2009 Golden Globes 2009 - Beautiful Bling

I've noticed lately that many stars on the red carpet for various entertainment events have been sporting little or no jewelry at the neckline. Most of the fashionistas are reporing a big down trend in the bling department. But one would not have known this by viewing the latest Golden Globe red carpet photos. Even though some stars still seemed to be advocating he minimalist look, bling was still well in evidence!

How could one miss Eva Mendes' stunning and huge turquoise choker? Even though my interest is vintage jewelry, this choker is one to die for!

More stars who showed up loaded with glitz were Beyonce, in a spectacular diamond festoon necklace by Lorraine Schwartz , and Christina Applegate in a vintage yellow diamond flower necklace – also by Schwartz. And Elizabeth Banks stunned all with her gorgeous diamond choker necklace.

I, for one, am happy to see a return to glitz. Call me old fashion, but a low cut dress with nothing at the neckline just doesn't seemed finished to me. Compare Eva's look to this one by Evan Longoria and you will see what I mean by this. Eva looks fabulous, of course, she always does, but I would love to see something at her neckline to add to the look.

The big guns were there for the wrists too. I've noticed that even those who went bare at the neckline still sported lovely big bracelets. The styles here included Sandra Bullocks's gold and turquoise snake bracelet and Freida Pinto, Debra Messing and Megan Fox, sporting a big look in layered bangles.

Glad to see the bling is back in force!
