My #OscarJewelry recap recap. – Diamonds in the Library

That’s not a typo! Post-awards show days were my very favorite when I had a boring desk job and I still adore them: it’s so fun seeing what all the celebs wore and what reactions those fashion statements have elicited from the internet at large.

My Oscars Jewelry recap recapIt’s 4 pm on a Monday, so you definitely deserve a break by now. Bring on the #OscarJewelry recaps!

A lot has happened since last year’s Oscars. Revelations and repercussions have reverberated through the industry as secrets came to light and tyrants fell. The upheaval even affected red carpet fashion, with actresses using the commodity they are the most frequently reduced to – appearance – to take a stand against abuse.

I’ve always known that the entertainment industry was full of talented women, but the #MeToo movement has taught me that it’s full of strong women, too. Some of them may look like pretty dolls, but they’re warrior queens.

From Strong Women, Strong Jewels: Fierce and Formal at the 2018 Oscars, my own #OscarJewelry recap for Instore Magazine.
