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 a plenty, Hollywood’s A-listers took the chance to bring back a return of glamour in full force.
Just 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 stars of television and film. Platinum’s naturally white setting truly enhances the brilliance of diamonds and colored gemstones, and perfectly complemented 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.
