More is More: How to Layer Necklaces Like the It Girls This Summer

Minimalists, look away. A-listers are united on the fact that—this summer—the more necklaces, the better. The obsession makes sense: During a year when making an impression was restricted to our computer screens, “waist-up” dressing offered a fresh way to smarten up an outfit. Zoom-worthy jewelry became a focal point of casual catch-ups and work calls, even if people were wearing tracksuits.
The enthusiasm for layered trophy jewels is yet to cease. Hailey Bieber has been fueling the trend. Her favorite combinations include a thick gold chain from Anita Ko, a herringbone style from Fallon, plus sweet, beaded pieces from Frasier Sterling and Ian Charms. Husband Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa are also fans of the latter brand, which founder Lisa Sahakian describes as “wild and fun.” Dua regularly complements hers with stacked gems from Arms of Eve and Éliou.

Rihanna, too, has embraced the hype with a selection of flashy gold chains. She posed for a recent Instagram post in a graphic Married to the Mob tee, Linda Farrow x The Attico sunglasses, and a medley of chains from Bulgari, Briony Raymond (inscribed with her Pisces zodiac), and a chunky vintage piece from David Yurman.
Even confirmed minimalist Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has dabbled with necklace layering by way of a diamond parure from London-based Jessica McCormack (who regularly supplies the model with gems). Huntington-Whiteley experimented with two different lengths of McCormack’s ball ’n’ chain design, adding a sparkling pendant to the longer of the two.

Gigi Hadid, on the other hand, has been loading on necklaces inscribed with their respective baby names. Kendall Jenner, Meghan Markle, and Jennifer Lopez have also shown a preference for personalized jewelry—the latter confirmed the return of “Bennifer” with a “BEN” monogram necklace.
When she’s not wearing her sentimental ode to Affleck, J Lo has worn multiple charms from celebrity-approved label, Foundrae. “Layering is quite personal. Always start with the first piece you want to wear and build from there,” founder Beth Bugdaycay told British Vogue’s jewelry and watch director Rachel Garrahan. “The trick is to make your chain unique to you, so it becomes a talisman that you can wear every day.”

Beyoncé Makes a Case for Summer Color Blocking and Micro Bags in New Look

While traditional summer outfits nod to light pastels and floral patterns, Beyoncé has always been one to stand out with her fashion choices. The singer was seen dabbling in risqué color-blocked neons as she took to Instagram to post a caption-free photo gallery.
This time, the 39-year-old artist wore a bright yellow US $495 Mara Hoffman mini dress, including asymmetrical patches of orange on the top and bright blue on one bottom side. She paired the eye candy look with colorful staples, donning dangling earrings, navy-rimmed sunglasses, and a blue micro purse, keeping the trend alive. Adding yet another color to her ensemble, she wore mint green heels with wraparound sections snaking around her ankles. Out to spend some quality time with her four-year-old daughter Rumi, she was spotted wearing the outfit underneath a sheer blue long-sleeved top at the FAO Schwarz toy store in New York City last weekend.

The star has been generous in sharing outfit posts with her 192 million Instagram followers regularly this year. In another, Beyoncé is seen sporting fluorescent floral pants with a tied-up white shirt cropped at her waist, alongside her husband and rapper Jay-Z, who is seen wearing a relaxed light-grey Puma fit. The couple had flown into the city from the Hamptons and were photographed having lunch in Brooklyn. Beyoncé carried a white Telfar bag and large fluorescent lime earrings with the look.
The Lion King actor is not the only one in a punchy fluorescent look. Back in spring and early summer this year, models Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid, Ashley Graham and actor Blake Lively sported outfits drenched in electric greens.

Before French President Emmanuel Macron met with Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey, at the Elysées Palace in Paris, he was alongside LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault to cut the proverbial ribbon on one of the most beloved department stores in all of France. The reopening of la Samaritaine—affectionately referred to as “la Samar” by Parisians—has finally occurred, 16 years after closing for renovations.

The department store is featured in a 1907 steel frame and glass Art Nouveau building by Belgian architect Frantz Jourdain that overlooks the Seine on the right bank in the 1st arrondissement. It is listed as a historical monument by the French Ministry of Culture since 1990. La Samaritaine houses the French art de vivre, which translates to shopping, eating, and culture. No less than X fashion houses are curated to offer a very French mix and match style–think Alaïa, Loewe, Alexander McQueen, Chloé, Chanel, but also regional names like Shourouk and Vanina are alongside a blend of Scandi-cool brands like Ganni, Rotate, and Rains. Meanwhile, avant-garde Parisian sneaker brand Shinzo Paris offers a unique concept featuring 100 m2 of exclusive, ethical, and responsible sneakers, each one fulfilling one of their five criteria: local, recycled, vegan, organic, or reconditioned. Look closely and shoppers will see there are many limited editions and previews available to La Samaritaine along with what is the biggest beauty space in Europe exclusively featuring Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Helena Rubinstein, Clé de Peau Beauté, SK-II, Fragonard, Orveda, and Sulwhasoo. There are also five beauty spaces including a spa and a house of perfume.

There are 12 spaces to eat everything from caviar to burgers, while books by Assouline and a pop-up Perrotin Gallery will seduce tourists and Parisians alike. Take the elevators to the top to witness the spectacular Art Nouveau peacock fresco restored to its former glory. At 3.5 meters high and 115 meters long, it is the work of the architect Jourdain’s son Francis. Alternatively, shoppers can also climb the 270 original oak steps . The railing has been restored with 16000 gold leaves. The artist Francis was also commissioned by his father to decorate the store facade with enameled Volvic lava that serve to soften the structure. Adding a touch of contemporary architecture are the glass waves forming the facade of the Rivoli street side designed by Japanese architects of the Sanaa agency.
For a lucky few, after a full day of shopping and sightseeing, La Samaritaine is adjoined by a Cheval Blanc Paris hotel, complete with a Dior Spa.
