DID YOU EVER SEE so many magnificent ruffled gowns as were on view at the Oscars?  And, of course, the accessories were spectacular, jewelry from the finest and most extravagant houses in the world. We would like to have seen more jewelry, we admit, but the emphasis that was put on the pieces worn by various actresses was good, if a bit on the minimalist side. 

   –But, in fairness, let’s remember:  The Oscars are always focused on dresses – long, glamorous, body revealing, color-inspiring dresses.  Oscars 82 was no different. 

 

Glittery golds, bold colors, intense hues and plenty of pastels excited the Big Screen runways.  There was no small amount of intense color (especially red, a la that back ruffled phenomenon worn by Up in the Air star and best-supporting actress nominee Vera Farmiga).  One early morning paper referred to her Marchesa gown as bright fuchsia.  “It reminded me of a peony in bloom,” Farmiga said.  “I am just so sick of winter.” 

   –The problem is:  where were her jewels?  All she wore were tiny little diamond earrings, but they, at least, did stand out against her pulled back coif and smooth, bare shoulders. 

 

Pinks and pale grays and light purples and blues were riveting.  Many had a watercolor appeal, like Rachel McAdams’ Elie Saab dress filled with splashes of muted pastels and looking like an impressionistic French canvas.  The crisscross bodice followed the diagonal line popularity evident in fashion this year.  McAdams wore lovely, long drop earrings.

 

                                                    Demi Moore

 

Perhaps my favorite dress of the evening was worn by Demi Moore – an Atelier Versace peachy design with tight bodice and fabulously ruffled skirt.  With it, she wore a stunning diamond bracelet and carried a glittery silver evening clutch bag.  Just right!

 

Gabourney Sidibe proved once again that you don’t have to be tall and skinny to look terrific.  The loveable new star (the teen in Precious) and best female lead winner wore a vibrant blue off-the-shoulder dress with stunning detail and soft, flattering fit.  With it, she wore a big cocktail ring, a pretty diamond bracelet, and sparkling pave diamond drop pendant earrings.  Very classy!

 

LOOKING HOT WITH AN OSCARS’ RICHNESS ISN’T DIFFICULT IF YOU KNOW HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR OUTFIT.  TRY THESE: 

 

 

 

 

 

                         Tiny Charms and Diamond Earrings

 

Carey Mulligan was an exercise in handsome trendy jewelry ideas, with her pretty Prada dress embellished with silvery spoons, scissors, and other tiny tools. The best-actress nominee wore it with a delicate chain and gemstone choker and shoulder-dusting diamond cluster drop earrings. 

 

Mo’Nique, who took the Oscar for Best Supporting actress in Precious, wore a dusty blue dress with a white floral hair accessory and classic diamond button earrings with a small circle-cut diamond drop.  She “humbled” the audience, as one critic put it, by reminding them that the awards can be about “performance and not the politics.”

 

Cameron Diaz, together with Steve Carell, presented the Oscar for best animated feature (Up in the Air).  Ashe wore a heavily embellished dress with gemstones and other glitter-wear and capped it all off with large diamond hoop earrings.

 

Jennifer Lopez wore an iridescent pink organza dress by Georgio Armani and accessorized it with a dazzling tennis bracelet from Cartier, a knockout diamond ring, and small button diamond earrings.  The Last Station’s Helen Mirren was also here looking surprisingly young in a tight shimmery skimmer of a dress, worn with a jeweler’s choker-delight, a little tennis bracelet, and carrying a gemstone-covered evening bag. 

 

The big necklace standout at the Oscars was worn by Kate Winslet, a fabulous diamond statement necklace with center pendant drop from Tiffany.  She wore it with a pale silvery dress from Yves Saint Laurent.  As one reviewer put it, “She is so stunning, she could wear a paper bag and make it look good.”
