’90s Choker Flashback: Black Ribbon Necklaces on the Red Carpet!

Neck jewelry became popular during the Victorian era, and its resurgence as statement accessory proves that history often repeats itself. Last night at the premiere of Jules Massenet’s ‘Manon’ in New York City, two familiar faces walked the red carpet flaunting black ribbon necklaces.

Who would’ve thought that the ribbon necklace would be in vogue this year? While everyone else was thinking edgy or classic, clearly these two stars went for a modernized Scarlet O’Hara romantic look. In February last year, Jennifer Lawrence also took the ribbon with her to the red carpet.
