While we're always trying to reinvent the accessorizing wheel, there's nothing like showcasing a bold bracelet or cuff on your arm. Michelle Williams donned a sleek gold buckled bracelet at a My Week With Marilyn screening, Heidi Klum opted for an exotic snake cuff adornment at her Toronto fragrance launch, and Blake Lively stacked her favorite colorful and oversized Lorraine Schwartz bracelets at a MoMA film benefit. By adorning your wrist with one wide, chunky, too-awesome-for-words bracelet, you don't have to worry about doing much else in the way of piling on accessories.

One LBD can go a long way. Ask kringkles, she knows what I mean. Her black frock has all the essential details: a fabulous cut, cool detailing, and a flattering fit. As always, a stunning piece of jewelry is important — her gold coin necklace is the icing on the style cake. I'm also digging the cool blackout backdrop. Now, that's good photography.
Here's what she has on:
Congrats to kringkles!
I used to play in my mom's jewelry all the time — I still do. If this is you too, you probably voted for a statement necklace as your favorite trend of '08. The reader favorite was over-the-top shoes, and you know me, so this was a tough call. Then, Team Fab looked at each other and we were all wearing cool, unique statement necklaces so the decision was made. Clutches came in close after statement necklaces and we're all about those, too. What can we say: We love all the trends we presented. But glittering, ornate necklaces stole our hearts and our necks this year.
Check out how adhusia made a sizzling statement with her bold necklace and LBD. She used her dark dress as a backdrop to her bright clutch and African-inspired jewelry. What a pretty way to adorn herself!
Here's what she has on:
- LBD: De Vos
- Necklace: Enes
- Shoes: Friis & Co.
- Clutch: Delvaux
- Bangle: Jozefien
Congrats to adhusia!

How many times do we say it's all about the accessories? Victory Ford of Lipstick Jungle knows this. Even when her eyes are set on landing a tennis pro's clothing line, she adorns a LWD to perfection. Layered rhinestone necklaces, a strong shoe, and a pop of color clutch are key Victory accents. I'm sure her business partner-slash-ex Joe was dazzled but not enough for him to do the deed we've been waiting for. Alas, we have to anticipate another Friday night for the answer to that one; in the meantime, feast your eyes.

Ashley Olsen shows us the power of accessories. To offset the all-black ensemble she wore to the David Letterman show, she threw on gorgeously large jeweled earrings that steal the show. Always one to represent her clothing lines, Ashley wore an LBD and black blazer from The Row. I love that the blazer is slightly longer than the dress. Another scene-stealer are her pointy velvet pumps. Chic all around.
