Actress, singer, dancer and business sensation Jennifer Lopez is heating things up in September 2010’s Glamour cover story. Wearing an exotic cheetah print body suit by Dolce & Gabanna, the diva extraordinaire is featured in a variety of enticing diamond earrings, rings, pendants and necklaces by some of the jewelry industry’s most innovative designers. The earthy fashion and accessory tones seen in the shots reflect Fall 2010’s trend forecast. We especially love that Le Vian Chocolate Diamond® Ball & Chain Bracelet she’s wearing as she holds an over-sized Queen of Diamonds card as well those Christian Louboutin shoes in the far right shot below!
J. Lo is living as big as fabulous as ever- she’s just not letting the paparazzi watch. In this issue, she opens up to the magazine about motherhood, marriage and the bold fashion she shows off here.

Jenny from the block is hard at work with a new album titled “Love?” due to release later this year. A number of singles for the album have already been released, including: “Louboutins” and a video for her song “Fresh out the oven (featuring Pitbull)” directed by Jonas Akerlund. Both tracks have been successful peaking at number one on Billboard’s “Hot Dance Club Songs Chart.”

Oprah Winfrey is wearing dark chocolate diamond earrings designed by Le Vian on September 2010’s cover of “O The Oprah Magazine” currently available on news stands. Oprah looks gorgeous and those earrings compliment her outfit’s warm autumn tones wonderfully. The issue is aptly titled: “The Makeover Issue: Transform Your Look, Luck, Life – 178 Inspiring Ways to Change Things Up”. Statement pieces are still very much in style and what better way to welcome the approaching fall season than with a dangling and sparkling new accessory?
On September 13th, 2010 the media mogul will be launching The Farewell Season to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on ABC marking an end of a 24 year old program that’s touched the hearts and lives of countless people around the world.

Oscars 2010 had a number of surprises this year. As always, it is a great source to spot fashion and jewelry trends for the upcoming season. While some ensembles were way off target, there were a few starlets that were spot on. Ever-elegant Meryl Streep was our favorite pick of the evening. Draped in a hot white Chris March gown, those pave-set diamond and white gold earrings superbly complimented her overall look.
New York City’s Firenze Jewels weighs in on four very different but influential women in politics this year, the type of jewelry they have worn and how it compliments their overall style. “You can tell a lot about someone’s personality by looking at the style of jewelry they choose to wear,” says Gabrielle Guzman, Director of the e-Commerce division at Firenze Jewels. While you may or may not agree with their (or their husband’s) philosophical views, one thing is for certain; we’ll be seeing a lot more of one of them in the future.
Current second term Senator of New York, former First Lady and former 2008 Democratic candidate for President of the United States, Hillary Clinton has worn many different hats and usually likes to wear a pearl or modest diamond necklace to go along with each. Some people tuned into the election coverage may remember that when asked a light hearted question during last year’s UNLV presidential debate about whether she prefers diamonds or pearls, she
jokingly replied “I want both”. Hillary is also known to be a big fan of turquoise jewelry, and when she’s not in the spot light she’ll usually opt for a simple gold necklace. Firenze Jewels believes that the jewelry Mrs. Clinton chooses to wear is very much like her famous trademark pantsuits, it shows that she’s confident, enjoys attention and likes to be in control.
Philanthropist, chairwoman of Hensley & Co, and potential First Lady, Cindy McCain has always been a fan of chunky beaded or pearl necklaces and/or earrings. In fact, her philosophy seems to be “the chunkier the better”. Cindy’s traditional demeanor has often been compared to that of Nancy Reagan’s, but her overall fashion style as the wife of a Republican presidential candidate is anything but. On her husband’s campaign trail she’s been seen wearing sharp red leather and copper toned jackets with bold jewelry to match. The clothing and jewelry styles that she wears
are traditional but the fabrics and colors that she chooses are not. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. McCain’s choice in jewelry and sense of fashion shows that although she chooses to play the role of a traditional Republican First Lady if her husband were elected, she certainly does not think like one.
American lawyer, Princeton University & Harvard Law School graduate and potential First Lady, Michelle Obama has been compared to Jacqueline Kennedy for her taste in beaded necklaces and she’s even drawn comparisons to Barbra Bush for her fondness over bold “pearl-like” white necklaces. Michelle has made several appearances on various best dressed lists for her sense of style. Her use of jewelry is very distinct. When wearing a contemporary outfit, she’ll usually compliment it with a more conservative looking jewelry piece and when dressed a little more conservative, she will wear something along
the lines of a long beaded necklace, a sparkling brooch or other form of jewelry that adds flair and drama to her overall style. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. Obama’s selection of jewelry and the way she employs it with her outfit, shows that she is very down to earth and comfortable with who she is.
Current Governor of Alaska, former mayor of Wasilla, and current potential Vice President of the United States on the Republican ticket, Sarah Palin has a flair for small gold nugget earrings and stretch bracelets. Many times, she’s been seen wearing a pair of gold earrings that look to be the shape of Alaska. Her trademark rimless glasses and flashy power suits have become her bold signature
look, so Sarah usually keeps her jewelry to a minimum. If she does wear a necklace or chain of some sort, it’s usually a simple chain made of gold or modest sized beads. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. Palin’s choice of jewelry and overall style shows that she takes pride in roots as well as her work and achievements.
