Academy Award nominee for Best Actress in “The Wrestler”, Marisa Tomei made a dazzling appearance at the 81st Annual Academy Awards in Van Cleef & Arpels. Ms. Tomei won an Oscar in the same category for her role in 1992’s “My Cousin Vinny”, so this return visit was made even more dramatic by her choice of gown and also jewelry.
