Dua Lipa Went Back to the ‘90s for Her Look at London Premiere of Barbie

She achieved a nostalgic, over-the-top flair.




DUA LIPA CONTINUES to go from subtle to all-out statement-making, and at the Barbie premiere in London in July it was the latter. She was in head-to-toe Versace from the La Vacanza collection, which she co-designed with creative director Donatella Versace and debuted at the Cannes Film Festival.

Although the total look was an explosion of pop color and sparkle, let’s concentrate on the jewelry, which has a nostalgic, over-the-top ’90s flair.

Butterflies (a trend in fine jewelry at present) were freely flitting about as rings on her fingers and ears and on the Versace Medusa Medallion necklace-choker that had multiple motifs. She also wore a Crystal Butterfly Cuff to complete the look.

Lipa’s style drew from runway trends that suggested “go big or go home.”

But the one thing I would really like to know is, Can I have these Versace pieces as jewelry for the new Barbie — or perhaps for  myself?



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
