Lively’s Turquoise Jewelry

Blake Lively is always stunning on the red carpet and at the New York City premiere of her new movie ‘Savages’ was no exception. Looking gorgeous and ready for Summer wearing a floor length yellow chiffon Gucci dress along with two of Summer’s hottest jewelry looks: turquoise jewelry and stacked bangles.

Turquoise jewelry is the perfect Summer accessory! It doesn’t matter what year it is or what’s the latest trend, I recommend to wear turquoise every Summer. It looks fantastic with tanned skin and is always in style. It goes with just about everything from your basic black, browns and greys to your crisp whites and can be worn with coral tones. You can also do as Blake did and pair it with golden hues.  It can be worn out for a night out on the town or for a casual day shopping.

Do you wear turquoise jewelry in the Summer?

Blake Lively "Savages" New York City Premiere - Arrivals

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Sparkly Ladies

The Twilight Saga, either you love it or you hate. There’s been much hype over the movie, as with all of them and Twi-hards are eagerly awaiting the premiere this Friday. Earlier this week, the Hollywood premiere of the movie was held and the stars of the movie looked amazing on the red black carpet.

There was sequins and sparkly embellishments on many of the women in the cast. Kristen Stewart aka Bella Swan, looked mature in her long purple J. Mendel gown with a thigh high split. All the ladies in the Cullen clan where dressed to impress wearing long gowns. Ashley Greene pulled off the vamp-look with a stunning red Donna Karen dress with matching lips and nails. She opted for a black & gold ring that broke up the all-red ensemble.

One of my favorite looks of the night was by Nikki Reed (pictured right). She wore a Grecian Marchesa gown in a fabulous minty green accented with gold sequins. I loved her long drop earrings featuring an array of earth-tone colored gemstones.

Are you planning on seeing the new Twilight movie?

Spotted: Bold Crystal Jewelry on Gossip Girl

I have no shame in admitting I’m a sucker for watching Gossip Girl. It’s dramatic, funny, sexy and fashionable. Every character on the show has a top-notch wardrobe full of high-end designers. It’s incredibly fun to see what new outfits will appear in every scene. Main characters Serena and Blaire are the focus of the show played by Black Lively and Leighton Meester but Serena’s mother Lily often steals the spotlight with her classy yet sexy fashion sense. I recently came across this photo of the stars on the set of the show and couldn’t help but drool when I saw Lily’s necklace.

Lily is played by Kelly Rutherford who I find has a very similar style on and off screen. Her necklace is draped with large clear crystals that kind of look like rocks. If you want to get a similar look, Ice has a very similar style crystal bracelet (pictured right) from our SNO of Sweden Collection.  It’s a large statement piece that will go with many outfits since the crystal chips are clear.

Would you wear large clear statement pieces like these?

Elizabeth Hurley’s Sapphire Engagement Ring

We’re all familiar with the most famous sapphire engagement ring now owned to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. But actress Elizabeth Hurley is giving Kate a run for her money with her new engagement ring. The 46 year old beauty announced her engagement to Australian cricket star Shane Warne the other day.

The bride-to-be was seen in St. Andrews, Scotland flashing a huge sapphire and diamond ring where Warne supposedly proposed. We caught a glimpse of the ring in PopSugar and couldn’t help but make the comparisons to Kate’s ring but Hurley’s ring is much more modern. The ring has a platinum setting with a ginormous 9-carat center blue sapphire accompanied by a 2-carat trillion cut diamond on each side. It’s quite stunning. Sapphire also happens to be Warne’s birthstone.

Would you like to be proposed to with a sapphire engagement ring?

Molly Sims Gets Married

It was only four months ago we announced model/actress Molly Sims was engaged and now she’s married! This past weekend the blond beauty married movie producer Scott Stuber in Napa Valley. After seeing her wedding photos in PopSugar I was pleasantly surprised by how simple yet romantic Molly’s wedding day look was.

We’re often used to seeing celebs going over-the-top with their wedding dresses in huge princess-like dresses, showing off lots of skin and pounds of makeup. Molly Sims looked simply breath-taking in an elegant lace Marchesa that hugged her supermodel figure. Her hair was up in a high chignon that allowed her diamond earrings to get some attention. The most attention grabbing jewelry was of course her cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.

The couple looked really happy and cute — giggling and kissing before saying their official I do’s. Celeb guests Fergie, Josh Duhamel and Vince Vaughn attended the wedding. I love that Sims chose a red velvet wedding cake. Yummy!

Sims will be hosting a Project Runway spin-off show called Project Accessories which will be on the search to discover the next big jewelry designer. Can’t wait to see a show all about jewelry!

Congrats to the newlyweds Molly and Scott!

Hot Celeb Jewelry This Week

There’s always a party, movie premiere, fundraising event that you can catch the hottest celebrities at any night of the week. A few sparkly celeb sightings this week caught my eye that I wanted to share with you lovelies.

First up is Jenny from the block wearing a handful of sparkly diamond rings at Pure Nightclub in Las Vegas this past weekend. I’ll all for big statement pieces and loved that she paired it with silver nail polish. My co-worker Elissa has been sporting silver polish lately and it’s fabulous! What do you think of Jennifer Lopez’s look – do you think 4 large rings worn at the same time is too much?

The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco was also  seen in Vegas this weekend sporting a simple initial necklace. This caught our eye not only because the initial is covered in diamonds but because we’ve been seeing another “K” girl sporting a very similar necklace. Katie Holmes has been seen over a dozen times wearing this initial necklace but with the “S” initial for her daughter Suri as we covered in a previous post.

Rachel Evan Wood always looks edgy and dramatic but remains classy. We adore that she loves black diamonds just as much as us. She’s often seen on the red carpet showing off her black diamond studs with her cropped hair cut. At the LA premiere of the George Clooney/ Ryan Gosling’s new movie The Ides of March Rachel went with a black and white look. She layered multiple necklaces with more black diamonds and white pearls. Love this style and they look a lot like this long black diamond necklaces and a long pearl & agate necklace from Ice. These both can be layered to create a similar look to Rachel’s.

Those were my favorite celeb jewelry looks this week. Did any stars catch your eye this week?

 

Get These Emmy Looks For Less

Yesterday we highlighted some of our favorite jewelry from the Emmy Awards. Some of you asked where you could get similar looks so we’re happy to help. We couldn’t help but notice these pieces of jewelry closely resembled some at Ice which we highlighted in the images below. Who doesn’t want to have red carpet worthy looks…at a fraction of the cost?

Floral Jewelry

One of the most attractive couples of the evening was Heidi Klum and her husband Seal. It’s always hard to predict what Heidi will show up wearing, her style is so diverse but she always looks incredible. Although her dress was quite the attention grabber, our eyes were drawn to the huge floral earrings and ring she wore. A much more affordable alternative if you want to achieve this look would be with our purple and white CZ earrings and matching ring from our Gallery 10 Collection.

 

 

Multi-Gemstone

The evening was held together by one woman….Jane Lynch. The Glee star was funny and entertaining without the crude controversial punch lines of many previous award show hosts. This is the type of host we’ve been waiting for. Normally, Jane Lynch isn’t a celeb we have our style eyes on but she was looking fab Sunday night changing into several gowns and jewelry.  (She even referenced the Spanx she was wearing…hilarious!) Her red carpet look was our favorite. She wore an eggplant colored strapless gown with multi-gemstone jewelry. Her earrings were a cluster of color similar to these multi-gem silver earrings.

Black Diamonds

In our previous post we mentioned some edgy pieces of jewelry that caught our eye. Gwyneth was one of the several women who wore black diamond jewelry and paired it with a sexy Emilio Pucci dress. She wore black diamond drop earrings that were surrounded by sparkly white diamonds. They bare a striking resemblance to our 2 carat black and white diamond earrings.

Cuff Bracelet

Sofia Vergara was an all around winner Sunday night. She was one of the best dressed, her show Modern Family won award after award and her jewelry was to die for. She wore huge Columbian emerald earrings creating a nice contrast with her coral gown. She also accessorized with a fabulous yellow gold cuff bracelet which looks a lot like one of my favorite cuffs at Ice.

Zac Posen Gets Our Emmy Vote

Have any of you been attending New York Fashion Week shows? Or following it on Twitter like me? I love all the excitement around all the latest fashion trends hitting the runways. It’s so much fun to see all the glamorous models and beautiful clothes and accessories. One designer I had my eye on was Zac Posen. I managed to get a glimpse of his 2012 Spring Collection and was drooling over the evening gowns that are totally red carpet worthy.

Since the Emmy Awards are this Sunday I thought it might be fun to pick a few of Zac Posen’s gowns and predict who might wear it on the Emmy red carpet. At last year’s Emmy’s Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks wore a feathery lavender Zac Posen gown that definitely turned heads.

Take a look at these gowns and tell us who you can image wearing it at the Emmy’s.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2012 - Zac Posen - Runway

This satin gown, with the combination of bold jewelry has a beautiful old Hollywood feel to it. Stunning. I can see this look on classy stars like Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl or Christina Applegate who will be staring in a new TV comedy Up All Night. Past Emmy winner Claire Danes would also shine in this gown.

This curve-hugging dress has Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez written all over it. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing someone like 30 Rock’s Jane Krakoski or Jennifer Love Hewitt in something like this to change it up.

Even though this is technically a Spring collection, I think this shade of blue is so perfect for Fall. Especially paired with the blue jewels the model is wearing. Would look great paired with London Blue Topaz jewelry I hope someone walks the red carpet with it. I’m picturing some young starlets like Blake Lively or Lea Michelle of Glee. Perhaps even Eva Longoria, she looks ravishing in everything.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2012 - Zac Posen - RunwayLeave it to model Coco Rocha to deliver this show stopper gown. Isn’t it beautiful? You have to be a true star to wear something like this. I’d love to see Emmy nominees Gwyneth Paltrow or Kate Winslet in this or something similar. A nice cuff bracelet would complete this look.

What do you think of these gowns? Which stars do you predict will wear these looks?

New Fall TV Fashion to Look Out For

September is the month of season finale’s of your favorite summer TV shows like Entourage, True Blood and Breaking Bad but what we’ve all been waiting for is for our favorite Fall TV shows to premiere. So many Fall shows to keep your fashionable eye out for wardrobe inspiration. Here are some of our picks for most fashionable TV shows to stay tuned for.

Gossip Girl: Blaire and Serena may be the Queen B’s of the Upper Eastside but they sure know how to dress. You can expect nothing but the best on them from huge designer purses, to big bold necklaces, rings, breathtaking dresses and shoes!! Spoiler Alert! The beautiful Elizabeth Hurley is joining the cast this season and I’m sure she’ll look fabulous.

New Girl: This is a new comedy starring my girl crush Zooey Deschanel. With a last name with Chanel in it you know it’s in her genes to be stylish. Zooey pulls of the adorably cute yet sexy look perfectly and after watching a preview for this show her personal style definitely shines through in her character Jessica Day. The premise of the show is Jessica catches her boyfriend cheating and then moves in with three single guys. Let the good times begin! Can’t wait to watch this.

Charlie’s Angels: Yup, they redid this classic and it actually doesn’t look bad. In the trailer I was pleasantly surprised with how stylish the angels are and loved the long dangly earrings they were sporting. How they run around in them, I don’t know, but they pull it off. I loved the movies with Drew Barrymore and she’s actually the producer of this series so it should be good.

Desperate Housewives: The final season of the show has arrived and the ladies of Wisteria Lane haven’t looked better. Gabrielle and Bree are always the most put together woman on the block in my opinion. I wonder if there will be any new additions to the cast we should be watching out for. I smell drama.

What shows are you most looking forward to watching this Fall?

Join the conversation, our Facebook fans are telling us who their favorite fictional TV character is (was) their fashion icon. Some of the favorites were Carrie from Sex & The City, Joan Holloway from Mad Men and Erica Kane from All M Children.

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!

What were your favorite moments of the VMAs?
