With this week’s Golden Globes behind us, we decided to take a minute to look at the financial big picture of the award ceremonies.
Red carpet functions like the Golden Globes are multi-million dollar enterprises. And because of the black fashion theme this year (representing solidarity behind the #metoo and #timesup movement), high-end jewelry stood out in a major way.
More than 20 million dollars worth of watches and jewelry was worn by some of Hollywood’s finest. In particular, diamond jewelry was the scene stealer for most of the women.
Harry Winston was one of the most-worn brands. This included Kate Hudson and Salma Hayek who wore more than $5 million in Winston diamonds. Other Winston wearers included Emilia Clarke, Claire Foy, Viola Davis, Helen Mirren and Lily James.
Chopard, Piaget and Tiffany’s were runners-ups.
So while we missed colorful Golden Globes of years passed, we couldn’t help but note how black really accentuated accessory choices.
