LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On the 2013 Oscar red carpet, gold has proven itself to be the most flexible of materials complementing both sweeping glamorous looks and defined directional fashion. Rose gold and diamond jewelry and yellow gold pieces provided hued embellishments to sensual skin toned Oscar gowns, while modern yellow gold jewelry ornamented chic metallic frocks.
Rose gold accented a refreshingly feminine look for Kristen Stewart in a Reem Acra ivory and blush gown. The actress who normally eschews necklaces chose a vintage Fred Leighton rose gold and diamond riviere necklace to adorn her along with a vintage rose gold and diamond ring.
Best Director nominee Kathryn Bigelow's gold and emerald earrings from Neil Lane and gold and emerald snake bangle from Solange Azagury-Partridge were the gilt touch to her jade column gown.
Presenter Nicole Kidman ruled the red carpet in a dazzling black and gold L'Wren Scott sequined gown, finished with statement gold earrings and bracelet from Fred Leighton.
