The Golden Globes has just announced its 2014 nominations, which means awards season is just around the corner. While it’s always exciting to see which winners are announced, most of the excitement comes before the show on the red carpet. Looking back at last year’s best dressed, there is one thing that is abundantly clear – accessories make the look. With the right piece of jewelry or a luxury suit, a celebrity simply stands out from the crowd.
Julianne Moore – The Overlooked Jewelry
Julianne Moore always stuns the crowd and her dress was exceptionally beautiful on last year’s red carpet. While everyone was focusing on her black and white ensemble, others were targeting in on her beautiful accessories. Not only did she bring along a cute clutch purse, but she choose just the right earrings and bracelets to accent her entire look.
Bracelet: Brilliant gold bracelets adorned Julianne’s wrists and were the perfect match for her outfit. With a black and white dress, the gold shimmered off of her bracelets and added to the overall appeal even more.
Earrings: Diamond earrings were seen hanging from her ears as she smiled for the crowd. These earrings showed class and elegance that only Julianne can pull off. Want to pull off this look yourself? Princess Jewelers offers a stunning selection of diamond earrings similar to the ones Julianna wore on the red carpet.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Perfect Suit
Donning a suit that even Tailored Man would be proud of, Leo was able to impress the crowd like no other. With his appeal and charm, the suit might not have mattered much, but Leo took on a bold look that would be considered disastrous for a lesser-known name. Why was Leo able to pull off this look?
- · Undoubtedly, the suit worn was custom fit so that it fit him perfectly. Not a hair was out of place, nor were his sleeves an inch too long.
- · Leo kept it simple and wore a bowtie. There was no jewelry seen, which further added to this humble look.
While he certainly took the part of Great Gatsby to new heights, wearing a period suit was the perfect addition to the awards. It added to the true character he played and gained the praise of Esquire.
Purses Go a Long Way
While virtually every woman that walks the runway will have a purse, the style that is most commonly seen is the clutch. These purses bring the ability to carry a cell phone and a little touchup makeup to an event. Major designers such as Louis Vuitton, Prada and Gucci are the norm. The trick is that not any purse will do. The wearer must accessorize appropriately and bring a purse that is able to accent their outfit. For darker outfits, white, black with gold and patterned purses are best. For lighter outfits, black is usually the perfect fit as it will compliment a woman’s dress perfectly.
Every new season brings a brand new style. With mobile technology being at the forefront of the entertainment world, cell phones will be seen more often. While this may have been taboo in the past to bring on the red carpet, it is not far-fetched to expect more celebrities to start bringing their favorite accessories with them. Custom cases, like those found at The Case Studio, will likely fill the gap for celebrity moms who want to bring their family photos with them wherever they go.
Last year demonstrated a trend that is moving towards more bold looks that provide a splash of elegance. This should be even more prominent this year with jewelry being a major factor. Diamonds and platinum are extremely popular and will work perfectly to bring elegance back to the red carpet. Men’s watches, custom suits and even rings may be the accessories of choice for the male counterpart. Colored gemstones will also make a strong comeback and lend to the appeal of an event even further.
