    Many adjectives come to mind when we think of Alexis Bittar (uhhh smokeshow?), but, given his history with over-the-top advertising, none of them are understated. Instead, the jewelry designer's done it again with a totally decked out, totally luxe, and totally insane lookbook displaying his fall '12 baubles and bling on a lifeless mannequin that's actually crying glitzy diamonds. And even though her sparkly tears are more emotive than her expression, we're getting a little emo, if not grabby, over the emerald-colored collar necklaces, elephant-sized gemstone earrings, and rhinestone-encrusted panther cuffs that make up the line.

We smell a "who wore it best?"...we promise if we lose we won't cry.
