You should remember the on-screen (and off-screen) chemistry from The Proposal stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. While the two have always denied being romantically linked we can’t help but think they would be perfect together. This week, Sandra surprised Ryan on the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie The Change-Up. (I hear it’s hilarious by the way)
The unexpected guest had Ryan thrilled as he ran over to her to say hello. The two posed for pictures together and I have to say Sandy is looking damn good!
The actress pulls off an effortless look on the red carpet with a black Lanvin jumpsuit and gold jewelry that really makes her summery glow pop. She’s looking quite fabulous with large gold bracelets and hoop earrings. Women often have the misconception that hoops are only for youngsters but we totally disagree! Stars like Helen Mirren rock hoops all the time.
As we thought it might be, The Kings Speech was the big winner on Oscar night. I think that war-era femininity might be responsible for the resurgence in lace this year, such as on Mila Kunis, Amanda Seyfried, Madonna at the after-party and, most notably, Scarlett Johansson who just. Looked. Amazing. I know some in the blogosphere are torn about this one, but I loved it. Despite all the yelling paparazzi, screaming fans and flashing cameras, Scarlett somehow always manages to look totally relaxed on the red carpet, like she was born to be there.
Despite The King’s Speech impressive influence, The Black Swan seemed to make the biggest fashion-impression this year – and I’m holding it responsible for the reserved palate of colors we saw. Other than a few ladies in red (Sandra Bullock, we love you!), it seemed like everyone was in variations of black/grey or white/beige. Not only that, did you notice a number of gowns were decked out in feathers and feathery fabrics (Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts, Sharon Stone, Halle Berry and others).
For the most part, jewelry was kept simple and classic, with a perfect pair of diamond studs appearing over and over. It’s a good reminder that when you’ve got fancy fabrics or necklines going on, it’s wise to let your jewelry be an accessory, not a distraction. And you can never, ever go wrong with a pair of diamond studs.
One noteworthy jewelry statement was made by hostess Anne Hathaway, who let her baubles match her bubbly personality with an attention-grabbing cocktail ring. I found 5-carat rock version for an easy $45. Nothing will make you feel more outrageously glamorous for a better price.
As the Academy Awards quickly approach we can’t help but reminisce about the memorable jewelry worn by red carpet beauties over the last few years. We’ve drooled over plenty of Oscar jewelry – but we narrowed it down to five favorites for the sake of this post.
Amy Adams dazzled in an elegant red gown paired with a bold multi-gemstone necklace. This eye-catching piece featured 39 carats of diamonds, and 630 carats of sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Oh my!
Nicole Kidman may be beautiful but she tends to fade in the background with her typical black or pale colored gowns. At the 2008 Oscars she took her standard black attire and added a jaw-dropping 1,399-carat diamond necklace to spice up her look. One thousand three hundred ninety-nine Carats!! Don’t you just love the lives of the rich and famous?
Sandra Bullock won the Best Actress award at the Oscars last year and wins the Best Earrings Award from Ice.com. The combination of her gown, vibrant red lips and hair positioning made her earring stand out in the most elegant way. So simple, so perfect.
Angelina Jolie wore magnificent 115 carat emerald drop earring and matching 65 carat ring at the 2009 Oscars. This is my personal favorite Oscar jewelry memory. Hoping Angelina will top this look at the 2011 awards ceremony on Feb. 27th.
I may not have been around to watch the 1970’s Oscars but after doing some research I couldn’t help but admireElizabeth Taylor’s69 carat pear-shaped diamond necklace. These days most actresses borrow their jewels from designers for the night but Mrs. Taylor pulled this stunner out of her personal jewelry box.
What are some of your favorite jewelry from past Oscar red carpets?
