: I was able to confirm that yes, indeed, these are the very same emerald earrings Julianne Moore wears in the Bulgari campaign. All $3 million dollars worth! Holy jaw drop!

Well, jewelry hounds – we have another emerald earring red carpet jaw-dropper. Julianne Moore just showed on the 2010 Golden Globe red carpet with (what I assume) are the Bulgari emerald earrings she wears in their latest campaign. And, as I expected, they are even MORE magnificent than Angelina Jolie’s emerald earring stunners at the Oscars last year – if that’s possible.

These Bulgari masterpieces are 115 carats (!) of pure Colombian emerald bliss, folks. I die!

Stay tuned for more Golden Globe coverage…the A-listers are still on their way!

Like Charlize Theron for Dior, Julianne Moore is entering the luxury lexicon of jewelry spokesmodel-dom, appearing in famous watch and jewelry brand, Bvlgari’s, latest campaign peddling their ‘Serpenti’ line, among other styles.

Almost as jaw-dropping as her nude photo shoot is the pair of Colombian pear-shaped emerald earrings she’ll wear, weighing 52.86 and 62.32 carats each. The stunning emeralds were part of Bvlgari’s first retrospective exhibition at Il Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome earlier in the year.

Dare I say that they rival Angelina’s emerald Oscar earrings from Lorraine Schwartz? I’m just saying…

The Serpenti collection is designed around snakes and scale shapes – a slithering genre that’s trending big for 2010 (including Brangelina’s line for Asprey). Bvlgari touts the new collection as a return to the design aesthetic that made the brand famous to begin with, with the A-lister ads (called “Eccentric Charisma”) set to debut in February.

Does Julianne Moore’s tasteful nudity and amazing emeralds make Bvlgari more attractive? I’ve always admired her talent, but have never taken her for the ‘spokesmodel’ type – so it’s a surprise they would choose her out of all the other ‘sell-outs’, I mean, serious actresses out there.

Baubles, Bvlgari and Barbie


With all the diamonds, designer duds and dream homes a girl could want, what’s left for Barbie to do but wish Ken’s arms would bend and hope for a better blinking mechanism?

Well, luxury jeweler, Bvlgari, has a plan to get Barbie out of the house by putting her to work for their latest charity campaign, “Rewrite the Future”.

Babs along with other celebrity spokesfolks like Jessica Biel, Mischa Barton, Ben Stiller and Sting are working with Bvlgari to promote Save the Children International’s latest efforts by wearing a special ring designed to celebrate the company’s 125th anniversary. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the worthy cause.

Save the Children is one of the largest independent international organizations for the defense and championing of children’s rights; they are present in over 100 countries around the world and are committed to providing quality education to 8 million children living in conflict-affected areas by the end of 2010.

The ring retails for $555 and you can nab one for yourself by visitng their website here.

In the meantime, I’m diggin’ Barbie’s high fashion makeover for the ad campaign. Cheer up, Barb. Blinking is so last season.
