The Oscars…it’s a show that’s all about the audience, and an event where you’ll be less likely to find faux pearls than faux pas…but, rather than focusing on the award-giving awkwardness that occurred, we’re here to shine a spotlight on the many fabulous adornments that decorated the attendees!
The 2017 Oscars were an excellent opportunity for fabricators of fashion to show off their wares to an audience of roughly 32.9 million prospective buyers; by simply tuning in, viewers were immediately exposed to an abundance of beautiful looks and how to wear them. Many of these fashions were tried-and-true staples (Dakota Johnson’s necklace was literally borrowed from a museum!) hearkening back to an “old hollywood” glamour. Many of the winsome wearers, however, chose to go another route with bold and edgy choices that explored the very latest frontiers in jewelry trends.
They may be a girl’s best friend, but there’s no reason that diamonds can’t look dreamy on men, too! In a characteristically bold look, Pharrell Williams embellished his Chanel wardrobe with a brooch in 18K white gold, diamonds, and cultured pearls. His long, luxurious necklaces especially evoke the classic, diamond-laden looks that Eve has crafted, such as her “Odalisque” or “Morning Run by the Lake” black-and-gray diamond necklaces.
Birds of a feather may flock together, but sometimes we mammals like to switch things up! Actress Saoirse Ronan played the matchmaking game with a pair of green and white earrings, not at all unlike Eve’s “Birds of Passage” earrings (which feature one white and one peacock-green South Seas pearl each!).
Isabelle Huppert wowed crowds with an Armani gown and a fitted earring cuff that traced the silhouette of her ear with shining gem-studded brilliance. A fresh and modern statement piece, this look bears resemblance to Eve’s “Lilith” earring from her “Garden of Eden” series. Also contoured to the outside of the ear, this piece features an 18 karat white gold design with a suite of shimmering diamonds sure to update any look.
