Jewelry Pet Peeve: Statement Necklaces And Strapless Dresses

OK, so here it is: I can't stand when people wear giant necklaces with strapless dresses. It just doesn't make sense—you go to all that trouble to wear a strapless dress to show off your pretty skin and shoulders and collarbone and then what do you do? Throw a necklace over all the bits that…

Who Wore It Better: Ugly Betty Or The Other Boleyn Girl?

When I first saw the poster for the movie The Other Boleyn Girl with Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana, and Jim Sturgess, I thought, Wow. That necklace looks really familiar. And that it came to me -- it's Ugly Betty's necklace! But upon further research, I learned that the necklace worn by Ugly Betty…
