Carrie Underwood and Kate Hudson Go Long in Statement Earrings

Carrie Underwood

The always-chic country singer looked like a walking watercolor painting at the 2016 CMT Music Awards in a flowy chiffon gown by Canadian designer Mikael D. As a counterpoint to the ultrafeminine floral style, her jewels—which included a chained two-finger ring and Deco-inspired earrings—gave her a bit of a rock-star edge.

Kate Hudson

The rom-com actress took the plunge at an after-party at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Her clementine-colored dress, from British brand Solace London, looked tailor-made for the French Riviera (note the wave pattern decorating the halter bodice), and her tassel-style earrings—in yellow gold, of course—couldn’t be better suited to summer.
