This year’s 91st Annual Academy Awards was a fashion-lovers heaven. They give away Oscar’s based on talent and creativity, but honestly, this year, they should’ve given away awards for best jewellery. Some of the pieces were so out of this world, you could hardly take your eyes off the screen. Then set the dazzling creatures against those stunning dresses… cue jaw drop!
There was so much to look at as the stars took to the carpet from hairdos and makeup to dresses and accessories, but honestly the real winner shimmered in diamonds resting on the necks of some of the most beloved actresses and celebrities. Let’s start with the tennis necklace that Ashley Graham rocked. A double tennis necklace with a black dress and her hair drawn back, she really let the diamonds speak for itself. She paired her necklace with floral diamond earrings, sculptural and, may we say, huge! It was perfect.
Charlize Theron also stole the show with the not one, not two, but 5 (or maybe even 6!) exquisite pieces of jewellery. From diamond wrapped around diamond on her neck to the snake-like wrap-around on her write, she did not shy out. Theron also threw in some huge blue and green stones which highlights this season’s rainbow trend. That baby blue dress, that blunt haircut, and those massive jewels, her stylist hit it out of the park.
Helen Mirren and Regina King also worked the diamond vibe with their bangles and teardrops, rings, and humungous diamond necklace (Yes, Helen!). They kept their dress style minimalistic and went big on diamonds. Sparkling and shiny, King looked like the perfect Oscar statue complete with white dress and head to massive diamond ring!
Obviously we knew Lady Gaga would kill it in the talent department with A Star is Born, that necklace and earring combo was 100. Her music, her dress, the massive yellow diamond (was it really $30M?!), she just walks into a room and… mic drop.
Finally, the rainbow made its way onto the carpet thanks to Kristin Cavallari and Laura Harrier. Cavallari’s bright green teardrop earrings were out of control, but wow Harrier’s pink, green, and diamond necklace paired with her jewel-studded dress was probably one of the best looks of the night.
Finding the perfect statement piece to complement the glam of the night is a real challenge – not all the stars brought their best, but the truth is, if you rock some crazy diamonds, you’ll probably get one of our Oscar Jewellery Awards!
