Margot Robbie Was Swathed In Diamonds and Pearls at 2 Barbie Premieres

She was layered in Lorraine Schwartz for one and Assael for another.




MY UNCLE WAS a senior vice president for Mattel when I was at the age to have multiple Barbies and accessories. I had many jewels, but never did I have a jewel that imitated the megawatt bling of the four diamond Lorraine Schwartz necklaces that Margot Robbie wore to the world premiere in Los Angeles of the Greta Gerwig Barbie film. It was Robbie’s first pink-carpet premiere, and the look was based on “Solo in the Spotlight” Barbie, which came long after my Barbie doll days. Throughout the photo calls and at the next premiere, celebrity stylist Andrew Mukamal referenced looks from the iconic dolls and brought them to life on Robbie.

Still, the A-list actress’s own beauty and effervescence showed through. On this occasion, she wore a Schiaparelli haute couture black sequin strapless gown, which provided the backdrop for necklaces that totaled 350 carats of diamonds around Robbie’s neck. That, along with large diamond studs and a 10-carat diamond ring, was enough to create a dazzling effect.

Leave it to Schwartz to not only beautifully graduate the diamond necklaces but also graduate the size of the diamonds as they sparkled down Robbie’s neck. They went from smaller to larger round styles to the final necklace that alternated various cuts of fancy diamonds, including heart, pear, ovals, marquise and more. The jewels never outshined Robbie but, rather, complemented her look, adding just the right touch for her first premiere. The jewels also summed up the trend for statement necklaces!

And, at the most recent premiere of the film in London, Robbie wore a choker of three strands of ultra large pearls and pearl studs from Assael based on the 1960s Enchanted Evening Barbie, which I did actually own (now I am dating myself). Robbie once again looked stunning, and Mukamal nailed another iconic look and another trend — pearls — that is in full swing.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
