The most stylish people from the world of fashion were out in force in New York in order to attend one of the most highly anticipated events of the year.

The Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner is now in its seventh year and a ticket to the event is one of the most coveted on the city’s social calendar.

Tickets are only handed out to the most important names from the world of Hollywood and fashion, so the chic outfit choices of the guests are likely to have a big impact on our own style choices in the coming months.

While the dress code seemed to be for simple yet elegant clothes, with neat tailoring and muted colours preferred by most of the guests, the jewellery worn was showing a distinct trend.

Jewellery seems to be becoming more minimal, with most of the ladies attending choosing to wear only one or two items, that were then kept minimal and in plain colours.

A big trend was for earrings, but rather than being over the top designs, the style was instead for large studs.

Liv Tyler was seen on the event’s chic black carpet wearing a small pair of diamond earrings, that were clearly visible as she had her long black hair swept up.

Actress Leelee Sobieski went for a different take on the trend at the Chanel Tribeca Dinner, as her larger earrings covered the whole of her lobe, but their compact size stopped them from becoming an overpowering chandelier design.

Studded with light blue stones, they helped to bring out the colour of her eyes.

Robert de Niro’s wife Grace Hightower showed that the style is perfect for ladies of all ages, as she sported a small loop pair that were covered in sparkling stones.

Teamed with a thin gold necklace, her jewellery perfectly complemented her elegant black dress.
