Worn by Cher and freezed by Richard Avedon for Vogue the collection was brougth to public attention also by former First Lady Nancy Regan to celebrate the centenary of the Statue of Liberty.

( L'uso dei diamanti e della catena in oro rappresentano lo stile BVLGARI e in questo caso la collezione Stelle e Strisce è l'esempio secondo Andy Warhol, di come la Pop Art abbia influenzato anche la gioielleria. Indossata da Cher e fotografata da Avedon per Vogue è stata portata alla ribalta dalla First Lady Nancy Regan in occasione delle celebrazioni per il centenario della Statua della Libertà. )
