White gold reigned supreme this year, with nary a yellow tone in sight. The cool tone was paired with white diamonds on looks from crawling, layered rings to statement chandelier earrings. Right on cue for spring, the color du jour for gowns walking the red carpet was a verdant variation of green. Rachel McAdam’s, dressed in a slinky viridian green dress, played up the cool tones of the gown with white diamond jewelry. Irish-American actress Saoirse Ronan went back to her roots with a near-emerald ensemble, paying homage to her homeland. Whether a full gown or a splash of green amidst glittering crystal, the resurgence of emerald is lush, Serpentine, and utterly serene.
Stars waxed positively bridal this season, with long, white gowns and sleek lines with feminine detailing such as open backs and pearl accessories. Transparent embroidery was seen on several of Hollywood’s leading ladies such as Priyanka Chopra, with the intricate vine work seen mirrored in accessories from drop earrings to climbing bracelets. Belle of the ball Alicia Vikander wore a dusty yellow dress, paired with a trend seen again and again this year —large, wreathed chandelier earrings in modern shapes.
Underwater inspiration was seen in the deep rainbow hues and blue gradations on the dresses of Oscar winner Brie Larson and actress Naomi Watts. Jewelry with pearls complimented the color tones on gowns, and pearls with deep gradations sat pretty on Brie’s waist. Sometimes, it’s not what you accessorize – but what you don’t. Plunging, naked necklines were a trend of their own with the main attraction being the addition of noteworthy earrings.
