When jewelry meets fashion

It’s safe to say that the entire fashion world held their breath during the waiting for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Annual Gala. This special evening represents to many of us what true fashion is all about. The 2010 Gala was a celebration of beauty, talent, fashion and jewelry.
Much have already been said about the dresses of the Gala and although it’s difficult to ignore it- this time we will try to look at the event from the jewelry aspect of it.

It seems that this time, the dresses took all the focus at the Gala and that’s why most celebrities attending decided not wear too many pieces of jewelry (Just like at the Oscars a few months ago). When you wear a dress that lights up in the dark, like Katy Perry wore for example, wearing jewelry might look excessive, however Perry did wear an amazing pink bolt lightning bolts necklace and proved to us that only she can pull off such a look.
Most of the jewelry choices however weren’t as bold as Perry’s choice and we were able to see lots of precious stones on the red carpet and amazing couture pieces that matched the dresses perfectly.

Among the pieces that were noticed during the evening we can mention Marishka Hargitay and her amazing Egyptian beetle necklace that looked both colorful and ethnic, Model Hilary Rhoda that looked astounding with a gorgeous Cartier Onyx and diamond necklace and Emmy Rossum that wore an ethnic inspired necklace by House of Lavande. It seems that the other starlets chose to go for a more classical look with diamond pedants and diamond bracelets and we bless them for their fine choice.
We feel lucky that we don’t have to pick our top favorite dresses because we probably won’t know what to choose from.

Unlike other award ceremonies that are usually more toned down, this evening was all about splurge and the celebration of fashion and that’s probably why we were able to witness such incredible dresses and such amazing pieces of jewelry. We can only hope that all the celebrities will take on this approach in other events as well and will always look glamorous and accessorized and giving us more  eye candies such as this.
