The Brit Awards are a great annual celebration of the best UK music, however in recent years it’s been great to see Pearl Jewellery at the Brits, being showcased by the stars.
At the Brits in 2020 Harry Styles caused a stir arriving in a stylish brown suit accessorised with a white pearl necklace, it’s an image that was splashed across news sites and fashion blogs across the UK in the days and weeks that followed
Harry Styles actually changed outfits three times at the 2020 Brits, switching into a lace jumpsuit, again accessorised with a pearl necklace, to perform Falling, then changing again after his performance to end the evening in a yellow tuxedo. Is this the night Pearls for Men arrived, no actually we need to look to the US Music scene and Hollywood, it was perhaps Pharrell Williams who was the original trendsetter wearing layered pearl necklaces on a catwalk for Chanel back in 2016.
Since then we’ve seen A$AP Rocky wearing a pearl necklace on many occasions, including at the Grammys. Singer Shawn Mendes has worn pearls are numerous occasions and many other stars of the US music scene have joined the trend.
In 2021 we might have expected it would be male stars who would once again steal the limelight with pearl jewellery, but that is not how it panned out and this year the look that is featuring heavily in the media and in fashion blogs is Dua Lipa’s.
The star was nominated in three categories, and received the Best Album award for Nostalgia, also the Best Female Solo Artist award, yet it is perhaps for her iconic fashions that night the she will be most remembered. She chose the veteran punk fashion designer Vivienne Westwood for her outfits, starting the night in a stunning yellow silk mini dress with train, accessorised with a fabulous triple strand pearl choker and double strand pearl bracelet. The stylish punky look was a show stealer, and also once again put pearl jewellery centre stage at the Brits.
Historically we may have looked to the catwalks of the major fashion shows to get an insight into the latest jewellery trends, and to get an idea of what is going to be hot in the coming season, but times are changing and a much more relevant indicator of the jewellery styles and fashions that people are actually going to buy and wear can be seen at the Brits and the Grammys.
