Award Show Accessories
As red carpet devotees and glamour enthusiasts, we think it's practically impossible to resist the excitement of award shows. There's something so utterly enthralling about all the gorgeous gowns and stunning jewels-it's addictive viewing, to put it mildly! While some might say that feasting on these fashion fantasies is an indulgence, we think it's actually an exercise in practicality. After all, your social calendar invariably calls for a few dressy events each year, so it's important to start scouting for ideas as early as possible! Of course, when dressing for formal occasions, the key to creating a truly standout ensemble is to pick the perfect accent pieces, so we've assembled a few fabulous items to help you do just that! Some are super splurges, others are thrifty thrills, but one thing's for sure: you're certain to find a little inspiration in these wonderful award show accessories!
1. Anya Hindmarch Marano Metallic Croc-Effect Clutch ($425)
Some fashion plates pick elaborate minauders, but we prefer an understated and chic choice-like Anya Hindmarch's hard-frame clutch-for a fabulous night out. Petite in stature and sophisticated in color, the mock-croc bag is a timeless essential and a great accompaniment to any evening gown.
2. Simon G. 18K Gold and Diamond Leaf Ring ($8030)
Delicate yet jaw-dropping, this 18K white and rose gold ring boasts a magnificent array of round white diamonds and natural brown diamonds. The ring's leaf shape offers a regal riff on nature and would look stunning on anyone's finger.
3. Giorgio Armani Beauty Rouge d'Armani Lipstick ($30) in 400
One of our favorite ways to instantly look elegant is to reach for a red lipstick-but not any hue will do! No, dear readers, you need something richly pigmented and in a beautiful bold hue, like Giorgio Armani's newest lipstick. Its long-wear formula will hold up through the after party and the unforgettable shade will surely turn heads.
4. Simon G. 18K Gold and Diamond Twist Bracelet ($7480)
The simplicity of this twist bracelet is what makes it so marvelous: each strand of the bracelet is a different kind of gold-white, yellow, and rose. The results are refined and make the perfect setting for a slew of natural round white diamonds.
5. Topshop Secret Platform Shoes ($135) in Metallic
Though we can't predict what color your dress will be, we're pretty certain that it would look lovely with these pretty metallic pumps. The classic lines will work with a wide range of festive frocks, while the hidden platform makes them a comfortable choice for any fete!
6. Simon G. 18K Gold and Diamond Bubble Earrings ($1870)
Featuring a mix of 18K white, yellow, and rose gold and studded with round white diamonds, these earrings are truly showstoppers. We love their unique circular design; it's like the fine-jewelry equivalent of a glass of Krug champagne!
