Model Eva Herzigova believes wearing jewellery shows confidence and makes people pay attention.
Eva Herzigova loves the attention wearing jewellery brings her.
The former Victoria's Secret beauty is currently promoting Chopard's launch of animal-inspired accessories to celebrate their 150th anniversary and enjoys to don some show-stopping pieces.
Eva said: "I think jewellery is more about attraction. It's very intimate and very personal, but it also means you want to be noticed, to be seen, to shout something. So I think a woman who wears jewellery must be a strong character, someone who's not afraid to go: 'Look at me!' "
The model - who made her name posing for Wonderbra with the slogan 'Hello, boys' written across the billboards - remembers the first time she was given jewellery on her 18th birthday.
She added to Vanity Fair magazine: "It was composed of three little hearts, so it was like my mum, my dad and me, or my brother, sister and me."
The 37-year-old star has built up a strong friendship with Chopard's co-president Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele since they met in the 90s in Cannes and since then Eva ensures her red carpet looks are littered with their jewellery.
She said: "I'm kind of a classic girl, but I like a sense of humour, so I very much appreciate what Caroline does."
