Cannes Opening Ceremony Jewellery 2013

Hollywood has moved to Cannes. As have most of the diamonds and jewellery of the world right now. I’m not really one for all this celeb spotting and I don’t want to be a regurgitated version of the tabloid blogs, but this is what’s happening right now and when stylists are making statements and contributing to trends, best we watch.

These gems were all spotted at the Premier of the Great Gatsby and the Cannes film festival opening ceremony. Where it was pouring with rain. And yet these girls managed to look amazing.


Cara Delevingne made a dramatic entrance in black lace by Burberry. She was dripping in Chopard diamonds. Normally I am not a fan of wearing a necklace, ring and earrings but with that fierce face, she could pull anything off.


How much do you love the hairdo? Nicole Kidman wore simple diamond studs and let her outfit and hairstyle do most of the talking.


Isla Fisher wears a Bulgari necklace with a gorgeous red dress. Love the statement necklace and that she decided for a fun piece and not a typical diamond necklace.

Cindy Crawford does not look a day over 30. Seriously, I want this lady’s genes. And earrings. They are from Chopard Fine Jewellery and probably cost as much as a house. Just saying.

And Solange came out er, swinging in the jewellery stakes. Her earrings are also from Chopard and worked so well with her dress. Always one to mix it up, props to her for making a classy statement with her jewellery.


Lana Del Rey wore stunning Chopard earrings which were almost hidden in her hair. Pity that.

As you can see, Chopard ruled the jewellery roost. Well played ladies, well played.


The Jewellery at the 2013 Met Ball

So the Met Ball has been and gone and most of you have probably seen the dresses, who was the best dressed, who just messed up totally (ahem Kim Kardashian) but not much has been said about the jewellery. The Costume Institute Gala threw the event for the ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I like that the theme was punk and I expected to see lots of studs, spikes and less sparkly bling on the carpet than usual. But some stars just decided that they wouldn’t dress to the theme (lame) and looked as if they were off to the Oscars.

My best jewellery of the event was seen on the following stars;


Cara Delevigne looked amazing in her spiked jacket but I loved the ear cuffs and layered necklaces. I’m not normally a fan of mixing silver and gold but she makes this work.


Rita Ora brought the rings out to play. Which I like. I like a whole lot.


As much as Nicole Richie’s hair looks like a granny’s, the earcuff puts her on my best jewellery list. LOVE it and this makes me want to go out and buy my own.


YES! How much do you love Katy Perry going on Dolce and Gabbanna? (See my post here). Love that she wore David Yurman accessories and rocked it. SHe could have walked straight off the catwalk!


And of course Sienna Miller just kicked it out the park. The hair accessory and the ear cuffs and stack. She wins for me. Hands down.

And then there was some jewellery that was alright, not amazing, but alright.


Blake Lively looked gorgeous and these earrings are lovely but the furthest from punk you could get. So as much as I love them, they would not have been my choice for this event.

Miley Cyrus also had a bad hair day but I had to show you her full length finger ring. I enjoy it although I am not quite sure how practical it will be in real life.

Mary Kate Olsen wore two gorgeous necklaces. But they don’t go together as far as I’m concerned. Also, she looks less than happy to be there. I will happily take the cross necklace though.

And then there was just the downright horrible.

designer tabitha simmons

Designer Tabitha Simmons. The idea was there and she was so close. But the earrings are hopelessly too big. Love the crown. But the earrings just take it over to the questionable side.


Diane Kruger kept the accessories to a minimum but I appreciate the cuffs. A little clunky but then again it’s fits the theme so I would give her a 6/10.

jennifer morrison

Jennifer Morrison stuck to the trend of wearing rings on every finger however these creepy crawlies give me the heebie jeebies! Looks awesome if you are not arachnophobic.

jessica parker

I don’t know about Jessica Parker’s head piece. Yes it was theme-inspired but I can’t get away from the fact that it would have looked more at home on a Las Vegas showgirl.


Jessica Alba did something different with her earrings here. The jury is still out on whether it looks great or makes her look like an alien.


Look, now I love Solange. But the earrings and the event did not go together. At all.

And there you have it. What jewellery did you love? Think I have missed anyone out? Let me know below!
