The ‘Go Big or Go Home’ fashion mantra is displayed in full glory by some of the attendees of the 89th Annual Academy Awards. And these two actresses seemed to be gunning for gold as well. The arresting statement that is Jessica Biel’s Tiffany & Co. necklace, which has gold fronds fanned out like feathers from its metallic collar, fits perfectly with the dramatic ensemble the actress was going for with her Kaufman Franco form-fitting gold sequined gown. Twinning with the Oscars statuette, Dakota Johnson picks a Cartier vintage yellow-gold necklace encrusted with diamonds, which effortlessly complements her gilded Gucci number.

The competition to be the brightest on the red carpet was as stiff as the fight for the coveted golden statue. Putting up a good fight is Charlize Theron, who is striking in a pair of oversized fairmined gold earrings from Chopard’s Garden of Kalahari collection – a bold complement to her metallic pleated gown by Christian Dior. Not far off, Alicia Vikander steps out wearing Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream High Jewelery diamond necklace, which gives that added sparkle to her Louis Vuitton black lace gown.

Sometimes subtlety is all it takes to make it on the best-dressed list. Actresses who prefer just a touch of glimmer include first-time Oscar winner Emma Stone, who pays homage to La La Land’s vintage theme by accessorising her Givenchy beaded tassel-tiered gown with a dangly pair of 18k gold Whispers of the Rain Forest earrings from Tiffany & Co., and Nicole Kidman shines in variations of exquisite Harry Winston jewellery and a vintage Omega watch from 1955. Hollywood royalty Faye Dunaway is timeless in blue, appearing in Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream High Jewellery diamond necklace in sapphire, which matched her navy tuxedo-style gown.
