Never one to shy away from a bijou or two, Daphne Guinness went tribal at the NARS 15×15 launch fete in New York, while Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kelly Wearstler opted for less glitzy, but no less subtle, takes on the look with fringed fabric bibs. Lake Bell gave her LBT a punk flare with a silver spiked piece at a New York screening of her latest flick, “It’s Complicated.” Incessantly papped songstress Rihanna gave photographers plenty to shoot when she donned a chunky version of Chanel’s iconic logo-laden strands to the fashion house’s spring presentation.
