Cannes Film Festival is on and we have celebrities gracing the red carpets and making headlines. It was 74-year-old Jane Fonda who showed that even at her age she knows how she can stand out among the actresses less than half her age. She chose to wear an optical illusion dress in black and white. This full-length attire highlighted her curves, if we look at the gemstones Tanzanite gem stone shows a remarkable optical illusion property known as trichroicism. But Fonda decided to pair up her updo with a pair of emerald earrings.
She was at the Rust and Bone premiere and as for the accessories she wore delicate black heels along with a clutch that matched her emerald earrings. Pairing black with emeralds is a trend that has always stood out on the red carpet. Who can forget the enormous 18-ct emerald earrings of Angelina Jolie?
Black definitely enhances the sparkle of the green emeralds. So, emeralds definitely are a good option to pair with a black or black and white dress. But we should not restrict it to just emeralds. Blue gems also go well with black attire so one can also pair up an optical illusion dress similar to the one worn by Fonda with a pair of Tanzanite earrings. If you don’t know already, Tanzanite has a unique property to absorb different light wavelengths as a result this gemstone can appear to have different colors.
Cate Blanchett chose to wear tanzanite and diamond necklace at the 61st Cannes Film festival four years ago. Earlier this one of the biggest and most glamorous film festival started in a very star-studded fashion with some stunning celebrities gracing the red carpet.
Some stars that sparkled at the opening ceremony included Eva Longoria, she looked impressive in a full length dress along with a train. Jessica Chastain also garnered a lot of praise for her white Alexander McQueen dress that had a daring neckline. Another star that can be added to the list is Tilda Swinton, chose a gold dress for the occasion.
