While perusing celebrity photos taken during the month of June—my favorite of which are posted below—two things became clear: Great modern style includes (and maybe even requires) bold, innovative jewelry designs.
And, secondly, the earring is still the go-to jewelry piece for stylists and self-styling celebs. For now, that is.
Necklaces, particularly bibs and other styles that take up lots of clavicle real estate, are also catching on big-time. The blinding Messika diamond bib Beyoncé wears in her new “Apes**t” video (below) makes a convincing case for necklaces with scarf-like proportions. As does the sparkling Lorraine Schwartz collar model Candice Huffine wore (also below) to the CFDA Awards earlier this month.
Here are nine winning red carpet jewelry looks—plus one marvelous jewelry-in-film moment I couldn’t resist popping in—from June 2018.
