StyleLab & Michael O’Connor Get Celebs Sparkling for Oscars Red Carpet!
StyleLab’s Jewelry Suite for the Academy Awards was the hot spot for celebrities seeking to get unique jewelry to wear on the red carpet and the brands featured in the suite including the American Gem Trade Association Collection, Dena Kemp, IDH Titanium, and Farah Khan, among others. From platinum and diamonds to pearls and zultanite, over 200 pieces worth $20 million dollars were available for loan.
Celebrity stylist Michael O’Connor helped guests make their jewelry selection.
“The hottest trends on the red carpet are colored gemstones and bolder pieces, such as statement earrings or large diamond cuffs,” says O’Connor. “Celebrities are placing emphasis on their jewelry choices to ensure a greater contrast between gown color and gemstones, and also to guarantee that their jewelry will complement their gown’s embellishments.”
Here are a few select items that were worn on Oscar’s red carpet or at the after-parties.
