The USA women’s gymnastics team won the gold yesterday at the Rio Olympics, and they looked good doing it – wearing almost 5,000 Swarovski crystals each (bling, bling)! Designed by Under Armour, each gymnast’s 2016 leotard is patriotically designed in red, white, and blue, and embellished with shimmering Swarovski crystals. The estimated in-store retail price would cost around $1,200 per leotard!
If baubled-out bibs and decadent drop earrings don’t make enough of a show-stopping sparkle for you jewelry hounds, then take note of the hottest summer statement trend: eyebrow bling. From rainbow brows to Benefit’s Bling Brow Kit featuring Swarovski crystals, eyebrows are where it’s at. Since eyebrows are considered “the holders of expression”, runway makeup artist James Kaliardos says they should be celebrated as such.
In an age where hyper feminine, conventional beauty is out and anything edgy is in, it’s no wonder why this grunge-glam trend is making waves. American fashion designer Rodarte, Lady Gaga and even Kylie Jenner, just to name some of Hollywood‘s finest, have been spotted blinging out their brows.
Think this is just another silly jewelry fad? Well, according to Kaliardos, expect to see this trend take to new heights with real-gold, gemstone accessories, and embroidered shapes. Shocked or already over it? Well, sit tight jewelry jezebels, because the only RBF you’ll have to work on this summer, is your Resting Brow Face.
All over it? Or…just…over it?
