Patty Jenkins Makes Bold AFI Presence Wearing 'Wonder Woman' Cuff
During AFI's Life Achievement Award event on Thursday honoring Diane Keaton, Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins took a memorable spin in the spotlight when the AFI Conservatory alumna was called out by AFI president Bob Gazzale for her record-breaking film. The nod resulted in a standing ovation for the director, who waved to the capacity crowd inside Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.
Jenkins had already turned heads on the red carpet when flashbulbs popped catching the 45-year-old filmmaker striking a Wonder Woman-approved pose to show off her new accessory: a gold arm cuff.
The Hollywood Reporter overheard Jenkins, 45, saying she bought it at Barneys New York during her film's opening weekend, despite thinking it was "too much" at first. "It was made by Loewe [Jewelry]," she later told THR of the piece, now on sale for $750 at the Beverly Hills location. "Just a gorgeous piece I love."
A Barneys rep confirmed that the story is now selling the Loewe design.
