“Unstoppable” Jewelry: Glam, Gauche & Gawdawful


Red carpet jewelry hunting season is in full swing, and last night’s Unstoppable premiere in Los Angeles brought out some A-list lovelinesss and some D-list dregs.

The Glam:


Rosario Dawson’s dusty blue Stella McCartney gown was a hands-down winner, and her Vhernier jewelry added just the right amount of sparkle. Loving the shoulder-duster earrings -a trend I think we’ll see a lot more of in the months to come. (See why here).

The Gauche:


Why was Real Housewife of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi, at the Unstoppable premiere? Perhaps the better question is: What was she thinking when she put on that outfit? Nevermind. I don’t want to know.

Look, the statement necklace could have rocked – but the lace bustier and piled on gems pushed the look to the wrong side of ‘street walker chic’ in my humble opinion.  Sorry.

The Gaudy:


Bless her, Cloris Leachman is having as huge a heydey as Betty White. And she’s just as saucy – so leopard and layers are working for her in a Mrs. Roper kind of way (look her up, youngsters).

Can I just say, though, that I’m kinda tired of the over-the-top octogenarian fashion statement? These women look great for their age. Being funny doesn’t mean you have to ‘dress funny’. You know?

Here are some other shots from the carpet. Anything strike you?
