Emma Stone won Best Actress in La La Land

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, once again, made headlines for a very different reasons this year when La La Land was incorrectly announced as the Best Picture, before Moonlight was clarified to be the winner two minutes after. Nevertheless, there were many awe-inspiring and stunning moments that saw the award presentation of 24 categories at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Televised by ABC in the United States and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the first time, it also saw Moonlight, the first film with an all-black cast to win three awards, including Best Picture. La La Land won the most awards at the ceremony with six after receiving 14 nominations. Hacksaw Ridge and Manchester by the Sea won two awards each. Winners with one award include Arrival, and Where to Find Them, Fences, The Jungle Book, O.J. : Made in America, Piper, The Salesman, Sing, Suicide Squad, The White Helmets, and Zootopia. Emma Stone won Best Actress in La La Land and Casey Affleck as Best Actor in Manchester by the Sea.

The infamous red carpet walk includes Jessica Biel with her metallic gown by Kaufman Franco, Emma Stone’s glamorous golden gown by Givenchy, Ruth Negga in a long-sleeved Valentino gown, Brie Larson looking sexy in a shapely black dress, Viola Davis in her red Armani Prive, and Kirsten Dunst in a Dior gown. As for men, Pharrell Williams was all about Chanel, Sunny Pawar – the actor in Lion – in awesome cuteness with bow tie and yellow kicks, and Casey Affleck’s mountain man look cleans up nicely in Louis Vuitton.

第89届奥斯卡颁奖典礼再次成为焦点新闻,原因竟然是一起乌龙插曲:“爱乐之城” (La La Land) 被误宣布为最佳影片得主,但真正的获奖者应该是“月光男孩” (Moonlight) 。但是,在好莱坞的杜比剧院举行的24个类别奖项的颁奖典礼,依旧有许多令人敬畏和惊叹的时刻。

由美国ABC电视台转播,喜剧演员 Kimmy Kimmel 首次担任主持,而这也是第一部电影是全黑人演员演出,并赢得3个奖项,包括最佳影片。“爱乐之城”也在14项提名中赢得6项大奖。“血战钢锯岭” (Hacksaw Ridge) 和“海边的曼彻斯特” (Manchester by the Sea) 分别获得2个奖项。至于其他获奖者包括“爱乐之城” (Arrival) , “神奇动物在哪里” (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) , “藩篱” (Fences) , “奇幻森林” (The Jungle Book), “辛普森:美国制造” (O.J. : Made in America) , “鹬” (Piper) , “推销员” (The Salesman), “校合唱团的秘密” (Sing), “X特遣队” (Suicide Squad) , 白头盔 (The White Helmets) 和“疯狂动物城” (Zootopia)。演出“爱乐之城”的 Emma Stone 获得最佳女主角,而 Casey Affleck 以 “海边的曼彻斯特”赢得最佳男主角。

而赏心悦目的红地毯服装秀包括 Jessica Biel以 Kaufman Franco 的金属礼服亮相,Emma Stone纪梵希的金色礼服,Ruth Negga 身着长袖华伦天奴礼服,Brie Larson 一件黑色修身连衣裙展现性感,Viola Davis 以红色的Armani Prive 晚装示人,而 Kirsten Dunst却是迪奥的礼服。至于男士们,Pharrell Williams 是全身上下香奈儿,Sunny Pawar – 演出“漫漫回家路” (Lion) 的童星却以可爱的领结现身,Casey Affleck 野性的造型也完美消化路易威登。

Cartier Timeless Treasures 卡地亚隽永无尽的珍宝

The winds of change in the New York air and a new desire for easy elegant gold jewelry inspired the Cartier Mansion workshop to introduce the Love bracelet in 1969. It immediately captured the hearts of long-time clients including the Duchess of Windsor and Elizabeth Taylor and new ones such as movie stars Ali MacGraw and Julie Andrews. A couple of years later, Cartier- New York followed up the instantly iconic Love bracelet with another modern hardware concept, a gold Nail bracelet later named Juste un Clou.

纽约的变化风潮及对于轻奢金饰珠宝的渴望激发了卡地亚旗舰店工作室在1969年推出“Love”经典手镯,当时立即捕获长期拥簇者的心,包括Windsor公爵夫人和Elizabeth Taylor,还有电影明星Ali MacGraw和Julie Andrews。几年后,纽约卡地亚紧随着Love系列这个标志性的作品后,创出另一个超越时代感的概念:Juste un Clou手镯。

Italian-American jewelry designer Aldo Cipullo (1935-1984) liked to subvert everyday objects with humor and affection. This creation was later named Juste un Clou.

“It was the marking of a transition to something totally different which nobody was doing.”

Glamour of the Roman Spirit 罗马精神的魅力

When charisma transcends confidence, femininity and seductiveness, beauty is poised around these reflections of the eyes. Bulgari’s recent exhibit of its “Magnificent Inspirations” High Jewelry Exhibition in Beijing revolves around three exquisite themes: Italian Extravaganza, Mediterranean Eden, and Roman Heritage.

The exhibition saw the attendance of Shu Qi – actress and Bulgari Brand Ambassador; and Carina Lau – actress and Bulgari High Jewelry Ambassador adorn some of the collections most incandescent jewelry with the background setting of the Maison, a place that perfectly matches the jewelry’s exquisite craftsmanship, its bold sense of heritage and the charming autumnal season.

The collection is inspired by the Mediterranean blue that captures the geometry of a sculpted garden, naiveté of a flower petal, and the sensuality of a supple serpent; the Roman sunset pink inspired by charming ancient Rome with the city’s architectural aesthetics and lastly, the ancient age of the golds highlighting the expressive and legendary skill and bold colours of Italian glamour.

 “This is the debut of the Magnificent Inspirations High Jewelry collection in China, following its launch in France. It’s a way to express our appreciation for China,” said Mr. Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of Bulgari Group.

Among those in attendance also include Jean-Christophe Babin CEO of Bulgari Group; Lucia Silvestri Creative Director of Bulgari Jewelry and Antoine Pin Managing Director of Bulgari Greater China.

当魅力超越自信、温柔和诱惑时,美丽将酝酿环绕投射在眼眸。 宝格丽(Bulgari)最近在北京举行的“壮丽之灵感”高级珠宝展览围绕三个精妙主题:意大利式风华,浪漫地中海和古罗马遗迹。

其中作为宝格丽品牌代言人的影星舒淇与高级珠宝形象大使刘嘉玲也盛装出席。而绚丽灯饰与梦幻豪宅背景纵横交错,使瑰丽珠宝和精湛工艺完美匹配,综合古典气息也深化了优美秋季。

这个系列启发于地中海蓝色,并且捕捉花园雕塑的几何形状,纯真的花瓣和柔媚的蛇形;源于迷人古罗马与城市建筑美学的罗马日落粉红系列,最后的意大利风华以古黄金时代彰显传奇技术,配搭大胆色彩。

“这是壮丽之灵感高级珠宝系列的首次亮相,紧接着会在巴黎推介,也表达我们对中国的感激与赞赏。”宝格丽集团首席执行员Jean-Christophe Babin 说。

珠宝展的出席者也包括宝格丽集团首席执行员Jean-Christophe Babin,宝格丽珠宝创意总监Lucia Silvestri和大中华区董事经理平兴韬。
