Last night, the stars of the film world gathered in Hollywood for the Academy Awards, and as usual, there was plenty of glittering jewelry on display. Here are some of my favorite jewels worn to last night’s Oscars ceremony!
Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) wore diamonds from De Beers to accept the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
Rita Moreno (West Side Story) who won an Oscar for the same role back in 1962, brought fun to the red carpet with a feathered hat (recently worn on the cover of Town & Country) and a pair of striped earrings from Verdura.
Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter) wore Chopard diamonds for the ceremony.
Presenter Jennifer Garner wore innovative modern jewels from Nikos Koulis.
Presenter Mila Kunis wore a stunning pair of leafy diamond earrings.
Paulette Washington, wife of nominee Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of Macbeth), wore a gorgeous pair of hoop earrings set with orange gemstones.
Marlee Matlin (CODA) wore a fascinating suite of jewels from Briony Raymond.
Catriona Balfe (Belfast) wore gorgeous diamond jewels from Van Cleef & Arpels.
Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos) sparkled in jewels from Harry Winston.
Best Actress Oscar winner Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) wore a dazzling gown and lovely jewels, all by Gucci, for the ceremony.
Queen Latifah wore a classic pair of diamond laurel hoop earrings from Chopard.
Zoe Kravitz was ultra elegant in a necklace and earrings from Kwiat Diamonds.
One of my favorite jewelry looks of all was worn by the musician H.E.R. (winner of last year’s Best Original Song Oscar). She wore an incredible diamond and emerald necklace, plus matching emerald earrings, from Chopard.
And I also really loved the classic strand of pearls and diamond and pearl earrings worn by Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann, winner of an honorary Academy Award this year.
Lady Gaga (House of Gucci) walked the red carpet at the annual Elton John viewing party before popping over to the ceremony to present the Best Picture Oscar with Liza Minelli. I know I’m not the only one who did a double take when I saw her Tiffany & Co. necklace. (She changed into a tuxedo for the ceremony, but she wore the same necklace as an accessory with both outfits.) It sure does look a lot like Princess Grace’s Diamond Festoon Necklace from Cartier, doesn’t it? Surely a deliberate homage?
