Ah the Academy Awards, a night of glitz and glamour like no other! Year after year we wait eagerly to see what fashion trends the Oscars red carpet will bring and this year was no different. We were left in awe as usual as the celebrity attendees brought their A-game to the show in the form of shimmering dresses and glistening jewels. The stars were certainly shining on Sunday 4th March in all things metallic and sparkly, keep reading to see who’s style we loved most and where you can shop it without denting your savings!
Drop it Like it’s Hot
While the 2018 Oscars outfits were bright and colourful, when it came to jewels, diamonds and white metals were the clear favourite amongst the A-listers, with a reoccurring 1920s art deco theme popping up as eye-catching drop earrings.
Nicole Kidman had all eyes on her on the red carpet and for good reason too. Kidman made sure she stood out from the crowd in a sharply tailored Armani Prive gown which she accessorised perfectly with a pair of 23.52 carat diamond chandelier earrings.
Sticking to the same 1920s-inspired statement earring trend was popular US singer Mary J Blige. Blige looked radiant in her dazzling pearl-embellished white Atelier Versace gown which she accessorised with a pair of 12.28 carat diamond drop earrings.
If you love these jewellery looks as much as we do, but dislike the hefty price tag, our Great Gatsby Earrings are the perfect choice for you. And the best part? They’re only £15.95! Inspired by the lavish opulence of Gatsby’s parties, these silver coloured diamante drop earrings are a great way to add a finishing touch to any look.
Get Out star Allison Williams also chose to rock a pair of eye-catching 16.03 carat diamond drop earrings with her gorgeous gown on Sunday. While diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, they’re also just a little bit expensive for those of us who aren’t movie stars. We recommend our dazzling Fitzgerald Drop Earrings for only £12.95 instead. We guarantee these beauties will have you feeling like an A-lister without burning through your budget.
Let’s not forget the beautiful Sandra Bullock who looked like a bronze goddess in a pair of 25 carat champagne diamond drop earrings. If you’ve been looking for a unique style like this, stop your search, we have what you’re after. Our Nova Drop Earrings are made with bronze coloured jewels which are embellished into an angel wing design to give your outfits a stunning accent for only £7.95!
Stunting in Studs
While drop earrings may have been a favourite for some of the ladies that graced the Oscars 2018 red carpet, others chose to dazzle in a pair of statement studs and we love, love, love these next looks!
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot blew us away with her Twenties-inspired Givenchy gown, but that’s not what we were focused on. She kept her look simple but elegant with a pair of stunning diamond stud earrings – which seemed a little familiar to us. Our Carraway Stud Earrings are a flawless dupe for only £7.95! Copy her look without breaking the bank with this perfect pair. A charming example of how less is sometimes more, these silver coloured diamante stud earrings are a definite jewellery box essential!
Amongst the list of red carpet stunners in studs was Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o who matched her head-turning black and gold Versace gown with a pair of graphic diamond stud earrings. We recommend our Darling Daisy Studs to anyone wanting to steal Lupita’s red carpet style. At £10.95, these silver coloured diamante floral studs are a fabulous way to add some sparkle to your daily outfits while sticking to a budget!
Wondering what 10 carat diamond stud earrings look like? Vanessa Bryant modelled a pair on the Oscars 2018 red carpet and proved that simplicity goes a long way. We were reminded of our own Cherie Stud Earrings. A Jasmine Harper favourite, these stunning silver coloured diamante earrings radiate elegance at only £8.95.
Earrings Weren’t the Only Stars
While earrings were a popular accessory choice at the Academy Awards, necklaces and bracelets also featured as some of this year’s most show-stopping pieces.
Black Panther favourite and Walking Dead actress Danai Gurira was among one of the A-listers who chose to forego earrings altogether and capture our attention with a glamorous diamond choker necklace instead – verifying that the choker trend is still reigning strong this year. If you’re a fan of this style, our Athena Choker Necklace was made for you. This rose gold coloured diamante necklace is an effortlessly chic piece that adds an idyllic touch of sparkle to all ensembles for only £12.95!
One of our favourite looks of the night was Jennifer Lawrence’s magical metallic Dior number. She kept her accessories very minimal but one item did catch our eye… her 18 carat arm candy! Also donning the same art deco style bracelet was Ashley Judd. Both of these beauties instantly had us thinking about our very own Beaux Bracelet from the Jasmine Harper Art Deco Collection. This gorgeous silver coloured bracelet is embedded with diamantes which are paired with a bold geometric design that is sure to have you feeling like a star for only £14.95!
