Jamie Wolf is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her jewelry company by launching The Signature Collection, a lineup of pieces that captures her biggest inspiration—ballet. “I’m continually inspired by ballet, and that concept of timeless elegance and beauty,” says Wolf, who became a professional ballet dancer at 18 and went on to dance for the New York City Ballet for a decade. The Signature Collection features designs she created while still dancing as part of the company and are all named after different ballets, including the Amy Adams-favorite gold thorn-like earrings shown here, aptly named Sleeping Beauty. She’s also using the collection as a way to give back: 50% of proceeds will be donated to New York City Ballet’s grassroots fundraising campaign, Turn Out. See some of the pieces in the gallery, and shop the collection on jamiewolf.com.

J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff scored straight 10s on Dancing With the Stars last night—twice! The pair received the first perfect score of the season (30 points in total) for their waltz to Jackie DeShannon’s What the World Needs Now is Love. Then in the second round, in which contestants were given 20 minutes to prepare an impromptu jive, Iraq war veteran/motivational speaker Martinez and pro Smirfnoff finished with another 30 points—and a standing ovation. Watch their impressive performance in the video, above.

Vera Wang always pushes the boundaries of bridal—last season she showed off green, gray, and pink dresses—and her new collection features wedding gowns done in nude and black, two decidedly non-traditional colors. The lack of white (and any basque-waist ballgown like she designed for Kim Kardashian’s wedding day) proved this collection was made for brides who are looking for something unique. “A wedding is a joyous event, and the bride’s dress should always reflect that,” she once told InStyle.com. See Vera Wang’s entire fall 2012 bridal collection in the gallery.
