Bare Chest Glam

At The Oscars Earrings Were In, Necklaces Were Very Out

— February 23, 2009 — Fashion
Despite the recession, the Oscars were an over-the-top glittering affair… save for the necklaces. At this year’s Oscars, diamonds, gems and baubles weren’t adorning necklines like they usually do. Instead, the actresses let their gowns shine along with hefty earrings and statement-piece bracelets.

Angelina Jolie showed up at the Oscars sans-necklace, a surprise after gossip-hungry media reported Mrs. Brad Pitt would drape a $20 million necklace around her slender neck.

The gallery shows a few of the starlets who showed up bare-chested: Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, Viola Davis, Lisa Rina, Kate Winslet, Anne Hathaway and Sarah Jessica Parker in a gem-encrusted fairy godmother gown.
Trend Themes
1. Statement Earrings - The trend of actresses opting for hefty earrings at the Oscars presents an opportunity for jewelry designers to create unique and eye-catching statement earrings.
2. Bracelet Accessories - The absence of necklaces on the red carpet opens up a market for statement-piece bracelets as an alternative way to accessorize gowns, providing an opportunity for jewelry designers to create innovative bracelet designs.
3. Minimalist Necklines - The shift towards bare necklines at the Oscars suggests a trend towards minimalist jewelry and a potential market for delicate, understated necklaces that complement the focus on gown designs.
Industry Implications
1. Jewelry Design - Jewelry designers can seize the opportunity to create unique and eye-catching statement earrings and alternative bracelet accessories inspired by the red carpet trend at the Oscars.
2. Fashion Retail - Fashion retailers can capitalize on the minimalist neckline trend by offering a variety of delicate and understated necklaces that complement gown designs.
3. Fashion Styling Services - Fashion stylists can adapt their services to cater to the shift towards minimalist jewelry, providing guidance and expertise in selecting and styling the right pieces to complement bare necklines.
