The Top 10 Best Jewelry Looks of the Golden Globes Awards

We had a fantastic time last night watching the Golden Globe Awards, but as usual, our favorite part was seeing what everyone wore on the red carpet. It was hard to pick our 10 favorite celebs, but without further ado, and in no particular order, we give you the Top 10 Best Jewelry Looks of the Golden Globes Awards.

1. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence won her third Golden Globe award last night, this time for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical, for her role in Joy.

J. Law looked stunning in a crimson Dior gown, but the real show-stopper was her bib necklace, from Chopard‘s “High Jewelry” collection. The stunning piece was made of over 150 carats and set in 18k white gold.

2. Emmy Rossum

How to Get Kate Middleton’s Style

In honor of Kate Middleton’s birthday, the future Queen of England, and Duchess of Cambridge, we’re taking a look at some of her favorite brands.

Read: British Designers

 1. Burberry

Kate Middleton Burberry

 Burberry handbags available on PORTERO.comBurberry Prorsum Calloway Tote $1,656. Burberry Prorsum Star Studded Olive Tote $1,150. Burberry Prorsum The Petal Clutch $975. Burberry Prorsum Armor Stud Sling Bag $506

 

Britain-based Burberry is best known by its tartan pattern and trench coats. As a good Brit, the Duchess of Cambridge wears this label quite often. As we’ve come to expect with items worn by the future Queen, this Burberry trench coat sold out in every size within 24 hours! Although we believe a trench coat to be an item of clothing every one should have in their closet, Burberry also has a superb (as the British say) handbag collection. Be sure to visit our Burberry page to find some Pristine and Pre-owned Burberry bags and accessories.

2. Alexander McQueen

The most iconic Alexander McQueen moment for the Duchess of Cambridge was undoubtedly her wedding day, when she wore a design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Since then, the two women have collaborated in creating staple wardrobe pieces that are as modern as they are modest. The Duchess has worn Alexander McQueen in several occasions, most recently during the Baptism of her second child, Princess Charlotte. Although Kate Middleton prefers a subdued wardrobe, Alexander McQueen has always known how to push the envelope. Whether it’s with Armadillo Shoes, of skull clutches, McQueen knows how to please the most forward of fashionistas.

Alexander McQueen bags available on PORTERO.comAlexander McQueen Studded Brown Suede Clutch $1,300. Alexander McQueen Ostrich Novak Satchel $1,810. Alexander McQueen Britannia Skull Clutch $1,150. Alexander McQueen Elvie Hot Pink Patent Bag $575

Bag Crush: Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton

We hardly even recognized the gorgeously glam and pouty Michelle Williams with in this Louis Vuitton ad. She’s caressing the Capucines tote — leather at its finest.

Fit for a princess! Let’s help New York’s newest resident out

In the most exciting Royals news on this side of the Atlantic, Princess Eugenie (daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson) is moving to New York. Like so many 23-year-olds before her, she will chase her hopes and dreams in the Big Apple. And this isn’t a pleasure trip  – Eugenie will be working at Paddle8, an online auction house that collaborates with non-profits.

Inspired by Stylite’s guide to Eugenie’s life in New York City, we’ve offered up some of our favorite handbags and accessories so that she can prove that royalty has no geographic boundaries.

THE BAG: Diplomacy comes in all forms – Eugnie has proven she isn’t afraid to make a statement with her handbag before, so here are some she might try toting around the city.

1. If the princess wants to represent her homeland abroad, she might opt for a Burberry Ashbury bag. It suits her youth by eschewing the expected nova check in favor of gold leather.

2. This is the time to try out an American designer! This Proenza Schouler XL PS1 will fit her work necessities while flaunting the favorite label of New York socialites. Plus, that color!

3. Eugenie’s mom has been spotted with a Birkin and they are heirlooms. Nothing says on-her-way like the ultimate Hermès it-bag.

THE WATCH: Even princesses have to be punctual. We like the idea of Eugenie to rely on a traditional wristwatch instead of an iPhone.

1. You’re in America now, so what about the Cartier Tank Americaine? We like the bracelet feel of this white gold version.

2. This Rolex Cellini watch calls out elegance, but the feel of the leather strap makes it very day and work appropriate.

3. Since Brits are always off to Polo matches, Eugenie Piaget Polo quartz watch. Bonus: Princesses can always carry off diamonds.

THE JEWELRY: The crown jewels will presumably stay in England. (Won’t they?) But that doesn’t mean that Eugenie can’t accessorize.

1. A pair of classic diamond stud earrings that she can wear day and night will be perfect for balancing a work-socialite lifestyle.

2. Young and urban? The Hermès Collier de Chien (CDC) will give Eugenie a downtown edge when she feels rebellious, but not scandalous.

3. Eugenie seems to favor more delicate jewelry, so a Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace  will suit her just perfectly.

Four Jennifers and their chic Oscar clutches

And the award for most popular Oscar clutch goes to …. the small box evening bag that you can easily carry with one hand.

We’re strong believers in the perfect evening bag is essential to looking your most glamorous. There’s no better inspiration than the red carpet. At the Oscars, the top handbag designers were split between Judith Leiber, Salvatore Ferragamo, Roger Vivier, Jimmy Choo and Alexander McQueen.

It just so happens that most of our favorite bags were carried by Jennifers.

First up, Jennifer Lawrence (above), best actress winner, paired her Dior gown with a Roger Vivier clutch.

Happy Birthday Grace Kelly!

Born on Nov. 12, 1929 — Grace Kelly went from movie star to royalty.

As a style icon, her impeccable taste stands the test of time. When she was pregnant, she carried the Hermès sac à dépêches to cover her stomach. So associated with the princess, Hermès renamed the top-handle structured bag the “Kelly” in 1956.

We love this stunning tri-color box Kelly and we’re sure that Princess Grace would have too.

Best dressed at the Costume Institute Gala

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City always has the best red carpet. Hands down. You might disagree, but we’re pretty sure that no other event features so many celebrities who are dressed by designers who want to make a statement. That translates into taking chances. So Rooney Mara made see-through Givenchy lace look demure, Kirsten Dunst pulled off a full-length Rodarte skirt suit with aplomb, Anna Wintour had a lobster sprawled on her gown and Sarah Jessica Parker sparkled in a full-coverage floral Little House on the Praire-esque Valentino gown.

Speaking of covered up, Rihanna is our pick for best dressed. Though Carey Mulligan’s mirrored Prada is a close second, Rihanna’s downright understated black crocodile dress from Tom Ford’s fall 2012 collection. Sleeves on the red carpet look add some drama. What you can’t see in this photo is the plunging back.

We would have paired it with this Nancy Gonzalez croc clutch. Not that she needs to change a thing, but just in case she wants somewhere to put her lipstick and phone.
