AS ANGELINA JOLIE GOES, SO GOES THE ECONOMY
Angelina Jolie usually gets talked about for the things she does, but regarding the Golden Globes, she’s now being talked about for what she DIDN’T do. She didn’t wear visible jewelry. The jewelry industry was bitterly disappointed by the shortage of ostentatious chunky diamond necklaces and earrings at the event. And they were particularly upset by Angelina’s simple, toned down look of long sleeves and no glitzy accessories. Industry insiders are terrified that it will catch on and it’s bad for business. Jewelers really depend on red carpet exposure to stimulate sales.
