The Buzz On Michelle Williams-------
Michelle Williams hit Cannes to promote her new flick Blue Valentine, and we’re just about ready to say she can do no wrong. She’s got a soft spot for young designers—she wore Suno to her Valentine photo call—but for the official premiere, she pulled out the big guns: Chanel Haute Couture. (She chose the petal pink column Heidi Mount wore for the show—an insouciant take on Roman sixties couture, if you ask us.) But what we really love is that she toned down the look with a witty choice of jewelry: bumblebee earrings from Asprey’s new children’s collection. Kids are better and better dressed these days—note the news from Pitti, for example, where Gucci and Fendi are due to launch childrenswear next month—and Asprey has wasted no time courting the tot demographic, delivering its collection of pint-sized fine jewelry to stores earlier this year. We presume that Michelle will be handing the ladybug posts down to her adorable daughter, Matilda, as soon as her ears are pierced. In the meantime, a magnifying glass is required to spot them in the Cannes paparazzi shots, but those are the gold, enamel, and pavé diamond earrings pictured above. Totally charming.
Ladybird earrings in white gold, $1,500, available later this year; for more information, call (212) 688-1811 or visit www.asprey.com.
