Beyoncé Stuns the Oscars Red Carpet with 400 Carats of Diamonds
Will Smith’s bizarre outburst notwithstanding, few noteworthy things happened at the Oscars this year. Beyoncé, as usual, managed to create some red carpet buzz as she arrived “with a pair of tennis ball-colored dresses (one citron, one lime) and almost 400 carats of diamonds,” IDEX Online reports.
The 40-year-old superstar wore shoulder-length earrings by Lorraine Schwartz featuring seven rows of diamonds, weighing in at 150 carats. She also had a pair of 150-carat diamond bangles and two diamond rings – a 50-carat emerald-cut stone and a 20-carat cushion-cut gem.
According to the report, Beyoncé “switched costumes between her performance of Be Alive from the King Richard movie, and the awards ceremony on Sunday night, sporting a pair of huge circular diamond drop earrings, and a rhinestone garter around her left thigh.”
