Most of America was tuned into the 81st Academy Awards on Sunday night and watching E!'s red carpet coverage to get a thorough review of everyone's outfits! Since the Oscars are the pinnacle of the award show season, we expected the usual overflow of jaw-dropping ensembles. But surprisingly, a lot of artists decided to come out conservative with the Jewelries they wear. But ofcourse, there were some also that was a standout. Here is to name a few:
Sometimes all it takes to truly make waves on the red carpet is the perfect black dress. Angelina Jolie reminded us of this fashion fact in her floor-length raven Elie Saab Couture Dress. To finish, the actress punched up her already-untouchable status with a pair of 115-carat Lorraine Schwartz emerald teardrop earrings (plus a matching 65-carat ring) and a Lana Marks Cleopatra Clutch. In short: she looked super luxurious and very villainess chic.
Jewelry was big at the Oscars this year, but nothing was as big as the 19th Century Diamond Flower Necklaces from Fred Leighton, seen above on Taraji P. Henson.
We know Heidi Klum was wearing "very expensive" bracelets from Heart Truth for charity, but she's also wearing 3 Diamond Bangle Bracelets and 1 Diamond and Coral Bracelets by Lorraine Schwartz. We don't know how she can lift her arm, but this stacking look is 80's-made-modern with the use of vintage-esque pieces.
One of the loveliest necklaces of the night; this 19th Century Diamond Flower Necklace is from Fred Leighton, too.
So, seeing the Oscar's 2009 jewelry fabs, it seems like Vintage is really back. It's a classic, will never go away, just here to stay.
