Chopard is Red Hot on the Red Carpet!Print
Swiss jeweler Chopard once again showed their “golden touch” at the 87th Academy Awards, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) on February 22, 2015.
Bold earrings from the glamorous watch and jewelry company were all over the red carpet, with Best Actress nominees Marion Cotillard and Julianne Moore (who went home with Oscar), as well as presenter Lupita Nyong’o (the Best Supporting Actress winner last year), wearing pieces of Chopard High Jewelry. Additionally, the winner in the Best Actor category, Eddie Redmayne, sported a platinum Chopard L.U.C. XPS watch.
Fancy-cut joillaire and statement watches from Chopard are no strangers to the red carpet. Stars of the screen and those working behind-the-scenes have been wearing original, refined creations from the designer and winning big for more than a decade! Best actress winners who took the statuette home while bedecked in Chopard jewelry include Moore, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren, Hilary Swank and Charlize Theron. In addition to Nyong’o, Mo’Nique, Penelope Cruz and Rachel Weisz garnered Best Supporting Actress statuettes while in Chopard, as did Best Actor winners Matthew McConaughey and Colin Firth, and Best Director Michel Hazanavicius. At the 2012 ceremony, Chopard even “went to the dogs,” with a custom-designed collar with a black satin bow tie and 18kt yellow gold charm for Uggie, the canine star of “The Artist,” later auctioned off with proceeds benefiting an animal rescue organization.
The glamorous watch and jewelry company is one of the film industry’s biggest supporters, having established long-term relationships with actors, actresses and others who work in the business. Chopard has been the official partner of the Cannes International Film Festival since 1989, redesigning the cultural event’s Palme d’Or; and has shown a presence at the César’s, British Academy of Film and Television Film Awards (BAFTA); and Golden Globes, in addition to The Oscars.
Chopard and members of the film industry obviously have a “mutual admiration society.” While Chopard may be viewed as a “lucky” line for Oscar nominees, Chopard is fortunate to have so many industry insiders as fans.
