2011 MTV Movie Award Highlights: The Hottest Photos, Most Akward Moments and Ramped Up Romance Rumors

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles

For starters, the sizzling photographs begin with this little gem via the undefinable beauty of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The stunning Top Maxim Girl sticks with her signature completely sexy look with her animal print mini and trendy heeled slip-ons. 

Holland Roden Arrives at 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Classic Glamour

Some Actresses chose to stick with the look of old Hollywood Glamour, like this classic image of Actress Holland Roden represents in near perfection. We adore her swept up hairstyle with vintage dangle drop earrings and yellow gold accents.

Kristen Stewart arrives at 2011 MTV Movie Awards

On the playful side, Twilight Icon Kristen Stewart made sure to keep viewers and attendees aware that safety pins and bondage styled punk were going to remain at the forefront of her red carpet looks. To this, she gave an enthusiastic thumbs up with her usual tousled locks and chipped nail polish.

Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake engage in what is now referred to as the 'most inappropriate moment in MTV Award history'

Ok. Children were watching this, right? I know that these awards have gotten more and more severely crass as the years since ’83 have passed, particularly where Timberlake is involved. We all remember that famous wardrobe malfunction at the Superbowl, where he was going to have Janet Jackson ‘naked by the end of the song’ and practically did. Well, he’s living up to his bad-boy of Award Ceremony fame in the exchange between himself and rumored romantic interest, Mila Kunis.

With so much controversy circling around the possible romantic involvement between Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, one couldn’t consider the grope show to be entirely necessary. However, when we recall ‘FartMan‘ in 1992 (thanks Howard Stern), and Sacha Baron Cohen — in full Brüno glory dropping down right into the face of Eminem in 2009, tilling this gesture as the MOST inappropriate move in MTV Award history is a bit of a stretch.

How quickly we forget the inappropriate exchanges of the past… Like the Madonna/Britney Spears make-out session, or the Diana Ross acknowledgement of Lil’ Kim’s exposed body parts. I don’t think the comedic duo of Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake exceeded the inappropriate president that was set long before them by the MTV Movie Awards acts of the past.

In what has now been dubbed ‘the most inappropriate touch in MTV Movie Award History’, here is the footage of the most searched for 45 seconds in television on the evening of June 6, 2011. Let us know what you think!

This picture makes me want to break out in Peter Gabriel‘s, ‘In Your Eyes.’

Olivia Wilde: Securing Check at LAX (notice the AWESOME tee!?)

We are wild over Olivia Wilde! You may remember first spotting this charismatic actress during her Abercrombie Modeling days. She has since earned herself accolades for her impressively versatile acting chops, with a recurring role on the hit sitcom, ‘House’ and an upcoming role in July’s ‘Cowboys and Indians.’

Wilde dubs herself the “eBay Queen,” exclaiming that she’s not exaggerating when she notes spending hours at a time antique jewelry and clothing eBay browsing.

While the graceful and unique Olivia Wilde has had an outstanding career throughout these past five years, her work schedule and personal matters unfortunately resulted in the dissolution of her seven year marriage to Tao Ruspoli, a photographer and documentary film maker. Since the split, a spike in media focus and paparazzi attention has been invested in discovering any new romantic interests in the life of Olivia Wilde.

Bradley Cooper Rumors:

Bradley Cooper getting Wilde with Olivia? Maybe. ‘The Hangover Part II‘ star and Olivia Wilde were spotted getting their flirt on at an industry party in New York earlier this week. -via PopEater.com

Bradley Cooper, 35, has just recently called it quits with longtime girlfriend Renee Zellweger, leaving him open to many romantic rumors circulating, as well. They include Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson and a few other gorgeous Actresseses, Models and Dancers. 

“Life & Style is reporting that newly single Olivia Wilde and Bradley Cooper have been out together twice since the pair hooked up at the Boom Boom Room last Saturday. The two were introduced while attending the Saturday Night Live finale after party and quickly got very chatty with each other.” –PerezHilton.com

Watch the PopEater Video of these two getting steamy: http://www.popeater.com/2011/05/25/olivia-wilde-bradley-cooper-dating/

Justin Timberlake Rumors:

Last we heard about rumored Justin Timberlake/Olivia Wilde romance, JT’s rep was saying that the two are JUST FRIENDS, and we were NOT convinced.

Then we heard that the two were seen partying with Mila Kunis at last weekend’s SNL afterparty, “chatting” the night away and then leaving the party “at the same time.” via: PerezHilton.com Rumor Mill 

According to Celebrity Buzz Reports, JT was spotted last month ‘dancing the night away’ with costar Olivia Wilde in Hollywood.  They were seen together once again last week at Timberlake’s NYC Restaurant, ‘Southern Hospitality‘. Reps for both parties, of course, say that the two are ‘just friends’ and that both are single. 

Rumors about a romance between these two skyrocketed following the announcement that Olivia would play Justin Timberlake’s Mother in an upcoming movie by Andrew Niccol. Not officially released with a title, the  movie is said to be about “a society where aging stops at 25 and time has become the currency. The rich are immortal and the rest struggle to stay alive.”

Wilde With Glamour

When this gal cleans up, she really shows off her over-achieving style skills. With smokey, sultry eye makeup and incredible pieces of jewelry, Olivia Wilde can be found on a hefty variety of best dressed lists.

At the 2010 Golden Globes Awards she was seen wearing a Gucci gown accessorized with an ornate black onyx and diamond fan platinum bangle from Tiffany & Co. worth $165000. She wore a creamy yellow gown with soft ruffles accessorized with an expensive bracelet and vintage style earrings to the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in California hosted by Gaydon Carter.

The New Brand on the Block: TechnoMarine- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Working at a jewelry store that specializes in luxury watches at great prices, I tend to focus on the watches people wear. Lately I have seen many people sporting TechnoMarine brand watches on their wrist; TechnoMarine was launched in 1997 in St. Tropez, France by entrepreneur Franck Dubarry. TechnoMarine became widely popular with release of their first watch the Raft. The Raft had a really fresh look due to its adventurous and modern design. The watch featured a stainless steel case that had a unique rubber cover and a large distinctive unidirectional bezel. One reason for this watch’s popularity was its colorful dial and matching bracelet. The band and case cover could be easily changed so it was common for owners to swap bands to match their outfit.

The Raft went on to sell over 50,000 in its first year of production, quite a spectacular feat for such a new watch brand. Franck Dubarry moved their headquarters to Los Angeles, California in order to gain an even larger portion of the market. It was in LA were TechnoMarine really started producing the watches that would mark their legacy. A  full collection of diving watches were released in the late 90’s, this initial collection consisted of a combination of PU and stainless steel chronographs – combining chic French design with unmatched Swiss technology. TechnoMarine learned from the popularity of its first line of watches and continued to produce watches with a variety of bright colors with interchangeable colored bands. Watch Repair.

TechnoMarine continued it success with the release of the TechnoDiamond in 1999. The TechnoDiamond has the same look of the Raft with many of its features but has diamonds in the bezel. This allowed TechnoMarine to attract customers who were looking for a more luxurious watch. You really have to admire TechnoMarine for reaching such great heights in a market that is inundate with well established and trusted watch brands. TechnoMarine crafts beautiful watches and one I have been seeing them coming into our store more and more. These type of watches are great for those looking to establish a distictive watch collection without having to spend thousands. Typically these watches run from$200 to $400 and the popular Raft is only $190.

Hublot’s Human Rights Watch- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Everyday I come across luxury watch brands who have created limited edition watches to commemorate special occasions or corporate hallmarks; rarely do I see a watch brand craft a limited-run of timepieces solely created to benefit such a selfless cause. Hublot will release seven watches which will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Human Rights Watch Organization. These amazing pieces were created and designed to pay tribute to the Deceleration of Human Rights and Human Rights Watch’s never-ending quest on focusing international attention where ever human rights are violated.

One watch will be auctioned off at each of the seven different cities chosen to hold an annual Human Rights Watch dinner. Hublot is hoping each watch will bring in much-needed funds for this amazing organization. The cities are New York, Los Angeles, Geneva, Paris, San Francisco, Beirut and Saint Moritz. Watch repair.

Hublot partnered with world-renowned artists Roger Pfund to design the dial of this amazing watch; Pfund is best known for creating the current French Franc and a few of the designs of the Euro. The ceramic dial contains laser engraved micro-letters of the Deceleration of Human Rights. All 30 articles are on the dial divided into 60 lines that would represent each minute on the dial. On the right side of the dial at the three o’clock position is one of the seven cities where the fund-raising dinners will be held. The case is 43mm and the dial, leather band, case and bezel are all black.

Louis Vuitton

The Clous bracelet is one of Louis Vuittons signatures items from the Emprise collection. This collection was introduced in 2004 and was Louis Vuittons first foray into the jewelry market. Consisting mainly of gold and diamonds, Louis Vuitton strived to combine innovation, luxury and sensuality to create pieces that would resonate with consumers. Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuittons head designer, faced the daunting challenge of creating a new product line that was both modern and true to more than 150 years of design tradition. The Emprise collection and the Clous bracelet more than succeeded in this regard.

The Clous bracelet is beautifully made; radiating a simple elegance. You can find this bracelet in yellow, white and even rose gold. Each bracelet is crafted with a small clasp on the outer circumference that can be opened for easy removal of the bracelet. This differentiates the Clous from the similar Cartier Love bracelet which needs a screw to remove. Making the Clous a great option if you intend to wear a bracelet everyday.  Often wearers will layer multiple Clous bracelets of different sizes on the wrist, creating a impossibly chic look. Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we have many Clous bracelets for sale at an affordable price, Florida jewelry Click on the picture above to be sent to one of our items.

Jewelry Terminology: Princess Cut

Princess cut

Princess Cut

In jewelry terminology a princess cut is a term that you may have heard quite often. The princess cut is an other name for a square modified brilliant, the second most popular cut shape for diamonds, next to a round brilliant. The term princess cut refers to a diamond with a  square or rectangular face-up shape and a profile similar to that of an inverted pyramid with four beveled sides.

A fairly new diamond cut created in the 1960s, it is a more distinctive alternative to the popular round brilliant cut. This has caused the princess cut’s popularity to sky rocket in the past decade. Both display a high degree of brilliance but the princess faceting style is very unique and completely different from that of a round brilliant. The Princess cut has a step-modified “Double-French” or “Cross” cut crown and has a unique series of chevron-shaped facets in the pavilion. These features combine to give the princess cut a distinct cross-shaped reflection when the stone is viewed directly through the table.

The princess cut diamond retains about 80% of the rough diamond, while the round brilliant retains only about 50% of the rough. Due to this a square princess cut diamond tends to be slightly cheaper than a round brilliant cut diamond of the same carat weight. The princess cut is popular amongst diamond cutters because of its ability to retain more crystal weight.
