Kazan's understated glamour helped accentuate her natural radiance. Ladies who want to turn heads at their next party could learn a thing or two from Kazan's unique style. During the summer months, consider pairing a halter dress with a radiant pearl ring or earrings. Lustrous sea brown pearl earrings crafted in 14 karat gold can offer elegance to any attire.
