Now that you have the dress, it’s time to accessorize. If diamonds really are a girl’s best friend, the Oscar red carpet is one very popular place! From Fred Leighton, to Harry Winston and Chopard, the Oscars are a feast of carats.
Jennifer Heebner, Senior Editor at JCK, notes the Oscar red carpet has abandoned dainty studs opting instead for big drop earrings and impressive necklaces, citing Monica Stephenson’s tweet on Oscar night, “Nary a diamond stud to be seen.”
Snag the Oscars Silhouette
There is one commonly seen piece of award show style you can easily take straight from the red carpet into your everyday looks – Isharya jewelry. While most stars have to return their mega diamonds in the morning, Isharya jewelry offers a chance to rock red carpet style in an affordable manner.
Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett wore Chopard opal drops, accenting the Swarovski swirls on her nude Armani Prive gown. Check out Isharya’s Bollywood Glam prism mirror earrings for a similar sparkly glam look.
We loved Lupita Nyong’o’s “Nairobi Blue” custom Prada gown—she was truly the night’s stand out. Her accessories were an effortless mix of gold, silver, and a diamond ear cuff, with most of the attention centered on her Fred Leighton headband. However, we were drawn to her gold serpent cuff, the theme of an entire Isharya collection, snakes and serpents.
While some critics called Amy Adams’ Gucci Premiere strapless column gown underwhelming, others felt it really showed off her toned figure. On the other hand, her Rhodochrosite and Blue Lapis Tiffany & Co earrings are undeniably striking. Isharya’s Rose Granite Claw libra earrings take on a similar shape, offering a subtle hint of color and a semi-precious stone.
The Finishing Touches
It takes the right combination of hair, make up and accessories to land on the best dressed list. Make sure your tresses complement your look– a good rule of thumb is to go for opposites. For instance, if your clothing is form fitting, choose a hairstyle that is loose and flowing.
You can really make your eyes or lips pop when you match your make up to the colors in your clothing. Just remember not to go overboard; pair a dramatic eye with a low-key lip, or vice versa. Head over to In-Style for the top 25 best beauty secrets of the stars. For example, Halle Berry notes, “To make lips look naturally pink, I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss.”
