When actress Ashley Madekwe isn’t busy working the cameras (her most recent role was Ashley Davenport on Revenge), the British darling is turning on the charm as a style icon-slash-blogger, known for her savvy sartorial picks and impeccable taste. So, it comes as no surprise that jewelry destination BaubleBar tapped her to serve as “Guest Bartender” for the month (her birthday month!) and curate a collection of 22 statement pieces that resonate with Madekwe’s personal MO. “Together, we’ve come up with a collection of pieces that really encompass my style,” she told InStyle.com exclusively. “All of my go-to favorites are included—midi rings, ear cuffs, studs and lots of sparkle!” Priced between $22 and $46, the Ashley Madekwe x BaubleBar collection launches today on baublebar.com. Read on to learn about Madekwe’s selection process, her favorite pieces and her street style secrets.
It’s not just long-lost relatives anymore—everyone wants to be a part of your Big Day. Designers especially want in on the action, expanding their collections to encompass more offerings for brides, bridesmaids, in-laws—you name it. For the anti-traditional, shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell added new designs to his existing bridal collaboration with Ashbury Skies with “Cold Feet by Jeffrey Campbell,” which does away with conventional shoe styles and instead serves up edgy, no-fuss footwear like “I do” plated white high-top sneaks and silver cut-out wedges. Likewise, Monique Lhuillier, who launched engagement rings and wedding bands a year ago, widened the scope of her fine jewelry collection (sold exclusively at Blue Nile) to include earrings, bracelets and necklaces. “I can touch more women with this collection—it’s not just for brides, but for bridesmaids, too,” she said at her fall 2014 bridal presentation during Bridal Fashion Week. “My goal is to reach more women and sprinkle that specialness.” In the same vein, jewelry retailer BaubleBar partnered up with wedding site Style Me Pretty and rolled out pretty add-ons for the entire bridal party.
