This year’s Golden Globes show was like no other…in a good way. By choosing to wear all-black on the Red Carpet, the women of Hollywood harnessed the power of fashion (among their many other powers) to show their solidarity for the Time’s Up movement to fight sexual harassment and gender inequality. Many men also stepped up by wearing the organization’s lapel pin on their tuxedos.
We applaud the preshow interviewers who refrained from asking the irrelevant question: Who are you wearing? They knew there would be plenty of time for gown-and-jewelry assessing after the important events of Sunday night.
In that spirit, we thought it would now be timely to celebrate some outstanding pieces of jewelry designed by women, as seen at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Long a Hollywood favorite, L.A.-based designer Lorraine Schwartz is known for her fabulous Columbian emeralds, which were worn in abundance Sunday night as a symbol of hope and change. Actors Zoe Kravitz, Issa Rae, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Debra Messing all donned spectacular emeralds by Schwartz. Kendall Jenner, Kerry Washington, Allison Janney, and Eva Longoria (one of the Time’s Up founders) opted for the popular designer’s diamond earrings.
Also based in L.A., jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth helms one of the top-selling jewelry brands in the country. She was well represented on the Golden Globes Red Carpet this year, as always. Human rights attorney Alexi Ashe, whose husband Seth Meyers hosted the show, chose emerald earrings by Neuwirth. Actor Tracee Ellis Ross wore the designer’s stunning pearl-drop earrings with a black Marc Jacobs gown and matching turban.
A relative newcomer to the fine jewelry scene, Sophie Buhai launched her namesake jewelry company in Los Angeles in 2015. Prior to that, she spent 10 years in the women’s wear industry. No doubt, Buhai’s extra-long pearl drops, as seen on Maggie Gyllenhaal at the Globes, will launch a trend for way-past-the-shoulder earrings.
Australian actress Katherine Langford sparkled in crystal hair clips by mega-star accessories designer Jennifer Behr. It’s a celestial look that OBJ has long embraced. You can find Behr’s hair jewelry at JenniferBehr.com and Bergdorf Goodman, dazzling Red Carpet “jewels” in the low hundreds (not thousands!) of dollars.
