It’s Oscar week in Los Angeles, which means stylists are working frenetically to put together the perfect look for nominees, presenters, and partygoers, there are nightly soirees feting the stars and designers, and we guess there will be some awards handed out on Sunday night. On Thursday, we attended LoveGold’s sparkling cocktail party honoring awards show staple Fred Leighton.
Celebrities including actresses Victoria Justice, Gloria Reuben (from Oscar-nominated flick Lincoln), and Sanaa Lathan came out to admire some of the jeweler’s most iconic looks. Our favorite piece on display was the tiny gold evening purse 2008 Oscar nominee Amy Adams memorably wore with a strapless emerald green Proenza Schouler. The jeweled gold bracelets Tilda Swinton paired with an ice blue metallic Haider Ackermann mermaid skirt suit for the 2012 Golden Globes likewise left us starry-eyed.
Justice, best known for Nickelodeon’s Victorious and last year’s teen comedy Fun Size, also had stars in her eyes. “I love Fred Leighton—it’s stunning,” she told us, adding that she likes to mix the old with the new, and looks to her mom for vintage jewelry inspiration. The 20-year-old actress/singer said that although designers have recently started sending her clothes, she is still finding her fashion footing. “I have really eclectic tastes,” she said. “I’m still really figuring [fashion] out.” However, Justice weathered Nemo to attend New York Fashion Week this month, with DKNY and Alice + Olivia standing out as favorites.
