Oscars Red Carpet: Where's the Bling?

Oscars Red Carpet: Where's the Bling?

The Oscars is the biggest event of the year in Hollywood. The time where everyone pulls out all the stops: the gowns, the hair, the makeup, the jewelry... but wait, this year, where was all the jewelry? One trend I noticed was bare necks on the red carpet and it almost made these women look like they were missing something. I love seeing what jewels people wear just as much as I love to see which designer dress they are wearing; so I have to ask, where was all the bling?

I think that reese could have worn a really sparkly necklace and got away with it- although she looked amazing anyway.

I'm with the majority of you ladies - I think a bare neckline looks very fresh and pretty. I love the move towards earrings and no necklaces, esp since it lets the bodice of the dress take center stage.

I like the bare neck for a change.

I think most of these dresses didn't need the necklace (especially Reese with all that long hair). I think they made the right choice to keep it classy and understated, especially Helen Mirren

I agree with crispet1.

I think everyone was going for the old Hollywood look. Simple and elegant. It's nice to not see everyone dripping in bling for a change. Who am I kidding, I love bling!

I like the move toward clean necklines and big earrings. In most of these cases I think necklaces would've been overkill with all the hair and makeup working as an accessory too.

I think Reese is the only one who couldve done better with a necklace. Many of the other gowns are already sparkly/metallic and a necklace (in addition to the earrings) would be too much. But Reese looks so great I dont notice the bare neckline as a negative.
