The Oscar fever is on!!! Everyone nominated will be having butterflies in the stomach and they are also trying to make the night most memorable by wearing their best dress and jewelry (All eyes will be on them). We all know Oscars are the BIGGEST NIGHT in Hollywood and it is not just about Big Films! Big Stars!! It is also about BIG FASHION & JEWELRY!!!
This is not the first red carpet event of the year! We already have the Golden Globes, SAG Awards BAFTA Awards etc where there was a long parade of women in glamorous gowns and expensive jewelry starting in January but the Oscars is the GRAND FINALE. So, as we all know the best is always saved for last so the night is definitely going to be spectacular!!!
The de rigueur as always is going to be the colorful gowns that show some skin and classical looks from Hollywood's Golden Age. Some usual show stoppers like Angelina Jolie will share the stage with new stars like Rooney Mara and Viola Davis.
Ask a designer and they will say just like designer Marc Bouwer that The Oscars are the biggest fashion show on the planet. It is because this event is relayed live and is seen by numerous people across the globe. Even the after the event is over it continues to be a part of discussion for some time to come with the snapshots of the red carpet jewelry and fashion appearing in various newspapers, magazines and now with technical advancement even on the Web and Mobile phones.
As for Bouwer’s Oscar predictions it is going to be white ivory and even bright colors. While designer David Meister feels that bright colors will also be there as they may look more eye-catching in the photographs. But on the whole it is going to be a night where everyone wants to look beautiful, pretty and sexy.
A jewelry expert and stylist, Michael O’Connor says that one of the main trends that we are expected to see in this edition of Oscars is bold colored gemstones. This trend has been seen throughout the award season red carpets. Even in the Nineties gemstone jewelry was very popular and the craze for these colored gems only increased with bigger diamonds on the red carpet. It is expected that the Tanzanite and diamond earrings as well as sapphire earrings may be a popular choice of the celebrities.
The another prominent jewelry style that is going to be seen at the event is statement mega drop earrings, which is definitely the go-to trend for this year and is popping up everywhere. Expect these earrings to be large and practically touch the collarbone.
As for the wrist again there will be statement cuffs. Vintage designs with chunky cuff styles and geometric shapes will be popular. An interesting trend we might want to notice is diamond accented watches. Watches just aren’t for men anymore and the latest pieces for women will contain diamonds and delicate straps.
We shouldn’t be seeing as many traditional square cufflinks. The trend now is for interesting patterns in different contemporary metals such as black titanium.
