Country Strong with Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester was recently released and I couldn’t resist taking in a matinee on opening day. While the movie was just okay (does anyone know what happened to the baby chick?!), the real scene stealer was the jewelry.
Lots of glitz and glam with a country western vibe. I loved. it. all.
Being the star, Gwyneth’s character, Kelly Canton really piled on the diamonds and you could tell they were all real! Since being a country star isn’t in my future, I found some fabulous lookalikes with the same wow factor.
Rhinestone Necklace $38 – Layer two and wear them short for the look in the movie.
Gold Nugget Wrap Bracelet $64 and Rhinestone Wrap Bracelet $129 – Layer both to get Gwyneth’s look.
Diamond Cross Necklace $375 – There are lots of diamond cross necklaces out there, but look for something long and slim on a dainty chain.
Leighton Meester’s character, Chiles Stanton, is a small town girl that’s just starting out in the music business, so her jewelry is much more subdued, but definitely eye-catching. Here’s a few pieces like hers that are a steal.
Long Heart Locket $4.80
Diamond Star Earrings$25 – Two of the better scenes in the movie involve these earrings, so get them quick!
Gold Horseshoe Pendant $203.99 – Leighton Meester was even spotted on the red carpet wearing a similar pendant!
Have you seen the movie? What did you think about the clothes and jewelry?
