The Best of Fineries from the Oscars Evening, 2017
This Oscars, it was about who turned the heads and who got the oohs and has, like it was in all the past years. Though the Academy Awards is a celebration of creative accomplishment and artistic genius, the red carpet fashion has engulfed a good share of the show, a little more each year. Like the yestery years, the Oscars evening 2017 was as glamorous as any. Celebs arrived in their best rides, sporting the prettiest dresses and priciest diamond jewels as shutterbugs snap away capturing them from all perspectives. And as the bottle is uncorked, glamor getting flowing offering the guests a shot of seductive fame and glory. This year was no different except for new faces and fineries catching the eye.
Speaking particularly of jewelry, we already have in place some of our favorites from the evening.
At the very top of the list is Ruth Negga with her million dollar suite of Irene Neuwirth Gemfields rubies. Negga walked the red carpet with matching ruby jewelries, a headpiece that alone had 146.16 carats of Mozambican rubies and a pair of signature earrings.
Negga’s ruby razzle-dazzle is closely followed by Jessica Biel’s flashy Tiffany & Co. gold-and-diamond collar. One of its kind, Biel sported this elaborate collar with a jaw-dropping metallic gown. Her collar contains 200 baguette sparklers with 350 gold fronds that tail the choker of her neckpiece. A truly inspiring piece of work!
Pharrel Williams’s Chanel brooch made statements too among all other signature pieces. He wore it on the lapel of his fine panther black suit. The brooch from the house of Chanel was a combination of diamonds and pearls. Curved in 18K white gold, the piece was generously inlaid with cultured pearls and diamonds which caught both the light and the eyes all evening.
Another ravishing Hollywood beauty known to make heads turn everywhere she went with her very remarkable taste in jewelry made an expected entry in this list. Charlize Theron shone in her diamond chandelier earrings and sexy Dior metallic gown in the Oscars this year. From the Garden of Kalahari Collection, her Chopard earrings had a total of 59.9 carats of diamonds.
Next in line is Taraji P. Henson who left the crowd bemused with her 103 carat diamond neckpiece. One from the Nirav Modi Luminance collection, this statement piece has a total of 103 diamonds. Her emerald ring also caught a lot of attention which was another from Modi’s Evergreen Emerald Ring range. Her ring was worth 8 carats alone.
Actor Kirsten Dunst appeared in the Oscars in her usual subtle and sublime style. She wore a simple, yet very artistic Niwaka diamond neckpiece and a pair of massive diamond ear studs that evening. Needless to say, she sizzled in them.
Dakota Johnson’s gaudy neckpiece and collared Gucci gown caught everybody’s attention. The Cartier yellow-gold neckpiece featured very many diamonds and a design that is reminiscent of the jewelries of past eras. Her Victorian gold gown matched with her skin while the neckpiece stood out from its bling background.
