Business on her body, party on her ears! There's a new must-have accessory in town (Hollywood, that is), and it's huge, bedazzled, and oftentimes even more fabulous than the outfit itself. Say hello to the statement earring.
Take Jessica Chastain's red carpet ensemble at the London premiere of The Martian in September. It included a stunning, intricately beaded Elie Saab Couture gown, but who could even notice with those emerald, aquamarine, tourmaline, and diamond masterpieces by Piaget hanging from her ears?
Also serving emerald gorgeousness, Jennifer Lawrence teamed her black, lace Ralph Lauren dress with Neil Lane drop earrings featuring the gem and diamonds at the Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Madrid premiere on Nov. 10.
The key, of course, is that while both of these ladies' dresses were beautiful, they were also monotone, making it easy for the danglers to truly pop. So when you bedazzle your ears, make sure to keep the rest of your clothing elegant and simple.
And it's important to note that you don't need a Beverly Hills budget to rock your own pair of statement earrings! We found a pair of $50 emerald-simulated, pave-dusted stunners from the Rita Hayworth Collection at HSN.com, a top-to-bottom green pair by Tasha for $48 at Nordstrom.com, and even a gorgeous blue and green pair at Target.com for only $8 — and those are just a few emerald options.
