Charlotte Le Bon Wears ALEX AND ANI Bracelet

Charlotte Le Bon wore ALEX AND ANI at the New York Screening of ‘The Promise’ at The Paris Theatre last night in New York City.

You can shop the exact style on www.alexandani.com.

 

#KeepThePromise

The bracelet was made in partnership with The Promise, a film set during the final years of the Ottoman Empire that is bringing light to the events that took place during the Armenian Genocide. A promise is a commitment to make something happen by any means. It is your word – bonding you to something greater than yourself. When a promise is upheld, it defines who you are within. This bracelet is a promise to the Armenian people, honoring a history of resilience and a culture that embodies the unstoppable power of the human spirit.

Alex and Ani’s Founder, Carolyn Rafaelian, is an American of Armenian descent, and this holds special meaning for her. Carolyn’s grandfather arrived in the United States in 1913, but his entire family was killed during this tragic time.

Please help us in spreading this message of commitment! 20% from each bracelet sold will benefit humanitarian efforts.

Noteworthy celebrities who have been seen wearing the bracelets include: Chris Cornell, Orlando Bloom, Nina Dobrev, and Christine Evangelista, among others. Kim Kardashian posted it on Snapchat prior to the Los Angeles screening.

Beach Style: Selecting The Perfect Cover-Up

Raise your hands if you’re excited about summer! A few more glorious weeks until vacation and we will have the chance to press the reset button. When it comes to beach style, it’s easy to get it wrong; not all sarongs can be worn on the sand and crochet sundresses can’t protect you from sunburn!

Denim Mini

While we know you love cut off shorts why not give them a well-deserved rest and show off your suntanned legs in a faded denim mini skirt. The mini skirt arrived in a blaze of glory (in the sixties) representing freedom and self-expression as thousands of young women discovered its sex appeal! These days, mini skirts come in various styles, shapes and colors. A faded denim mini is cute, comfy, and an easy way to infuse your outfit with a festival vibe. Think beach wave curls, minimal jewelry, flip flops, and a white tank top for a pretty, natural look.

Open Kimono

Kimonos has stormed the catwalk to become a much-loved fashion staple. A beautiful, silk kimono dresses up a pair of jeans, cold shoulder or lace tank top while being a fabulous alternative to a coat or jacket when the weather’s warm. Kimono’s also look gorgeous over a bikini and act as an instant cover up. They inject glamour into the most basic outfit. Thanks to their silk ties you can either wear them open (for sunbathing) or loosely tie them so you can see a hint of cleavage.

Statement Jumpsuit

If you only pack for one night, make sure it’s a silk or linen halter neck jumpsuit. Why? Even an upscale restaurant won’t say no to a trendy jumpsuit worn with strappy heels and diamond jewelry. Looking for glamorous inspiration? Grab a glossy magazine and see how the rich and famous do beach beauty. Looking to treat yourself to some right-hand bling before vacation? Head on over to www.diamondregistry.com to learn about diamonds and get a quote on your dream ring!

Jumpsuits are also a fantastic way to show off your sun-kissed skin and the perfect alternative instead of wearing a top, skirt or trousers. This www.missoni.com lilac jumpsuit is a stunning option and will look amazing with deep cork wedges.

White Button Down

Looking to hit the beach bar? A white button down will not only give you coverage but it’s still fashion-forward and classic. Make sure you pick one that comes past your thighs and not too flimsy for a chic dinner.

  • The best thing brides can do is to keep their nails moisturized at all times; When they dry out they become brittle leading to chips and cracks
  • Use an oil on your cuticles nightly before bed to keep the skin around them conditioned
  • Protein on the nails is a must to keep them flexible, if nails stay hard they will break easy; A healthy balanced diet is essential
