Is the Mani Cam Sexist?

E!’s award show red carpet coverage always guarantees two things. One: Ryan Seacrest will literally never ask who anyone’s jewelry is designed by. Two: Giuliana Rancic will deftly schmooze regardless of how awkward her interview subjects are. Ditto if they’re rude. And ever since the 2013 Emmy’s, we’re guaranteed another staple: the Mani Cam shall be met with varying degrees of emotion, ranging from derisive annoyance to enthusiastic flipping of the bird. The Mani Cam, invented to show off the “manicures” of female celebrities, enabled jewelry commentators at home to get a close up of any ring action happening on the hands. Read More →

Oscar de la Renta: Farewell to a Legend

Oscar de la Renta was already a legend. A man who could make any woman look – and feel – incredible, feminine, and powerful in his stunning designs. From red carpets to bridal runways (and both, in the case of Amal Clooney), Oscar’s designs were easy to spot from a mile away, and easily admired from afar.

Best Oscar Jewelry Trends

No other single event in fashion influences jewelry the way that the Academy Awards red carpet does. Granted, not everyone can ring up Harry Winston when they need some diamonds, but the trends seen on celebs translate well into costume and fine pieces that most people already own. So we love watching the emerging trends for the next year in full force on Hollywood’s a-list, and last night, we saw several that we were totally on board with! The Backlace Biggest trend of the night, even if only two actresses wore it. It doesn’t hurt that those two actresses happened Read More →
