Lily Collins (Met Gala 2019)

As an heir to rock royalty, Lily Collins knows a thing or two about dressing to impress. At the 2019 Met Gala she rocked a Cartier Magnitude High Jewellery necklace that sparkled with emeralds, rock crystal, onyx, black lacquer and diamonds.

In a scenario straight out of hit movie Ocean’s 8, Lily later revealed that the necklace had its own security guard and one-of-a-kind key for taking it off safely. No-one ever said looking this stylish would be simple...

Jennifer Lopez (2011 Golden Globes)

She told us not to be fooled by the rocks that she’s got in her 2002 anthem ‘Jenny from the Block’. With this many glittering diamonds on display however, it’s honestly hard to think straight about anything. 

At the 2011 Golden Globes, J-Lo wowed us with a stunning combo of diamond cluster earrings, a 7-carat diamond ring and a bracelet featuring over 600 diamonds. With over $5 million of jewellery on display, she showed us how to shine like a true superstar.

Nicole Kidman (2008 Oscars)

Her unusual ‘seal clapping’ at the 2017 Oscars had everyone talking before she revealed she’d simply been trying to protect an outrageously expensive diamond ring.  However, we want to rewind a little further to celebrate iconic actress Nicole Kidman’s finest hour on the red carpet.

Back in 2008, she stunned the world by setting off her Balenciaga dress with an exquisitely beautiful necklace by L’Wren Scott. Set with more than 7,000 diamonds, this custom-made $7 million piece is rumoured to have taken 6,200 hours to create.

Beyoncé (2017 Grammys)

Six years after telling us girls run the world, Beyoncé was every inch a vision of pop royalty as she took home two awards at the 59th annual Grammy Awards. The multi-talented star also performed two tracks from her album Lemonade — all while pregnant with twins.

Wearing an eye-catching red sequin dress by Peter Dundas, the ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ star lit up the stage in a dazzling 400-carat diamond necklace by Lorraine Schwartz. Beyoncé may have lost out to Adele for best album, but she proved she was unmatched in the style stakes.

Cate Blanchett (2014 Oscars)

Celebrating her Oscar win for Best Actress in style, Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett showed she can compete with the very best when it comes to killer red carpet looks. Donning a sequined Armani gown at the 2014 Academy Awards, she completed the look with some elegant jewels.

The Australian actress opted for Chopard jewellery for her big night, including drop earrings with 62 white opals set in white gold and diamond pavé. All together, her extraordinary ensemble added up to around $18 million worth of award-worthy style.

Gloria Stuart (1998 Oscars)

Showing that age is no boundary to embracing bling, Titanic actress Gloria Stuart arrived at the 1998 Academy Awards in a very special piece of jewellery. Crafted by Harry Winston, this stunning diamond necklace features an imposing sapphire as its centrepiece.

The actress could barely contain her delight as she showed off the piece, reminiscent of the famous necklace from the film, which was valued in excess of $20 million. We’re pretty sure that’s more ice than was on show in the movie’s tragic ending...

Lady Gaga (2019 Oscars)

When it comes to timeless sophistication, you can’t go far wrong by channeling Audrey Hepburn. However, the multi-talented Lady Gaga went the extra mile to emulate the silver screen icon at the 2019 Oscars.

The singer and actress stunned the red carpet by showing off a yellow diamond from the Tiffany & Co vault, paired with matching earrings worth an extraordinary $69 million. We’re sure someone will top this look one day, but it’ll take something very special — the challenge is on!
