Jeweller Eugen Joseff created a lot of beautiful pieces for movies.
In The Loves of Carmen (1948) Mr. Joseff’ necklaces add extra boho chic to Rita Hayworth’ gorgeous look.
Flamboyant gipsy girl and long colourful necklaces suit each other perfectly.
Coins and beads are stylish partners too.
If you want to try on yourself Carmen’ (or Rita’) jewellery, check Zukari‘ green and red Riri Necklaces and Kenneth Jay Lane‘ 3 Row Multi Coin Necklace.
When Carmen cheated on Jose with torero, she cheated on her beaded strands with statement necklace too.
I guess Carmen would like Butler & Wilson‘ black Baroque Chain Crystal And Teardrops Necklace and Kenneth Jay Lane‘ red Ruby And Clear Rhinestone Necklace as well.
P.S. In The Loves of Carmen (1948) Jose was played Glenn Ford, miss Hayworth’ on-screen lover: he was Rita’s partner in legendary Gilda (1946), The Lady in Question (1940) and Affair in Trinidad (1952).
Unfortunately, modern Hollywood completely forgot about this sweet «on-screen couples» tradition.
Gina Lolobriga is smoking hot in white gowns and big jewellery in Solomon and Sheba (1959).
If you want to channel your inner Queen and don’t count your money, put on Monique Lhulillier‘ Cowl Neack Sheath Gown and decorate yourself with Azza Fahmy‘ The Bow Earring and Drop Shaped Necklace.
You can feel yourself like a sultry movie star without spending a fortune.
Go for Genny‘ Sleevles Blue Lame Pencil Dress and Ben-Amun‘ Casablanca Coin Statement Earrings and Classic Gold Spiral Bangle.
P.S. Gina’s draped sleeping gown is something!
Modern designers have to take a lesson “how to make a naked dress” from Ralph Jester, who created costumes for miss Lollobrigida.
Want to add some old good Hollywood glamour to your look? Go for glittering chandelier earrings like red hot movie star Jayne in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).
Jayne’s character dazzels in tassel earrings on massage table, doesn’t she?
So take tips from Ms. Mansfield and wear tassels with bath towel to seduce your special one or with cocktail dress to charm everyone around you.
Here are some options to check.
Next‘ Silver Tone Sparkle Drop Earrings, Ben-Amun‘ gold plated Seville Nights Geo Stone Tassel Earrings оand Kate Spade‘ black Full Flowerish Statement Tassel Earrings are definitely cute.
Seductive vixen doesn’t take her big earring when she’s taking a bath.
Ben-Amun‘ yellow Helen of Troy Large Gold Stetement Earrings, Butler and Wilson‘ Baguette Stones Crystal Drop Earrings and Brighton silver Tamal Post Drop Earrings will look cute not only with foaming bath but with a cocktail dress.
Pearl earrings almost blended in Jayne’s platinum hair.
Personally I think earrings with dark pearls like In2design‘ Baroque Earrings – Gold/Peacock is a better choice for girls with long blond hair. And In2design‘ Baroque Earrings – Silver/White Baroque is a perfect option for brunettes and blondies with short hair.
Get bored with your pearl strand? Time to tied the knot!
Here is Googie Withers in Night and the City (1950) for an inspiration.
Googie Withers’ character wears black & white pearl necklace, but you can add more colours to your outfit with Pearls of Joy‘ (left), Mastoloni‘ Viva Tahitian Pearl Strand Necklace and Honora‘ (right) strands.
By the way, pearl necklaces are multipurpose:
Honora’ lilac strand with or without knot will look cute with Morgan De Toi‘ red evening Asymetrical Belted Bustier and every day Plain Straight-Cut Jumper with Boat Neck. Reiss‘ grey Albert Skirt and Chie Mihara‘ vintage inspired Julian shoes will be stylish partners for bustier and jumper.
Big Earrings (high jewellery or bijou, it doesn’t matter) is a perfect choice for party queens – they immediately draw attention to your face and add chic and charm to your outfit.
But don’t tryst my words blindly, have a look at beautiful Jeanne Crain in Dangerous Crossing (1953).
If you are
bloody rich check Messika‘ Diamond Whirl (left) and Calypso pieces.
Handmade Marty Magic‘ ear cuffs look quite and quirky and don’t cost a fortune.
I like Spider Ear Wrap with Garnet – Silver, Octopus Ear Cuff – Bronze, Comet Ear Wrap – Silver and Throne Dragon Ear Wrap – Bronze.
Indian women are wearing ear cuffs for centuries, so Indian jewellers definitely had enough time to perfect their skills in making big earrings.
Suhani Pittie – the favorite brand of Bollywood stars – offers a good selection of ear pieces.
Avant Garde Golden Leaves Earcuffs (left) and Rose Gold Swirl Ear Cuffs look posh and exotic.
Think your dark little dress looks boring?
Use tip from Judith Anderson’ character from a classic noir movie Laura (1944) and decorate it with not 1 but 3 brooches.
By the way, you can find a lot of beautiful vintage pieces on Susan Caplan website.
I think 2 silver plated 1960s Vintage Trifari Brushed Leaf Brooches, gold plated 1960s Vintage Monet Swirl Brooch and Mango‘s Belt Cotton Dress will look very stylish together.
They say Wild West accessories look best with denim, but I think American West‘s Grand Prairie Multi-Compartmet Crossbody Flap Bag and leather Ladies’ Wide Cuff Bracelet will look cute too with Paule Ka‘s classic ¾ sleeve Dress In Tweed Gaze and Pumps In Smooth Perforated Leather.
I guess, Skiim‘s sleevless biker jacket Lucia and safari shorts Pamela, American West‘s Native Sun All Access Crossbody Bag, Bed Stu‘s sandals Sable Grey Mason and Varelli‘s leather bracelet Coco Chic Orange will look very cute on slim leggy girl.
put B@sh‘s bright Kamis Shirt and white flair Csoul Jeans on your body, Swedish Hasbeens‘ Combo Slip In clogs on your feet, Noonday Collection‘s Cairn Earrings in your years and take exotic Cult Gaia‘s Lilleth – Brown Stain bamboo bag in your hands.
Jil Jil Stuart‘s Chrissy in classy dress with illusion of deep decolette will look even more attractive if you decorate it with Les Georgettes‘ Manchette Solair bracelet, Bague Ibiza ring and jewellery bag Sacbijou Le Mini Rouille which you can use as a clutch and Pierre Hardy‘s Dani Slingback shoes.
