Los Angeles, California – Last night The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine had the privilege to attend the unveiling of the new “City Lights” fall/winter 2012 collection by TACORI. The iconic jewelers also previewed the never before seen teaser trailer for their new short film “Par Chance”, the film was written and directed by Steve Antin (Burlesque).
The evening was picturesque, beautiful and brought you back to a time of elegance. Fanciful and fun the event was held at “The Lot” which was transformed into “Old Hollywood”. Scenes of classic films played against stark white walls. Beautiful black and white striped furniture splayed across the concrete floor and ornate chandeliers hung from the ceiling. The seating provided an allure that was inviting and enchanting.
Guests dressed to impress, playing upon the night’s theme, “Old Hollywood”. The Red Carpet lit up with appearances by, Dania Ramirez (Premium Rush), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Chelsea Rickett’s (Chasing Shakespeare), Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Light’s), Christian Serratos (Twilight), Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), and Samantha Harris –Host of NBC (Stars Earn Stripes). The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine had the chance to speak to some of the ladies mentioned above, briefly talking all things diamonds and designers.
Catching up with the “Twilight” star, Christian Serratos wearing Ted Baker, Yves Saint Laurent and Tacori diamond’s the star dazzled in her red dress and heels. The ‘Breaking Dawn’ star mentioned her love for Tacori, “It’s so feminine and really spruces up the red carpet. I love wearing these” (Serratos playfully motioned to her earrings). The gorgeous diamond drop-earrings completed her look perfectly.
Dania Ramirez, the ‘Devious Maids’ star looked stunning in her Rolando Santana dress and Manolo blahniks. Ramirez sparkled in her Tacori ring and earrings speaking of the iconic brand, Ramirez stated, “I’m loving it. It’s very ‘Old Hollywood’ I especially loved the brilliant jewel tones. I can’t wait to wear the collection.”

The Stars Earn Stripes host spoke about her involvement with Feeding America, and her recent guest appearance on ‘The Pyramid’. Mentioning her love for Tacori, “I love the emerald color they are using. ‘The City Lights’ collection is classic and exudes that ‘Old Hollywood’ look and feel, Tacori did a beautiful job”.
Guests enjoyed themselves well into the evening as, ‘Club Tacori’ kicked-off. The black and white checkered dance floor was a welcomed addition to the event. Tacori’s ‘City Lights’ collection is as breathtaking and beautifully designed as the event itself. I stayed as late as I could and then slipped away just as the clock struck midnight. It was an evening that sparkled, both figuratively and literally, and I suspect will be remembered for quite sometime.
