Many gemstones are used for various uses such as construction tools with diamonds. Diamonds are the hardest of all substances therefore it has the ability to cut many materials. We just heard about another use of gemstones that appeals more to the female demographic rather than men’s tools. Actress Mila Kunis reportedly enjoyed a Ruby and Diamond facial!
Sounds weird, doesn’t it? The star splurged a whopping $7000 on this skin treatment to prep her look for her press tour for her new movie Friends with Benefits.
For those who are curious, the procedure is called the HD Diamond and Ruby Peel which uses rubies and diamonds as antioxidants for the skin leaving your skin with a natural glow. Mila has used this procedure in the past for the Golden Globes so she must have been happy with the results to splurge on it again. I think Mila is gorgeous with or without the pricey facial.
What do you think of this procedure? Do you think diamonds and rubies can actually help your skin?
One of the movies I’ve been excited to see is Friends With Benefits staring the stunning Mila Kunis and the gorgeous Justin Timberlake. Remember when we saw them present an award at the Oscars together? During our Oscar Twitter Party so many of you tweeted that those two should hurry up and get together – they would make such a gorgeous couple! Anyways…back on track…the movie comes out this Friday but the New York premiere was Monday night with all the movie’s stars walking the red carpet.
The color red was the highlight of the night worn by Mila Kunis, the hilarious and adorable Emma Stone and the Entourage’s Emmanuelle Chriqui. Both Mila and Emma opted to pairing the vibrant color with yellow gold jewelry. This really compliments the color red nicely for a subtle classy look. Mila also accessorized with long dangle earrings and kept her neck bare to not over do it. If you’re looking to grab more attention go with white gold or silver like Emmanuelle did by stacked silver bangles.
After Sunday’s Oscar awards you’ve without a doubt heard about how purple was the hot color on the red carpet. In my opinion, Mila Kunis wore the color the best in her lilac Elie Saab gown. Another favorite was the two-toned Dolce & Gabbana worn the always stunning, Scarlett Johansson. Academy Award winner Natalie Portman also chose a plum toned dress for the event.
All this purple has got me thinking that I need to add more to my wardrobe but how much purple can you possibly have in your closet? Instead of wearing the color in a dress or blouse, add hints of purple in your jewelry like this Amethyst & White Topaz ring (pictured). This gorgeous cocktail ring would not only add the perfect hint of color to your outfit but it won’t hurt the bank either at only $50. A pair of Amethyst studs are also a subtle way to add a violet splash to your look.
Will you be following the red carpet trend by adding purple to your wardrobe?
As we thought it might be, The Kings Speech was the big winner on Oscar night. I think that war-era femininity might be responsible for the resurgence in lace this year, such as on Mila Kunis, Amanda Seyfried, Madonna at the after-party and, most notably, Scarlett Johansson who just. Looked. Amazing. I know some in the blogosphere are torn about this one, but I loved it. Despite all the yelling paparazzi, screaming fans and flashing cameras, Scarlett somehow always manages to look totally relaxed on the red carpet, like she was born to be there.
Despite The King’s Speech impressive influence, The Black Swan seemed to make the biggest fashion-impression this year – and I’m holding it responsible for the reserved palate of colors we saw. Other than a few ladies in red (Sandra Bullock, we love you!), it seemed like everyone was in variations of black/grey or white/beige. Not only that, did you notice a number of gowns were decked out in feathers and feathery fabrics (Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts, Sharon Stone, Halle Berry and others).
For the most part, jewelry was kept simple and classic, with a perfect pair of diamond studs appearing over and over. It’s a good reminder that when you’ve got fancy fabrics or necklines going on, it’s wise to let your jewelry be an accessory, not a distraction. And you can never, ever go wrong with a pair of diamond studs.
One noteworthy jewelry statement was made by hostess Anne Hathaway, who let her baubles match her bubbly personality with an attention-grabbing cocktail ring. I found 5-carat rock version for an easy $45. Nothing will make you feel more outrageously glamorous for a better price.
The 83rd Academy Awards were held last night and we couldn’t be more excited to tune in to see all the glamorous fashion and jewelry. One piece of jewelry that we think shined the most were earrings. The Ice.com team discussed our favorite earrings this morning and some that we wish the starlets would have reconsidered.
Emeralds: Reese Witherspoon and Annette Bening both wore dark gowns with vibrant green emerald earrings. Reese’s Neil Lane emeralds were highlighted nicely with her high ponytail. Both Reese and Annette’s drop earrings closely resembled Angelina Jolie’s famous emeralds she wore to the Oscars in 2009. You can get the look for less with these green Amethyst drop earrings.
Colorful Gems: Gwyneth Paltrow was a favorite amongst many in her Calvin Klein silver sleek dress and colorful Louis Vuitton multi-gemstone earrings and brooch. We’re unsure of what the exact design is but the colors are gorgeous with her skin tone.
Dangle Earrings: The newly slimmed down Jennifer Hudson looked ravishing in her tangerine Versace gown. She paired it with long diamond dangle earrings that looked lightweight and comfortable. She was definitely a fan favorite of the night.
Tassles: The biggest jewelry surprise was probably Oscar award winning actress Natalie Portman’s maroon Tiffany & Co. tassel earrings. The consensus at the office is that they were a miss for us but a few of our Twitter followers disagreed that they were a hit. What do you think?
Disappointment of the night: Marisa Tomei is a favorite actress to many, including Lady Gaga who recently said she would want Marisa to play her in a movie of her life. We are not only disappointed in her choice of gown but I wonder, what was she thinking putting those earrings on? Would you wear these flower themed gemstone earrings?
Other honorable mentions were Mila Kunis’ diamond and platinum Neil Lane ribbon earrings, Jennifer Hudson’s long drop earrings and Oprah Winfrey’s fabulous diamond earrings.
