5 Winning Jewelry Looks at 2016 Baftas
Accessories maketh the look and the stars at the Baftas proved it to be true.
It is award season frenzy and we need to catch our breath with the numerous designer looks on the (various) red carpets. While the stars enjoy the sunshine in Los Angeles, they brave the rain in London, all while decked out in designer gems. The contrasting weather conditions certainly don’t dampen the mood nor do the stars make any less of an effort. In fact we saw several looks that stole the show and even fell in love with several accessories on the red carpet.
First up is British actress Annabelle Wallis in a red Oscar De La Renta gown with Chopard accessories. Her outfit combined numerous collections that somehow seem to work seamlessly together. The scene-stealer was a stunning pair of 18-carat white gold earrings from the Maison’s Red Carpet Collection earrings, set with pear-shaped rubies and diamonds. Accompanying her ruby and diamond earrings was a white gold ring featuring round-shaped brilliant-cut diamonds and a round shaped brilliant-cut ruby, from the L’Heure du Diamant Collection. The final piece to her outfit was a white Fairmined gold ring, set with marquise-cut diamonds from the Maison’s Green Carpet Collection.
Red carpet favourite Cate Blanchett, swept onto the red carpet, in floral Alexander McQueen creation that had critics on the fence. Nonetheless, she ensured that the accessories left us in awe. The award winner shone bright with earrings and a cuff from the 2016 Tiffany Blue Book. Her dramatic earrings featured mixed-cut diamonds while the cuff was set with marquise and brilliant-cut diamonds. We are looking forward to her outfit at the Academy Awards since she seems to have the best picks of the Blue Book.
Next on our radar is Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. The Leading Actor nominee followed a ‘less-is-more’ strategy with her accessories, all from Chopard. Complementing her floral Burberry gown was a white gold necklace set with fancy colored sapphires, fancy colored briolette-cut sapphires, round-shaped rose-cut diamonds and pear-shaped rose-cut diamonds from the Chopard High Jewelry Collection. The second piece, also from the same collection, was a white and yellow gold ring with a yellow pear-shaped diamond and brilliant-cut diamonds.
Emilia Clarke a.k.a Khalessi was another stunner on the carpet. Adding a pop of color to her Victoria Beckham dress, she is certainly an actress to take note of, and her accessories were simple yet unforgettable. The Mother of Dragons selected platinum earrings and ring from Tiffany & Co. to complete her look. The diamond cluster earrings did not take the attention away from the dress or the actress but instead managed to enhance it. The ring features a 2.09-carat center diamond for that extra sparkle.
The last on our list, is Kate Winslet. Her Antonio Berardi fit her like a glove and showed us just how well a beautifully made black dress can outshine any other. She let her accessories do the talking, with Morning Dew chandelier earrings by David Morris and 16-carats worth of diamonds on her wrist by the same jeweler.
