Prada S/S 2012
KENNETH JAY LANE Ruby Amethyst Drop Earrings
Ladylike fashions returned to spring runways with a slight vintage feel. We saw pretty 1950s-inspired looks from Prada and Jil Sander, and return to the 1920s jazz age from Louis Vuitton. Oscar de la Renta and Nina Ricci embraced soft feminine hues in their collections worthy of a princess. Their delightful jewellery left us swooning for all things sparkly and feminine.
Jil Sander S/S 2012
Vintage SHERMAN Brown Aurora Borealis Earrings
ERICKSON BEAMON Color Me Crazy Earrings
Prada's gorgeous drop statement earrings are making us reach for exuberant baubles like Kenneth Jay Lane's oversize chandelier earrings.
Jil Sander enlisted Erickson Beamon to supply jewels for the house's S/S collection. The theme was 1950s ladylike stylings, reminiscent of our vintage hero, Sherman.
Louis Vuitton S/S 2012
JENNIFER BEHR Chunky Crystal Strand Headwrap
How could we not love Louis Vuitton's 1920s-inspired looks? The collection featured headbands, which left us reaching for Jennifer Behr's thin crystal headwraps.
Oscar de la Renta S/S 2012
JACQUES FATH Chez MAXIM Jaune Earrings
Oscar de la Renta is all about femininity, and this season is no exception. We love the crystal encrusted button earrings as they remind us of Jacques Fath's 'Chez Maxim' collection.
Nina Ricci S/S 2012
SIMAN TU Butterfly Necklace
Nina Ricci's rich fabrics and textures were paired with statement necklaces in soft pastel hues, prompting us to pull our stunning Siman Tu butterfly necklace out of the closet.

THE LOOK: Michelle Williams wearing a Fred Leighton vintage headband
TRY: Jennifer Behr Art Deco Crystal Silk Headband
The awards season is here, meaning that we are swooning over all the gorgeous red carpet fashions worn by Hollywood A-listers. Last night at the Golden Globes, there were many beautiful gowns, but eye sharp little eyes were on the stunning jewels.
THE LOOK: Charlize Theron wearing a vintage Cartier headband
TRY: Jennifer Behr Chunky Triple Row Crystal Headband
Two Golden Globe nominees, Michelle Williams and Charlize Theron opted for romantic headbands, a look we of course love. The two headbands couldn't have been more different: one was tiara-like with dazzling little diamonds, and the other a black jewelled headwrap echoing the 1920s.
THE LOOK: Heidi Klum wearing a turquoise Lorraine Schwartz necklace
TRY: Siman Tu Aqua Glass Necklace
Supermodel Heidi Klum opted for a more casual, California girl look with her chic and simple beige Calvin Klein dress, accented with a bright turquoise necklace. She looked so fresh and lovely.
THE LOOK: Salma Hayek wearing vintage gold drop earrings
TRY: Erickson Beamon 'Bette Davis Eyes' Earrings
Salma Hayek is a bombshell and she certainly dresses like one. Her gold Gucci column gown was a stunner, and so were her beautiful gold vintage chandelier earrings.
THE LOOK: Julianne Moore wearing bold green Fred Leighton emeralds drop earrings
TRY: Vintage Yves Saint Laurent Jade Earrings
Redhead beauty, Julianne Moore, looked elegant in her black Chanel gown paired with Fred Leighton's bold green emerald drop earrings. We love the green jewel tones -- a subtle yet bright way to stand out in the crowd.
THE LOOK: Elle McPhersen wearing Lorraine Shwartz pave bangles
TRY: Kenneth Jay Lane Double Lion Head Bracelet
The ageless supermodel Elle Macpherson's gown may have been a tad bit bridal for the occasion, but we adore her stacked Lorraine Shwartz bangles. Mixing multiple textures and tones is somewhat of an art form, and Elle really perfected it here.
If Golden Globes looked this good, imagine what the Oscars will be like. Can't wait.

S/S 2012: Carlos Miele; Alexander McQueen; Celine;
Victoria Beckham; Loeffler Randall
Happy New Year! It's time to think bright for spring with 2012's "colour of the year" Tangerine Tango. This bright reddish orange hue appeared on countless runways including Alexander McQueen, Celine, Carlos Miele, Peter Som, and Oscar de la Renta. Accessories, of course, are also following the trend, with shoes and bags from Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Victoria Beckham, Loeffler Randall, and Christian Dior, just to name a few. But let's not forget about bright tangerine jewels!
Alexander McQueen S/S 2012
LEIVANKASH Feather Bracelet
KENNETH JAY LANE Turquoise Coral Brooch
For an antique look, we love both Kenneth Jay Lane's opulent turquoise and coral brooch, and the beautifully simple feather bracelet by LeiVanKash.
Celine S/S 2012
HOUSE OF HARLOW Coral Tribal Ring
NOIR Shaka Lanyard Bracelet
For a more sporty, casual look that echoes Celine S/S 2012, we love Noir's new 'Shaka' lanyard bracelet with gold hardware, and House of Harlow's 'Tribal' ring (it's a little art deco too, no?).
Carlos Miele S/S 2012
KENNETH JAY LANE Coral Drop Earrings
BOUNKIT Topaz Peridot and Coral Bracelet
And for those ultra glamorous moments, we are coveting Kenneth Jay Lane's dramatic oversized chandelier coral earrings, and Bounkit's stunning beaded coral cuff.
