Showing off her own sparkling pieces, Audrina Patridge worked the red carpet at the Jewelry Information Center's GEM Awards in NYC on Friday (January 11).

The former reality star looked cute in her little black dress and black peep-toed heels as she displayed her bracelet and necklace before heading inside.

It's a big weekend for 28-year-old as her show, "1st Look" premieres on NBC after Saturday Night Live.

Taking over hosting duties from Ali Fedotowsky, Ms. Patridge will travel the U.S. looking for the hottest restaurants, nightlife, and vacation spots.
