Galas, Gowns and Grown-up Jewelry

Every jewelry hound knows the fall season brings with it all kinds of galas, opening nights and high profile fundraisers – perfect conditions for a good bauble hunt.

I love it when the grown-ups come out to play.

New York City Ballet’s Fall Gala:

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Sarah Jessica Parker on a red carpet, and she picked the tony occasion of the New York City Ballet’s Fall Gala last night to grace us with a little Halston hotness and some great dress-up jewelry.

I love the necklace layering – not too matchy-matchy and just the right side of gaudy with the metallic sheen of her dress.  What do you think of the choice? Should she lose the longer look?

Los Angeles Philharmonic Opening Gala:

Eva Mendes lit up the left coast last night in a flowing Dior gown and sparkling Neil Lane jewelry that channeled old Hollywood glamour.

This diamond bracelet looks like it was made for her gown. Gorgeous!

Who are your favorite grown-up gamines to gawk at on the red carpet? Charlize Theron is another one on my list – despite her unfortunate gown choice at the Oscars this year.
