We’re Crying Diamond Tears For Alexis Bittar’s Newest Collection

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. Plus, the glammed-up '80s styling has us already planning outfits (we're into the all-black thing to make the jewels really pop). We're just hoping next time we're at a party with Lady Gaga we're not totally matching — these out-of-this-world wares totally up her alley, too. We smell a "who wore it best?"...we promise if we lose we won't cry.
Click through for seriously swoon-worthy bling to pump up your fall wardrobe.
