Tiffany’s turned Tron at the Guggenheim, as the jewelry house unveiled its 2014 Blue Book against an equally dazzling backdrop: a light and sound show by the Leo Kuelbs Collection.
On Thursday night, The Diamond Sky greeted black-tied guests walking into the dim, spiraling space. Champagne flutes in hand, they threw their heads back as the Tiffany Diamond burst into view on the museum’s rotunda, as other video “gems” hovered and morphed into stars. The precious projections in saturated blue, green, sunny yellow, fiery red, pink and purple reflected the very real jewels seen in the pages of the book and in glowing alcoves around the venue.
“To see them in the cases with the lights, they don’t look better than that,” remarked Jessica Biel, in a deep-throated velvet dress that showed off her knotted lariat of twisted, diamond-dripping strands. Yet another pretty thing, Kate Bosworth, in strapless shell-pink silk, linked her arms in Ms. Biel’s as they cooed over the jewels on their person.
“I think it starts with the blue box,” Ms. Bosworth said on the arrivals carpet, wearing encrusted drop earrings and a linked necklace. “Everyone knows that it’s an emotional thing, jewelry.”
