After finding so much of the fashion on the Met Gala red carpet not to my liking on Monday night, it was wonderful to see beautiful pieces of jewelry on the young English actress Ellie Bamber. She was wearing Anna Ha Haute Joaillerie, one of my favorite jewelry designers!

Ellie was in the recent movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, not exactly my kind of film, but I hope she will soon be in something I would see because she is lovely! I really liked what she wore, a silvery-taupe Giles Deacon gown with multi-colored floral embroidery. It worked so well with her red hair and flawless skin. I find it an interesting choice since the dress has an empire waistline and a full skirt. Ellie looked so ethereal, and from another era, modern but through an early 19th-century filter. I loved the juxtaposition, particularly that night when so many other women opted to wear no pants, see-through skirts, or skin tight latex dresses. I think Ellie and her stylist, Dasha Kova, made a great choice on her look!

I am crazy for the magnificent Butterfly Garden Earrings by Anna Hu that Ellie wore. They are made of rubellites, pearls, white diamonds, rubies, yellow diamonds, and pink and yellow fancy sapphires, all set in gold. They are stunning on Ellie and I love that the makeup artist used a shimmering deep pink (and gold) shadow on her eyes, which highlights the color of the rubellites.

|Modern Art Deco Ring in Rubellite by Anna Hu. I weep!|
Ellie also wore an Anna Hu Modern Art Deco Ring with a nearly 12-carat rubellite surrounded by white diamonds. You can just make it out on her finger in the photo below. Superb!

What gets me every time about Anna’s work is the use of colored gemstones in mixed cuts, colors, and sizes. It is always a thrill to see her jewelry and these pieces on Ellie were especially beautiful!
Let me know what you think of Ellie’s look and Anna’s amazing jewelry!
