The evening of Sunday, 4th March, stood witness to the grand 90th Academy Awards held in Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles. From humor, political statements and inspiring speeches to a fabulous Jet Ski moment; this eventful night was packed with entertainment and much more. Along with the prestigious award winners and glitzy evening ensembles, beautiful jewelry pieces made the night even more vibrant.
From the many that grabbed eyeballs with their striking appearances, here are five looks that simply took our breath away.
1. Gal Gadot
Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot was a vision of beauty in Givenchy’s haute-couture dress and minimalistic make-up. The pretty actress, however, had all of us floored with her stunning aquamarine and diamond drop necklace. Crafted in platinum, it featured 17 aquamarines weighing a total of 61 carats, along with more than 1,000 diamonds. The 27-carat aquamarine drop, especially, was spectacular. A perfect choice, considering aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
2. Emily Blunt
Emily Blunt was dressed in an aqua-toned haute-couture gown and mesmerized us with her impeccable red carpet style. Crafted in titanium, her earrings featuring pear-shaped aquamarines and diamonds were a definite highlight of the ensemble. Adding to her royal look were two gorgeous rings crafted in white gold. One of them again showcased the classic combination of aquamarine and diamonds, while the other was embellished with a pear-shaped aquamarine, diamonds, tanzanites and an amethyst.
3. Helen Mirren
Very few justify the term ‘aging gracefully’ the way Helen Mirren does. On the Oscar’s red carpet, the star wowed everyone in a simple and elegant blue outfit. She teamed her form-fitting gown with a spectacular necklace and earrings featuring cushion-cut sapphires and diamonds.
4. Emma Stone
Who can take their eyes off the very beautiful Emma Stone? We surely cannot! The La La Land actress rocked the Oscar’s night with a satin Louis Vuitton tuxedo. Her power-packed appearance was enhanced by earrings adorned with intense red garnets and diamonds exquisitely designed in white gold. The Mandarin garnets weighing more than 11 carats perfectly complemented the hue of her tux.
5. Danai Gurira
Seen in the blockbuster movie Black Panther, Danai Gurira sure knows how to keep all eyes on her. Famous for her recent powerful on-screen performance, the American actress displayed her wonderful choices on the Oscar’s red carpet as well. Wearing a strapless silk wool column gown, she was an epitome of elegance. Elevating her appearance was a stunning choker that featured around 676 diamonds. Danai’s eye-catching hair art further took her look to a whole new level.
These amazing actresses made sure that their presence did not go unnoticed at the star-studded Oscar’s night. Celebrities like Meryl Streep and Ashley Judd also graced the red carpet and unquestionably made the event even more glamorous. At the end of it all, the 90th Academy Awards has given the world some serious style and jewelry inspirations.
