Madge Goes to the Oscars, 2014 Edition

Madge Goes to the Oscars 2014 Edition

Madge was back at the Oscars.  Well, if sitting at home on her couch counts as going to the Oscars. The red carpet fashion extravaganza was simply amazing this year.  The Look?  The statement necklace – big, bold and loaded with diamonds.  Silhouettes were generally long and lean with a few notable exceptions.

Here are Madge’s favorites of the evening.

And the Oscar goes to –

Charleze Theron, who seemed to be channeling Rita Hayworth in her absolutely stunning gown by Dior and a cluster diamond necklace by Harry Winston.

More Stunning Necklaces


Naomi Watts was a revelation in her white Calvin Klein gown and a diamond spider web necklace by Bulgari that left Madge gasping for breath.  Extra credit for the sophisticated hair style.   Madge goes to the oscars

Jennifer Lawrence shined bright in a red Dior with a necklace by Neil Lane that saved the best for the back.


And Then There Were The Earrings


Favorite look was from Amy Adams wearing a pair of large Tiffany teardrop earrings that included lapis lazuli, turquoise, diamond in gold pendants surrounded by a ring of fire opals. These earrings really popped against the understated elegance of her Gucci midnight blue peplum gown.



Lupita Nyong’o was an absolute vision in her light blue Prada flowing dress and Fred Leighton ear cuffs.Madge Goes to the Oscars



Cate Blanchette was an ethereal beauty in a nude Armani jeweled gown topped off with opal, white gold and diamond chandelier earrings from Chopard.  A look that was 180° from her dramatic Golden Globe appearance in all black.

  1. Thanks, Madge! I didn’t tune into the Oscars but I did wonder about the style show. I agree with you about the prettiest! Also my fave, the piece that I might wear, is Cate Blanchett’s Armani.
