Are you as tired of seeing giant earrings on the red carpet as I am? I understand the sentiment. Hollywood doesn’t want to overdo it with a huge diamond ensemble or a Titanic-sized necklace during these trying times, yet it IS the red carpet, after all, so stylists compromise with…. the ubitquitous giant earring.
Last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards had big earrings a kimbo – from Christina Applegate in Lorraine Schwartz wagon wheels and Paula Abdul in diamond danglers to Amy Adams in giant H. Stern gemstone chandeliers and Lisa Rhinna’s flower look. And they are lovely, don’t get me wrong. But imagine my surprise when new trends presented themselves for a change – like basic gold earring statements from the likes of Angelina Jolie (the poster child of basic), Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss and the hilarious Jane Krakowski.

And the new looks didn’t end there. Bejeweled necklines made a glittering show on Anne Hathaway, January Jones and Eva Longoria – perhaps inspired by Michelle Obama’s diamond statement on Inauguration Day?
Colorful, off-the-shoulder looks were everywhere, and blue emerged as fashion’s big winner. Best Supporting Actress, Kate Winslet, stunned in steel blue Narciso Rodriguez and Chopard diamonds; and Desperate Housewives, Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross, added blue gemstone earrings to their SAG looks. And the usually gothed out Evan Rachel Wood channeled classic Hollywood in teal and a unique diamond eagle brooch. Her split from Marilyn Manson is the wise choice that just keeps on giving…






So OK. Gold earrings, jeweled necklines and the color blue are certainly not big red carpet revelations, but can we admit that they are a welcome change from the big earring brigade that seems to scream ‘lack of imagination’ when it comes to accessorizing a high profile look these days? Thank you.

I’m looking forward to more of this ‘mixing it up’ when it comes to the Oscars, OK ladies? Let’s just hope Oscar voters do the same when they see Meryl Streep’s name on the ballot this year. She’s great – and she nabbed the SAG this year – but let’s give someone else a go, shall we?

The famous ”Heart of the Ocean” sapphire and diamond necklace was the only thing actress Kate Winslet wore when Leo famously drew her portrait in that steamy scene in a little film called Titanic. And the gorgeous A lister continues to heat up the lens with a provocative photo shoot for this month’s Vanity Fair.

The images were shot as a sultry tribute to French actress Catherine DeNeuve in the classic film, Belle du Jour, and while Winslet doesn’t shy away from nudity in her films, she has never bared it all in the pages of a magazine.

In the accompanying interview, the mother of two, Mia (8) and Joe (5), says she realizes that the pictures will raise eyebrows among other mothers on the school run.

“I know when I walk into that classroom in the morning, even if it’s for a split second, at some point I’m being checked out. Some of them will even say to me, ‘OK, what’s the secret with the skin?’ At which point I’m like, ‘Oh my God, there’s no secret. I have make-up on. And by the way, since I turned 30 I’ve had an acne problem on my chin.”

Kate and Leo will team up again in the film Revolutionary Road, about a couple trapped in marriage in the 1950s. While she won’t be wearing the 170-carat sapphire that wowed audiences in Titanic (which later sold at a benefit auction for a whopping $2.2 million), there are plenty of steamy scenes between the two stars to keep tongues wagging.

In the meantime, the December issue of Vanity Fair is on newsstands this Friday.
