Trend Alert!

Criss-cross jewelry is a popular (and fun!) new jewelry trend. Celebs such as Jessica Alba, and How I Met Your Mother star Cristin Milioti have been spotted on the red carpet rocking this trend.
The beauty of criss-cross jewelry is that the design is really rather simple, but when viewed up close looks very unique. Check out Jessica Alba’s criss-cross bracelet for example. It adds a nice subtle but sparkly touch to her all-white dress.

Look at the way How I Met Your Mother star Cristin Milioti paired a rose-gold criss-cross ring with a brightly-patterned dress for a more eclectic look. We love her mani by the way (especially the one gold nail!).

MTV Movie Awards: Jewelry, Fashion, & Beauty Trends

The MTV Movie Awards took place just this past weekend. Didn’t have time to watch? No worries! We’re here to bring you photos and conversation about the awards red-carpet trends. As usual, we scoured the carpet for the brightest and biggest jewels, but we’re also fashion and beauty fiends. Here are three jewelry, fashion, and beauty trends we spotted.

Rihanna at the MTV Music Awards

Earring Bling: Dig out your dangly earrings! This year earrings were plentiful at the MTV Movie Awards. Jessica Alba rocked a pair of long black earrings and a second pair of cross earrings from Graziela Gems. If you’re looking for a similar pair, check out these gorgeous Van Kempen Onyx stunners. We’re sure you’ll love them!

Wavy Beach Hair: Look’s like even the celebs are ready for the summer (aren’t we all?). Ellie Goulding showed up to the awards sporting some casual golden locks that we can never seem to pull off ourselves. She went for a classic look with simple Finn earrings, Lynn Bann bracelets and ring, and a Penny Preville ring. Here’s a triple bangle bracelet like Ellie’s.

Solid Colors Accessorized: While there were a number of floral looks at the awards, several celebs opted for solid colors, and accessorized their outfits with jewels. Nicki Minaj accented her skin-tight black dress with some Alexander McQueen gold jewelry, including several armbands, which are hot items for the spring and summer.

The 2013 Golden Globes red carpet was a mixed bag of sensations, snores and surprises, with everything from a $5.7 million Harry Winston diamond necklace (or scarf as my colleague Mandy Tracy at Jewelry.com aptly called it) to barely there diamond studs to…yes…even a bug!

Here’s the highlight reel for your drooling pleasure (many credits forthcoming). And, as usual, please be sure to weigh in with your favorites of the night!

1. Diamond Necklaces

Shocker! Diamond neckwear stole the show this year with stunning vintage looks from Olivia Munn in Chopard, Jessica Alba in that $5.8 million Harry Winston shocker, Sally Field’s neckwear knockout to host Amy Poehler’s Chopard lariat weighing in at (wait for it…) 83 carats! Ba-ling!
 

2. Earring Statements 

Julianne Hough was my first jewelry sighting of the night – and I was pleasantly surprised to know that her choice in ear candy was a riskier move than her choice to pair up with Ryan Snorecrest. That’s a REAL beetle stud earring and praying mantis ear cuff – both by Daniela Villegas. Win!
 

Taylor Swift’s Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings won big with the folks who participated in the head-spinning #globejewelry Live Tweet fest.


Just look at all these jaw-droppers tailor-made for looky-loos like us!

3. Diamond Sticks and Studs

Zzzzzzzzzz……… ‘Nuff Said.

4. Julianne’s Bulgari Blowout

Golden Globe-winner Julianne Moore deserves her own section this year, jewelry hounds. As the former spokesmodel for Bulgari and apparently friendly enough with Tom Ford to ask him to design her something by EMAIL (jealous!), well, it just doesn’t get much better than this.

6. Red, Burgundy and Ballet Pink

The A-list continues to turn out in red frocks (and safe jewels). These women are all stunning, but, I’m sorry. I just yearn for more ‘outside the box’ choices every now and again. But…this is a trend report and well, it’s still an Awards Show staple. Wake me when it’s over.

HOWEVER, a refreshing color craze helped to rouse me from my slumber….the blushy hues of ballet pink. Observe…

7. Spotlight Stealer/Meme Alert:

Move over A-Jo…

There’s a new ‘gam’ in town.

I KNOW I’ve missed many other moments worth mentioning. Who wore your favorite frock and jewel combo?

And don’t forget to check in with Jewelry.com later tomorrow, where we’ll attempt to pair some of these jaw-dropping jewelry looks with real-world alternatives. Fun!

Jet-Set Jewelry at the 2010 Venice Film Festival

The 2010 Venice Film Festival kicked off yesterday with a smattering of parties, premieres and pretty people. And while the well-known celebrities are always a big draw (Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba are already turning heads), my favorite film festival pastime is gawking at the jet-set jewelry on miscellaneous red carpet passersby.

Here are some of my favorites so far. But before we take that journey, pause if you will to witness Naomi Campbell’s emerald engagement ring from her Russian billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin spotted at the “Miral” premiere today. Wowza!









Stay tuned for more Venice Film Festival fashion coverage – and New York Fashion Week is one week away! You gotta love this time of year….

Awards season for celebrities means lots of galas, gowns and – of course – giveaways. Swag bags that were once a small token of an awards show’s affection have ballooned into a prize worth more than a year’s salary in most circles.

And ‘bags’ don’t really begin to describe the suitcases full of loot the stars get to schlep home after the festivities. In fact, there are entire swag rooms, or ‘gift suites’, the celebs can stroll through to pick up anything from free spa weekends and handbags to electronics and fine jewelry. Sounds rough.
According to Yahoo!’s OMG, some of stars spotted trolling the gift suites this year were “Swag Hag”, Debra Messing; “Gossip Girl”, Michelle Trachtenberg; and our favorite mom, Jessica Alba, who apparently fell in love with a woven, diamond-studded bracelet from Tacori. Other stars ogled conflict-free, earth-friendly fine jewelry from Precious Earth, and glittering gems from Touchstone Crystal.

And Best Actress nominees will be presented with a sparkly compact created by L’Oreal with help from colored-gemstone manufacturer Carelle, says National Jeweler. The compact features lemon citrine and pale-green quartz stones set in 18-karat yellow gold with diamond details. In addition to the nine compacts gifted to the likes of Angelina Jolie and new rival, Anne Hathaway, one last compact will be auctioned off on eBay.com to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation during the Golden Globes broadcast.

So while we’re watching sympathetically when the losers in each category get sloppy drunk on Moet and try desperately to get within Brad Pitt’s sightline, it’s best to remember that these artists may not have everything – but they can all powder their noses in style. For free.

A luminous Jessica Alba dazzled in Milan last week for the red carpet launch of her 2009 Campari calendar. The lady in red paired a stunning scarlet Dolce and Gabana dress with Bulgari vintage ruby and diamond jewels that made this jewelry hound drool on first sight.
Rubies haven’t looked this good since the red slipper renaissance!

Hunky husband, Cash Warren, attended the event with his lovely leading lady, and Donatella Versace, Alegra Beck and other glittering Milan residents kept them company.

The 10th anniversary edition of the Campari Catalog was directed by Jean Paul-Goude and photographed by world renown, Mario Testino, in Malibu – the perfect place to capture the “Club Campari” theme. Pics feature a curvy, post-baby-bod Alba in black and white swimsuits and elegant evening wear.

“I’m usually walking around in comfy clothes with a baby on my arm, and it’s nice to dress things up and feel sophisticated, sexy and surrounded by so much beauty,” Alba said of her sexy shoot. “Also being surrounded by Brazilian models made it even easier!”

Glamazons, Eva Mendez and Salma Hayek, have graced the pages of the calendar in year’s past, and I think we all can agree that Ms. Jessica has successfully carried the torch.

Campari will distribute the calendar internationally, but will only print 10,000 copies – -so get your guys a glittering eye-full before Santa runs out this season! You can, of course, always get a glimpse on their website: www.campari.com.
