There was no “gifting”going on this weekend at the Van Cleef & Arpels new international exhibit “A Quest for Beauty: The Art of Van Cleef & Arpels” at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, but the beautiful people enjoyed the exhibit all the same.
Key pieces from the exhibit include never before seen items and iconic pieces worn by Princess Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Hutton and Empress Farah Pahlavi, along with items worn to key awards season events by celebrities including Eva Mendes and Jennifer Garner.
Guests including Camilla Belle, Krysten Ritter, Eva Amurri Martino, AnnaLynne McCord, enjoyed a private curated tour of the new exhibit which features over 200 items from the private collection of Van Cleef & Arpels.
We love that AnnaLynne McCord paired priceless Van Cleef & Arpels jewels with a $20 Jill Stuart dress that she found at a vintage store. She commented that she wanted to make her look more about her “darling jewelry.”
“Darling?” More like fabbbuuuloooous.
