Anyone who has tuned into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or The Real knows that Garcelle Beauvais is one fashionable woman. Now, you can borrow some style inspiration from the actress thanks to Garcelle x Roni Blanshay, her first-ever jewelry collaboration.
The line boasts more than 100 stunning pieces, ranging from statement earrings to stackable rings, and chokers to cuffs, which are handcrafted in New York City.
We caught up with the actress, director, mother and entrepreneur about the gorgeous collection, RHOBH, the Coming to America sequel, and much more.
Congrats on your first-ever jewelry collaboration! How did Garcelle x Roni Blanshay come to be?
GB: I’ve been so interested in fashion since I was a little girl and still love getting dressed up and pushing style boundaries. I was so happy when I was approached with the idea of a collaboration with the Roni Blanshay team and after more and more conversations with Roni, we both just felt such synergy and knew this would be an amazing partnership.
What was the best part about designing your first collection?
GB: I really took this “designer” role to heart and was incredibly involved in designing my first collection from inception to production and everything else in-between. I was able to imagine a style, have it drawn out, and then see that sketch come to life! Having the styles physically in my hands was magical and they turned out beautifully.
What are some of your favorite Garcelle x Roni Blanshay pieces?
GB: That’s like picking your favorite child but here we go! Some of my favorite pieces are the Open Heart Swarovski Earrings, Laguna Pearl Necklace, Sunset Crystal Earrings, and Rustic Canyon Earrings.
What jewelry can you not leave the house without?
GB: It would hands-down have to be the Marmont Swarovski Earrings because hoops are a style staple; they go with everything!
What can we expect from this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
GB: My second season of Beverly Hills is even more fun and drama-packed than last year. Let’s just say we’re going to keep you on the edge of your seat.
More than 30 years after Coming to America was released, we finally got a sequel to the iconic film this year. What was it like being back on set and what are some of your fondest memories from filming?
GB: Being back on the set of Coming to America was surreal. Seeing Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, and the rest of the cast was electrifying. It was like going to your high school reunion.
Are you working on any other projects at the moment?
GB: Currently, I am working on my podcast Going to Bed with Garcelle. It’s really a fun podcast where we talk about sex, relationships, and everything in between. And is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Have you ever been to the Hamptons? If so, what are some of your favorite spots?
GB: It’s been so long since I’ve been to the Hamptons! When I was modeling in New York, the Hamptons were my go-to on the weekends. I have really fond memories from my trips there and definitely am planning on making a return visit soon!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
GB: In addition to RHOBH, my production company, the podcast and my consistent involvement in the weekly talk show, The Real, I’d keep an eye out for some more fun collaborations with Roni Blanshay and beyond!
