This Is Officially the New “Everyday” Jewelry Look of 2021

Call me a pessimist, but I truly never thought the day would come when delicate gold layering jewelry would meet its match. For years now, simple stacking rings, tamely layered tiny gold chains, and average-size hoops have been the go-to jewelry assortment of fashion girls everywhere. Even the recent(ish) introduction of heavier chains felt like a daunting departure from the minimalistic look we were all so accustomed to, so you better believe we were floored once colorful, chunky, loud, statement-making pieces emerged as the new everyday jewelry trend in 2021. 

Brands like Roxanne Assoulin, Éliou, and La Manso really led

These rocks won’t lose their shape! Scott Disick and Amelia Gray Hamlin are still going strong, hitting a high-end jewelry store for a little bit of browsing.

On Thursday, April 8, the couple were photographed shopping in downtown Miami with a bodyguard in tow. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 37, and the model, 19, have been in the Sunshine State all week.

Shaq Went Jewelry Shopping And Casually Paid For A Stranger’s Engagement Ring

Most people’s engagement stories are romantic or at least worth retelling, but not many engagement ring purchase stories are … unless they involve Shaquille O’Neal.

The NBA legend was seen in a Zales jewelry store earlier this week, looking to buy some earrings, when he came upon a man trying to pay for an engagement ring. Eager to help, O’Neal stepped in and footed the bill for the man.

Naturally, video of the sweet moment ended up online and made the rounds on social media.

In an appearance on NBA on TNT the following day, the former basketball player explained

California teen allegedly stole $40,000 in jewelry on home tour

A well-dressed teenager driving an expensive car was allowed to wander unaccompanied in a Southern California mansion for sale — and he allegedly took $40,000 of jewelry during his self-guided tour, police say.

The theft from the Thousand Oaks home was reported two days after the March 13 open house, said the police report. Last week, a 16-year-old from Camarillo was arrested.

The agent said the suspect seemed young and “out of place,” but he claimed to be 23 years old and had a financial document that was required for an appointment to tour the house, which is on the

Elsa Peretti, Star Designer for Tiffany & Company, Dies at 80

Perhaps the most famous photo of Ms. Peretti was not one from a modeling assignment but the 1975 morning-after shot by the celebrity photographer Helmut Newton, with whom she was romantically involved at the time. She stands on an apartment terrace, a cigarette dangling from her mouth, wearing a variation of the Playboy Bunny uniform — strapless, with long black gloves and a black mask.

If her night life affected her business productivity, it didn’t show. She branched out in terms of merchandise. There was a gold mesh bra, a line of ballpoint pens, silverware, ashtrays, even a sterling silver

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry admit secret wedding never actually happened

Another misstep for Meghan.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confessed that the secret wedding the Duchess of Sussex described in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey did not happen, the Daily Beast reported on Monday.

A spokesperson for the royals told the publication that “the couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.”

Since such a service does not constitute a formal wedding, the royal pair’s secret union was not legitimate, as Markle had told Oprah in the March 7 interview, the website said.

The 39-year-old former “Suits” star said in the footage,

Corinne Foxx Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

At night, I go back and forth between using a retinol and The Ordinary Lactic Acid and HA serum. I’m not going to lie, I don’t entirely know what it does—I think it exfoliates?—but I feel like it’s doing something positive to my skin. [Editor’s note: Lactic acid is an AHA and does, indeed, exfoliate.] Once again, it was a Hyram recommendation, so I just went with it. Whatever it does, it does it gently and leaves my dry skin softer and smoother.

Over The Moon Makes It Easy to Curate a Stylish Yet Practical Wedding Registry

When Alexandra Macon decided to create a new registry feature for her wedding website, Over The Moon, there was one word that kept coming to mind: timeless. Timeless, to the Vogue contributing editor, doesn’t mean expensive. Nor does it mean only home items bought by your mother, your grandmother, and maybe even your great-grandmother. “It’s brands that should be part of everyone’s life when they try to build a home together with someone,” Macon says. “We feel like that’s a mix of things—everything from niche artisanal items, to tried and true brands, to objects that can be passed

A tribute to Y2K fashion

Mainstream teen pop culture of the 2000s was ruled by blonde, skinny white girls taking center stage in hot pink like Regina George, Elle Woods, Cher Horowitz, Sharpay Evans and Hannah Montana, to name a few. It has been 15 years since the latter show premiered, and Miley Cyrus posted a letter to Hannah that made me reflect on my Disney Channel-obsessed childhood. Like many elementary-age girls of the time, I was fixated: I watched every episode, belted every song and saw Miley in concert in 2009. As a kid, teenagers are the epitome of coolness: they ditch school and
