Best Oscar Looks Of All Time – With Some Bling!
A highly awaited evening every year, the Academy Awards are the beating heart of the Hollywood Industry. As people from all over the globe tune in to watch them broadcasted live, everyone has eyes on two things: the awards and the glamorous clothing. While the list of “best dressed” comes out each year, the styles eventually become inspiration for the fashionistas at home.
This year, COVID-19 has turned us into actual “fashionistas at home”. Yet, being at home certainly doesn’t mean we can’t follow in the fashion footsteps of the leading Oscar ladies. It is time to sit back, and brush up on our style skills, with a hint of bling and the sparkle of jewels.
Julia Roberts – The 2001 Oscars
The Pretty Woman of our lives, Julia Roberts’ stunned in her Valentino monochrome strapless gown in the 2001 Oscars as she received the award for Erin Brockovich. A timeless dress, I still have goosebumps as I imagine a dress as simple and elegant as this could be turned into an evergreen fashion choice. Yet, what brought the gown to life was the dazzling bangle. Accentuating the wrist, the bangle matches with the white of the dress, and sparkles in the camera as Julia smiles for the picture.
Luckily, I found bangles as dazzling as this one in the C. Krishniah Chetty Collection to take the dresses I have to another level.
This classic platinum odd bangle would be a lovely enhancement for a simple dress. The best part? It is in a fusion of 2 hues; gold and silver. This means, this platinum beauty shall match with most attires!
On the other hand, if you want a minimalist bangle which also shows off your arms – it is time to bare it yet not bare it all with this net-styled classic gold odd bangle.
Michelle Williams – The 2006 Oscars
If someone could pull off a unique Vera Wang in such an elegant way, it is only Michelle Williams. As she made her entrance in the 2006 Academy Awards dressed in a bright canary yellow ensemble, what made her stand out was the gorgeous necklace, unmatched with the dress.
This gives us tips: when donning your favourite attire, matching may seem the easier way out. Yet, to appear your glamorous best, wear jewellery that is bold and beautiful.
If you’re wondering where to find such gorgeous and unique necklaces, the search ends at necklaces by C. Krishniah Chetty Jewellers.
For something that probably blends in well with your dress, the classic gold necklace of 22Kt Yellow Gold is a good choice. A small-lengthened necklace, it hangs well over the collarbone to accentuate your features.
Conversely, for someone like me who loves colours in her jewellery, the limited edition gold necklace with turquoise gemstones is just the thing to pair with solid-coloured dresses to bring all eyes to the jewel.
Helen Mirren – The 2018 Oscars
From Calendar Girls to Hitchcock, another stunning actress who showed us how a simple single-hued gown could turn into a symbol of elegance is Helen Mirren’s appearance in the 2018 Oscars. Pairing a gorgeous necklace adorned with blue gemstones to match her ensemble by Reem Acra, Helen certainly gives us some fashion tips.
For silhouette-tracing gowns, a wonderful way to level up the look is by going for a sparkling neck piece; one that blends in with the dress, yet stands out for its beauty and glamour.
When I began the search for a necklace similar to Helen’s, by heart stopped at this beauty: the Sprezzatura Diamond Necklace with gorgeous blue gemstones. With blue as my favourite colour, this is definitely a must-have for me.
For others who prefer lesser sparkle and don’t prefer wearing heavy jewellery, this classic diamond necklace makes for a good choice.
Lady Gaga – The 2019 Oscars
As we continue to hum Bad Romance, the entry of Lady Gaga at the Oscars is one of the most awaited ones – and she does not disappoint. Dressed in Alexander McQueen, she enters like the queen she is in an all-black ensemble with matching gloves, her white updo, and a breathtaking pendant necklace. What does the queen teach us? When in doubt – diamonds and pendants never let you down.
I found my take at Lady Gaga’s necklace in the C. Krishniah Chetty Collection: a classic diamond necklace with a pearl-styled chain and glowing green centerpiece.
Though Lady Gaga seemed to prefer a single-toned neckpiece, a person like me would probably match the gemstone with the dress to tone down the sparkle slightly – thus the choice of such a pendant necklace.
Janelle Monae – The 2020 Oscars
Dressed in Ralph Lauren, Janelle Monae graced the 2020 Oscars with a Star Wars-inspired look – truly standing out in the crowd. Pairing the glittery attire with minimum jewellery, she let her rings do all the talking. This explains just how important jewels are for our fingers.
A am a rings-woman. I love rings, period. Therefore, this look certainly struck a chord in my heart. If you are somewhat like me, you shall love these rings:
