Kate Hudson in a Vintage Cartier Sautoir

Kate Hudson stuns in Cartier jewels! Photo by Bauer Griffin.

This may be a look from the 2010 SAG Awards, but I still love this photo of Kate Hudson in a gown by Emilio Pucci and vintage Cartier sautoir worn down her back. Gorgeous! I feel pretty certain that Rachel Zoe put together this look for Kate and it reminds me that some of the best parts of The Rachel Zoe Project were seeing Rachel and her team have carte blanche at Cartier, among other jewelers, to use both current and vintage gems on the red carpet. Kate was wearing $1.75 million worth of Cartier jewelry that night. To borrow a line from Rachel, I die!

A sautoir, in case you were wondering (and I just love that word, don’t you? It sounds so elegant), is, according to Merriam-Webster, “a long gold chain often set with precious stones, usually with a pendant hanging from it.”

This shot gives a better glimpse of the earrings. Bauer Griffin photo.

Let Kate’s ultra glamorous look be your friendly reminder that February’s “How I Wear My” is devoted to long necklaces. Photos are due by February 2, 2015. Send them to us at howiwearmy@yahoo.com, along with a brief description of what you are wearing. Start looking through that jewelry box and join us!

I hope KH's "just stopped out of the shower" look doesn't catch on which even the fab Cartier jewelry can't overcome

Oh GSL, you always make me laugh. Man, I think I'm a critic. You are HARSH! I love this look on Kate! (But am laughing at what you wrote nonetheless.) XO, Jill

It has Zoe written all over it. She said she never gets tired of white on the red carpet.

Jill said...

Hi Glenda! Yeah, I really think it's RZ's work too. I want to go back to the RZ Project and see if this necklace or the dress was featured in one of the shows. It might be!

Would love it if you could join Adrienne and me for HIWM: Long Necklace! XO, Jill

...I need to have a word with RZ...

Jill said...

What word? I like her just the way she is, and just the way she styles! Over the top! White dresses! Tons of (usually vintage) jewels! Whee! XO, Jill

GSL said...

I'll be having that same word with you too Jill and it won't be "Whee"

Jill said...

Oh my God I am laughing my head off right now GSL. Whee! I'm going to do yet another RZ post, just for you! Thanks for the Thursday laugh, I need it! XO, Jill

Love the low back dress with that pendant!

Jill said...

I love this look on Kate so much, I think it is perfect for her, especially with the low back and the necklace. Divine! XO, Jill
