I didn’t watch the SAG Awards last Saturday but I read a few articles recapping the gowns and it seemed as though there was a lot of bad fashion on the red carpet (exceptions included Helen Mirren—of course!—and Viola Davis). While going through pictures, I saw Nicole Kidman in a pink and lavender sequined Gucci gown. I wasn’t sure of it at first, but then saw a clip of her walking in it and decided that I totally loved it—that multicolored shimmer when she moves is amazing! Plus, she is so tall, I thought that slender silhouette with a ruffled bodice really suited her and I liked that the panels of sequins were edged in black.

|Love the pairing of these two necklaces!|
You won’t be surprised to know that what stopped me first were her AMAZING necklaces. In fact, if you look closely, her jewelry knocked it out of the park—an onyx, diamond and carved emerald pendant necklace, layered with another onyx and diamond necklace, diamond earrings, a lion brooch at her waist (I think it’s a lion) and assorted Art Deco rings and bracelets. I guessed it was from Cartier but it turns out to be from Fred Leighton, the celebrity jeweler. The watch is vintage Omega from 1952 called the Ladies’ Secret Jewellry because the face is hidden behind diamonds.
Do note the brooch at her waist, below. I absolutely love details like this that you may not catch on first glance!

I don’t know who Nicole’s stylist is these days, she was very close to L’Wren Scott, who was her stylist for years before her death in 2014. Whoever it is, she (or he!) has a great eye for jewelry!

Naomi Watts looked so beautiful in her deep blue floral gown by Burberry, topped off with Bvlgari jewelry. The blue of the dress and the sapphires really made her eyes the bluest I have ever seen them! I read comments over at the Daily Mail by people who thought Naomi looked too thin. I didn’t think so but let me hear your thoughts on this. Is Naomi looking too thin for your liking? She looks pretty good to me!
|Such a great shade of blue on Naomi!|

I was so in love with this detailed shot of the dress, watch and bag. This is my perfect idea of red, white and blue!
