Bulgari hosted an elegant, blinged-out night in Paris to celebrate the unveiling of its newest High Jewelry collection, Eden the Garden of Wonders. Brand ambassadors Anne Hathaway, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Lisa from Blackpink, were all there to support (dripping in diamonds, of course!).
Presenting the dazzling collection of over 140 unparalleled jewelry pieces and luxury timepieces, the assortment pays tribute to the relationship between exemplary gems of nature and mastermind craftsmanship. Bulgari Group CEO Jean-Christophe Babin hosted the gala alongside Italian Ambassador to France Teresa Castaldo at the Italian Embassy in Paris, a nod to the jewelry house’s Roman roots.
During the night, exclusive guests, socialites, and friends of the brand viewed the High Jewelry show, where models walked down a winding snake-like catwalk, which was inspired by Bulgari’s reptilian icon, Serpenti.
Afterwards, dinner was served courtesy of French chef Yannick Alleno and Italian chef Emanuele Scarello, who blended notes of Italy and France through culinary, location, and the themes of the new collection. Serenaded by supermodel Carla Bruni and Italian singer Mario Biondi, guests included model Tina Kunakey and actor Vincent Cassel, actress Adèle Exarchopoulos, actor Francois Civil and conductor Beatrice Venezi.
The dress code for the night was all about bright, bold and vibrant hues. Blackpink’s Lisa stepped out in a sleek, sunshine yellow two-piece set from South Korean-based label Pinkong, juxtaposing the bold color with a diamond Serpenti wrap watch and an emerald embellished necklace and drop earrings.
Hathaway joined her in a canary hue, opting for a Valentino set from the house’s Spring/Summer 2022 Rendez Vous collection, adorning a statement Bulgari necklace with a matching yellow diamond at its center.
