After last night’s snoozefest (both in terms of show production and fashion and accessorizing) I came to the conclusion that celebs are more afraid of being on a worst dressed list than they are willing to take chances and go for a look that’s memorable for all the right reasons. In other words, too many stylists spoil the broth. Or, in the case of co-host Anne Hathaway, stylist Rachel Zoe worked exclusively with Tiffany jewels, many from the company’s archives. Did you really notice any of them? I know I didn’t.
Helen Mirren usually is the one celeb I feel I can count on to show up at events looking polished and perfectly turned out but she also literally missed the mark with a Cartier pendant necklace whose end point fell too low on her dress.
Loved the Tiffany ruby tassel earrings worn by Natalie Portman; I just wish she had worn a delicate pendant necklace or bold ruby cuffs to match.
And Nicole Kidman DID wear a necklace, over 150 carats of vintage diamonds from Fred Leighton. Now, if only someone could have coordinated all those earrings, necklaces and the profusion of diamond bracelets that seemed like an afterthought (There! I’m accessorized!) we might have had a look going on.
