What Goes Around, Comes All The Way Back Around!


This trend’s got us all turned around.

Ever thought about wearing your necklace on backwards?! Well, some bold women have and flaunted their goods at red carpets, looking like queens! It’s unusual and so quirky! We absolutely love it and are craving some more. Holly Golightly may have been the original inspiration, but since then these celebs have upped the ante and put their best foot forward!

Take a lesson or two on how to rock that ‘backlace’!


  1. Anne Hathaway

Rocking this trend twice, once at the Academy Awards and the other at the premiere of Interstellar, Hathaway flaunted a backlace from James Banks Designs for the premiere and a floral Tiffany & Co. necklace for the 2013 Academy Awards!


  1. Naomi Watts

Sprucing up her look at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Naomi made heads turns when she opted to wear vintage Bulgari for her turn on the red carpet. Snaked around her neck, the platinum and diamond statement piece belonged to the Bulgari Heritage Collection, dating to the 1930s!


  1. Salma Hayek

The fiery beauty rocked serious bling at the British Fashion Awards in 2012. Wearing a black fringe dress, she turned around her Boucheron necklace and just jazzed up her look. Gotta say, we’re pretty impressed!


  1. Cara Delevingne

Driving everyone bananas, Cara put her toned back on display in a plunging Roberto Cavalli gown. A de Grisogono necklace worn backwards framed her tattoo! The necklace came with a chimpanzee pendant and featured 771 black diamonds, yellow sapphire bananas and a humongous 28-carat sapphire!


  1. Jennifer Lawrence

A backlace veteran, Jennifer put on a show with her necklaces at two consecutive Academy Awards!  At the 2013 Academy Awards, the Hunger Games star had a gorgeous Chopard necklace dripping down her back, while for the 2014 Academy Awards she decided to downplay it with a Neil Lane necklace that was worn backwards too.


  1. Jessica Chastain

Good lord, what is Piaget doing to my poor heart?! Jessica Chastain was spotted at the amFar Gala in Cannes with the Piaget Rose high jewellery necklace, turned around to make it a backlace. A stunning piece for a stunning actress!


  1. Kate Hudson

Cartier never fails to impress! The necklace looked amazing on Kate Hudson at the SAG Awards in 2010. People speculated that Hudson wore nearly $1.75 million in Cartier jewels that night! Diamonds were certainly her best friend.


  1. Cate Blanchett

Pulling off this trend with ease is the one and only Cate Blanchett! The Elizabeth actress added some much needed oomph to her outfit at the Women of the Year event by imitating the Duchess of Windsor from The King’s Speech – from the trend to the necklace. In a Van Cleef and Arpels Zip Necklace, both Blanchett and the Duchess looked gorg!


  1. Kelly Osbourne

Wearing her father, Ozzy Osbourne’s, cross pendant necklace as a good luck charm, the former Fashion Police panelist really pulled off her look! Her lilac bob complemented the cross pendant and added some rock and roll vibes to the entire outfit.


  1. Jessica Biel

Bringing sexy back in this stunning gown, Jessica Biel rocked a platinum and diamond opera length necklace from Tiffany & Co. for the Golden Globes in 2012. The star gave everyone a run for their money!


  1. Ashley Olsen

Oozing glamour, Ashley Olsen left us stunned at the 2009 Met Gala! Wearing a gown from her own label, the Row, the Two of a Kind actress gave us glam queen vibes with a backlace that had an alligator centerpiece!


  1. Princess Diana

Man, does Princess Diana look ethereal or what? Just in case you thought the backlace was a 21st century trend, the Princess pulled one over us way back in 1985 at the premiere of Back to the Future! Wearing a knotted pearl necklace over her back, she looked mesmerizing in her red velvet dress.
