Kate Hudson, Queen of Tahitian Pearls
Kate Hudson has several reasons to be in the news this week. Earlier this week, Kate Hudson gave birth to a baby boy with fiancé Matt Bellamy. Besides the happy birth of her son, Hudson is frequently in the news because of her sense of style women worldwide try to model. However, she isn`t the only star actresses of the summer movie Something Borrowed that has excellent taste in fashion. Recently, we had an article on Ginnifer Goodwin`s beginning style and her elegant choice of pearl studs. Unsurprisingly, a woman like Kate Hudson who grew up with a literal superstar of a mom has just as stylish fashion sense.
As picture shown, Kate Hudson is wearing a long pearl necklace. But unlike the other stars sporting this style, Kate Hudson takes it up a notch by wearing Tahitian pearls necklaces. Tahitian pearl necklaces are more expensive and more extravagant than regular pearls. Firstly, black pearls are very, very uncommon and most pearls are dyed black during the cultivation process. Tahitian pearls are the only pearls that naturally occur as black with colors ranging from silver to gray. Not only are these types of pearls rare, but they take an especially long time to cultivate. It takes about 2-3 years for an oyster to produce a single black Tahitian pearl. The survival of the oyster is uncommon as well. Due to these factors, Tahitian pearls typically range from upper hundreds to sometimes several thousand dollars. Find more tahitian pearl jewelry here.
Celebrities who are also pearl lovers
Both Michelle and Cindy remind us of other famous pearl wearers:
Audrey Hepburn: When the actress came out in Breakfast At Tiffany with that little black dress and dramatic set of pearls it was an instant moment in fashion history.
Jackie Kennedy: The First Lady made pearls an essential part of her outfits and took them from casual wear to chic and is often remembered to be wearing streamlined dress with pearls.
Princess Diana: Look back at any photo of the princess, she would be more often than not seen wearing pearls. Her use of simplistic jewellery like pearls with daring dresses is what helped turn her into a fashion icon.
Sarah Jessica Parker: In both the series and movie of Sex And The City, SJP often wears long strands of pearls, showing us true, classic and innovative style.
Coco Channel:As self-made millionaire and founder of the fashion empire, born in poverty, believed jewelry should be worn to decorate rather than to expose wealth. She used imitation pearls extensively in her design. Since pearls were regarded as the privilege of the wealthy when she was growing up, She made her artificial much bigger and also in other colors than natural color of pearls, with rows of pearls arranged in pearl chokers, pearl brooches and pearl pendants.
Pearls for teenager? You bet!
Justin Beiber`s new girlfriend, the girl approximately every single teenager girl in America is envying right now, Selena Gomez.
Right now Selena happens to be known as the girl with the most-wanted boyfriend on the face of the planet, but before she garnered that label, she was also known as the cute kind from Barney, the next Miley Cyrus, and the face of Disney. How did she get it all? Fame, a sweet boyfriend, good sense? Unlike other Disney products gone wrong (cough, cough Miley, Demi, Vanessa), we aren`t expecting on seeing her on the cover of People for doing something illicit.
Selena has become the ideal model for all of our daughters today. She dresses sensibly and stylishly and not skimpily (cough, cough again, Miley, and especially you, Vanessa). She knows how to simultaneously balance enjoying being a kid and the perks of fame. Above, Selena takes a simple pearl necklace to make her LBD pop. What would have originally been perceived as a relatively drab and low-key dress, Selena made it stand out with some styling of her hair, and a pearl necklace. Selena knows how to look mature and have adults take her seriously while still living her salad days.
Sandra Bullock: America`s Sweetheart
After a heartbreaking divorce last year during the peak of her success, Sandra Bullock was resilient and recovered with grace and dignity. Now a year later, she is still riding on her success and even happier than ever as a new mother to her adopted son.
Wherever she goes, whatever situation she is in, Sandy only inspires class and elegance as well as down to earth nature we hardly see in celebrities. Even with being a new mom and having to rebound from the nasty divorce from her former husband, Sandy always looks stunning whether she`s on the red carpet or taking her son out. In this photo above, Sandra wows as usual equipped with a simple yet flirty LBD and chic updo. What stands out most in this photo though isn`t even her smile, but how she plays with her pearl jewelry in the new raging chunky style. Sandra sure knows how to impress!
Accessory is one of the best ways to make your wardrobe more exciting. If you`re not buying new clothes, investing in new jewelry can create a “Wow!” moment into your old everyday outfit.
Academy Award winning actress Natalie Portman has undeniably been quite the buzz lately.
Popular for her performance in Black Swan, the media just can not seem to get enough of her! No matter how many award ceremonies she attends she always appears flawless.
