Royal Jewelry Worn by Kate Middleton

After some time, the royal couple makes headlines again. But this time, it’s not really due to any big, noble stuff. This time, they’re in hot water with some bad press. It’s not every day that people get to snap pictures of naked royalty at a private property. Despite the fact that paparazzi was definitely making all the steps to shatter the dignity of the royal couple, it may be time to sack the security for leaving the couple in the hands of preying eyes everywhere.

But let’s not talk about the unclothed Kate Middleton, shall we? After all, our favorite royalty princess does have some good shots of her fully clothed as well. As a royal celebrity, Kate Middleton harbors some of the best fashion styles ever. And on her highly celebrated wedding to Prince William, she donned three pieces of jewelry that will forever be known as her royal accessories. Now, if you have a jewelry store and you want to attract fans of the royal couple, you may want to get similar pieces and be ready with a good jewelry display.

As the envy of every woman on the day of her wedding, Kate Middleton had to look flawless. Donning a beautiful lace gown that would only look fitting for a princess, the former-model also wore gorgeous earrings that became a fashion statement for her fans. This pair of dangling earrings was made by the Robinson Pelham Jewellers, given to her by her parents. The earrings are made into the shape of an oak leaf. It has a pear-shape diamond drop with an acorn set in the center of the leaf. The design of these earrings was inspired by the family’s coat of arms that included both acorn and oak leaves.

But before the wedding, people celebrated the day the couple announced their engagement. Maybe it was because it was about time that the two got engaged. Or maybe it was because they made the announcement with a big bang. And that bang included the gorgeous sapphire engagement ring that Princess Diana used to own. The oval Ceylon sapphire stone sits in the middle of a cluster of 14 diamonds, all set in 18 carat white gold. Sapphires were the late Princess Diana’s favorite stones and she had personally chosen the ring to be hers for her engagement to Prince Charles. When Prince William proposed, he made sure his lovely fiancĂ© inherited the highly coveted ring. This ring has been re-modeled into more affordable celebrity inspired fashion jewelry for the fans of the Duchess.

A person can never be royalty without her own crown. But a wedding cannot be a wedding without something borrowed. And that’s just what Kate Middleton did during her wedding. She had something borrowed and apparently, something really, really old. Since the Queen granted her permission to choose from any of her tiaras, the lovely Duchess donned the 1936 Halo, which was a gift to the Queen Mother from King George VI. The tiara was then given to Queen Elizabeth for her 18th birthday. Now this, would be a perfect gift for a 5 year old, don’t you think?

The real question though – do you have the right display stands to showcase such royalty accessories?

Breaking News: New Jersey Teen Still Missing After Tweeting For Help

Could this be one of them?Is She Out Looking For A Halloween Costume? Perhaps this is one of the Trick or Treat type of game since disappearing acts are oh so common during the Halloween season.

Kara Alogi’s “panic tweet” before she went missing has gone viral on Sunday. The 16 year old tweeted: “There is someone in my house call 911”. Many have responded by "retweeting" the post and calling the local police. When her family came home, Kara was nowhere to be found and her phone was left at home. A kidnapping angle is being investigated by the police. According to an NBCNews article online, authorities have reported the Twitter post to be a hoax.

I do hope she’s just getting ready for a huge Halloween party in advance. Throwing in some real life drama is certainly an original, if that’s the case. There’s nothing much to worry about footwear. You can always dress up your favorite pair of Bamboo Shoes to get them into character.

I am sincerely praying for her safety. But for the meantime, here are some tips for finding that perfect Halloween costume for this year:

1. Pick a character
Knowing who you want to be for Halloween can cut your worries down to half. Once you’ve figured out the ideal character for you, all other decisions that follow will come easy. Also, brainstorming can stir up your creative juice really so you’ll definitely be able to create something unique for this season.

2. Buy, rent or DIY
Budget is another important consideration for Halloween. Since this season only comes around once a year, you may decide to splurge and go all out with your costume and props. You can even go as far as renting a decorated ride or turning your truck into a pumpkin for your family and friends to use. Deciding whether to break the piggy bank will always be up to you. Just make sure that you’ll be able to support your decision whether you decide to splurge or save for costumes this year.

3. Get the right fit
Having to look ugly or scary is not enough reason for you to wear ill fitting clothes. Whether you have to wear oversized or shrunk clothes, just make sure that they’re comfortable. Wear decent undergarments as well just in case you unexpectedly suffer from a wardrobe malfunction. Carrying extra clothes won’t harm you as well.

4. Let your imagination run wild
The sky will always be the limit when you go about choosing your character. But in finding the right one, always consider the theme (if there’s any) and your personal preferences to avoid regretting anything in the end. If you end up having a bad Halloween party this year – don’t beat yourself up. You can always make things better the next time around

5. Be an early bird
This is very important especially when you are going to buy. Since everyone is so hyped with this once-a-year event, chances are every good piece will be out on the shelves by mid-October. Renting and doing costumes yourself can save you a great deal of money. You may want to refashion Halloween costumes from last year or get vintage clothing pieces from a thrift shop to avoid long lines in department stores or costume shops. Planning ahead will always work to your advantage.

May Kara be brought home safely in time to join her family for some trick or treat.

5 Best Looks of Emma Watson

Gone are the days when the little girl who played Hermoine Granger was just adorable, but awkward. Today, she’s the lovely and smart woman who also played Sam in the Fall movie of Stephen Chbowsky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. As a true icon for struggling actresses everywhere, Emma Watson is one of the most inspiring people. She’s like Natalie Portman all over again! But besides that, she’s also a fashion icon.

Check out some of the 22 year old actress’ best looks.

In this outfit that she wore during the promotion of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Watson shines in an Erdem blue and white dress with eccentric neck details on sheer fabric. Appropriate for her age, Emma Watson is definitely as sophisticated as she is fashion forward. Because she already had neck details, she opted not to wear a necklace, but instead pulled her hair back and accentuated with enamel-looking fashion jewelry on her ears. Her arm bangles were also pretty good accessories for sophisticated outfit. Hot or Not? Definitely hot.

Emma Watson London

In this outfit that Watson wore at the premiere of Perks of Being a Wallflower in London, she struts her stuff in all Dior – both shoes and outfit. Although Emma is a little too short to pull off the model look as opposed to how the model handled this look on the runway, she was still able to bring elegancy and sophistication in this outfit alone. She toned down her accessories in this outfit too, wearing only a silver barely-noticeable necklace and round earrings. Very elegant, Ms. Watson, very elegant.

Elegant as always, Emma Watson ups her look in another Perks of Being a Wallflower premiere event. This time, donning an Armani dress that famously became the object of wardrobe malfunctions, Watson appears to be unfazed. Her simple, romantic dress perfectly highlights her fair and porcelain skin. Her red lips were her only accessories that day and it worked perfectly in her case.

Emma Watson Brood Dress

Despite her recent wardrobe malfunction in the Armani dress, Watson looked ready to show a bit of skin in this Brood dress. Despite the dress’ slightly toilet-papery look, Watson still managed to look just as beautiful as in her other outfits. Styled to hang right up to her neck, Watson chose to keep her hair down and her chestnut hair blended well with the white color of her dress. The upside about her outfit? That really cool ring she dons on her finger!

Color-block is in! At least, if you look like Emma Watson. When it comes to wearing color block dresses, it is important to check first if the dress you’re wearing is actually fitting for your skin tone and your overall outfit. Sometimes color-block dresses are fun to look at, but when you wear them, they can be a disaster. In this Peter Pilotto dress, Emma Watson looks young and hip. Red and yellow accentuate her fair skin and she adds a little funk to her outfit by styling her hair up and wearing Tom Ford glittery shoes. Very appropriate for her age?
