Academy Award Diamonds

Oscar #1

 Red Carpet Watching

This could be a considered legitimate spectator sport in my family, especially for the Academy Awards. While I always love the content of the award show itself, there is just so much concentrated glamour during the couple hours leading up to it.

Oscar #3

This year, I was lucky to be spending my Spring Break at Casa Ybel Resort. I love the idea of dressing up to celebrate the event because if the stars are happy and celebrating, why shouldn’t we be too? The Academy Awards were on a beautifully sunny Sunday, and as with so many events in the past year, Brian Gavin Diamonds was ready to help me increase my own personal glam factor.

Oscar #4

My attire for the viewing party with Traea’s family was simple but chic. As per usual, my Hearts and Arrows Round Diamond took center stage, despite how colorful my dress was. Although this garment was part of the fashion forward, yet affordable Prabal Gurung for Target line, I got it on even further discount by shopping at thredUP. You already know how I feel about this shopping site…

Oscar #5

I didn’t even realize quite how perfectly this dress would match the tropical background we were shooting in. The palm trees and vibrant flowers blended with Prabal’s fabric effortlessly. Although I was sitting on a carpet of green grass, I feel like my diamond was absolutely Academy Award worthy.

While I was shooting in Florida, the real stars of the night were being prepped by A-list stylists and hair & make-up teams. The women pictured below not only represent some of my all-time favorite actresses in terms of dynamite talent and gorgeous wardrobe choices, but they also were all wearing diamonds for their walk on this famed carpet.

From Lupita in sky blue to Kerry in purple, all of these ladies shined at the Academy Awards. Every single woman donned diamonds, and in my opinion, their jewelry merely emphasized their radiant natural beauty even more.

Isn’t that what jewels are all about?
