Last night saw the great, the good and the gorgeous of the worlds of music, film and fashion assemble at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2012 Costume Institute Gala. Whilst the eyes of many were on the fabulous frocks, Adorn London had its peepers firmly fixed on the jewels. And boy, did we spot some hot hot trends.
Coloured jewels put in an appearance courtesy of Paula Patton’s lavender crystal bead earrings and January Jones’ fab deco-style turquoise cabochon choker from Cartier.
Anna Wintour also opted for colour and rocked her trademark doubled-up gemstone chokers from H. Stern whilst actress Camille Belle and supermodel Karolina Kurkova – sporting Fred Leighton earrings – showed how to pair sparkly jewels with equally sparkly attire and still look chic.
Last but not least, we loved some gals’ innovative approach to jewellery styling. Jamie King paired a Topshop frock with a Bulgari necklace turned round to fall the length of her back, Gwyneth Paltrow worked the Native American trend with a pair of dreamcatcher-style earrings and Kate Bosworth put a contemporary spin on a classic look with a stack of diamond encrusted wristwear and lobe-spanning earrings all courtesy of Fred Leighton.
All in all, a dazzling night seems to have been had by everyone!
