Earlier this week London hosted the BAFTA awards and although a lower-key affair than its American counterparts, a wonderful array of stars walked down the red carpet. Jewellery was heavily diamond based (as usual) although there were more necklaces to be seen rather than the almost exclusively bare-neck-and-earrings look that tends to grace most red carpets.
Cate Blanchett wore a Chopard white gold and diamond pendant. From the "Animal World" collection it featured diamond doves that moved! Bonus points for something different Cate :)
Lea Seydoux wore large Chopard diamond earrings that were enhanced by her Veronica Lake style hairstyle.
Helen Mirren wore diamonds from London's jewellery icon, Asprey, that had to compete with her glittery gown.
Uma Thurman wore a classic necklace from Chopard with 32 carats of diamonds that suited her black sheath dress.
Michelle Rodriguez wore an unusual necklace and bracelet set that went with her edgy leather outfit.
Gillian Anderson went for a vintage gown and matched it with a Adler sapphire and diamond necklace and earring set.
Samantha Banks wins my vote for something different (closely followed by Cate's pendant) as she wore pearls! Pearls are always gorgeous but there is a definite lack of them on the red carpet. Samantha didn't wear just any pearls of course, but a long necklace of gold and natural toned South Sea pearls by Yoko London, that she wore doubled. It set off her plain cream dress beautifully!
What was your favourite?
Till next :)
