Here's a quickie review of the Academy Awards last night, from a jewelers perspective.
Natalie Portman's earrings were a perfect fashion accessory. They complemented (did not compete) with her dress and cheekbones. Her own style showed through and that's what made her look beautiful.
Anne Hathaway looked incredible in wardrobe and jewelry changes. She's got it. And who thought she needed James Franco, anyway?
Best acceptance speech was from Tom Hooper for "The King's Speech", which ended with "always listen to your mother".
That seems good advice whether you are a Hollywood star, director or a lowly jeweler at the Jersey Shore.
Have a great day. And listen to your mother!
