But, as with all awards ceremonies, there was still a show of jewelry. It seems there is an unwritten rule that there cannot be a red carpet event without some sort of bling. This year, the prominent jewelry item seemed to be big earrings. None were quite as much of a stand out as these enormous hoop earrings worn by Beyonce. It does beg the question though: Which was more flashy? The hoop earrings or the brightly colored dress? Say what you will, they did compliment each other well.
