After more than a year of virtual red carpets and celebrity events hosted entirely via Zoom, there was enormous excitement this week as the 93rd Academy Awards took place live and in person.
The Oscars was carefully managed to ensure that not only was there a real ceremony for 2021, but there was nary a mask in sight – just like old times. In order to achieve this, the venue was moved from the Dolby Theater to the more spacious Union Station, and the 170 attendees had to undergo COVID tests prior to the big night to ensure they were virus-free.
Although it might not have been quite as big a party as pre-pandemic times, the sense of glee among the celebrities in attendance was clear for all to see. What’s more, the A-listers apparently all decided to dress up like they were ‘out’ out, because Hollywood glamour was the order of the evening.
Nearly everyone was pictured wearing show-stopping diamond jewellery, whether that was in the form of chandelier earrings or sparkling necklaces and bracelets.
Andra Day stood out in her dazzling yellow and white diamond earrings and stacked cocktail rings, all of which were from Tiffany & Co, while Zendaya also went for a canary-coloured diamond on her pendant from Bulgari.
Viola Davis, Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Kirby all sparkled in traditional white diamonds, with other notable looks coming from Reese Witherspoon and Glenn Close.
And the shimmering gemstones weren’t just for the ladies either, with Best Supporting Actor winner Daniel Kaluuya snapped wearing a chic Cartier necklace over his black T-shirt.
We definitely can’t blame Tinseltown’s finest for going all-out glam at this year’s Oscars, as it’s what we’ll be doing at the first sign of a formal event this spring and summer.
In the meantime, why wait if you’ve been inspired by these red carpet looks? We might only be able to meet up in outdoor spaces, but that doesn’t mean you can’t host a Hollywood-style garden party complete with posh frocks and sparkly costume jewellery.
We’ve got loads of diamante earrings here at Majique that will have you red carpet ready, including these Art Deco-style Chandelier Crystal Stone Tassel Drop Earrings and these that have yellow gold-toned edging around a central stone.
We also love these that are a straight drop and a dead ringer for some we saw Laura Dern wearing.
Go on – get your Oscars on this season!
