Top 5 Statement Necklace Looks Worn by Celebrities

When Anna Wintour first put Kim Basinger on the cover of Vogue in 1991, she introduced us to an entire new culture of style icons. It makes sense, we can't help but be influenced by the people we feel we know, whose faces we see everyday on our movie and television screens, and larger-than-life stares from 100' billboards.

Today, entire publications and blogs are dedicated to celebrity style, with sprinkles of their jewelry thrown in. If I had it my way, the focus would be reversed, with more attention to jewelry and accessories than their clothes. To me, the jewelry is the outfit and the clothes are the accessories. Imagine the outfits in the list below without the necklaces - not the same is it?

So here's my top 5 list of statement necklaces I've seen worn by celebrities.
1. Malin Akerman wearing vintage Miriam Haskell:

2. Kate Moss wearing Fiona Paxton (I know, technically she's a model, but I consider her bordering the model/celebrity line)

3. Amanda Seyfried wearing Tom Binns (love the blue/magenta contrast):

4. Rihanna wearing Burberry:

5. Michelle Obama wearing Fenton Fallon (Michelle gives Carla Bruni, France's First Lady and a former model, a run for her money!)
