Giveaway Alert! Tweet for a Chance to Win Abbie Cornish’s Slight Jewelry Earrings

We’re well-acquainted with the statement piece (that standout item in your wardrobe that consistently incites oohs and aahs without fail), but only lately has that attention-grabbing element traveled upward to the earlobes. We’ve outwardly professed our love for ear jackets and the equally eye-catching ear cuff, but now we’re swooning over Slight Jewelry’s quirky rose gold stunners, which draw on the swirly geometric motifs and ornate embellishments of the art deco movement. What’s more, Amanda Campbell, the designer of the Brooklyn-based brand, prides herself on using ethically sourced diamonds and repurposed vintage jewelry to create each unique, handcrafted piece. For a rebellious look, you can try combining two shapes, as Cornish did with her serpentine hoop and spiral spike stud.

And if you’re craving statement lobes ASAP, fear not, because Cornish’s earrings can be yours! We partnered with Slight Jewelry to give away one pair of the rose gold vermeil hoops to five lucky readers. To enter for a chance to win, snap a shot of yourself donning your most stand-out earpieces and tweet it to @InStyle with the hashtag #instylebling. You have until Oct. 16 to send in your entries, and winners will be selected by Oct. 23. Go ahead, clip on something sparkly and show us your best selfie!

Friends Reunion Alert! Watch Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow Get Back Together on Kimmel

For fans who have spent the past decade waiting for a Friends movie, or better yet a Friends reunion, that wish finally came true on Wednesday night. Well, kind of. Jennifer Aniston visited Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her latest film Life of Crime, but her pal Jimmy Kimmel had a bit of a surprise for her during her visit. He had penned a fan fiction script for an episode of Friends, and created a replica of the famous kitchen to boot! And who better to act out a scene from the sitcom than Rachel Green herself?

While Kimmel’s Friends script wasn’t exactly of the best quality (he took on the role of David Schwimmer’s Ross) and he tried to get a faux-annoyed Aniston to wear a Rachel cut-inspired wig (she declined), the actress got by with a little help from, well, her friends. Both Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow popped up to revive their roles as Monica and Phoebe, respectively, and played along with the bit before Kimmel took it just one step too far. Even if his fan fic was lame, he still gave us the gift of seeing the gals of Friends back together again, and for that we’re grateful. (Alright, Friends fellas, you’re next!)

Watch the mini Friends reunion here:

Plus, see the evolution of Jennifer Aniston’s looks, from 1987 to today!
