The spectacular Elsa Jin sculptural brooch by Isabeli Fontana

The target : Model Isabeli Fontana turned heads on the Cannes red carpet in a long black dress and a stunning feather brooch by Elsa Jin.

Jewelry : This incredible brooch adorning Isabeli Fontana’s collarbone is by Elsa Jin, a Chinese jewelry artist who specializes in this type of one-of-a-kind design.
Fontana wears “Life 2022,” one of a series of four feather brooches that Jin created to showcase different gemstones in large, elaborate diamond wings. This particular piece features a 71.83 carat emerald.

Tendencies: You might think this look is just too big to be relevant as a trend, but bold surreal jewelry is having an undeniable moment on the red carpet. Just look at all the A-listers who have worn Schiaparelli to big events in recent years: it’s an illustrious list including Adele, Beyonce, Halsey, Cardi B, Doja Cat and Lady Gaga

Elsa Jin just won a Couture award for a similar piece – she was considered the best in high fashion, and I think that’s a well-deserved accolade. Look at those wings!! Unbelievable.
Miss Côte d’Azur Lara Gautier actually wore the aquamarine brooch from this series on the Cannes red carpet a few days before that, but I think Isabeli Fontana’s style is more exciting (see Gautier’s look here on Instagram).

What do we think? I love this. It’s a lot of looks, but it’s exactly the type of event where it’s appropriate. It’s a design that could easily overwhelm, but the way the brooch is perched just at Isabeli Fontana’s collarbone, with its textured diamond wings providing a shimmering contrast to the stark cutouts of the black dress, is everything. simply exciting.

Judgement: 14/10 for an exquisite jewel worn with a lot of panache.
