Advising Amy Adams, Eva Longoria, Kate Flannery, and Randy Jackson about red carpet jewelry is all in a day's work for celebrity style expert Michael O’Connor. If Michael O'Connor looks familiar, you may have seen him covering the Academy Awards red carpet for TV Guide TV or caught his fashion segments for MTV and E!
The Inside Source caught up with Michael O’Connor at StyleLab’s Golden Globes Jewelry Suite, an only-in-Hollywood destination where top celebrities and celebrity stylists can borrow their choice from a total of $14m worth of red carpet jewelry.
With the Golden Globes behind us and several awards shows still ahead, we asked celebrity style expert Michael O'Connor what fashion jewelry trends we can expect to see glimmering on our screens.
“I always view clothing as the wrapping for a beautiful present, but the jewelry is the ribbon. You need to have that kind of sparkle,” explained Michael O’Connor. “This season, the red carpet is influenced by a couple of things. Number one: fashion designers are doing a lot of color, so jewelry designers are starting to add more colored diamonds and unusual colored gem stones.”
The Examiner put up some great coverage of Style Lab's 2011 Golden Globe jewelry suite. Have a look at the full article on their website or read an excerpt below.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards brought Hollywood’s brightest and most talented stars together for one magical night of accolades, amazing fashion and gorgeous Platinum pieces.
The 2011 Golden Globes was the talk of the town regarding who won and who wore what. One general theme that stood out was that the stars turned to Platinum as their jewelry of choice to sparkle on the red carpet. Celebrities ranging from young Hollywood starlets like Natalie Portman, Camilla Belle, and Michelle Williams as well as Hollywood vets like Annette Bening, Hellen Mirren, Julianna Margulies and Edie Falco sparkled and stole the spotlight all in Platinum.
Celebrity stylist Michael O’Connor gave me a sneak peak prior to the Golden Globes to give me insider access as to what pieces the celebs would be wearing at StyleLab's Golden Globes Jewelry Suite. As Michael pointed out, the red carpet jewelry trends this year were color and larger yet interesting pieces, “big is in.” One popular designer that was a hit at the StyleLab jewelry lounge was Georland, a European designer that’s “fairly new to the United States, originally from Europe but does really, really interesting, beautiful precious and semi-precious color also with a little bit of a whimsical feel.” My fave picks were Georland’s frog ring and brooch as well as the collection of hoop earrings in pink, blue or yellow sapphire. As for the larger pieces that made a statement, Beverly Hills designer, Dena Kemp’s beautiful cuff bracelet stood out for its larger proportion and intricate details.

A high charged energy was palpable at gifting suites and showrooms today. After all it's crunch time, and if you haven't secured the look of your dreams, or at least an acceptable substitute for Sunday night, you've got some work to do. The Office actress, Kate Flannery, was at StyleLab's Golden Globes Jewelry Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel, and surveyed some platinum pieces before taking a shine to a diamond bracelet from Georland. Minnie Driver, who isn't nominated, but will be attending the awards show, picked up a platinum, diamond and ruby ring by Shaftel Diamond Co., as well as a 14 carat diamond bracelet by Dena Kemp. Just a stone's throw away at the GBK Golden Globes Lounge at the London West Hollywood hotel, 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord, who will likely attend some Globes after parties, went bonkers for footwear brand Ron White Signature. McCord threw off the shoes she wore in the door in favor of the Canadian-designed platforms. Jennifer Love Hewitt, nominee for Best Performance by an Actress for her role in the television movie The Client List, was there too and snagged some swimwear. Wait, swimwear? Well, it didn't always make sense, but what the heck, it's all part of the fun of Golden Globes week.
The Recessionista has a great blog post up about the predictions (I helped make) for fashion and jewelry trends at this year's Golden Globe awards.
I had the great opportunity to dress Minnie Driver at this year's Style Lab: Golden Globe Awards 2011. She's an amazing person and a joy to work with.
