This year’s 92nd Academy Awards brought out the stars in full red carpet glamour. The gowns and tuxedos were a feast for the eyes but the jewellery was an even bigger show stopper. We’ve narrowed down our top 10 Looks from the Oscars.
1. Regina King in Harry Winston
The ever elegant Watchmen star looked radiant in a blush Versace gown with silver detailing on the bodice and a flowing train. She paired her look with nearly 60 combined carats of diamonds in Harry Winston pieces, which included the jaw-dropping Draperie diamond bracelet and diamond rings.
2. Greta Gerwig
The “Little Women” Director impressed in a beautiful, rich green Dior gown with accented green-toned Bulgari necklace, earrings and ring (comprising more than 96 carats of emeralds and diamonds).
3. Janelle Monáe in Forevermark
Singer Janelle Monáe opened the Oscars with Billy Porter but her red carpet look was a hard act to follow. She graced the carpet in a custom Ralph Lauren hooded gown studded with 160,000 Swarovski crystals. The stunning gown took 600 hours to complete but that’s not all, Janelle accessorized her gown with black reverse French manicure lined with tiny jewels, an incredible 18k white gold Lace of Light diamond choker (36.54 cts.) Diamond studs (6.36 cts.) and rings set with nearly 20 cts. of diamonds.
4. Elton John
The legend looked ever unique and glamorous in signature bejeweled tinted glasses, a deep purple satin jacket with a jewel lined collar and an impressive Theo Fennell rocket brooch. He certainly brought the wow factor and furthermore, he won Best Original Song for the second time in his career for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” from Rocketman. “Wow, this doesn’t suck,” said co-writer Bernie Taupin as he and Sir Elton John stepped onstage to accept their Oscar.
5. Saoirse Ronan
The best actress, nominee for her role in Little Women wore a plunging avant-garde Gucci gown with black-and-white on top featuring a peplum detail at the waist and a periwinkle-coloured skirt. She paired the look with gorgeous Gucci high jewellery chandelier earrings with white gold, spinel and diamonds; as well as rings with white gold, rubellite, pink sapphires, diamonds and a pink tourmaline; and a white gold brooch featuring tsavorite and diamonds.
6. Anthony Ramos
The Hamilton star made it onto a few “Best Dressed” lists this year. He wore a sleek Dolce & Gabbana suit on the red carpet but it was his oversized medieval-looking neck adornment that got most of the attention. The bold statement piece was encrusted with multi-coloured precious stones with Monogram type letters hanging near the front. Perhaps he borrowed it from a knight in shining armour but it worked!
7. Zazie Beetz
The Joker star joked that she was “sewn into” her black sequined two-piece Thom Browne set. The ensemble featured a strapless corset with fringed hem and slim-fit midi skirt. She accessorized her look with two Bulgari high jewellery necklaces including an emerald-accented “Divas’ Dream” choker, earrings and two rings, featured 120 carats worth of diamonds in total.
8. Billie Eilish
The singer, who confirmed she will be singing the theme song for the new James Bond movie, No Time to Die, made a bold statement on the red carpet in a head-to-toe Chanel ensemble and fine jewellery. She paired her oversized Chanel suit with matching ribbon hairpiece and pin, brooches, earrings and chokers. In case you missed it, Billie Eilish likes everything Chanel. A lot.
9. Gal Gadot in Tiffany & Co.
The Wonder Woman star looked like a princess in a Givenchy spring ’20 haute couture gown. Designed by Clare Waight Keller, the dress featured a high-necked lace top with a flowing ballet pink skirt. She wore her Tiffany & Co. Clara platinum necklace (set with more than 65 carats of diamonds and priced at more than $2 million) over-top her flared lace mock-turtleneck. She also wore platinum Tiffany diamond earrings with more than 6 cts. t.w. of diamonds and a platinum ring with a rectangular modified brilliant diamond weighing more than 9 carats.
10. Scarlett Johansson in Forevermark
Double nominee (for best actress and best supporting actress) looked glamorous and dripping in jewels in a custom shimmery silver satin Oscar de la Renta gown with a mesh bodice featuring draped fabric.
