Just when I had gotten so excited by my exotic paper lashes along comes this mask to totally trump them! Turn your face into a bedazzling visage of mystery, no smoky cat-eye or blood-red lip required. Not that there are too many occasions when Erickson Beamon‘s gunmetal-plated, Swarovski crystal-covered masquerade mask would exactly be appropriate. Let’s see…festive galas, flamboyant black-tie parties, and costume soirees would all invite such an accessory. But anything short of an ethereal affair – like an event that simply calls for a flirty cocktail dress – and you’ll like you’re doing nothing besides screaming for attention. Save this mystical piece for when the time is right, and draw the ribbon around your tumbling locks to write your own romance drama. On Net-a-Porter for $2,085.
Pair with: Only a severely embellished clutch will do this mask justice. Choose among sparklers from Alexander McQueen ($2,270), Valentino ($4,195), Gucci ($2,190), and Judith Lieber ($1,695).
