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.

Jewelry fashion is always gawk-worthy when the fashion world gets together for a function. Whether it’s sitting runway-side or throwing a fundraiser, where there’s Anna, Diane, Galliano and Leon – there’s diamonds, gemstones, and gold out the wazoo.

Last night, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund celebrated its fifth anniversary at Skylight Studios in New York, and the glamorous crowd came out in droves. The evening celebrated up-and-coming designers with five and six figure prizes and top designers Narciso Rodriguez, John Galliano, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Zac Posen were there to root them on.

The evening’s top prize of $200,000 and a year’s worth of mentoring, went to 24-year-old Alexander Wang.

“Four years ago I was reading about this award in my dorm room in a magazine,” the youngster told Style.com.

Looking drop dead gorgeous in Dior and a stunning vintage diamond choker was my favorite jewelry hound, Charlize Theron. And while an understated Blake Lively was there to share the spotlight, no one could hold a candle to the evening’s glamazonian MC.

The guests glittered as well with model, Doutzen Kroes in Hervé Léger and a glittering statement necklace and guest Chiara Clemente, in Giambattista Valli and golden pom-pom earrings.

The only misstep was a usually classic Anna Wintour in an unfortunate short sleeved sequined number with black tights that bordered on the, dare I say, tacky?
