Lorraine Reigns at VMA Bling!

photo 2-3 Once again, Lorraine reigns as the brains behind the red carpet bling. It comes as no surprise that Lorraine Schwartz steals the spotlight for most placements at this years VMA Awards. It seemed as if nearly every female celebrity was donning a piece of her and/or her sister Ofira’s line. She is the undeniable “pour some sugar on me” jewel go to for any award show these days. I love that her jewels come in an assortment of styles and a plethora of palates. She has something to go with just about anything anyone who’s anybody is wearing! Most notably, Lorraine Schwartz Jewels drenched the Queen B, whom she proudly proclaims is her muse. See Beyonce’s beautiful face framed in over 100 carats of  hand-carved black jade and with white diamonds. Now that’s a chandelier! She can double it as a mobile for Blu’s crib when she gets home. Also pictured is one of LS’s many diamond bauble rings you saw that evening.

See some of the many stars who chose Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Jewels for the evening:

Kim K opted for simple jewels since she already was weighed down with tons of double sided tape to engineer her ideal cleavage in Balmain. She wore giant diamond studs to keep her enourmous engagement ring company on the carpet.

photo 5   Kelly Rowland in Kaufman Franco went the overboard route with large earrings, stacked bracelets and a coral cabochon ring, all set with brown rose cuts and diamonds. photo 4   Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B. couture was beautiful but made me yawn in this outfit. I wish it were a dress and not pants. The length of the top was awkward and the bracelet needs to go. Her black diamond LS ear climbers and rings were a nice touch though. photo 3 Sadly, the only thing I liked about Taylor Swifts look was her hair and makeup and the jewelry wasn’t anything special. I am not a fan of this Mary Katrantzou romper suit or the shoe. Please leave these to Bey & JLo. photo 2 Only Rita Ora knows how to take all the elements of elegance and raunch them up but still look good doing it. It is not for us to understand. I see what they were going for but the Donna Karan atelier look came off as cheap yet hot Hollywood glam. However, the art deco style ruby stud earrings and diamond LS chocker were gorgeous!photo 1

Beyonce in Zuhair Murad equals perfection. She does everything with class! The LS earrings and oversized cocktail ring were the perfect addition to the exiting number she wore.

VMA’s Worst Dressed … Jewelry!

MTV-VMAs-Logo-590x900 I can’t tell you how confused I was while watching the VMA’s last night. I swear to you it was some of the worst fashion I have seen in a long time. I am still trying to figure why + how some of these celeb’s stylists allowed them to walk of out the house looking beyond tacky! The best explantation that I can conjure up is that the entire red carpet was a Bird Cage costume tribute in honor of the Robin Williams slide show that was shown!

Some of the fashion was so horrific I almost don’t care to share. However, I sternly without any hesitation other than the thought of Taylor Swift’s flat rear in her outfit last night, dub Amber Rose my worst dressed of the entire evening in a silver chain-link halter dress by Laura Dewitt. It kills me to do so because she is so sweet but we are simply not all created equal to Rihanna. She has a bit toning up to do before bearing it all in what looks like a giant piece of costume jewelry paired with a matching bra & panties – which was a poor attempt to de-slutify the awful ensemble. If you’re going to wear jewelry as clothes, there needs to be some form of lining/foundation/material in it. Perhaps a high waisted boy-short would’ve been better?

People were quick to pic-stitch Amber Rose & Rose McGowen along side of one another calling it an EPIC FAIL of attempting to re-invent the look. image In my opinion this reminded me of what Kim Kardashian wore in her Playboy spread circa 2007. Except hers were pearls and we all know that makes it classier (sarcasm). Honestly, Kim’s look was hot given the context. Appropriately worn in an iconic magazine and not worn on the red carpet made it acceptable. What kind of husband wants their wife dressed in public like this anyway? I don’t think that would fly with Kanye! I’m just saying…

photo 2Sorry Amber, you’re gorgeous and l love you, so much that I named my adopted horse after you because she’s pretty and blonde with a lovely backside. But please don’t do this again!

So So Sophia!

Sofia-Vergara-So-Sofia-Kay-JewelersHollywood’s sexiest latin lady of the red carpet, Sofia Vergara, has partnered with Kay® Jewelers to launch her jewelry collection, aptly named SOFIA VERGARA so Sofia™.

The collection captures the look of fine jewelry at an affordable price. Sofia’s cheerful, vibrant and sultry style shines through many of the pieces in the collection.

She pays homage to her home country of Columbia by inserting hidden hints of emeralds in the sides and under galleries of the jewelry. She has created for the public a collection that showcases her personal taste. She recently donned two pieces of So Sophia, before announcing the line, creating a media frenzy suggesting she had gotten engaged to her beau. A genius PR move on her part to promote the unveling of the line! 

Sofia is about as obsessed with jewels as they come. I have had the pleasure of working with her style team in the past and she is definitely hands on with the accessories that make up her finishing looks.

While you’re not getting the luxurious jewels that Sophia adorns on the red carpet, you can purchase her signature line at a fraction of the cost in sterling silver and 10K gold creations with lab created bold gemstones and genuine diamonds.

The SOFIA VERGARA so Sofia™ collection is available exclusively at select Kay® Jewelers stores or online at kay.com and retails from $230 – $1600 USD.

Kudos Sophia! See some of my picks from the collection here:
