From Lizzo to Billie Eilish, Gen-Z icons were all about big, bad bling at the Brit Awards
We have a feeling that 2020 is not going to be a year for minimalism, as every famous person we know is jumping on the flashy, attention-seeking jewellery bandwagon. The last fashion month season was all about big, noticeable jewellery as designers like Burberry, Valentino, Chanel all went in on the maximalism trend. And this award season, celebs are following suit with their fiery statement bling. At The Brit Awards this year, unusual gemstones, oversized danglers, chunky necklaces ruled the red carpet while the petite chokers and dainty hoops seemed to be missing in action. Here’s a look at Brit Awards’ best fashion choices:
For Brit Awards, Lizzo went with rare brown diamonds to go with her custom-made gown; she wore stunning layered brown diamond hoops by designer Lorraine Schwartz, and a series of clustered, oversized champagne diamond rings by Ofira.
Lizzo also had a costume change during the Brit Awards, post which she settled for some heavy-duty sapphire and diamond necklaces, which were simple and very suited for layering.
The girl of the moment, Billie Eilish only aims to stun with each of her red carpet appearances, and is a huge fan of heavy, statement bling. She has also had an influence over shaping Gen-Z’s love for statement bling. For the Brit Awards, Billie chose solid, gold link chains by Burberry; as she chose a quirky, one-of-a-kind ensemble, her trusty gold chains only accentuate the ‘Haute’ element.
Trust Charli XCX to kick things up a notch and yet look like a million bucks. Fresh off the heels of her new music, Charli went for a look that joins the bridge between good ol’ cocktail wear and Gen-Z styling. Charli ditched the regular diamond necklace and wore a three-tiered, chunky diamond choker by Bulgari and teamed it up with an all-black ruffled Fendi number. If there’s anything this award season is teaching us, it’s that always pair your flashiest bling with monochromes.
Norwegian singer Sigrid stunned at the Brit Awards after-party in a stunning knotted, asymmetrical diamond dangler, which the singer was sporting in only one year. Helpful tip: When it comes to heavy jewellery, the runway-approved one-ear trend is very handy for earrings; not only do they look cool, but they also do not weigh your ear down. Notice, Sigrid didn’t wear a diamond necklace to go with the dangler, as it would have been a bit too much.
Mabel gave maximalism the day off and opted for a sleek, easy diamond necklace to go with her dramatic strapless gown.
