Seems that the stars of Hollywood have a new best friend.  Recent red carpets reveal that the gals are trading in their diamonds for a much more colorful stone in their accessories.  The first notable turquoise appearance was on Blake Lively when she wore it to the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards Gala back in January.  The pop of unexpected color works especially well with jewel tones, crisp whites, and warm citrus hues.  So next time your ensemble seems a bit lackluster, why not add some color with a touch of turquoise.
