As you can see the fashion editors are a little OBSESSED with the jewelled bustier, particularly this one by Dolce & Gabbana.

Flashback to the nineties where the bejewelled trend first began:

Christian Lacroix early nineties:  Hell yeah

Designers from Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Versace, Prada, Balmain, Miu Miu, and Jean Paul Gaultier have shown collections adorned in multicoloured jewels for 2012 and 2013 collections;  the runways reminiscent of Aladdins Cave.   The trend is shimmering down to the high street too, with stores like ASOS and Topshop encrusting everything from shoes to bags to Daisy Dukes in gems and sparkles, and the D.I.Y kids are bedazzling up a glittery storm.
