Red Carpet Recap

After a year of loungewear and a resurgence of Crocs, it was a refreshing change to see modified red carpets come to life this awards season! While the photo lines flanked with cameramen from global media outlets gave way to home portrait studios and selfies plenty, Hollywood’s A-listers took the chance to bring back a return of glamour in full force.

As with awards seasons past, platinum was front and center, ready for its close-up! The world’s most precious metal could be found gracing the décolletage and earlobes of television and film stars. Platinum’s naturally white setting truly enhances the brilliance of diamonds and colored gemstones and perfectly complements the colorful couture gowns, trendy hairstyles, and beautiful makeup.

Classic diamond necklaces worn in new and interesting ways were definitely a trend spotted on several award-winning necks. Anya Taylor Joy, of The Queen’s Gambit fame, was stunning in a suite of white diamonds set in platinum from Tiffany & Co.

Zendaya took the #neckmess to a whole new level, pairing two platinum and diamond necklaces from Bulgari…worth a cool $6 million!
