A week ago, while browsing through the Emmy Awards 2010 red carpet photos, I knew of three women who already had a spot in our Best Dressed List in the bag. While January Jones and Clare Danes captivated me with their dresses, it is Padma Lakshmi’s oh-so-unique statement necklace that drew my attention. Very cleverly, Lakshmi let the necklace outshine her simple, but elegant navy strapless dress.
The necklace, I immediately discovered, is dubbed as Masai necklace and it is only one part of her amazing and vast, new jewelry line. What I like most about the necklace is that very nonchalantly, it infuses the look with exoticism whilst keeping the ethnic trend in the modern realm. As a matter of fact, that’s a good way to describe Padma Lakshmi’s entire collection – tasteful, modern, exotic. As long as, like her, you keep your outfit minimal and let the jewelry do the talking, you are sure to make an impression.
