The last few decades of fashion have been dominated by an insatiable need for bling, bling and more bling. Gone are the days of an understated cameo or a string of pearls–or are they?
I spied Scarlett Johansson promoting her new movie Don Jon at the Toronto Film Fest in an LBD accessorized with a simple strand of pearls.
Pearls are ladylike, timeless and subtle–not exactly what I’d expect to see on the red carpet, where the girl who garners the most flashbulbs wins. But I do like that ScarJo is trying to bring this Upper East Side staple back into fashion. Will it work, is the only question.
Do you like pearls instead of a flashy statement necklace or drippy diamonds? Or are they much too understated for anything other than tea with Grandma?
