It takes a confident woman to pull of Bulgari's famous serpent necklace. Covered in diamonds and curving heavily around the wearer's neck, the necklace is hefty, blingy and totally iconic (enough so that Bulgari draped its store with a giant light-up one for the holidays).
Rachel Weisz showed the snake serpent off in her Bulgari ad campaign, and actress Jaime King wore the piece backwards at the 2012 Met Gala. But on Sunday, Jessica Biel braved the Cannes Film Festival red carpet with the reptile wrapped prominently around her neck, paired with a muted strapless Marchesa dress for maximum impact.
It's a bold piece of jewelry, particularly for a woman who typically wears so little. So did Jessica pull off this major bling or does the jewelry overwhelm her?
