Red Carpet Preview: The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Will Mark the Return of the Lady Complete with Jewels Fit for a Queen

The 2015 red carpet season begins this weekend with the Golden Globes. The list of female nominees is quite thrilling, featuring a blend of veteran actresses and promising ingénues. They are admired for their elegant, red carpet style as well as the brilliant on-screen performances that they delivered this year. Our style prediction for Sunday, and perhaps throughout the upcoming awards show circuit, will be a return to classic, dignified ensembles, complete with jewelry fit for a queen.

ASHOKA Reese Ring

In the category of Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, our sentimental favorite is Reese Witherspoon. We have been great admirers of her talent for many years, and we were delighted when her husband proposed in 2010 with a stunning ASHOKA® diamond engagement ring, our proprietary diamond cut.

For recent red carpet appearances, Reese has opted for short cocktail frocks, which may be a good luck charm (remember the gorgeous Chanel dress that she wore when she won the Golden Globe for Walk the Line in 2006?). Whatever Reese decides to wear on Sunday, there is no doubt that her ASHOKA® diamond ring will add a touch of timeless beauty and grace, confirming her status as a style icon.

The return of magnificent brooches will be another adornment making a presence on the red carpet. According to a VOGUE.COM story posted this week, the brooch is making a comeback, and has recently been featured as a prominent accessory on the runways of Chanel, Céline, Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang.

A chic diamond brooch would be the perfect accent to the more simple silhouettes typically favored by Best Actress nominee Jennifer Aniston. Alternatively, Best Actress nominee Rosamund Pike and Best Supporting Actress front-runner Patricia Arquette may opt for one that has a bit more edge, yet still maintains the brooch’s sophisticated roots.

Finally, the foundation of any stylish, feminine look is the earring. Although big and bold diamond chandelier earrings have dominated the red carpet for years, expect linear diamond drops in geometric shapes to have their moment this season. This style is simple, yet regal and would be an excellent choice for double nominee Julianne Moore or red carpet regular Amy Adams. We love the balance and symmetry an earring with strong, clean lines can create, whether dressing for one of Hollywood's biggest nights or attending a special event of your own.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globes will air live on Sunday, January 11, 2015, on NBC from 5:00-8:00 p.m. (PST)/8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST).
