Top 5 Oscar Jewelry Looks

Even with all the excitement the Fashion Weeks has brought recently, our favorite runway is the Oscars red carpet. Like most of you, I had my eyes glued to the TV last night watching all the beautiful stars strut down the red carpet. Here are our favorite jewelry looks of the night.

1. Choker Necklaces:  One of my favorite looks of the night was shockingly Michelle Williams. The adorable actress hasn’t been choosing the most exciting gowns recently but her coral Louis Vuitton dress with peplum detail was a knock-out! (Style Tip: Peplum waists are THE go-to look this Spring) She didn’t over do it with jewelry but chose a diamond choker necklace and a jeweled bow brooch pinned on her dress. I think a simple pair of diamond studs wouldn’t have hurt but she looks lovely! Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Katie Holmes also rocked the choker look. Get the look for less at Ice

2. Over-sized rings: The stars might not have worn huge necklaces or earrings at last night’s Oscars but they made up for it in the rings category. Ladies like their rings big! Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Stacey Keibler all wore statement rings that grabbed our attention.

3. Cuffs: The other over-sized look of the night went to cuff bracelets. Gwyneth Paltrow may have had an understated white gown but she still looked elegant and chic with the help of her cuff bracelet and cocktail ring. Viola Davis also paired a wide cuff with her emerald green gown.

4. Drop Earrings: I was expecting to see lots of chandelier earrings as we did at the Golden Globes but instead Hollywood’s beauties opted for drop earrings which are less dramatic but just as stunning. With drop earrings you have the opportunity to show off large diamonds or gemstones. Mila Jovovich, Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman all looked drop-dead gorgeous in their drop earrings.

5. Sapphires: For the last few years emeralds have been the most popular colored gemstone on the red carpet and it was definitely there this year too but we were thrilled to see sapphires growing in popularity. Another woman who sported the peplum style was the hilarious Tina Fey who opted for a navy blue Carolina Herrara gown. She accessorized this look with blue sapphire chandelier earrings similar to these topaz or tanzanite earrings. Leslie Mann also looks gorg in blue sapphire jewelry.

5 Fashionable Funny Females

Who will be the winner’s of Best Lead & Supporting Actress in a Comedy at next week’s Emmy Awards? We don’t know but we do know which nominees with be winners on the red carpet. We want to highlight some of our favorite funny females who always look fabulous to us…they also happen to be nominated for Emmy’s this year.
Tina Fey: Fashionable? Heck yes! Who would have thought Liz Lemon from 30 Rock would pull off such glamorous red carpet looks. We love Tina’s transformation over the years from a simple behind the scenes writer to a fabulously funny actress and fashionista. She’s been more daring recently with form fitting bright gowns with large diamond jewelry. Absolutely love her! Don’t you?
Laura Linney is nominated for her work in The Big C which she plays a mom trying to bring humor into dealing with having cancer. This natural beauty seems to always look so put together at any event she attends. I love that she’s often seen in the same jewelry like these leaf motif earrings pictured here. Shows how versatile jewelry is & that not all celebs need to borrow super expensive jewels for the red carpet. Props to you Laura!
Kristen Wiig: Probably my favorite female Saturday Night Live cast member ever. Hilarious! On SNL she is often wearing crazy outfits and playing outrageous characters so you don’t realize how lovely Kristen is underneath all that. When she hits major events she pulls off these super stylish looks so effortlessly. She really stands out in my opinion from other female comedians with both her style and humor.
Sofia Vargara: The bombshell of the group always looks sexy. This Modern Family actress is not afraid to wear rich bright colors. She always pairs these colors with sparkly jewels, most often in diamond earrings and cuff bracelets. The contrast of the colorful outfits, bright jewels and her dark skin makes for one hot combination. Modern Family is nominated for 17 Emmy’s! Hope they win a couple of them.
Betty White! Who doesn’t love this Golden Girl? 90 may be around the corner for Mrs. White but that hasn’t stopped her from putting on her best and hanging out with the youngsters. You can almost always see her in pearls and smile. She’s still making people laugh on her show Hot in Cleveland and movie roles such as The Proposal which I LOVED! Decades older than other nominees she still manages to get nominated for Emmy’s. Good job Betty!
Who are some of your favorite funny females? Tune into the Emmy’s this Sunday to see who will win!
