Update to original post of September3, 2010): Well, it’s official. Jesse James and Kat Von D are engaged, according to People.The vintage(?) diamond ring I spotted on her back in September must have been the real deal. Seems a little fast if you ask me. Hmmm…
Call me crazy, but that is, indeed, a diamond on Kat Von D’s ring finger, right?
The heavily-inked artist was out in LA celebrating both the opening of her new gallery, Wonderland, and her new relationship with Sandra Bullock’s lying, cheating ex – Jesse James – when photogs snapped a few close-up shots of what appears to be a lovely vintage diamond engagement ring.
While it’s no surprise the tattooed twosome found some things in common, they only started dating a month ago – and James’ heavily covered cheating scandal still smells like a rat.
But – hey. To each their own.
So far, they say they are just dating. But when People asked Von D if James is ‘The One”, she told the mag, “I believe he is, so yeah.”
What do you guys think? Is this a fashion ring or the real deal? Wonder what Sandra thinks of her ex’s new gal pal?
It wasn’t a jewelry blow-out like we diamond-obsessed folks hope for, but The People’s Choice Awards did reveal some classy jewels, new color trends and a peak at awards show glamour-to -come.
Winter white, strapless cocktail frocks and one-shoulder gowns were the fashion trends that emerged (kindof a snore, but classic). A-list staples (Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman) mixed with the up-and-comers (T-Swift, Ginnifer Goodwin, etc.) – and Mariah Carey provided yet another cringe-worthy appearance complete with an unwalkable gown choice, diamond overload and rambling nonsense in the guise of an acceptance speech.
Nick Cannon? Make it stop.
Jewelry style was appealing and uneventful – with Tarji P. Henson providing the night’s biggest lower jaw drop moment: a gemstone cocktail ring the size of a hockey puck. Love the color. Love the gown. Love it all.
Who wore your favorite look of the night? Sandra Bullock in a nude Vivienne Westwood number with barely there jewels? Taylor Swift in winter white and Neil Lane? Weigh in!
Despite Sandra Bullock’s A-list status, jewelry, fashion and taste were not present and accounted for at her All About Steve premiere in Los Angeles last night.
Don’t get me wrong. I love me some Sandy Bullock, in spite of her giving us the Miss Congeniality franchise and a few other clunkers. And until recently, she generally showed off her tasteful fashion sense in age-appropriate gowns with classic jewelry and a sense of fun thrown in for good measure.
So I have one question: What happened to you last night, Sandy?
This Lanvin dress is just all kinds of wrong, made even worse by (gasp!) ankle boots and a bedhead hairstyle that just isn’t red carpet-worthy. The jewelry is non-existent – just some simple diamond drop earrings – and to make matters worse, her bad fashion vibe trickled down to most of the other choices on the carpet like some primordial ooze contaminating everything in its path.
Actress, Beth Grant, graced us with a hideous Mrs. Roper-esque mumu with layered pearl strands that made a busy look even busier. And, I’m sorry, but this onyx and diamond jewelry statement on Luelle is just gaudy, doll, not glamorous.
The horror. The horror.
Bullock’s co-star, Bradley Cooper, was the only saving grace from what I can gather, showing up in a simple suit and a winning smile. Let’s hope their film is better than the garments and gems that showed up to celebrate it.
I think it’s best we just turn the page.
