On the eve of New Year’s Eve, it’s hard not to think about tiaras. Nobody wore a tiara like Princess Grace—set halfway back so that it almost becomes part of the hairstyle. Diana also rocked this look, though her hand-me-down Spencer family tiara was flashy even by HRH standards, to say nothing of the “Cambridge Knot” Queen Mary tiara from her mother-in-law. (Love the eye roll in this shot.)
The closest I’ve come to anything this fabulous was when Erica Courtney let me try on one of her custom platinum and diamond tiaras several years ago—lord knows what lucky starlet now owns that glittering piece of heaven. For the rest of us mere mortals, there are some pretty crystal offerings over at the Swarovski boutique in Century City, like this appropriately festive Confetti tiara. Tomorrow night I’ll be ringing in the New Year with the faux pearl and diamond number from Barneys pictured below, which I wore down the aisle in lieu of a veil several years ago.
Or for sheer fun, check out a marabou number ($12) from the Barney’s kids section by clicking here.
