Keri Russell Comes in a Close Second to Kidman on Oscar Night

Keri Russell was just out and out beat in terms of carat count by Nicole Kidman, but I would argue that Russell would win for most appropriate amount of dripping diamonds. 

I say “appropriate,” because I’ve come to expect such outlandish displays, a la Dame Elizabeth Taylor, from Nicole Kidman. 

Now, had Russell showed up with 1399 cts. t.w. I probably would’ve thought, “Who does Keri Russell think she is, Elizabeth Taylor?” Honestly.

I think for the organza dress that she wore, which was by Nina Ricci, this H.Stern, vintage, floral, 46 cts. t.w. necklace, comprised of 405 marquis diamonds, which was taken from the private vault of Hans Stern, is fully appropriate and plays up her slight features with how it sprinkles diamonds across her chest.Russell’s Floral Diamond Earrings are also by H.Stern.

I say two thumbs up to her stylist Elizabeth Stewart (Stewart also dressed Cate Blanchett and Calista Flockhart)!

Think I’m a fashion genius?

Totally disagree?
