The Oscar ceremony may not take place until Sunday, but the celebrations have officially begun in Tinseltown. Bulgari, along with host Naomi Watts, celebrated red-carpet style across the ages last night at the Soho House. The brand brought together a bevy of starlets, including Olivia Munn, Emmy Rossum, and Dianna Agron, to pay homage to Hollywood glamour. Among a crowd that included Ashley Greene and Erin Wasson, guests eyed the oversize images lining the perimeter of the garden terrace, featuring celebrated actresses adorned in Bulgari bijoux. But not all thought was just about baubles—the impending red carpet was top of mind, too. "I hope there are bold choices that are made, because it's been a bit bland," Camilla Belle said. "I hope someone comes up with something very exciting, colorful, and fashion forward."

Representing one of this weekend's biggest contenders were American Hustle's Elisabeth Röhm and Jeremy Renner, who came to fete 130 years of Bulgari and settled into a back corner alongside Kate Hudson. Photographed amid the vitrines of archival and heritage gems, Watts, wearing a brilliant choker by the brand, reflected on the jewelry's timeless quality: "They're bold, dramatic, but not over the top. They've been around for such a long time, and yet their older stuff still stands up today," she said, admiring a picture of friend Nicole Kidman's own Bulgari moment overhead. But as an attendee of Sunday night's main event, Watts admitted she's yet to decide on a dress. "It's so hard to choose jewelry before the dress because that's obviously such a big part of it," she confessed. "If the dress doesn't look good, then the necklace doesn't get the right moment."
