Have you ever wanted to deck yourself out in thousands of dollars worth of fine antique jewelry just because you can? South Korean actress Kim Tae Hee did just that for a High Cut magazine photoshoot featuring stunning Cartier jewelry.
She wore pieces from Cartier's Le Cirque Animalier collection as well as from the the Evasions Joallieres collection. The high end fashion and makeup looks she donned worked well with the classic, sophisticated jewelry and didn't overpower them. Despite the reportedly blazing heat, the actress was able to deliver a shoot that was exactly what her photographers wanted.
Next time you're planning to wear your estate cocktail rings or vintage jewelry, dress up in fashion that's chic yet monochromatic, so you can have all eyes on the sparkle. Dark colors would work best with diamonds, platinum and white gold jewelry, while a rich color like red would look great with gold.
Consider pairing your jewels with sleek minidresses and killer heels for a look that's fiercely minimalist. You'll be surprised how most of your complements will be about the jewelry, not the fashion.
