Carat Plus, the Antwerp gem and jewellery trade show, announced that British actress and model Elizabeth Hurley will be the show’s ambassador for the 2018 event to be held in May.
Hurley is currently in her twenty third year of representing Estée Lauder as a spokesmodel, making hers one of the world’s longest running beauty contracts. She has also appeared in more than two dozen movies and starred in television shows.
Carat Plus founder and event director Filip Van Laere said, “We are thrilled to welcome Elizabeth Hurley to CARAT+ 2018. Her iconic beauty, glamorous sense of style and talents reflect the sparkle of the diamond and diamond jewellery industries, making her the perfect choice to be the face of our event.”
Launched in 2017, Carat Plus attracted more than 3,000 visitors and 130 exhibitors in its first year alone. The Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and the Federation of Belgian Diamond Bourses (FBDB) are the main partners for the 2018 event.
