Who got the best jewelry at the Venice Bulgari event: Zendaya, Anne or Priyanka?

Interestingly, Bulgari decided to throw a huge event in Venice last night, which coincided with the Cannes Film Festival’s opening night. Was this some kind of power play by Bulgari? Usually, Bulgari provides all kinds of jewelry for the Cannes red carpet. It says something that the jewelry house staged this event on a Tuesday too. Anyway, Bulgari rented out the Doge’s Palace in Venice and they brought all of their biggest-name celebrities out to model jewelry. That includes Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway and Zendaya.

Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach was there, and he stayed with Zendaya exclusively, making me wonder if Priyanka was maybe the person he referred to when he announced his retirement. Roach dressed Zendaya in a custom Richard Quinn dress for the event. Anne Hathaway wore Versace (perfect for Venice, honestly). Priyanka wore a two-piece ensemble in a gorgeous red-burgundy, and her lipstick matched her look.

I’m not going to ask who had the best look. What I’m asking is… who got the best Bulgari jewelry? Do you think there was a dispute about who got to wear which piece? I think there was, because Anne’s necklace probably should have gone to Priyanka?? Zendaya is wearing the best one though.

    Agreed, Priyanka and Anne should have switched necklaces with their outfits. I don’t blame Anne though. If there was ever a time to pull out the “Do you know who I am?!?!” it’s to wear those rubies! Amazing. This is what I was hoping for with the coronation instead of hats ahoy and tacky cheap looking robes 🙄🥱

  2. Nicole says:

    Priyanka looks lovely but I HATE the cutouts. It does her midsection no favors with some very unflattering angles.

    • Jen says:

      I don’t love cutouts, and I don’t want to see peoples’ midsections all the time, but a cropped blouse and skirt like she’s wearing here is a very popular South Asian style, and I think it’s great to see Priyanka wear it at least some times.

  3. Digital Unicorn says:

    I dunno – I think Anne’s and Zendaya should have swapped necklaces. Z got the better bit of bling but Anne’s would have really gone well with her dress.

    • BW says:

      I agree. I would have swapped Anne’s and Zendaya’s necklaces.

    • meli says:

      Absolutely. The neck line of the dress is competing with that amazing necklace. Zenadaya had a clean palate with the black strapless that would have highlighted that amazing necklace Anne is wearing.

    • Theresa says:

      No…no…no…Anne and Zendaya should not have switched necklaces…Z’s necklace as well as Anne’s were silver and Anne’s dress was gold so she should have had a goldnecklace in order for it to have looked right. Anne needed something gold…and something else done with her hair…it looks like it hasn’t been washed in a month.

      • SAS says:

        Anne’s dress is gold and silver, I think Zendaya’s necklace would have looked a lot better with it.

      • Robert says:

        Anne, in other promo shots, had some kind of medieval head covering that looked like a chain mail cloak. Looked horrible. The promos of all three together was just terrible. She does look like she’s wondering why she’s there…

  4. Shawna says:

    Priyanka, hands down. Whatever’s going on with the midsection brooch is awesome. Zendaya’s is a bit less eye-catching.

    • Southern Fried says:

      I agree and my jaw dropped at how overall stunning Pryanka looked. She’s worn many beautiful things but this is her best look ever imo. It wouldn’t have been the same without the brooch.

    • Tulipworthy says:

      I agree. We have seen that snake type of necklace a lot the past few years.

    • Jen says:

      The floral embellishment at her waist is part of the skirt. It showed on the runway with a different top with matching neckline embellishment. The designer is Miss Sohee, and it’s from her Spring/Summer 2023 collection. Priyanka’s top, probably custom, of course sets off a grand necklace better.

    • Mar says:

      Zendaya for the win but I think they all look great.

  5. Zendaya looked elegant and it all worked jewels hair gorgeous outfit. Don’t care for the other two outfits.

    • Debbie says:

      Usually I’m with Zendaya all the way. Even when I don’t care for what she’s wearing, I think she has an uncanny ability to wear clothes. This time I think the dress is a bit heavy on her. The color and style are overwrought and unsuitable for such a young, modern woman like Zendaya. The gown would be a better fit on Katherine Zeta-Jones or some other older woman. I appreciate her effort to wear her hair up so as not to distract from the jewelry, but her hair has looked better, and her eye makeup is rather heavy. Still a beautiful young woman but she’s done better.

      I like some elements of Anne H.’s look, but the dress is a no for me. The colors don’t suit her skin, and that slit tries too hard. And I don’t know why I don’t like Priyanka C’s look, but I don’t. She’s so beautiful but I think she usually goes over the top when she shouldn’t have to with that face. I guess I don’t care for any of the 3 looks.

      • Carrie says:

        Totally agree with your comments about Zendaya. She usually looks amazing and fun in what she wears. This dress as you said, is CZJ. Not a Z look.
        Priyanka looks amazing. Best I have seen her but some of the midriff shots, as someone else pointed out, are not flattering.

  6. Kate says:

    Is Anne messing with her face? She looks off.

    • cherry says:

      That’s what I came to say. What’s going on with Anne? She looks ill. Maybe she was, IDK.

      • Mvmmom says:

        Anne looks ill. I don’t know what is wrong with her, but she looks truly awful – like Les Mis level awful.

    • Baily says:

      Anne is way too skinny. Does not look good. She needs to eat.

      • Emily says:

        I noticed she looks thinner here, too. But saying someone needs to eat is unhelpful.

    • Josephine says:

      I think it’s just bad make-up (baaad) and she’s lost too much weight. I’m surprised the Ozempic rumors have not followed her. She does not look good. Fun dress but it needed much better hair and make-up.

      • Sandra says:

        Yeah the ozempic trend- or any starvation diet that leads to very rapid weight loss- leaves people with a sort of “deflated” look in their faces

        She seems to have that going on here. I think the rumors haven’t followed her because she doesn’t seem to be on some big promotion run.

        Tbh I’m kind of hoping it’s just a crash diet or fatigue look that didn’t work for her and not over stress or illness or something. it doesn’t look as though she has had some dramatic weight loss elsewhere.

        Or a bad mid face lift her brows and upper eyelids do seem more “snatched”

    • Penguin says:

      It looks like she lost a ton of weight and then had a facelift to compensate for the fat loss on her face. I noticed it in the Met Gala photos too, but because of the big hair/dress, it wasn’t as obvious. She’s only 40, I don’t know why she’s messing about her looks so much.

      • Sandra says:

        That classic “I can’t quite put my finger on the difference” look is usually a mid face life

    • Lurker 25 says:

      Yeah Anne is way too thin for her frame. She looks brittle now. And she’s had a of Botox, at minimum.

      Priyanka certainly nipped and filled her face when younger but I appreciate that she’s embraced curves. She looks so … Juicy 🙂

      Zendaya… Looks amazing as always. Maybe it’s her height, her frame, hey youth… All three probably, that she’s so thin but it just looks normal for her. Like her long bones just grew 6 inches overnight and thinned her out. It’ll be interesting to see how her style and look will evolve as she ages.

      • tolly says:

        Zendaya’s face is full and healthy, even though she’s slender. It’s alarming that so many celebs, especially women, are looking sunken and tired lately. I thought that HD cameras put the crash diet trend to rest, but apparently not.

    • SarahLee says:

      That’s exactly what I came to say. Zendaya and Priyanka look amazing. Anne looks sick and it worries me. And it isn’t just her weight – her skin color looks gray. Her eyes look tired. Her hair looks thin.

    • Olivia says:

      Looks like Anne got her eyelids done. Like everyone else in Hollywood over the pandemic. Sigh.

    • Carrie says:

      Re Anne, she looks like she’s been crying for weeks 😞

    • North of Boston says:

      I think it’s just the sweep of her eye makeup

  7. Shoop says:

    Hmmm the rubies have a bit of a Polly pocket vibe to me.

  8. Kat says:

    Priyanka is my favourite look with the necklace and the brooch. She looks great! I think her necklace would have clashed with Anne’s dress if they swapped.

  9. MsIam says:

    I don’t like that crotch flower thing on Priyanka’s outfit. And yeah they should have swapped jewelry pieces. That yellow diamond on Zendaya’s necklace is “wow”!

  10. Jais says:

    Either way, all three of them look 🔥. Serious 🔥

  11. Mei says:

    Anne’s necklace is truly hideous,that’s all I’ve got.

  12. smcollins says:

    They’re all stunningly beautiful women and their jewelry pieces are to die for, but I vote Zendaya for the win. Her necklace is gorgeous & badass, and a bit more understated (which I personally prefer).

  13. Sasha says:

    Anne has definitely done something to her face. Whether it’s just a lot of weight loss or cosmetic, it’s noticeable. And that’s fine for her, but it definitely coincides with her rising up in the “fashion girlie” world this year. Sigh.

  14. chill says:

    I’m not overly impressed by any of the jewelry. I can’t with Z’s snake necklace. I’m Gryffindor!!!
    But, the comments are spot on about the lack of jewelry at the coronation . It was a snooze.

  15. SAS says:

    Priyanka’s look is amazing and the necklace is perfect. Zendaya and Anne should swap. The Versace is great but it’s not really working with Anne’s colouring.

  16. Velvet Elvis says:

    All gorgeous looks, but Priyanka is a knockout here.

  17. Cel2495 says:

    Hands down Zendaya ! She looks stunning from head to toe

  18. K says:

    I am outraged that we are asked to choose lol. But I adore snake jewels but those rubies oh my God.

  19. Kirsten says:

    Anne has the best overall look, but Zendaya got the best jewels.

  20. lucy2 says:

    They all look gorgeous. I’m not one for BIG jewelry like that, and I don’t ever like snake jewelry so I’m more interested in the gowns. I love Zendaya’s (she always looks flawless) and Anne’s is really interesting.
    Anne looks kind of sad or stressed, hope everything is OK and these are just random photos.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I think that Anne’s hair is too hard of a look with her dress. Otherwise, they all look beautiful!! Though I would have had Anne and Priyanka should have switched necklaces, but that’s MO.

  21. LooseSeal says:

    As the resident Anne Hathaway stan, imma need to defend her here. I’m about the same age as her, and when I hit 40, everything changed. I started to lose weight with very little lifestyle change and all of a sudden I have cheekbones. It’s like I finally lost my baby fat. I went from looking 12 to looking, well, 40. People age in different ways. Let’s let women’s bodies do what they do and let people react to that how they react. I’m loving the wet hair look on her. ETA: Z definitely got the best necklace 😂

    • BothSidesNow says:

      That’s an excellent take! Your face does change once you hit 40. It’s been 20 years for me but as I look at my 30’s to 40’s pictures I can see it.

  22. Ameerah M says:

    Zendaya had the best jewelry followed by Anne. I’m not actually a huge fan of Priyanka’s look or the jewelry with it. I think the necklace is nice but the beading on the dress looks cheap and distracts from the necklace.

  23. HeyKay says:

    Ooh, big jewelry, fun!
    P looks terrific.
    Anne looks awfully thin, even her face looks thinner, like the dress, the necklace doesn’t look real to me. A bit too costume jewelry looking.
    Z, the diamond snake looking necklace has been done too much, IMO.

    P wins this photo. 👍

  24. Dani says:

    For the combo of dress/jewellery/overall look, Zendaya wins this one for me hands down. Anne’s necklace is probably my favourite, but it would’ve looked better with an off-the-shoulder gown.

  25. Elsa says:

    I think all three women were just stunning. I’m not a fan of snake jewelry, but Z rocked it. I loved the ruby necklace best because that is the type of necklace I could only dream of and it was very Queen Charlotte. P looked stunning in her outfit. Someone mentioned her midriff but I think she looks great. Down with having to be perfect. Though she pretty much IS perfect.

  26. Mel says:

    Anne’s makeup and dress are terrible. The colors wash her out. For me it’s Zendaya for the win with Priyanka a close second.

  27. blue says:

    I like Zendaya’s look best. I like Anne’s dress but that necklace is all wrong with a halter. It’s too bulky and the platinum-set (or white gold) rubies clash with the gold halter& cowl delicate neckline of the dress.
    Priyanka is overdone, as usual. Her midriff has gotten soft & would look better covered but she always goes for clingy clothing & maximum exposure. She pushes so hard to look “sexy” that it’s a caricature instead. Her necklace is good with the outfit but the giant pelvic brooch is dubious. It would be a great ornament on a shoulder or hip but at the crotch? Nah.

  28. tamsin says:

    i think Zendaya was the best styled. Necklace and dress complemented each other. I think Anne’s necklace completely overwhelmed her and Zendaya’s necklace would have worked better with her dress. I liked Priyanka’s look, and I assume that huge decoration on her skirt was jewelry. However, that choker looked lost on her chest. She can carry a huge necklace. The pieces definitely showed off some beautiful gemstones

  29. Hootenannie says:

    I remain convinced Priyanka is at the root of the Law Roach drama. I’ve never liked her in general and now I just don’t want to see her. Also I know she is huge internationally but I think in the US she doesn’t have the same wattage as Anne and Z, which I’m grateful for.

    As others have said, Anne looks gaunt and ill and somehow thinner than Zendaya? Her dress is gorgeous but the necklace clashes. Zendaya’s necklace would be perfect there.

    But! I like Zendaya’s streamlined look. I know it’s more “mature” than what we’re used to, but she’s giving old Hollywood glam and I think colored gems would have been the wrong move. Also she has always been slender but she looks like she’s taking care of herself and it’s not worrying.

    As a final note, Priyanka should put her abs away. We get it. It’s annoying when J. Lo does it, too, but she has the benefit of being J. Lo.

  30. Veronica S. says:

    Here forever for the snake necklace. I love that Michelle Williams actually seems to have bought it and wore it multiple times lol.

  31. Ex-DouchesOfCambridge says:

    Pryanka looks amazing!

  32. j.ferber says:

    Priyanka and Zendaya were the two stand-outs for me. I love that Law Roach accompanied Zendaya. Ann did look washed out somehow in the face. I think her make-up game was not dramatic enough for the look she was trying to pull off. But WOW to these goddesses!

  33. Allie says:

    Priyanka’s jewelry wins, hands down

  34. vespernite says:

    Doesn’t even matter who had the best jewels, Zendaya wore them the best! She’s stunning and so poised.

  35. Hmmm says:

    They all look great but there was also Lisa from Blackpink and Liu Yifei who played Mulan a few years ago there!! They had great jewelry on too
