Back in May, we heard that Parisian jeweler Cartier had created a few replicas of Grace Kelly’s jewelry collection for a new biopic starring Nicole Kidman, directed by Olivier Dahan. Well, fellow jewelry mavens, get a tissue to wipe the drool off now because the trailer for Grace of Monaco has arrived!
As if we didn’t have enough reasons to be jealous of Nicole Kidman, enter five exact replicas of Grace Kelly’s jewels that Mrs. Keith Urban got to wear while filming. The baubles that have been recreated are a 10.47 carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, a diamond-encrusted poodle broach, a three-strand diamond necklace and a diamond and ruby tiara.
Ahhh the life of a Hollywood A-lister. Check out some of these jewels our girl Nicole wore while filming.
Check out the trailer here.
You know we’ll have our blinders on for all the blingy jewelry moments in this film (while we play ‘Pretty, Pretty Princess’ and weep and eat Ben & Jerry’s, longing for our dreams of being a princess to finally come true).
Diamond jewelry was out in full force at the Palm Springs International Film Festival yesterday, which makes sense since the Opening Night Gala was sponsored by Cartier.
And while the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, Oscar winner-Marion Cotillard, and the next Anne Hathaway – the divine Anna Kendrick (run, don’t walk to see her in Up In the Air), graced us with their presence and sported stunning jewelry with their couture – you have to leave it to Miss Mimi to really class up the joint.
Mariah Carey, who was given the Breakthrough Actress Award for her performance in Precious, appeared on the red carpet in more diamond bling than a Liberace convention. Witness the wind-catcher earrings, the diamond cuffs, the butterfly right hand ring – AND of course her 17-carat pink diamond engagement ring from hubby, Nick Cannon.
But it wasn’t her carat-count that had tongues wagging. Nope. It was her drunken, rambling acceptance speech that will now appear next to ‘cringe’ in the dictionary. You know it’s bad when Sean Penn quipped before handing out a music award to songwriter-producer T Bone Burnett,
“Think anything’s going to make YouTube tonight?”
Yup. It did. And you can see a snippet of the action here.
Ahhh, Awards Season begins again! Stay tuned for People’s Choice Awards coverage here and on Jewelry.com tomorrow!
