Barneys DVF Jennifer Meyer Dinner Diane von Furstenberg Tobey Maguire Jennifer Meyer Maguire Michael Douglas

Barneys New York and Diane von Furstenberg started the New York Fashion Week goings on a few days early by hosting a dinner for fine jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer at La Esquina Monday night. Meyer outfitted herself in a teal and brocade DVF shift with large glass paillettes and a slew of her pieces, like diamond bangles, a vibrant emerald-green cigar band and a cuff made from an 18-karat gold stick of hand-pavéd diamonds with two trillion accents on each end. She wore yellow-gold earrings with micro-pavé diamond-bordered green sapphires with a pavé diamond triangle drop.

“I have a lot of [my] new stuff sprinkled in,” Meyer said, noting that she’d taken many of her signatures — like dainty leaves, wishbones, hearts and letters — and embellished them with elements like pavé diamonds, flashing an entirely diamond-encrusted heart pendant containing a hand-cut turquoise arrow with a single ruby “drop of blood” placed below it.

Guests included Meyer’s husband Tobey Maguire; her father Ron, the longtime president of Universal Studios; Michael Douglas;Rachel Roy; Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman, and Jenna Lyons and Courtney Crangi.

“Is it expensive?” Graydon Carter asked Meyer, admiring baubles that were being carefully watched over by a bodyguard.

Von Furstenberg, Meyer’s Council of Fashion Designers of America-supplied mentor, congratulated her charge for being named a runner-up (along with Tabitha Simmons, also in attendance) for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund last November.

“I’m the one who cares about the jewelry. They send the jewelry people to me,” von Furstenberg said of the CFDA.

“Diane loves her jewelry,” Andrew Rosen observed.
