Oscars 2013 Best Dressed – Metallic Silver, Hand Chains + Naeem Khan Stunners

At this year’s Academy Awards, the Red Carpet took on a definite metallic tone, which was only fitting for the biggest night in Tinsel Town! Here are our fav celeb looks — and a few Indian influenced fashion notes! — from the 2013 Oscars.

The 85th Annual Academy Awards was all about smoke and gunmetal. The first look we fell for during the pre-show carpet walk was Lead Actress nominee Naomi Watts’ body molding Armani Privé gown. We love the one-shoulder cutout detailing and the liquid metal look of this floor-length dress.

Our fav Indian designer, Naeem Khan, helped some of the night’s leading beauties follow the metallic silver trend. We were psyched to see Michelle Obama announce Ben Affleck’s Argo as Best Picture, but we were even more thrilled to see the First Lady wearing a gorgeous Naeem Khan look. With flattering light and dark silver paneling and an elegant square neckline, this all-over sequin gown will go down in Oscars fashion history.

Another Hollywood beauty to wear Naeem’s designs was Stacy Keibler. George Clooney’s girlfriend looked statuesque and stunning in a metallic Naeem Khan gown with a black empire waistband, a chic halter and fine embellishments arcing throughout. We saw this look firsthand at New York Fashion Week and can tell you its intricate detailing made this dress a standout in Naeem Khan’s Fall Winter 2013 collection.

Bond girl Halle Berry wore a silver custom Versace gown while introducing the show’s James Bond tribute. Her plunging gown had intricate Indian-inspired vertical sequin work, strong shoulders and changing silver hues that remind us a lot of ombré. For an Indian spin on the gunmetal Red Carpet trend, Luxemi recommends our chic Racer Back Salwar with Sharara Pants by Kisneel.

Another look we couldn’t stop awing over was Charlize Theron’s strapless winter white Dior gown. With a peplum waist and a deep V neckline, this sleek stunner was the latest all-white look to hit the Red Carpet. Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence also rocked white, a trend that Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway started at the 2013 Golden Globes.

Our top jewelry look of the night was definitely from music icon Barbra Streisand. We were pleasantly surprised to see the legendary singer rocking a gold hand chain during her tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. Want to emulate her look? Check out Luxemi’s Gold Flower Charm Hand Jewelry.

Oprah’s July 2012 Fantastic Finds – Luxemi Oblong Gold and Jade Earrings

If there’s one person Luxemi loves, it’s Oprah, so you can imagine how excited we were that the fashion and media icon featured one of our accessories in the July 2012 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. Here’s how to rock the Oblong Gold and Jade Earrings that Oprah loves with your favorite saree or salwar!

As soon as we laid eyes on these intriguing Oblong Gold and Jade Earrings, we knew they had to be part of Luxemi’s new accessory collection. What do we love most about them? For starters, their unique oval shape, which puts a chic twist on your typical drop earrings. A 1950s-inspired flower motif, pearl embellishments and jade-colored accent stones give these gold earrings a vintage-meets-modern appeal that’s on everyone’s fashion radar right now. And did we mention that they only cost $28?

For a classic pairing, we love wearing these earrings with this Short Flare Salwar by Kisneel. The Oblong Gold and Jade Earrings give this festive salwar a modern edge and pick up on the outfit’s kelly green and gold without being too matchy-matchy. It’s definitely a look we could see wearing on a breezy summer afternoon.

We also like the idea of pairing these earrings with a neutral saree to add a flash of color. This Crepe Saree with Inlaid Ribbons is gorgeous and sophisticated on its own, but the pop of jade green from these earrings bring this Grecian goddess look to the next level. The takeaway fashion tip? If you want to make your go-to neutral saree more playful or flirty, use colored accent jewelry like these earrings to add instant visual intrigue.

Love these Oblong Gold and Jade Earrings as much as O, The Oprah Magazine does? There’s more where that came from! Stay tuned this summer for Luxemi’s new accessory collection, which features rings, bangles, collars, necklaces and earrings hand-picked with our Luxe fans in mind.
