Kate Bosworth Reignites Our Love For Hair Jewellery
When rocking up to the Met Gala – aka: the Oscars of fashion – it can be hard to turn heads amid the throng of stylish stars.
Not if you’re Kate Bosworth. The actress made a grand entrance at the glitzy shebang in New York City on Monday night looking as pretty as a Dolce & Gabbana princess. She stood out from the crowd at the Metropolitan Museum of Art thanks to a sparkling tiara that would make KMiddy jealous. It lends a Grecian goddess air to her whimsical gown and makes for the perfect finishing touch.
Moments before hitting the red carpet on the arm of hubby Michael Polish, KBos treated her Instagram followers to a dreamy snap of the sparkling headgear atop her sleeked-back ‘do [above]. It’s making me pine for my own crowning glory.
Because, as Kate proves, this is one elegant way to add a sprig of bling to any outfit. Polish off your party ensemble with a bejewelled hair slide, add a glittering headband for some serious chutzpah or go the Saint Laurent route by adding a tiara to your camouflage dress for a grunge princess vibe.
Of course, this is always a welcome choice for brides-to-be who want to make a subtle statement. Just ask headband connoisseur Blair Waldorf who, in the world of Gossip Girl, donned the ultimate bling band for her wedding to Chuck Bass.
I can only dream of owning Kate (or Blair)’s gem-encrusted beauty and I imagine you don’t have a year’s salary to spend on head furniture either, BUT nailing the trend needn’t cost a bomb. There are plenty of purse-friendly alternatives for the rest of us.
