Inspired by the Oscars
March 2, 2012
Well now that the Oscars have come and gone, we’ve seen the best and worst dressed, and winners proudly accept their awards. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I love watching the red carpet of any awards show the most! I love seeing who wore what, and how they looked. Who took a chance, and who kept it classic. But most of all, I love love love seeing the jewelry!!! Yes, you’re right, I’m slightly obsessed. (It’s a good thing I’m in this industry)
My top four (I couldn’t narrow it down to three) looks were:
1) Viola Davis in a gorgeous emerald green Vera Wang number, topped off with Lorraine Schwartz emerald earrings. The diamond and filigree details were exquisite. The diamond cuff was also lovely, but clearly the earrings stole the show!
2) Gwyneth Paltrow in a unique, simple and quite chic Tom Ford caped white dress. Her diamond cuff by Anna Liu could not have been any more perfect. The ring next to the cuff was almost as stunning, but made a to-die-for combination.
3) Ellie Kemper in Armani Prive was marvelous in metallic. Copper was made for her! Love the statement earrings, love the hair, love everything!
4) Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. SO glad she went with him for the big awards show! And again, statement earrings were perfection!
Whenever I watch an awards show it gets me thinking about the jewelry we have in stock, and what pieces would be fun to wear to a local event or gala. Getting all dolled up and blinged up would be a lot of fun! Here are a few of my top picks…
