Less is More at the Oscars 2012.

This year…

And this year, contrary to what one might think about the glitzy Hollywood affair, wearing the right accessories doesn’t always mean dripping in diamonds, the experts say.

“Jewelry should be minimalistic – the dress should be the ‘celebrity,’ so to speak,” said fashion designer Allen B. Schwartz.

Sandra Bullock stunned in her gold beaded Marchesa gown with an embroidered bodice when she won best actress in 2010. She capped the look by wearing delicate diamond drop earrings and bracelet, along with a silver clutch. The accessories served to highlight her shimmering gown and radiant face without overpowering the actress, making Bullock appear polished and every inch the Hollywood movie star she is.

“We’re moving towards a very minimal period of accessorization,” said designer Marc Bouwer. “If people are going to wear something, it’s going to be one strong piece or almost nothing at all.”

We just think Maria’s hot.
