What did YOU wear to the 2014 Oscars?
Didn’t go to the 2014 Oscars? So you stayed home and watched comfortably from your living room couch, just like me. I don’t know about you but this year was the first year I really wanted to see the Oscars, starting with the Red Carpet. Not because I saw all the great movies or knew who was expected to win but because I suddenly had a different interest in looking at fashion and jewelry worn by these talented, famous women.
It’s interesting when a twist or turn in your life awakens an interest. As a jewelry designer, specializing in beads and semi-precious stones, I knew I wasn’t going to see anyone wearing beaded necklaces at the Oscars, but I did see some parallels to what we create. Stars seem to show up in either delicate bling designs or statement pieces. Exactly what we experience at our craft shows. Huge gemstone drop earrings was definitely in and lots of diamond bling was seen on wrists . Big and Bold Statement Jewelry was the ticket. I had fun watching and observing.
The Good And Bad Lists
I had my opinions who looked great in their fashionable gowns and who was headed for the X list. To my surprise, the good and bad lists varied from one reviewer to another – again like real life. A few stars were found on both best and worst dressed lists; Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Bette Midler and Jennifer Garner, to name a few.
The two outstanding stars I favored as did many reviewers were; Cate Blanchett in a romantic Armani Prive cap-sleeve dress featuring Swarovski-accented flowers and a tulle skirt
and Lupita Nyong’o accepting the award for best supporting actress wearing Fred Leighton diamonds and gold from head to fingers.
Even though the 2014 Oscar event has passed, Oscar fashion and jewelry is never old news, so let’s take a look at historical fashions.
