Oscar Jewelry 2015
Awhile ago I wrote a post about the lack of jewelry worn at the Oscars. This year, however, I noticed many more necklaces. Earrings are always there but not always necklaces.
Here is a few of the "showier" pieces. Definitively noticeable.
The emerald green Atelier Versace gown matched Scarlett Johansson's statement bib necklace and emerald green ear jewels from Piaget. The Mediterranean Garden ear cuff set featured five pear-shaped emeralds, 278 brilliant-cut diamonds, four pear-shaped aquamarines and two pear-shaped green tourmalines.
Viola Davis’s pearl and gold neckpiece.
Cate Blanchett’s turquoise Tiffany & Co. beaded bib is a real statement necklace.
Here are two more:
Margot Robbie’s Van Cleef & Arpels necklace, originally designed in 1938 for the Duchess of Windsor, featured a functioning zipper. Now that is a design!
Earrings were the other big statement for the evening. Gwyneth Paltrow wore Fire Phoenix Earrings and Pétales d’Amour Ring by Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie.
I can see why sometimes they don't wear jewelry. Many of the write ups about the jewelery were not very kind. Mr. Black, in particular has nothing good to say.
For Cate Blanchett: "What a missed opportunity," the reality star said, adding that the necklace is "for the rodeo. Not for the Oscars. The shape didn't compliment the dress, [and] turquoise should be worn with white."
"Poor thing!" Black said about Viola Davis, who wore a "V-necklace [and] straight-line dress. [It's] the wrong shape for this dress. Nice enough for a luncheon but not a black-tie Oscar event." Black described the statement necklace as "barely ordinary, certainly not spectacular," saying "seen these at the Melrose and Fairfax flea market." Ouch!
So many critics. Good think I'm not scrutinized that way. Or at least not have the comments someone might have show up in print. :-)
Did you enjoy the Oscar jewelry?
Until next time,
