Once again there were lots of plunging necklines (with no necklaces - a pet peeve of mine), but with a notable exceptiong this time - bejeweled collars.
Earrings and bracelets were out in force though. None could compare to this pair of giant earrings by Christina Applegate of TV's "Samantha Who?" The diamond hoops, reportedly designed by Lorraine Schwartz would have some muse that there is really no downturn in our economy.
One necklace that caught my eye is this stunner by Eva Longoria - normally one to show off her bare cleavage. Eva wore what looks, at first like a flashy choker necklace, but appears to actually be a part of the top of her dress. Very vintage inspired look.
The bejeweled necklines were somewhat of a trend at the ceremony. Perhaps a shout out to Michelle Obama's bejeweled neck last week at the inaugural ceremony.
Anne Hathaway flashed in vintage Cartier jewels. And January Jones chose a black and gold Andrew Gn dress with an intricately detailed collar. I would have liked to have seen her hair up. The collar demands that, I think. She had on huge earrings to compliment the collar.
It will be interesting to see if this bejeweled collar becomes a new trend, inspired by the first lady.
