In 2004, fashion designer Michael Kors released his own brand of timepieces. His use of Swarovski crystals and mother of pearl dials combined with various metals offer a wide variety of beautiful watches. These are some of the main factors attracting celebrities to Michael Kors watches. Listed below are just a few of the celebrities seen sporting their Kors watches.
Kim Kardashian – Jet Set Watch
When it comes to glitz and glam there is only one name that immediately springs to mind. Reality TV star and fashion guru Kim Kardashian, known for her love of fashion and jewellery, owns the Michael Kors Jet Set Watch. Contratsting the black face with water-resistant, gold-plated stainless steel and linked band, the Jet Set exudes style and class. This piece also features a date window and chronograph dials.
Jennifer Aniston – Rose Gold Bracelet
Friends and movie star Jennifer Aniston has often been featured in fashion magazines for her unique style. One of her favourite watches she’s been snapped wearing is the Michael Kors Rose Gold Chronograph Bracelet. This stunning chronograph is rose gold plated, including the face and bracelet. The face features a date window and chronograph dials, whilst the bezel is studded with a stone setting.
Victoria Beckham – Gold Over-sized Runaway Watch
Victoria Beckham, perhaps one of the most famous style gurus and fashion designers, has taken to the ‘boyfriend’ trend of over-sized watches. She’s been spotted wearing a gold Michael Kors Over-Sized Runaway watch. This glam and chic piece is chunky and makes a bold statement. The entire watch is made from gold PVD-plated stainless steel, including the bracelet. Water resistant up to 100 metres, its attractive face also offers with chronograph and date features.
Christine Bleakley – Mid-Size Horn Acetate and Golden Runaway
Britain’s TV darling, Christine Bleakley, mainly known for The One Show and being engaged to football star Frank Lampard, also wears a Michael Kors. She’s admired for her subtle approach to fashion and has been spotted on and off TV wearing her Mid-Size Horn Acetate Runaway. This attractive piece features a light champagne face with date window and chronograph dials. Made from golden stainless steel and horn acetate, including the bracelet, it’s water-resistant up to 5 metres.
Ashley Olsen – Golden Runaway With Glitz
Ashley, one half of the Olsen twin actress and designer train, loves her Michael Kors watches; she’s been seen sporting a few different models, the latest being the glitzy Runaway. The entire watch and bracelet is made from golden stainless steel. The face is golden brushed with golden accents. It features a three-hand movement, a date window and chronograph dials. Giving this piece its injection of glam, a crystal-set bezel and bracelet accents make this piece jump off your wrist.
Although these watches are relatively cheap compared to the luxury brands like Rolex, Omega and Cartier, Michael Kors has managed to attract wealthy celebrities and fashionistas simply from his application of elegance, style, glitz and glam. The ‘in’ watches at the moment are the over-sized ‘boyfriend’ style pieces, a trend Michael Kors has capitalised on and developed into many different looks.

Floral, Floral! The floral print trend continues to rule the fashion world and even our fashionista bloggers are digging the trends. I must admit that I, myself have been obsessed with floral print but I’m always skeptic about mixing florals. I’m not sure If can pull off the pants though because I’ve never been brave enough to wear more than one print as most of the times it doesn’t work me. I’m still a huge fan of Floral Print anyways!
To cure my floral dilemma- I googled celebrities spotted wearing floral print! These are some perfect mixed floral looks I’d love to try.
