Do you remember Rihanna’s pope dress from MET 2018?
Lady Gaga’s black dress, black gloves and mighty yellow diamond from the 2019 Oscars?
Clearly, these red carpet fashion moments are going to stay etched in our minds forever.
The event itself ends in a couple of hours but become a part of our conversations - and our social media feeds - for days!
While dresses obviously capture the most attention, the accessories are not to be forgotten without which these “looks” would be incomplete. The glittering diamonds, the stunning gemstones and the lustrous 24 K gold steal the show!
The red carpet has shown us some jaw dropping jewelry - whether it be Angelina Jolie’s emerald drop earrings, Nicole Kidman’s Indian Mughal inspired earrings or Celine Dion’s Titanic-style Sapphire necklace
Here are some of the best styled looks from the Red carpet and with that, we show you how you can ace the Hollywood inspired look with just a little extra attention to accessorizing.
Contrasting bright gemstone with blacksL: Lady Gaga, 2019 Oscars; R: Angelina Jolie, 2009 Oscars
The 2019 Oscars was all about Lady Gaga. Once again, the diva stood up to her reputation of dressing up like no one has thought to before.
The legendary singer/diva/actress showed up at the Oscars wearing a stunning 128 carat Tiffany yellow diamond necklace- that was THE highlight of the event- with her black Alexander McQueen gown.
Even though wearing the same necklace might be (a little) tough, no one’s to say we can’t be inspired.
What stood out for Gaga, was the contrast of the bright yellow diamond against the black.
And that’s exactly what you have to do.
An LBD or a structured black jumpsuit paired with a pair of bright yellow citrine gemstone earrings seems like a match made in heaven, doesn’t it?
Our picks for gemstone jewelry for your black dress
Clockwise: Songs of summer gemstone studded pendant, Revival gemstone and pearl detail necklace, Citrine Paris earrings, Emerald Colombo hoops, Tanzanite ring
Another suggestion we have is to wear a necklace with a heavily gemstone studded pendant against your dark blacks and blues. Trust MOI, this is the best way to highlight your jewels and YOU!
Colour on colourL: Carry mulligan, SAG awards 2021; R: Anya Taylor Joy, Critics Choice Awards 2021
If you’re anything like us and love clean styling, you’ll love this one.
We have as examples, Anna Taylor Joy at the Choice Awards and Carry Mulligan at the Sag Awards; pairing solid, print-less, clean dresses with bright pops of colour proving it’s a great way to stand out.
While Carry Mulligan wore a black and white colour-blocked Prada dress with bright pops of green with an emerald ring and matching earrings, Anna went all Hollywood glam and wore a sheer-y berry-purple dress, complete with gloves. She accessorized this with tanzanite tassel earrings, donning a look straight out of Cinderella’s ball.
Here’s what you need to do - Pick clean fabrics, especially those which naturally exhibit a luxurious character like satin, lace, etc. They’ll work wonders to exhibit a look that speaks of mindful styling.
Our picks for gemstone jewelry for solids
Clockwise: Purple amethyst Hexa earrings, Ruby and emerald nizam ring, Ivory centre Nur choker, Green tourmaline earrings, Emerald and diamond Eden studs
Pair these up with statement jewels like our party-perfect sapphire studded Felix ring or the edgy Amethyst and diamond Hexa earrings.
Keep in mind to wear jewels in a different, complimenting colour so that it is hard to miss.
Zendaya, 2021 Oscars
Zendaya, 2021 Oscars
While the trend of layering has been around for quite some time now, Zendaya’s take on it for the Oscars was quite the head turner.
">Layering is usually done by stacking minimal, dainty chains, rings or bracelets, as otherwise it can come across as looking too bulky.
But Zendaya proves here, statement necklaces can be stacked in a tasteful manner too.
So, what’s the key to getting it right?
Putting together jewel pieces which have something in common.
Our favorite jewelry for layering
Clockwise: Stack of gold Norah bangle and gold Kristen bracelet, Heer necklace and Naksh necklace with diamonds, Diamond studded twin ring, Meera necklace with pearls and rubies, Eve Tassel necklace
Like Zendaya, you could wear a diamond choker with a diamond necklace.
If it is rings, keeping them all gold instead of one gold and one rose gold helps in creating harmony between all the jewelry.
If you want to wear jewelry in different finishes, say one bracelet in gold and another in white gold, you could try and keep the gemstones the same. Picture our Diamond Mojito ring with the gold Millenial ring - since they’re both studded with diamonds, wearing them together would still create a harmonious look.
Classic diamond and pearl jewelryL: Michelle Williams, 2012 Oscars; Grace Kelly, 1995 Oscars
Do you have that one pair of pearl earrings that you can wear with almost anything?
A pearl necklace, diamond studs, a classic diamond necklace and pearl drop earrings - these are classic jewels every woman should own.
Be it an anniversary dinner or a red carpet occasion, these classic pieces of fine jewelry will never fail you.
In the past, Grace Kelly has shown us time and again her love for dainty pearl jewelry.
We even have a pair of pearl and diamond earrings named after her!
And not too long ago, Michelle Williams was spotted at the 2012 Academy Awards with a single line diamond necklace. Look again! It changes the whole look of her outfit!

Tone on toneL: Jessica Alba, 2006 Oscars, R: Janelle Monae, 2020 Academy Awards
Remember when wearing everything ‘matching’ was a trend?
We recently saw Janelle Monae sporting the trend for the 2020 Academy Awards with a crystalline silver gown and matching white gold jewelry. Her statement diamond necklace and her stack of diamond rings complemented her dress perfectly!
In the past, we have seen Jessica Alba too doing the same with her golden gown and golden drop earrings.
And isn’t this the easiest way to accessorize? Almost takes no effort!
