The awards season has finally ended in spectacular style with the 2016 Oscars. The glitz, the glamour and more importantly the pearl jewellery was out in force on Sunday in the LA sun. Our pearl award this year has to go to the winner of the Best Actress Statue – Brie Larson. Brie pulled off this stunning blue Gucci dress with ease and combined it with the mother of all accessories – a large pearl encrusted statement belt. Teamed with some pearl and diamond drop earrings and simple, elegant hair and make up, we think Brie was spot on!
Coming in a close second place was Olivia Wilde and her gorgeous Valentino Grecian outfit. The beautiful pleats and cut of this dress was saved from being slightly casual, again with her stunning accessories. From her elegant seed pearl and diamond choker to her pearl and diamond earrings, Olivia epitomized style even in her pearl clutch bag!
Other celebrities wearing pearls at the awards included Lisa Thompson who looked amazing in her pearl rope to collect the award for Best Production Design for Mad Max Fury Road. Best Supporting actress nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh was sporting some beautiful delicate pale pink pearl drop flower earrings, and the pearl jewelry didn’t stop there! Pearls also proved to be popular at the after parties with the likes of Liberty Ross and Anjelica Huston donning statement pearl earrings to the Vanity Fair party. But don’t take our word for it – who do you think was best dressed?
