As predicted, the 2015 Golden Globes delivered some jaw-dropping jewelry moments. The evening kicked off with a bang when Liev Schreiber posted a photo on Twitter of himself and Naomi Watts looking beyond radiant in what has become her signature Bulgari Serpenti diamond necklace. After that auspicious start, stars walked the red carpet in countless carats of gems. There were trend pieces, classic jewels, and major statements. I picked a few of my favorites ranging from sensational to sweet styles. Take a look below for the details.
The Into the Woods star (pictured above) was apparently suffering from the flu on Sunday but still sparkled plenty in gigantic Lorraine Schwartz floral diamond pendant earrings and a matching bracelet accented with Paraiba tourmalines. The rare blue-green gemstones that look as though they are lit from within matched Blunt’s blue eyes and added a splash of color to her white Michael Kors gown.
Much has been made of the fact that Watt’s has worn the Bulgari diamond necklace she donned for the Globes several times. I think the repeat appearances make Watts look like she owns it. Owns in the sense that she tosses on the treasure featuring more than 77 carats of diamonds as easily as a pair of jeans. Her easy-breezy attitude with the masterwork paired with the sunshine yellow Gucci dress was the picture of modern Hollywood glamour.
The Best Actress winner also won kudos for her amazing metallic ensemble that was in sync with the hottest red-carpet trend. Moore’s custom-made Givenchy gown was not only covered in silver sequins it also had feathers from her knees down to a train. Big diamond cluster earrings set with pear shape stones, a stack of diamond bracelets and not one, two but three diamond eternity bands all from Chopard took the flash factor even higher.
This boho beauty was at her best on Sunday night with her tossled blonde bob, beaded Miu Miu dress, and Tiffany diamonds galore. The American jeweler’s Jazz four-square diamond and platinum drops swung from her ears. On one wrist she wore a sweet diamond and platinum bow bangle and on the other a diamond and white gold bangle. An oval fancy vivid yellow diamond and platinum ring worth over half-a-million dollars was the pièce de résistance. The deluxe eclectic mix made the look totally eye-catching.
Kendrick showed everyone just how a 21st century Cinderella might dress for the Golden Globes. The actress who portrays the fabled character in Into the Woods was breathtaking in a Monique Lhuillier blush pink gown with red accents. Her charming Fred Leighton ruby and pendant earrings picked up on the highlight color.
Mrs. Clooney proved she was beyond fashion savvy during her weekend wedding over the summer in Venice. Well, now we know she intuitively seems to understand red carpet glamour as well. While she chose to wear her hair down she selected a pair of Harry Winston diamond earrings that could be seen clearly through her long tresses. The Cascading Deel Diamond Drops had almost 30-carats of stones. They matched the throwback mood of her white gloves and black Dior gown to perfection.
Universally praised as one of the best-dressed stars on the red carpet, Williams looked elegant as can be in a scarlet Armani Privé custom design with lots of texture and detail. She echoed the fabric in the dress with one stunning Cartier Maillon Panthère Bracelet made of diamonds and white gold twisted at the center. It was just the right accent for her bold ball gown.
In their now famous “Who Would You Rather” bit in the opening monologue, Fey said one of the reasons her friendship with Poehler had lasted so long was because they had different taste in men. The funny ladies also have very different and equally stunning styles. Fey was classically glam in a beaded white and black Antonio Berardi gown highlighted with vintage diamond jewels by Fred Leighton. Poehler added some edge to her bright purple Stella McCartney dress with a labrodite and diamond statement necklace and piles of colorful gemset bracelets on both arms all by Irene Neuwirth.
