While Anne Hathaway wore a cool ten million dollar Tiffany Lucida Star necklace down the red carpet, queen of the night, Natalie Portman chose a more modest approach. See what these all-American girls chose for this most American of events and how widely in price their choices varied. First of all, hats off to Tiffany for dressing both the queen of the night, Natalie Portman who won an Oscar for Best Actress in "Black Swan", as well as Anne Hathaway who was hosting the event. While Anne Hathaway wore ten million dollars worth of diamonds around her neck and near enough another million between the ring on her finger and her earrings, Portman chose a pair of tassel earrings in more modest rubellite. She also wore a diamond ring on her hand ($63,000) and a pair of gold and diamond Jean Schlumberger design earrings ($9,550) in her hair. Perhaps she chose the feathery earrings because they reminded her of the swan wings that brought her to the red carpet on this occasion. Given that we don't have a price for the rubellite earrings and that my maths is appalling, let's round the figures up and say that Anne Hathaway wore close to 11 million dollars worth of jewels while Natalie Portman wore less than $100,000. Now I might have my knuckles rapped for saying this, but I think that Natalie Portman looked more original in her mauve rubellite earrings. The flash of colour and the movement of those beads caught my eye and immediately had me wondering what they were. Anne Hathaway's diamonds were more predictable and what you could call investment grade jewels, the kind that hold their value and are passed down from generation to generation. Natalie Portman's earrings, though serious jewels, were more of the moment and lighthearted. The difference comes down to the women's personalities. The choice of gems tells me that Natalie Portman likes to have fun while Anne Hathaway is more old-school and traditional. Or maybe it is because Natalie Portman just wanted something to match her mauve dress. Who knows, but it's fun to speculate. And have a think, what would you choose for the night if Tiffany's safe was opened up for you? Are you a Hathaway-style princess or a cool Portman chick? For the record, I would probably come out looking like a Christmas tree.
