Schiaparelli’s Daniel Roseberry’s recent couture collections have single-handedly brought back OTT body jewellery into the fashion scene. Giving the female form an artistic treatment, Daniel’s idea of body jewellery is all about making pieces that accentuate and enhance a woman’s voluptuous frame. If that wasn’t enough to convince you to change your jewellery game, Rihanna dropped her pregnancy announcement dripping in beaded jewellery—cascading perfectly on her baby bump. Here are some of our favourite OTT jewellery moments that can serve you some serious sartorial inspiration.
1. Shay Mitchell
Taking a cue from Rihanna’s pregnancy style booklet, actor Shay Mitchell recently stepped out in a bump displaying ensemble—punctuating the look with some silver OTT body jewellery.
2. Bella Hadid
Remember when Bella Hadid absolutely owned the Cannes red carpet in this fresh-off-the-runway Schiaparelli number? The hero element of the couture attire was the lung-shaped necklace that elevated her all-black solid gown like a dream.
3. ELLE Fanning
Why do you need a piece of cloth when you can wear giant chain-shaped jewellery as a cropped top. Elle Fanning made head turns as she walked on the red carpet for an award function in this sculpted Balmain number, paired with a plain black sleek skirt.
Beyoncé took the body jewellery game to a whole new level in this custom-made, name-chain logo suit by Area. Don’t want to directly layer OTT jewellery on your body, add it to your outfit, just like Bey did.
For Balmain’s Resort-Wear 2022 collection, designer Olivier Rousteing ditched fabric and created corsets, blouses and dresses out of beads and stones— morphing ensembles and jewellery into a single couture piece.
