On the day after the night before, Chopard is confirmed as the “lucky jeweller of the Oscars” with Olivia Colman, Regina King and Mark Ronson wearing Chopard stunning Haute Joaillerie and Fine Watchmaking creations to receive their Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Song.

In a very discombobulated Awards ceremony, many favourites fell by the wayside and no single film swept the board as in years gone by.

For decades, Chopard, which is also official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, has been celebrating cinematic passion to accompany winners such as Charlize Theron, Hilary Swank, Helen Mirren, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Colin Firth, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey, Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne at the Academy Awards. Hence, their moniker of “Lucky Jeweller of the Oscars” and even a Red Carpet line of jewellery. Truth be told, Chopard is everpresent also at the Césars, BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Emmys.

It’s not easy for first timers at the Academy Awards, especially men because there is more preparation behind the scenes than they would expect. You can’t just roll up onto the red carpet without ‘hair and make-up’ let alone getting suited up and accessorised. Here are rare images from behind-the-scenes in Mark Ronson’s dressing room.
