When it comes to red carpet events, the focus tends to fall on the dresses – so much so that it wouldn’t be unfair to say that such events are as much about the fashion as they are anything else.
And, given the amount of attention we give to what the celebs wear, it’s no surprise. Photographers will wait hours to get a shot of a celebrity in a designer gown and magazines can’t wait to rate and slate the choices. But no outfit – especially one for such an important occasion – would be complete without the right accessories.
It’s something Paris Hilton, the socialite and great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, knows well.
For the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala 2016, the star proved her royal status as she dazzled in Avakian High Jewellery. Choosing a classic wrap-around bangle set with diamonds from the brand’s signature “Victory” Collection, Paris matched it with an Art-Deco pair of earrings set with white enamel, pink morganite and diamonds.
It’s not an easy styling trick to pull off, but Paris’s jewels perfectly complimented the star’s heavily embellished gown without fighting it for the limelight.
The 23rd amfAR Gala took place at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, just outside of Cannes. The star-studded event raises money for AIDs research and this year saw Katy Perry perform for an A-list audience.
