New York Image Consultant Reveals One of Hollywood’s Biggest Red-Carpet Secrets

New York City’s top image consultant reveals one of Hollywood’s biggest red-carpet secrets: Celebrities wear replica jewelry in order to keep up with the latest fashion trends.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 15, 2007 — Julie Gilhart, the fashion director of Barney’s, was quoted in the New York Times saying she thinks women are more influenced today by party pictures of celebrities than by editorial spreads of models. “It’s the People magazine-Us Weekly syndrome,” she said. So who is setting the fashion trends, mega stars on the red carpet in People Magazine or super models in Vogue? 

New York Image Consultant (, President Elena Castaneda says, “10 years ago there was no celebrity style. They dressed themselves and they looked awful. It was a very ticky tacky style”. When the stars became more fashionable, the famous designers realized the power of the celebrity style influence and started using the stars as walking advertisement. People want to know what the celebrities are wearing. With awards season now in full swing, all eyes are yet again focused and zoomed in on celebrities to find the newest fashion trends and styles. 

It isn’t news that the big name stars are given free jewelry from major fashion designers for big events such as the Grammy’s or the Oscars. But one of the biggest myths is that the stars actually get to keep jewels once the event is over. The truth is, 90% of the time the designers are just lending the jewels for free advertisement. According to Elena Castaneda, it all started with Harry Winston at the 1943 Oscars. Actress Jennifer Jones was up for a Best Actress nomination for her role in ‘The Song of Bernadette’. Harry Winston lent the actress gorgeous diamond jewels and she ended up winning. She thought the jewelry was a good luck charm and the rest is history. 

But what do the stars do when the designers aren’t clamoring to get their jewels on them? Elena says “There are so many different looks, styles, and trends, to appear fashionable; it’s difficult to afford and to keep updated, especially when it comes to jewelry trends. It’s all in the way things are punctuated. It’s all in the details.” She also says that one of the biggest secrets in Hollywood is that stars wear replica jewelry. Instead of real diamonds, real silver, real gold, they wear quality cubic zirconium, sterling silver and gold vermeil; see the Celebrity Style page. 

So if even the Hollywood stars can’t afford the real deal, where does the fashion forward public go to find their trendy Hollywood replicas? Elena says “My favorite source for quality replica jewelry is It’s one of the world’s best kept secrets. is a great resource for my clients! They are the best place on the web to get the celebrity look for affordable prices. They even have their own celebrity blog now!” (
