Awards season is finally coming to an end. We've seen some amazing red carpet looks thus far, but you know what they say: Save the best for last. The Oscars 2015 | Academy Awards went out with a bang and showed us our favorite outfits from the entire season!
Besides the ongoing trends of glimmery white and silver gowns, nude blush tones, dark lips, sleek buns and high slit dresses, there were three celebrities that we fell in love with. These stars showed us true fashion and style through accessories.
Margot Robbie - Robbie donned a plunging SAINT LAURENT dress and shoes that resembled an 80's style. She strayed away from the typical Oscar type of gown for this reveiling, yet elegant look. This look would not be complete without the VAN CLEEF & ARPELS jewelry. Her "Zip Necklace" is literally a work of art. The piece took 800 hours to painstakingly craft. It's priced at $1.5 million. She accompanied it with matching yellow gold rings. All of her jewelry can be found at our Van Cleef & Arpels boutique inside of The Shops at Crystals.
Nicole Kidman - Nicole looks like a million bucks. Seriously, she's literally worth $7 million in HARRY WINSTON diamonds. Her custom LOUIS VUITTON dress and Petite-Malle clutch already had our curiosity, but the 111.11 carats now has our attention. The Caftan Diamond Bracelet was specifically made for her. You won't be able to find this at our Harry Winston location, but can find a similar one that is equally as stunning.
Reese Witherspoon - We've realized that anything in TOM FORD looks great. This white & black strapless dress was simple and chic. It's beautiful by itself, but amazing when accompanied with the right shoes and jewels. Witherspoon chose a classic black JIMMY CHOO pump and one-of-a-kind TIFFANY & CO. jewels from the 2015 Tiffany Blue Book collection. Her ring features a 3.03 carat blue diamond... A.K.A one of the rarest type of colored diamonds in the world. Look out for this new collection at the The Shops at Crystals when in launches in April!
The 2015 Grammy Awards featured several musicians who are known for having the best sound in the industry. After watching the red carpet, it was clear that they are also known for being the best dressed. We saw two big, yet simple trends on the carpet: White and Black.
Ariana Grande sported a sheik one shoulder VERSACE gown with silver chain details along the side, while Rita Ora shimmered in a sheer silver and white long-sleeve PRADA dress. This dress was one-of-a-kind, but you can find something that’s equally as stunning at our location. Not every store carries the newest runway collections like ours. Chrissy Teigen walked the carpet in a classic EMILIO PUCCI dress with railroad cut-outs. Jennifer Hudson gave Teigen a run for her money by stepping out in a little white form fitting dress by TOM FORD. We have a similar dress at our location! In fact, most of the collection is white.
Gwen Stefani rocked the red carpet in a custom VERSACE jumpsuit with a mesh top to create an edgy appeal. This look was part of the spring collection. Look out for it at our location! Meanwhile, Big Sean looked dapper in a sleek YVES SAINT LAURENT suit. And Nicki Minaj flaunted her curves in a sheik TOM FORD dress with fringe. Childish Gambino showed his love for LANVIN by wearing everything from the brand head-to-toe. Everything Gambino is wearing can be found at our LANVIN boutique inside The Shops at Crystals.
The 2015 SAG Awards showed us what fashion is all about. We saw several different looks ranging from business and sexy to simple and swanky. There’s a lot to talk about besides the ongoing trends of white, one-shoulder dresses and pony tails, so let’s get straight to business! Below is our list of superlatives.
Natalie Portman, the famed oscar-winning American actress and worldwide partner of the brand since 2011, unveils the first watch designed and created together with Richard Mille, embodied in the Tourbillon RM 19-01 Natalie Portman. Recognized as a brilliant woman in her public as well as private life, she is a multi-talented woman of high accomplishments, having graduated from Harvard in psychology in addition to her roles at the theater and on screen.
For this first collaboration, Natalie Portman set her mind on an image combining strong associations and complex undertones expressed by a diamond studded and encrusted tracery based upon the image of a spider.
The RM19-01 manual winding tourbillon caliber is assembled around a black rhodium-plated, 18K white gold black sapphire set baseplate, a first for Richard Mille. The spider within the movement, also in 18K white gold and delicately set with diamonds, forms an integral part of the movement, with the abdomen of the spider actually supporting the bridges of the tourbillon, and its legs supporting the two winding barrels.
This aesthetic achievement was only possible after a long and difficult machining process followed by many hours of hand polishing, finishing and the guiding eye of the watchmaker working in harmony with the centuries old skills of the jewel setter- together creating the physical manifestation of Natalie’s personal vision for this unique and limited edition timepiece.
Available in 20 pieces worldwide, this novel ladies’ creation will be worn by Natalie Portman at several events worldwide and is available for purchase at the Richard Mille boutique on level 2 of The Shops at Crystals.
