While the big names, history, and prestige are what make the Oscars the showbiz awards juggernaut that it is today, it’s the big name stars, designer clothing and dazzling jewellery on the red carpet that gives the event its glamour. While much has been said about the OTT outfits, those shimmery, ethereal and rare jewellery pieces playing their parts in adding that finishing touch to an outfit, have been the unlauded stars.
This year, large, uncoloured stones and signature pieces took centrestage at the Oscars and the buzzword for outfit perfection was balance. Constance Wu balanced her stunningly sunny Versace outfit with a pair of perfect drop earrings from Atelier Swarovski. Anything more would have indeed been overkill. At the Oscars after party, newly-married Miley Cyrus ruled the floor in a low-cut Saint Laurent gown. The simplicity of the outfit and the star’s glowing skin were the perfect canvas for several signature jewellery pieces from Bulgari.
