2011 Oscar Jewelry: Afterthoughts and After Parties

Who can’t get enough Oscar night jewelry gawking? Need a cure for your haute couture hangover? That’s what I thought, you diamond-starved looky-loos!

The day after the Oscar jewelry bling-fest always brings with it the realization that A: I missed a few important jewels in my Oscar Night jewelry roundup and B: the after parties are where the real bauble action is (where goes Joan Collins so goes the carat count).
Elton John in Chopard

So here are a few key jewelry after thoughts from the red carpet proper that I didn’t inlcude in my Oscar Top Ten list last night – and a host of great celebrity jewelry looks from the Vanity Fair party and Elton John’s Chopard-hosted viewing soiree.


Scarlett Johansson Oscar Jewelry – Loved this statement ring on Scarlett Johansson – an haute couture creation by Anna Hu.

Celine Dion Oscar Jewelry – Love it or hate it, this statement piece from Bulgari made jaws drop in horror and/or amazement.

Cate Blanchett Oscar Jewelry

This lavendar and canary yellow Givenchy number had couture queens crowing and others scratching their heads. I (for one) loved it and couldn’t believe she could find jewelry to make the look even better (these yellow diamond earrings are from Van Cleef & Arpels).


What almost upstaged the jewelry gawking at the Vanity Fair Party? The coming out ofThe Biebs and Selena Gomez as an official Hollywood couple! Awwww… Aren’t they cute?

From Charlize Theron and Anna Paquin to Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel, the A-list came to Graydon Carter’s sandbox in stunning, shimmering jewels.

And Rita Wilson? Less is more, sister.


Vanity Fair Oscar Party Brings The Bling

Not ready to let go of Oscar night just yet? Here are some fun shots of the folks that didn’t make the Oscar red carpet but sizzled at the night’s true big event – The Vanity Fair After Party. And the bling was still serious. This is Vanity Fair not Us Weekly, folks

The carpet featured a veritable Who’s Who of Hollywood icons – Jodie Foster! Jane Fonda AND Peter friggin Fonda!?! Jackie AND Joan Collins!

And the ingenue factor went waaay up from the lackluster Oscar showing – Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Anna Paquin, Jessica Simpson, Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts the list goes on…

A surprisingly svelte Jennifer Hudson sparkled in navy with diamond chandelier earrings.

And Hilary Swank officially entered the ‘trying too hard’ club with this get up, no? But that diamond pendant is as stunning as the cleavage drop!

And finally – will you look at the ice on Joan, Joan Joan! I was called out by Kathy Ireland yesterday on Twitter for criticizing her gi-normous diamond bib necklace choice, which she pointed out was from Elizabeth Taylor, herself.

Point taken.

But it’s only icons like Liz and Joan (and filthy rich drag queens) who can really pull off such extravagance in my humble opinion. I mean, LOOK at this diamond ensemble, will you? Not even Charlize could attempt such a display.

Bless you, Alexis. Bless you, Vanity Fair. My cup is no longer half empty – it runneth over..
