The Jewelry Insider

April 8, 2014

The Academy Country Music Awards (ACMA’s) took place this past weekend and guess who was watching – that’s right, we were! Even if country music isn’t really your thing (don’t knock it until you try it!), you have to admit that the ACMA’s are always fun to watch. Who doesn’t love checking out the latest red carpet looks and trends? We chose our top three favorite best-dressed (jewelry is what really wins us over) and threw in a worst-dressed just for good measure.

Best-dressed: The pretty and talented Taylor Swift sported a crop top with some major leg. Somehow we don’t think the average-Joe could have pulled off this look, but T Swift did it very stylishly. Her dangly Marina B earrings and wrist-wear, though simple, were perfect for her ensemble. Here are some tie drop earrings, shaped just like T Swift’s that are sure to spice up your look.

Best-dressed: We don’t think it’s possible for Faith Hill to look anything but gorgeous. Seriously, didn’t she look amazing in her in v-neck blue dress with hubby Tim McGraw (who looked pretty good himself!)? What really pulled her outfit together was her geometrically shaped Martin Katz statement necklace. It reminded us a little bit of this blue topaz necklace.

Best-dressed: We just loved Carrie Underwood’s classy fringe dress and the way she paired it with pink David Yurman drop earrings. Stunning! Who would’ve thought pink and beige go so well together? Searching for a similar pair? These Swarovski crystal starfish earrings might be just what you’re looking for!

Worst-dressed: Kacey Musgraves is such a beautiful girl, but her dress reminded us of something we wore to one of our high-school dances (remember all that tulle?). Hoop earrings are always in, so they were a nice touch. Here’s a finely crafted pair of hoops in 14K white gold to add to your collection of jewelry staples.

Who made it to your best-dressed and worst-dressed lists?

Miranda Kerr Lands Swarovski Gig

What do you do when you quite literally have it all? If your Aussie model Miranda Kerr, you sign up to be the new face of Swarovski this fall. Duh.

As if being a top-notch Victoria’s Secret angel, having a husband named Orlando Bloom and an adorable son named Flynn isn’t enough happiness in your life, surely a little Swarovski sparkle will do the trick. Can’t we all be so lucky?

According to a press release, the creative director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse said, “Mix Miranda Kerr with home-grown English garden roses, Swarovski jewelery, Nick Knight photography, original Pharrell Williams music and you get beauty, warmth, coolness and desirability. Things we love.” We couldn’t agree more. The campaign was shot by British photographer Nick Knight.

Past faces of Swarovski include Candice Swanepoel, Lily Donaldson, Katie Fogarty and Berenice Marlohe.

The ads, scheduled to start in november, will run in 25 countries with commercials in Italy, France and Hong Kong (but you can find anything on the internet, gentlemen).

For your own sparkling Swarovski moment, check out our stash of jewelry crafted with the sparkling stones right here and save 40% with code 40SWAROV! Running through an English rose garden while listening to Pharrell, you’re on your own for that though.


Oh, did we mention she also grabbed the number 2 spot on Forbes list of highest paid models?
