Delfina Delettrez presented her delightful jewelry collection at the Almine Rech Gallery in the Marais district, displaying the pieces on plates suspended in air by high-powered magnets expelling the opposite force. The idea played back to Delettrez’s gems that were meant to “float” on the wearer: An ombré pearl-set ring sat across three fingers with an invisible setting; A gemstone-and-pearl earring appeared to rest atop the lobe because of an invisible setting.
The designer also played with the idea of time by creating what looked like faceted watch faces out of cut-rock quartz pieces in purple, green and orange placed on one side of a stark metallic bracelet; other versions were featured on both a leather and chain-link watch. “The absence of time ensures that you are never too late,” said Delettrez, referring to the mechanic-less watches.
To add to the surrealistic nature of the collection, cocktails and sweets were served in makeup containers — mojitos were sipped from roll-on lip glosses while Nutella-like mousse was sucked from makeup tubes.

‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
