I’ve always considered pearls to be in the same category as Wayne Newton, Werther’s Originals and “I Love Lucy,” i.e. “Things Grandmothers Love.” But after last night’s Golden Globe Awards, I have not been able to stop thinking about the pearl earrings Rashida Jones and Emma Watson wore. Rashida’s earring is actually called an ear pin and feature three pearls in graduated sizes; Emma’s Dior earrings feature a large and small pearl connected by a bar. Inspired by their vaguely punk take on pearls, I tracked down 10 pairs of pearl earrings and cuffs that you can totally share with granny.
Designer line Band of Outsiders always pulls in a famous face to promote its collection. Where in the past they’ve used Amy Adams, Michelle Williams and the boys of “Harry Potter,” this time, they’ve tapped Rashida Jones and her sister Kadida, who is a stylist. This isn’t the first time the pair have modeled together: They were featured in a 1992 issue of Sassy magazine*. But this is probably the first time they’ve modeled in weird sweater turbans.

I do not dare to wear my glasses out of the privacy of my bedroom, let alone out in public, and never in mixed company, so I have to applaud Rashida Jones for her bravery in sporting her frames on the red carpet at the opening of Carolina Herrera’s new Rodeo Drive boutique. Leave it to sweet, beautiful Ann to pair her practical specs with her fashion event formalwear and look great while doing so! [Photo: WENN]
Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler star on “Parks & Recreation” together and they’re also friends in real life. This past weekend, the gals went out with Rashida’s sisters and mom to celebrate her birthday, and this amazing picture was the result. “Ain’t nobody fresher than my m-f’in clique.” So true.
