Award season swings into high gear in Hollywood on Sunday night with the 2015 Golden Globes. While the spirit of the event is much more relaxed than the Oscars in February—cocktails are served and the hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler keep the mood light and lively—the glamour factor promises to be sky high. Actresses are guaranteed to wear some of the most stunning jewelry we see on the red carpet all year. Take a look below for my predictions about the sparkle that will turn up on six nominated women.
Julianne MooreThis leading lady is not only a double Golden Globe nominee for her roles in the drama Still Alice and the comedy Map of Stars she is also equal parts fashionista and jewelista. Translation: Her gowns and jewels are always sensational. As for what jewelry designer she will wear on a night when she is an odds of favorite to win, its between Bulgari and Chopard. The actress appeared in an unforgettable series of Bulgari ads in 2010 and has worn the Italian jeweler’s treasures to big events for many years. More recently, however, in Cannes last summer she shone in several stunners from Chopard (above). The Swiss jeweler has a history of dressing Best Actress winners and they are most certainly trying to provide Moore with just the right jewel.
The Wild actress is a bit of a wildcard when it comes to her jewelry choice. In Witherspoon’s more casual appearances, she often wears her favorite gold link necklace from Irene Neuwirth or earrings by Dana Rebecca. For the premiere of Wild she donned a pair of extraordinary sapphire and diamond pendant earrings from Harry Winston (above). Over the years the actress has also worn Fred Leighton and Cartier on the red carpet. It’s anyone’s guess what she will choose on Sunday night.
The Best Actress nomination for Aniston’s dramatic turn in Cake marks the first time one of her films has been up for a big award. Yet we don’t feel InStyle’s cover girl is going to change her winning signature easy breezy red-carpet style of a flowing gown and effortless jewelry. For years she has looked dazzling in diamonds from Fred Leighton (pictured above, at the 2013 Oscars). I expect the sparkle to be high-watt vintage pieces from Leighton on Sunday.
At once adorable and a bit of a bombshell, the Into the Woods actress has been consistently magnificent on the red carpet. Her formula for success includes gowns with a little texture, cutout or some surprise, flawless hair and makeup, finished off by jewelry from Lorraine Schwartz. Blunt doesn't choose the over-the-top pieces the jewelry designer is famous for putting on the likes of Beyoncé, Heidi Klum, and Sofia Vergara. Instead she goes for lower key designs that blend with her gowns yet still make a statement. At the Gotham Awards (above) she layered a golden mesh necklace with a strand of gold pearls both by Lorraine Schwartz. I am sure Blunt will choose something beautiful from Schwartz for the Globes.
Chastain likes a bold bauble and carries them off to perfection. The Most Violent Year nominee made a memorable appearance in one of Elizabeth Taylor’s treasures from the Bulgari archives at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. She put on an impressive pair of Fred Leighton carved emerald and diamond earrings for the premiere of her movie Interstellar (above). Yet she has been wearing Piaget jewels the most consistently. At the National Board of Review this week she wore a ginormous ring from the jeweler making them the odds on favorite for her Golden Globes appearance.
Since the October premiere of the Imitation Game in London, Knightley’s appearances have been all about modern elegance. The star who is expecting her first child has chosen lovely and romantic dresses and gowns accessorized with diamond earrings. An English jeweler named David Morris created the glorious chandelier earrings (above) Knightley wore to the premiere in October. Since her film is a British thriller, I feel the English actress might choose something from Morris as a source of national pride for her walk down the red carpet.
