Silver jewels at the 29th annual DreamBall

Stars know how important it is to look and feel your best, which is why so many of them appeared at the recent 29th annual DreamBall Gala. The event, which benefited the American Cancer Society and Look Good Feel Better, was meant to help those fighting the disease to increase their self-confidence as they deal with a changing appearance during treatment.

Some noteworthy women attended this gala, including Fox News editor Colleen Williams, CBS News journalist and author Lee Woodruff, Cosmopolitan magazine editor Joanne Coles and Self magazine editor Lucy Sanziger. Celebrities in the film industry appeared as well to show their support, many of whom have undergone treatment for the disease themselves. Stars that attended all had one style aspect in common: statement jewels. What's the fashion takeaway from this event? Silver pieces from fine jewelers can take an outfit from standard to stunning. If anyone proved that you can survive cancer and come out of it more beautiful than ever, it was these inspiring women:

Nichole Galicia
One way to draw some stares is with a floor-length animal print gown. Galiciaproved this with her striking outfit, which she paired with a simple black clutch. A pair of crystal earrings gave the ensemble a touch of dazzle and accented the shimmering bronze detailing in her dress. These weren't just a simple pair of studs, either. A unique texture and shape on the curved earrings made them particularly special. Take a cue from Galicia and opt for a classic piece with a twist when you're sporting a gown in a loud print.

Goldie Hawn
Hawn proved she still has the same glamorous appeal as ever in a v-neck silk black flowy dress with sparkly beaded detailing down the front. Her jewelry took things to a whole new level, however. Her intricate sterling silver ring was highly intriguing, and covered half of her finger. She also caught some attention with a wide black bangle on that wrist, which featured oversized vertical beads. Tiny silver hoop earrings completed the whole look without overpowering it. Her combination of accessories is a foolproof strategy next time you're rocking a black outfit that needs some excitement.

Nicolle Miller
If there's someone that knows style, it's a fashion designer. Miller hit the mark in a black dress, leather moto jacket and ankle-strap platforms. The jacket gave her outfit an unexpectedly casual yet dramatic vibe, while her footwear kept things chic. The question is, how do you accessorize an ensemble like this while maintaining the perfect balance? She opted for a dainty pair of dark silver studs and an overlapping link necklace, which added to the edginess of the overall look. A matching chunky gunmetal cuff bracelet was a striking finishing touch.

Harley Viera Newton
The model and DJ is known for her playful, eccentric taste and she definitely showed it off at this event. Her mod minidress with a graphic houndstooth-like overlay in the middle had an eclectic charm, especially with a pair of strappy metallic heels. She went with a vibrant red lip and matching nails, which stood out against the black and white outfit. In terms of accessories, she also kept things relatively simple: just a delicate ring and a few thin bangles, which tied in the silver detailing on her shoes. This was just further evidence from the DreamBall gala is that silver is back. Follow Newton's lead and incorporate other pieces that will complement silver baubles, such as a clutch with silver accents, a belt with silver studs or a shrug with metallic threads. That strategy will help to make your ensemble look more cohesive and consistent.
