There was lots of glitz on last nights Oscars Red Carpet. If I had to pick jusssssst one to take home the best dressed trophy I’d had to pick Gwyneth for that Tom Ford cape number. I could have done without the hair, but I love that her dress was on trend and she took a risk with that cape. It was haute! But there were tons of other trends on the red carpet I was excited to see. One of them being the simple rhinestone necklace. I know, I know it’s totally unusual for me to be attracted to something that’s not so blingy and statementy but sometimes simple, clean and classic makes the loudest statement of all. Now we all know those necklaces on the necks of Penelope, Cameron and Michelle probably cost a trazillion dollars, but here’s a quick and easy way for you to DIY the look.
There’s something so chic and so classic about a simple rhinestone necklace. Here actress Ava Gardner sports one to the 1954 Oscars. I’m not sure which accessory is better her necklace or her date, Frank Sinatra.
Here’s a little Hollywood history: Ava was nominated for her leading role in Mogambo. But it was her boo Sinatra who took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance in From Here to Eternity (via Parade).
