… anyone who knows fashion says aubergine.

Vintage Cartier bracelets floated around Jessica Alba’s wrist. One is a priceless ruby and diamond bracelet by Cartier Paris, with ten oval faceted rubies and loads of diamonds set into yellow and white gold. A yellow gold and diamond bracelet with shell motifs, set in gold and platinum, retails for $44,000. A third bracelet is made from yellow gold set with diamonds, with a retail price of $39,000.

Alba’s look was rounded out by a Jimmy Choo bag, oh yeah, and diamond and a pair of 20.82 cts. t.w. yellow gold Creole hoop earrings, valued at $92,000, a 1960’s diamond shell motif bracelet, valued at $44,000, and a 1959 diamond feather motif bracelet, valued at $39,000.

Feathers were a big trend at the Academy Awards and I’m glad that Alba choose what I will call “stationary jewelry,” for this red carpet.
I think that drop earrings would’ve been a mistake since the feathers and flowing train of the dress provide more than enough movement for the eye to enjoy. With the earrings staying close to the lobe and elegant, light bracelets she avoided any competition with the dress.
I think this look is great, especially since Alba is expecting and the color, and feathers, help to take the focus off of her belly.
