THE LOOK: Penelope Cruz wearing Chopard diamonds
TRY: Dannijo 'Garbo' Earrings
The most glamorous Hollywood event happened over the weekend, The Academy Awards. These five actresses not only dazzled with their gorgeous gowns, but with their lovely jewels too.
Penelope Cruz is that classic beauty that echoes Old Hollywood. And she did just that with her gorgeous grey/blue silk chiffon Armani gown and pretty Chopard diamonds. Penelope chose classic flower-shaped studs for the occasion, not distracting too much from her glamorous gown.
THE LOOK: Jessica Chastain wearing Harry Winston drop earrings
TRY: Bounkit Lemon Quartz Drop Earrings
Newcomer and Oscar nominee, Jessica Chastain, made a red carpet statement in an embroidered black and gold Alexander McQueen gown. Her beautiful red hair was in that effortless half up/half down up-do, with little citrine Harry Winston drop earring peeping out.
THE LOOK: Rose Byrne wearing Chanel earrings
TRY: Badgley Mischka Deco Redux Tassel Earrings
Australian knockout and star of Bridesmaids, Rose Byrne, dazzled in a sparkling Vivienne Westwood gown. She also had the chicest hairstyle of the evening, a sharp little Anna Wintour-like bob. Her earrings of choice: pretty tassel chandeliers by Chanel.
THE LOOK: Michelle Williams wearing a vintage Fred Leighton bow brooch
TRY: Kenneth Jay Lane Bow Drops Brooch
One of our favourite gowns of the evening belonged to Michelle Williams who wore a stunning, and very girly, Louis Vuitton, featuring a peplum detail at the hip and many cascading ruffles. But what we loved the most as the little bow brooch at her waist -- just lovely!
THE LOOK: Emma Stone wearing a Louis Vuitton cable chain bracelet
TRY: Zirconmania Gunmetal Pave Link Bracelet
Speaking of bows, we adored Emma Stone's Giambattista Valli gown. Emma went light on accessories, opting for tiny ruby earrings and a Louis Vuitton chain link bracelet. But really, the bow was everything! So fun; just like her style.

Okay, so the dresses are a tad bit skimpy, but we are loving Rihanna's new sleeker style. Sure, she's only made two public appearances with her new look, but both were incredibly chic.
CC SKYE Love Me Knot Bangle Set
CC SKYE Pave Golden Nugget Bracelet
At the Grammy Awards, she walked the red carpet in a Giorgio Armani black halter gown, paired with shiny gold accessories. She is actually wearing a lot of jewellery but, because it's all in one shade, it appears really minimal.
NOIR Triple Cubic Zirconia Ring
MELINDA MARIA Python Pave Ring
The layering of multiple bangles and rings is really chic, making the ensemble modern and edgy. We're thinking a combination of CC Skye, Noir, and Melinda Maria should do the trick -- python is a must!
BELLE NOEL Mini Dagger Necklace
During London Fashion Week, Rihanna was a guest at Stella McCartney's aftershow, wearing a dark teal Stella McCartney spaghetti strap gown. Again she brought gold accessories to spice things up, pairing not one but two gold chokers. We would probably just stick to one statement piece, like Belle Noel's dagger necklace.
We doubt she'll be at the Oscars this weekend, but we are looking forward to seeing what she wears next!
