Fashion is the priority when it comes to public celebrity gatherings, and the Red Carpet Oscar appearances are at the top of the list. Leading designers of clothing and accessories compete with each other using the most celebrated actors on the planet as their models. The fabulous jewelry adorning these superstars and up-and-comings of 2015 totaled perhaps more than $100 million and included countless precious and semiprecious stones. Statement necklaces and earrings, collars and intricate beading on gowns were the raves of the evening.
Two Distinct Styles
The current trending celebrity fashion is not focused on a particular style or color for the season. The emphasis is being placed on strong contrast or matching gem color to clothing color. Cate Blanchett wore a black Versace dress with a tremendous turquoise necklace while Viola Davis wore a pastel pink Posen gown accentuated with a necklace of diamonds and pearls. Two representatives of the matching category who stood out the most were Scarlett Johansson in green and Lupita Nyong’o in white. Colored stones and pearls were very popular at this year’s awards. Johansson was stunningly clad in green by Atelier Versace and adorned with a high-necked choker that was heavily beaded with green crystals. Her earrings were composed of brilliant-cut diamonds, green tourmalines, emeralds and aquamarines set in 18-karat pink gold.
Lupita Nyong’o’s choice to wear white was a stroke of genius. Not only did she strike the traditional classic chord by contrasting her dark skin color with the stark white gown, but she also displayed more than 6,000 natural and synthetic pearls in her Calvin Klein original gown.
