Scarlett Johansson stunned in an emerald green Atelier Versace gown with a bib collar of matching Swarovski crystals. According to, she added a “Piaget Mediterranean Garden ear cuff set in 18k pink gold with five pear-shaped emeralds, 278 brilliant-cut diamonds, four pear-shaped aquamarines and two pear-shaped green tourmalines.” That was only one ear…her mismatched earrings were on trend.

Last year’s It Girl Lupita Nyong’o wore Chopard diamond earrings, but it was all about her white Calvin Klein Collection gown by Francisco Costa. Embellished with more than 6,000 pearls, it was one of the most striking dresses of the night. Nyong’o is always a super-standout on the red carpet. When asked by an E! TV reporter if she could sit in this heavy number, Lupita replied it was “surprisingly comfortable.”

Cate Blanchett, who won an Oscar last year, was somewhat subdued this year in a simple black dress by John Galliano for Maison Margiela. Her turquoise statement necklace by Tiffany & Co. turned up the volume with a blast of bold color. Turquoise, it seems, never goes out of style (see Ralph Lauren collections), but it is refreshing to see it on the red carpet.

Academy Award-winning song co-writer Common was one of several male stars who championed the burgeoning trend of lapel pins on the red carpet. His 19th-century sapphire and diamond Clover Brooch, sapphire and diamond Dress Set, and 1960s diamond Mystery Dial Watch, all from Fred Leighton, were the perfect accessories for his well-tailored tux. Bravo!
