Did you happen to watch the 92nd Academy Awards last night? How are we feeling about the jewelry looks from the red carpet?
Last night, we saw actors, directors, musicians, and others get together to celebrate the art of cinema. Parasite, a South Korean dark comedy thriller, took home Best Picture, which is HUGE considering it is the first foreign-language film to win. Parasite director, Bong Joon-ho, received the award for Best Director. Joaquin Pheonix scored big as the Best Actor for his performance in Joker, and Renée Zellweger as Best Actress for her role in Judy. Notably, Zack Gottsagen made history by being the first person with Down syndrome to present an award, and Joker composer Hildur Guðnadóttir is the first woman to win Best Original Score in two decades.
A few weeks ago, we saw BIG and BOLD looks come out of the GRAMMYs. Last night, in true Oscars fashion, celebs toned it down while keeping it classy. I saw a common theme last night – keep it simple! A lot of celebrities chose to leave their jewelry at home and focus on their clothing choices. That being said, there were some outliers who decided to rock some quintessential adornments.
Here are the hottest 2020 Oscars jewelry trends–
Chic Ear Candy
There were a lot of simplistic styles displayed on the red carpet. Most celebs opted for earrings to be their statement piece–in a subtle way. Brie Larson, Natalie Portman, and Sandra Oh keep it chill in trendy earrings.87219 87160 650183
Walk On the Wild Side
I can’t say that these jewelry looks were extremely daring, but given the overall vibe of the awards show, these celebrities stepped out of the box with some more interesting pieces. Zazie Beetz beamed in emerald fashion, Saoirse Ronan sparkled in some sizable gemstone rings, and Chelsea Winstanley was glowing in golden statement pieces!
Let’s Hear It for the Boys
On to what I believe is my favorite category… men’s jewelry styles! I may be biased because I love men’s jewelry in general (I may or may not wear a lot of my dad’s old jewelry), but there were a few stand-out celebs that encompassed the elegance of menswear jewelry. Brad Pitt wore a single yellow gold band, Mahershala Ali sported a simple pendant on his necklace, and Billy Porter flaunted a delicate pearl bracelet.
My honorable mention for the Oscars is Cynthia Erivo. She looked like an angel in her dress surrounded by all the diamonds. Sadly, my girl did not take home an Oscar, meaning she is not an EGOT winner… but there’s always next year.
