Charles Albert Makes a Bold Statement

Charles Albert is one of the most creative jewelry designers I’ve seen. We’re not the only ones raving about his fabulous jewels, many celebs are gushing over his pieces too. Stars such as Kesha, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Joan Rivers and many more have all been seen wearing these baubles. Heidi Klum will be seen in the May 2012 issue of Allure Magazine sporting some of Charles Albert’s pieces. His jewelry frequently graces the pages of Vogue, InStyle, Marie Claire and Elle Magazine to name a few.

If you’re looking for something simple then this is not for you. These pieces are BIG!! Ice carries an array of bright colored agate cuff bracelets, rings and pendants. I’m loving the blue and green pieces! All of these agate pieces will slightly vary in color, size and shape since they are all genuine stones, making them even more unique.

Some of the darker pieces feature fossils in the form of pendants, earrings and rings. How cool is that? One of the most dramatic pieces is this black obsidian arrowhead necklace. (pictured below) You can wear this with an evening dress or dress up a simple t-shirt and jeans.

MTV VMA Highlights

There’s a reason why the MTV Video Music Awards doesn’t air around awards season with the Oscars, Grammys & Emmys. The VMAs are in a category of their own, they are loud, crazy and outrageous and we love it! This is the one night where music artists try to outdo the previous year’s performances and outfits. Yes, there are awards to be given out but that’s not why people tune in.

Some of the most memorable moments of the night were:

- Beyonce looking absolutely ravishing in a one-shoulder tangerine Lanvin gown showing off her baby bump. She accessorized her look with huge Emerald jewelry. Not only did she look fab on the red black carpet but she glowed on stage during her performance. I loved her sparkly sequin blazer which she unbuttoned at the end of the song and gave her baby bump a tummy rub leaving proud papa-to-be Jay-Z jumping up and down in excitement. So cute!

- Jo Calderone, the alter ego of Lady Gaga (who closely resembled Pony Boy from The Outsiders) opened the show with a way too long monologue and an entertaining performance of her new song. What didn’t sit well with most of the audience is that Gaga stayed in character the entire night leaving for some awkward moments with Britney Spears.

- Nicki Minaj took over for Lady Gaga’s wackiness this year but took it to a trashier level…literally…it looked like trash. I have no words to describe it so just look at the photo.

- Adele calmed the crowd down with her flawless performance of “Someone Like You”. She looked stunning in black and wowed the audience with her soulful voice. LOVE her!
