Swarovski is synonymous with luxury and vivacity. It is, after all one of the largest purveyors of their world renowned crystal, and a behemoth in the jewelry and fashion industry, attracting only the best and the most high end of its inhabitants. Swarovski and its iconic presence has lasted for almost 120 years and with how the company is growing, there is just no stopping it after all, who doesn’t like a little sparkle.

Here we take a look at some of the most iconic and outrageous creations that Swarovski has proudly and honorably contributed to fashion and history with…


The Victoria Secret angel wings




The Swarovski-sponsored set worn by Lily Donaldson at the Victoria Secret show in 2015 took more than three months to complete and is sprinkled with more than 150,000 crystals. The elaborate purple and pink fairy costume proved challenging even for its creator Cura who claims that it took one day to make each pipe that wraps around her body using a technique he invented. “Nobody has made it before!” he explained. “It’s a dream come true because nobody can make it again.”


Rihanna’s Swarovski encrusted dress at the CFDA




Rihanna’s outfit caused quite the commotion on the red carpet and and while we’ll reserve our right to comment on it, we all can rest assured that Rihanna is a fashion goddess whose confidence on the red carpet can only be defined as admirable. The dress she wore to the event adorned 230,000 Swarovski crystals and was worn with matching gloves, a head scarf and a pink fur stole.


J.Lo’s Swarovski encrusted Coffee mug




Celebrities are just like us, that is, they enjoy the same things we do but the only difference is they’re much better at doing it because who doesn’t enjoy a 100% Swarovski encrusted $600 coffee mug. We’re definitely not fooled by the rocks Miss J.Lo has got.


Karlie Kloss and Swarovski bring back Audrey and Marilyn




Supermodel Karlie Kloss and Swarovski teamed up for a campaign that was nothing short of iconic. The Swarovski campaign saw Karlie Kloss don a little black sequined dress to play a modern day Audrey Hepburn from the iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and in the second video we see Miss Kloss replaying another iconic scene from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes where Marilyn Monroe performs ‘Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend’.



Talk about nostalgia, right?


The Swarovski ‘Nikki’ knee boots from Saint Laurent fall 17 runway




The ‘Niki’ knee boots were featured in most of the looks on Saint Laurent’s fall ’17 runway, but it was this pair that completely stole the show and our heart – not to mention it dominated our Instagram feed for days. They have been handcrafted in Italy and are encrusted with 3000 Swarovski crystals that cover even the signature cone heel.


Marilyn Monroe’s Swarovski gown from when she sang to the President




If there is one moment that keeps Marilyn alive in our hearts, not to mention giving one of the best lines to pop culture, is when she blazingly sang ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ to JFK and that iconic moment had her looking even better in a Swarovski encrusted gown that was later auctioned and sold for a whopping $4.8 million.


The Ruby Slippers from Wizard of OZ



The ruby slippers are the magic pair of shoes worn by Judy Garland in the clasic 1939 musical movie Wizard of Oz. The shoes are now considered amongst the most treasured and valuable items of the film memorabilia, not to mention one of the most important part of pop culture to date.


The King of Pop and his glove



Michael Jackson throughout the span of his career was an iconic figure even with his style that accumulated a vast fan following. When some of the king’s wardrobe was auctioned, his signature white fantasy glove sold for $192,000 with a second crystal glove selling for $115,200.
