The chunky statement gems will surely speak to sartorial brides looking to step outside the box.
The sisters cited "Old Hollywood glam" as their inspiration. "All of our jewelry is handmade with Swarovsky crystals here in New York", noted Jodie. "We used more clear crystals for our bridal collection to create pieces that are truly timeless. The pieces can be bohemian, rocker, or classic-it's how they're paired and layered."

Best Shopping Advice / Michael Kors

We love Glamour magazine for posting this note, this is the best shopping advice you'll ever hear. 
Thanks, Michael Kors!

Leave it to Michael Kors--Project Runway's official king of bon mots--to sum up both dating and shopping in one brilliant nugget of advice

Kate Betts recently chatted with the designer for CBS Watch magazine, where she said, "Fashion is changing so quickly now. What advice would you give to a young woman who is trying to keep up with trends?"
His response was utterly priceless: "She should take the same approach she takes to guys: There’s great fling material, and then there’s great husband material! Apply that to your wardrobe and it means invest in the key pieces you’ll want to spend time with season after season, the pieces that will help define your style. Don’t invest major money in the trendy pieces that will feel old by this time next year. Like dating that guy just for fun--it’s not to say you shouldn’t do it, just don’t sink a lot into it!"
So, neon fun fur vest = 22-year-old actor-slash-bartender (translation: don't spend more than $50 or more than a few sleepovers). Well-tailored classic navy wool peacoat = handsome doctor with the really sweet smile (translation: go ahead, spend half your paycheck...and introduce him to your parents, already!). Is this genius advice for shopping and dating, or what?

Penelope Cruz / Campari Calendar

Italian alcohol beverage brand Campari has Penelope Cruz for its 14th-edition collectors calendar titled "Kiss Superstition Goodbye", involving 13 taboo acts that plat on people's fears of ill-fate: breaking mirrors, walking under ladders, opening umbrellas indoors. The message of Campari's 2013 Calendar is that self-confidence overcomes superstition. 
Paris-based photographer Kristian Schuller photographed Penelope in red designs, which represent the red of the dark bitter Italian aperitif. The actress wears dresses from leading fashion houses such as Emilio Pucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, as well as jewelry by Chopard.
