Recent Project Accessory cast-off Shea Curry showed off jewels she designed—after leaving the show, mind you—at the New Year’s Eve premiere in Los Angeles last night. (She has a cameo alongside Josh Duhamel: “He’s such a sweetheart,” she told InStyle.com.) So what’s next for this glamour girl? “Right now, I’m finishing up my third collection,” she noted. “I’m adding clutches and maybe shoes.” One thing she loved about the show was getting advice from InStyle editor Ariel Foxman. “I loved Ariel,” she noted. “He could be hard on me sometimes, but I loved his advice, and I’m taking a lot of it.” And if there’s one thing she took away from the show, it’s this: “I learned that under pressure I can do anything.” Visit shamelessjewelry.com to see more of Shea’s jewelry, and catch her cameo in New Year’s Eve, out Friday.
Project Accessory airs Thursdays at 10/9c on Lifetime. See more contestants in the gallery!

Just in time for your holiday wish list, DKNY has created the Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle with jeweler Martin Katz. Supermodel Chanel Iman jetted to N.Y.C. straight from her 21st birthday bash in Jamaica to unveil the one-of-a-kind design, which incorporates 2,909 jewels from around the world, including 2,700 white diamonds, 183 yellow sapphires and a single 2.43 carat yellow canary diamond. Aside from the high sparkle factor, Iman told InStyle.com, “What’s great about the bottle is that the net proceeds of the sale go to a good cause,” the Action Against Hunger charity. It will be available for sale on the DKNY Core Club Facebook page for, yes, $1 million. Not in your price range? Pick up a non gem-studded bottle of Golden Delicious from $42 to $80 at dkny.com.
The stars of New Year’s Eve got into the festive spirit for the Los Angeles premiere last night, and we saw three of the biggest trends for the holiday season hit the red carpet—sparkle, lace, and LBD. Hilary Swank (in Elie Saab) and Lea Michele (in Valentino) both went for high shine. “It reminded me most of New Year’s!” Michele said of why she picked her gown. Meanwhile, Katherine Heigl chose a lace design by Dolce & Gabbana, and Sofia Vergara rounded out the holiday theme with a Zac Posen bustier-style LBD. The film hits theaters Friday. Tell us: Have you started planning your New Year’s outfit?
