Many celebrities could afford to buy the jewels and fashions they wear, but they don’t have to. Jewelry designers and diamond dealers loan the pieces in order to gain visibility for their companies, and so do fashion designers. They allow celebrities to choose what they’d like to wear from the inventory the designer wants like to promote. Many of the designers work with multiple celebrities, so they must be careful not to duplicate an item.

Close ups would show off a necklace or earrings. Photos taken at the ceremonies and at parties afterwards will circulate for years-and not just photos of the winners, but of all of the popular celebrities who attend.
