Neil Lane - Now That is Red Carpet Style!

Diamond and Platinum Cocktail Ring,
Diamond and Platinum Straight line Bracelet,
Diamond and Platinum Bangle and
Diamond and Platinum Ribbon Earrings
TOTAL LOOK= $500,000 

While I am a firm believer in Beverly Hills' own "King of Bling" and the Red Carpet would be a sad sad thing without him...I was surprised by the number of  Hollywood Royalty that wore their Neil Lane Jewelry to Oscar Viewing Parties!

I am by no means discounting the amazing vision in lavender that was Mila Kunis in a luscious Elie Saab Haute Couture lace & chiffon number accented by diamonds from Neil Lane.

Diamond and platinum bangle (35 carats) $375,000,
diamond and platinum bracelet (50 carats) $500,000,
emerald diamond and platinum ring (10 carats) $60,000,
emerald and diamond earrings (35 carats) $50,000.
TOTAL LOOK= $1 MILLION (total carats= 130)

...Reese Witherspoon who looked like a vivacious Barbie from the 70's in a black & white Giorgio Armani Prive evening gown and those shockingly green emerald Neil Lane earrings.

Fancy colored diamond ring (20 carats) $300,000,
diamond long basket earrings (10 carats) $22,750,
wide platinum diamond bracelet (50 carats) $150,000,
wide diamond and platinum bracelet (50 carats) $150,000,
diamond and platinum leaf bracelet (35 carats) $225,000.
 TOTAL LOOK= $1 MILLION (total carats= 165)

Or the jaw dropping tangerine Atelier Versace filled beautifully by "Dream Girl"  Jennifer Hudson, who you could tell was enjoying her Neil Lane jewels.

But some of the best Neil Lane Red Carpet jewels walked into Viewing Parties!

The Elton John AIDs Foundation Viewing Party offers a cocktail party followed by dinner that raises close to $2million in one night to benefit the foundation's goals.
Diamond, platinum and gold cluster earrings
and a diamond, gold and platinum cocktail ring. 

Emma Roberts attended the exclusive function at the Pacific Design Center, in a gunmetal gown from Jenny Packham.

While over at the Vanity Fair party we had several Neil Lane sightings...

Juliette Lewis  – Diamond and platinum cluster earrings, sapphire, diamond and platinum wide cuff and a lapis, diamond and
 platinum cocktail Ring

Local Newscaster...
Lauren Sanchez   Large diamond and kunzite chandelier earrings and a diamond moonstone and platinum wide cuff.
(...these earrings are definitely a favorite for me!)

Serena Williams 
– Diamond and gold necklace, diamond and gold earrings, 2 diamond and gold cuffs and 2 diamond and gold bracelets

Large diamond and platinum drop earrings
 and a diamond and platinum
bombay cocktail ring

Jennifer Westfeldt  – Diamond, aqua and platinum drop earrings and a large diamond and aqua and platinum cocktail ring

Charlize Theron dominated the Vanity Fair Red Carpet in her Swarovski crystal adorned one shoulder gown from the 2011 Atelier Vesace Collection.

To close this Neil Lane Lovefest, I quote the Accessories Editor for the Examiner Colette Bouchez...

Lane says  whether you’re prancing down  Oscar’s Red Carpet in a million dollars worth of Neil Lane jewels, or walking your own red carpet in $100 worth of cubic zirconia, having confidence in who you are is what is going to be most reflected in how you look.  
Says Lane: “When you feel that sense of confidence in not only how you look , but in who you are,  that’s what makes you the center of attention - that’s what glamour  2011 is all about.”
