Katy Perry

American singer and songwriter, Katy Perry is one of the three beauties who has made our ’Hot List’ today. The famous singer wore a glamorous Chanel number at the 2013 Pre Grammy Party. Her long sleeved eggshell and white pearl gown was very refreshing, and a change for Kate who usually adorns candy inspired costumes during her concerts and music videos.

We’re not used to Katy Perry being so stylish, but she turned heads in this pearl encrusted dress. Everything down to her pinup hair reminded us of old Hollywood. The pearls looked amazing, making the singer radiate on the red carpet! As a finishing note, Kate chose diamond and pearl drop earrings - which brought the beautiful outfit together. Nice one Kate!

Lupita Nyong'o

Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o who is best known as Patsey from the historical movie12 Years A Slave; is the next celeb to make our ‘Hot List’ today. Lupita looked awe-inspiring in a custom made Calvin Klein pearl gown at the 2015 Oscar Academy Awards. The intricate dress made by the renowned fashion house featured over six thousand pearls!

Her Calvin Klein gown incorporated countless pearls, sequins, beads and crystals on a cream mesh silk tulle. The accessories were understandably kept to a minimum, with diamond Chopard earrings at handy. Her dress was a huge jewel in itself, it’s not wonder she stole the entire show!

When the family made their grand entrance into Madison Square Garden decked out in exclusive Balmain for Yeezy pieces - Kourtney immediately snapped our attention.
