I am so excited to show you my new David Yurman campaign! This summer, David Yurman designs come to life with unique color palettes representing the city’s rebirth. Inspired by the trees along NYC’s parks, I wear my emerald David Yurman piecesto represent my love for nature, joy, and excitement. It’s amazing what a little color can do for your mood. NYC is definitely alive. I hope you love this ad campaign as much as I do!
Pulled back my wet hair to really let my Relleryjewelry shine. This was a super fun campaign to work on with Rellery! I styled the bestsellers with a simple ribbed dress and a dark nail. For my jewelry lovers, the Rellery vegan leather jewelry case is a must have. It’s made packing my treasures for a weekend out of town a breeze.
A few portraits taken in my home this week after a long work day with Team Suarez. Find a reason to put on a pretty pair of earrings and your most elegant knit. I promise, you will feel amazing and inspired. I’ll be here, doing as much as I can during this time at home, while dreaming of how I will live life once things begin to feel a bit more normal. I hope our new normal is more conscious and thoughtful. This slower pace has brought me a peace of mind. I have never been home in one place for so long. I’m usually out traveling. I’m usually running from meeting to meeting. I feel lucky to be safe while there is still so much uncertainty in our world’s future. I’m using this time to live in the moment and do more of what brings me joy. I’ve been singing. I’ve been dancing. I really have reconnected to things that are so close to my heart and to my soul. I finally get to have long phone calls and Facetimes with dear friends and loved ones, just because. It’s amazing how now, with our isolation, I have found a real sense of togetherness with everything around me.
Take a little walk with me here through the gorgeous David Webb studio on Madison Avenue between 74th and 75th street, famous for dramatic gold necklaces and beautifully carved enamel animal bracelets. I’m so excited to reveal my shoot for the David Webb Motifcollection, made up of geometric shapes of diamonds, complete with a classic black and white enamel color palette. I love how this collection is meant to be layered and lived in. It feels fresh every time. Today’s Motif feels just as relevant and new as it did during in the 1970’s, when it was first created. Diamonds on the daily are my new thing. Either styled with a blazer and tee or with my most luxurious fur coat. Here are a few outtakes from our spread for Page Six! I wanted to give you a little insider’s look at the gorgeous, clean space with eclectic bespoke furniture and accents, right above the David Webb boutique. Believe it or not, the jewelry is handmade and designed in this same space, on the same floor, right here in NYC. The brand’s archives are also just a few steps away in the building, revealing decadent and iconic pieces worn by Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor. This jewelry house is truly one-of-a-kind.
