Hollywood's leading ladies did indulge in some jaw-dropping gems, most notably
Jennifer Garner, who accessorized her magenta Gucci with some massive ice: Neil
Lane darkened platinum and diamond necklace, earrings and bracelet (200 carats,
$2.5 million total).
"The Impossible" nominee Naomi Watts wore 20-carat platinum and diamond drop
earrings and a platinum and diamond bracelet ($1.5 million total) with her
gunmetal sequined Armani. Charlize Theron's vintage Harry Winston platinum and
diamond bracelets totaled more than 100 carats added the right amount of luxe to
her divine Christian Dior.
Although "Les Miserables" winner Anne Hathaway's Prada dress didn't show off her Tiffany & Co.
diamond and platinum "Corsage" neckace to its best advantage, the $485,000 piece
was still beautiful.
There were quite a few gorgeous gold pieces on the red carpet: "Zero Dark
Thirty" star Jessica Chastain wore a vintage Harry Winston diamond and gold
bracelet that coordinated with her bronze Armani gown, while Samantha Barks of
"Les Miserables" used her low-cut Valentino to show off a House of Waris for
Forevermark pendant in yellow gold with an oval Forevermark diamond. Best
bracelet? "Skyfall"'s Naomie Harris' "Sunrise" bracelet in 18 karat gold with
citrines and diamonds. By Vicki Hyman.
