Oscars 2010: The Best Red Carpet Earrings

It's all flash, flash! and bling! bling on the Red Carpet! It's time for BeadSnob's Annual Oscar Bling roundup!

First on our Oscar red carpet is Rachel McAdams who's back to being blonde. 

Rachel McAdams dons earring elegance with these large intricate multi-layer plates studded in multi-colored diamonds by Lorraine Schwartz.

Lorraine Schwartz, Jewelry Designer to the stars doesn't have an online shop, she prefers you call and be one of her private clientele. 

Rachel McAdams is a walking canvas in a flowing Elie Saab watercolor gown.

Holy mother of pearl! Opulent teardrop chopards fit for a Queen Latifah

Our curvy highness in a Badgley Mischka single-strap baby plum gown. Note the adornment of gemstones on the lovely strap.

Elizabeth Banks complements her floral gemstone studded earrings with a classy, yet simple diamond studded headband. All from jeweler Fred Leighton.

Her gown is almost the same hue as McAdams and has the same ruffle motif as all the Versace Atelier dresses on the red carpet. Still fierce though! 


Demi Moore looking luscious with these hand-strung multi-strand ivory pearl earrings.

Another Versace Atelier ruffles and frills maven, but the most stunning one on the red carpet. She is my Oscar fave even without her gorgeous arm candy Ashton Kutchner. 

Demi is radiant in this intricately layered gown that seamlessly blends into her skin tone.

Fabulous under the stage lights. Demi Moore rocks it!

Cameron is gorgeous for her age and she is aging wonderfully. Her earrings are Cartier's trinity circle earrings in white and yellow diamonds crafted on rose gold. Overall, I am not a fan of this look, kinda gives me that rich Texan oiler's wife vibe.

However, her Oscar de la Renta dress embelished in silver and sparkles is to die for.

And best pair of earrings on Oscar night goes to British actress Carey Mulligan.

Artfully inspired ornate diamond briolette earrings by Fred Leighton.

Shia LaBeouf's pixie dream is all gamine gorgeous in Prada. This black ensemble is adorned in silver trinkets such a knives, forks and spoons. Quirky and charming much like Carey herself.

Arts & Crafts Supply Stores in Manila

I was wondering if you know of any other craft supply stores?

The kinds which sell imported stuff like Mod Podge, fusible interfacing (or Heat and Bond), stuff like that...I mainly do paper crafts lie Print Gocco and some handsewing and crocheting.

A few years back there was a crafts store at the basement level of Robinsons Galleria that sold Mod podge and crackle finishes. But I think they have closed since then. But luckily, a blogger left a post about it on Beadsnob, the Craft store called Craft World is now located at SM Megamall (building A, beside Toy Kingdom). Awesome! Time renew my crackle finishes for my decoupages :)
