MIchael O'Connor & the Platinum Guild Glitter with Gems for the Golden Globes!!

At Golden Globes — as with any major awards show– the Platinum Guild and jewelry expert and stylist Michael O’Connor create an amazing suite full of jewelry that is so full of amazing gems that one almost needs sunglasses (or serious self-restraint) from the sparkling bling. This year was no different as there was so much to see at the Palihouse hotel in West Hollywood, a lower-key but larger area with some killer views (and bar) .
However the draw for the suite typically is celebrities, stylists and press to see the jewelry and more particularly to get the input of stylist Michael O’Connor about what works with specific awards show outfits.
