Marchesa Spring 2007; glittery gold from Fred
In preparation for the upcoming Academy Awards, eBay's Style Director, Constance White, and Jewelry Style Director, Sandra Graham, have been meeting with celebrities and their stylists all week at the eBay Style Suite. “I think we will see a lot of pale colors-off whites, blush, dove gray---but probably not much white or black," predicts White. "I also expect to see a return to old Hollywood with ruffles and pleating in gowns rather than embellishments like sequence and beading. And even though it’s not typical, I expect to see a short dress or two to shake things up."
Jewelry-wise, Graham notes that conflict-free diamonds will be the unsung hero of the night thanks to the awareness raised by the film Blood Diamond. She also predicts that gold will emerge as a bigger trend following the splash Angelina Jolie's rose gold pieces made at this year's Golden Globe awards.
