There's no doubt that there are some pretty impressive women in Hollywood. Between their astonishing talents and awe-inspiring fashion sense, many of them deserve an award simply for being amazing. The recent Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, which was held at Claridge's in London, honored especially remarkable women in the creative industries. Unlike the Grammys or the Oscars, this event merges the art, film, music and fashion worlds to give notable females in each industry a time to shine – and shine, they did.
So which stars stunned the most? A few stood out for their daring ensembles and jaw-dropping jewelry. Next time you're headed to a formal affair, you might want to take a cue from these ladies and incorporate a similar piece from fine jewelers:
When you're standing next to Mick Jagger, you have to bring some serious rock 'n' roll drama to your outfit. That's just what his partner, L'Wren Scott, did. While Jagger sported a casual but cool combination of black skinny pants, a red blazer and slick Nike Air Max 90s, Scott rocked a kimono-inspired gown with low red velvet pumps and matching red fingernails. Her intricate oversized chandelier earrings added some elegance to the ensemble. It's no wonder she took home the award for Tastemaker of the Year.
Gillian Anderson always manages to look chic, and her ladylike look at the Women of the Year Awards was no exception. The 45-year-old actress kept it classy in long black gown with an exposed back, elaborate ruffled train and a feather flower detail on one shoulder. Her sparkly retro-inspired circular diamond earrings, though, truly brought this look to another glamorous level.
Instead of opting for a safe black number, Kidd took a risk – and was definitely successful. The British model wowed guests in a semi-sheer long-sleeved Tom Ford gown with an intricate tribal black and white pattern. She kept her blond hair down and loose, and her makeup simple. Then she added an unexpected pop of color to the ensemble with a vibrant aqua pendant and matching drop earrings. When you're rocking a black and white outfit like Kidd's, follow her lead with some brighter baubles.
Munn is definitely not afraid of a little color – evident by her look at this awards show. In a vivid emerald gown, she definitely drew some attention. Since her dress was a classic cut with nearly no detailing, she added some statement jewelry to take things up a notch: large gold hoops and a thick ornate gold choker, which gave her look an Egyptian-esque vibe.
How do you accessorize a neon gown? With baubles that are just as vibrant, of course. Bohinc donned a daring pink and orange sherbert V-neck maxi dress with a sultry slit up the side. Then, instead of toning down the dress with simplistic accessories, she slipped on an enormous hot pink cuff bracelet and painted her lips a fiery hue. Sometimes when you're going big – it's best to just go all out.
