Models Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin have already discovered Australian designer Lucie Ferguson’s jewellery label Babyanything but one shot with Kim Kardashian has turned the 12-year-old brand into an overnight sensation.
Lucie’s well-connected sister, They All Hate Us blogger Elle Ferguson (who works with 9Style favourite Tash Sefton) was recently invited to the LA beauty launch of Kim Kardashian’s new collection.
Kim posted a photograph with Elle, who was wearing Babyanything’s Aurora Luna Medallion ($820 with a 42cm chain) and Saint Christopher Medallion ($845 with 55cm chain) and the e-store clicking began.
"The response has been amazing and we have now started a pre-sale list," Lucie says.
"The influence of Kim Kardashian and Elle can’t be understated and it’s satisfying to see two beautiful and strong women wearing my pieces," she says.
"The St Christopher’s medallions weren’t actually due to be released until August, but since wearing them at the KKW beauty launch, Babyanything decided to release them and there is now a waiting list. They are handcrafted in a small Italian village that actually produces the medallions for the Vatican!" said Lucie.
Kim, wearing a similar pendant in the post was obviously impressed to with Elle posting:
"The similarities are uncanny... phone always glued to hand... loves a gold babyanything saint chain... obsessed with the kkwbeauty contouring kit... loves to pout... loves a photo booth... just start calling me K-Elle."

The St Christopher medallion Elle is wearing Lucie was inspired by their mother’s own necklace of the patron saint for travellers. Lucie has been making fine jewellery since completing her Fine Arts Degree and studying with influential Australian jeweller Peter Lang.

The arbiters of fashion looked to the heavens above for inspiration at this year’s Met Gala and the jewels worn by the glitterati on the red carpet were up to the divine challenge.
Heavenly Bodies was the theme of this year’s fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute held Monday and those lucky enough to stroll the majestic steps of the museum to the private dinner inside were wearing their Sunday best with elaborate Catholic-themed outfits by Versace, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Saint Laurent and others.
Pairing jewels for the costumes must have been a challenge. The usual barrage of diamonds and colorful gems took a back seat for black gems and lacquer. Vintage jewels made appearances but fewer than I would have expected considering the theme. Yes, crosses were a popular motif, along with elaborate filigree and open worked designs. Yellow gold and white metals were both appropriate with the theme and used often.
No one took to the theme of the event quite like Cartier, which opened up its vault to share its historic Cartier Collection jewels, occasionally paired with some of its contemporary pieces.
Rihanna co-chair of the event along with Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace wore the Cartier Collection pendant as a necklace. The jewel began its life as a lone crucifix in 1934 made of gold, silver, diamonds, sapphires, round faceted rubies, button pearls, opal and round faceted topazes and then was paired with the “Dove of the Holy Spirit" in 1949, made of gold, diamonds, a 17.20-carat star sapphire, sapphires, rubies, emerald, pearl, moonstones and opal. To further adorn her Papal-inspired outfit, she wore diamond rings by Gilan and Narcisa Pheres, and gold hoop earrings and a pearl ring from Konstantino Jewelry.
Several others also chose to wear old and new jewels from Cartier.
