It was more an evening of the dress than the jewel and the designers were amazing: Marchesa, Gucci, Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and others who did not let us down. Nevertheless, I believe a woman is not dressed to her fullest potential without the best accessories to highlight her style, differentiate and punctuate her look. The jewelry is what tells so much about ones personality. There wasn’t too much risk on this year’s red carpet in terms of jewelry so we must applaud Busy Phillips for her major earring choice – Irene Neuwirth boulder opal and diamond earrings. SHOW STOPPING!!
These were the earrings of the night.
Love Cameron Diaz in Gucci a simple diamond row necklace, looks fab and pure hot glamour!
Gwyneth needs earrings! Stark and stunning in white Tom Ford. Striking cuff and ring but a bit more sparkle at the face would be the icing on the cake! Safe or daring, it depends how you want to look at it.
Glenn Close is tasteful and graceful in Zac Posen. A tuxedo is always spot on.
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa looked elegant. Can’t go wrong with black, white, and gold embroidery. Small diamond drop earrings, classic like the gown!
Finally!! A fabulous diamond necklace on Natalie Portman with perfectly simple diamond drop earrings. She was the elegant hollywood glam I like to see. The red gown perfected her look.
Wow to Jennifer Lopez. Sexy lady did not disappoint!!! Daring as always in her Zuhair Murad and lovely diamond drop earrings – yet another pair!
Tina Fey; up swept hair, drop earrings, and strapless gown: perfection!
Angelina Jolie, a rich and original combination of Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, and herself. She’s imaginative, distinctive, sexy, dangerous, and knows how to work it all (especially the leg!) Mark your position and take your stand. You go girl!
Meryl Streep glowed in her gown and warmth. I loved the drape and glimmer of the fabric and the gold earring framing her face at the perfect length.
Viola Davis so lovely in emerald green Vera Wang gown with matching earrings.
Rooney Mara in white feminine Givenchy Haute Couture with the contrast of her severe black hair. Very interesting!!!
Jessica Chastain is absolutely magnificent in the Alexander McQueen embroidered gown. A vision of hollywood glamour. Possibly my favorite look!
Octavia Spencer from The Help was in a perfectly draped gown to suit and compliment her shape by Tadashi Shoji! Good looking tassel earrings to match.
Michelle Williams perfectly simple in bright coral Louis Vuitton gown. A classy knock out with her simple diamond graduated line necklace set in oxidized gold for a touch of vintage. A diamond bow pin at the waist.
Rose Byrne was incredibly chic and show stopping in her magical Vivienne Westwood. She brought sexy back in a big way and those earrings were the perfect compliment!
George Clooney always dapper and his girlfriend Stacy dressed beautifully in shiny gold lame by Marchesa. Clooney takes home the Oscar no matter what! He predicted “The Artist” will take home the “real” Oscar and he was right!
To a wonderful evening celebrating the exquisite talent in Hollywood, I loved it all and I can’t wait for next year!
