The Golden Globes Jewels
I had fun last night watching the Golden Globe Awards and all the stars in their finery. Did you watch it too?
First, the gowns. The ladies certainly dressed up for the event with so many colours - citrus brights, shimmery whites, glamorous golds, timeless black, deep blues, bright reds, neutral nudes, soft, dusky and coral pinks (and a couple of bright pinks too) and rich shades of green. There were an abundance of one shouldered styles, open or plunging backs and many shiny or beaded/sequined fabrics and details.
Angelina Jolie garnered much attention for her beaded emerald green, long sleeved and low backed, dress. Not quite the statement that her big emerald earrings from the past made, but at least she wasn't in black!
There were many fabulous gowns, but of course, I only watch the spectacle for the jewels ;) Apparently there was over $14,000,000 USD worth of jewellery on the stars - just a bit of bling!
Whilst there was the usual (at least in the last couple of years it has been de rigueur) bare neck, long earring and cuff bangle combination, I was so happy to see the stylists finally realise that necklaces are 'fashionable' again. Yes folks, the drought of bare necks finally broke at an Awards ceremony - albeit mostly in diamonds.
The lovely Helen Mirren sparkled in her Cartier diamond necklace, Natalie Portman (winner of Best Actress) glittered in Tiffany & Co diamond multi strand necklace, Julianne Moore wore a Bvlgari diamond collar that appeared to hold her dress up, Sarah Hyland wore Mikimoto pearl and diamonds around her neck, Diana Argon wore a diamond net necklace and a woman at the table of 'The Kids Will Be All Right" movie (I've yet to find out who she was or a photo of her) sported a glittering double strand of lovely green gems.
On other jewels of note it was nice to see some colour appearing in rings, bracelets and earrings - Kelly Osbourne wore a stunning pair of agate druzy and diamond earrings with a matching cocktail ring and Jessalyn Gilsig wore jawdropping multi coloured sapphire and diamond earrings by Chopard.
Of course, the necklace drought has only just broken, but there's still much headway to be made! Bring them on for the Oscars ;)
Till next :)
