Long before leading ladies claim their golden Oscars at The 88th Academy Awards, their jewelry will be judged on the world’s most famously photographed red carpet. BELLA asked celebrity and royalty fashion stylist Engie Hassan of EngieHassan.com, and LA-based Style Blogger and Influencer Sydne Summer from SydneStyle.com, to predict what Tinseltown’s top actresses will be twinkling in that night.
“She created major buzz when she wore a necklace backwards at the Oscars. A statement choker would show off Jennifer’s strong features and look great whether she wore her hair up or kept her shorter, messy waves,” says Summer.
Hassan agrees. “I would prefer Jennifer wear a non-embellished gown and focus on the jewelry. I would love to see her wearing a diamond choker, perhaps from Neil Lane.”

“Rooney Mara is a head-turner who makes edgy choices look graceful and iconic. The perfect jewelry for her Oscar attire would be diamond ear cuffs paired with a diamond finger ring,” says Hassan.
Summer sees Mara in “a bold geometric cuff that fits right in with her minimalist, with an edge, style.”

“I would love to see her wear a statement necklace with yellow diamonds, hopefully by Damas Jewellery,” says Hassan.
Summer wants Fonda to go bold. “With her short hair and perfect posture, Jane is a pro at showing off oversize earrings. A wild pair would look equally fabulous with a high neckline dress or one of her more plunging styles.”
