|The Big Business Of Red Carpet Bling
By: Fast Company
Actress Cate Blanchett is celebrated for her unconventional, avant-garde awards-show fashion. But at the 2015 Oscars, it was her jewelry that stole the red carpet show: She paired a long, simple black Maison Margiela gown with a Tiffany & Co. turquoise and diamond necklace. It dominated fashion headlines and soon thereafter, inspired knock-offs and Etsy reimaginings. Us Weekly promoted a $75 Blanchett-inspired jewelry giveaway.
"We didn’t plan on it," says Blanchett’s stylist, Elizabeth Stewart. "But it worked."
When it comes to Hollywood baubles, the motto is generally, "Go big or go home." To compete with couture gowns and Cinderella moments, top jewelers such as Bulgari, Chopard, and Forevermark go all out to secure their celebrity endorsements. It's a lengthy, complicated loaning process, and a chance at worldwide brand recognition.
