Jewelry designer Seville Michelle Anastos may not be as popular as those she dresses, but her brand definitely causes her celebrity customers to stand out. Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Alica Keys, and Rihanna are just a few of the stars that wear Anastos’ chic jewels. NBCLatino reports:
You may not recognize jewelry designer Seville Michelle Anastos’ name, but if you’re a fan of hip hop’s hottest celebs – think Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and Rihanna – then you definitely have seen the fashionista’s sophisticated, luxe take on the classic door knocker earring.
Anastos grew up in Queens, New York , a borough of that reflects the city’s melting pot of cultures. Half-Cuban, half-Greek, Anastos went to public school with Puerto Rican, Lebanese, Pakistani, Chinese and Spanish kids all while listening to the addictive street beats of 90’s hip hop. It’s Anastos’ love of music, combined with her Cuban mother’s love for flashy gold jewelry and a passion for global influences, that defines her jewelry to this day. And in a world where fast fashion and haute couture have come to define the difference between street fashion and celebrity favorites, this 34-year-old’s affordable line of bracelets, necklaces, shoulder epulet chains and signature earrings have made her the go-to favorite of New York’s fashion-forward teens and hip hop royalty including Ciara, Mary J Blige, Lil Wayne, Lauryn Hill and Prince.
