It's Oscar time!!

jennifer-hudson-avon.jpg And THANK GOD I am not in LA covering it. I did talk to my favorite celebrity jeweler Neil Lane about what to expect coming down the red carpet. This is what he had to say:

What we are going to see: "It's all about the 'power jewel' this season" says Lane. You are going to see people one really great, iconic piece as opposed to over layering."

On the value of having celebrities wear his jewels: "Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Drew Barrymore are the prettiest women in the world, so when they wear your jewels, you are going to see an increase in sales. One year Gwyneth Paltrow wore a McQueen dress with a black diamond necklace. The whole look was very dark and smoldering. Right after she was on the red carpet, I had a client from Indiana asking to buy that exact piece!"

Neil Lane will be adorning Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson, Julie Christie and Reese Witherspoon (for the parties) in his fabulous jewels!!
