Last week, we wondered if this awards season would see more subdued, recession-appropriate looks on the red carpet. It's always hard to tell if the Golden Globes is an accurate predictor of anything, but we did note that nobody showed up wearing a barrel last night. In fact, the jewelry seemed bigger and flashier (and, in terms of Amy Adams's demented leaf earrings, crazier) than usual. Glam Chic has pulled together a bunch of photos of massive chandelier earrings (Kate Beckinsale's were roughly the size of softballs), all of which lead us to believe that contrary to predictions, this awards season is going to be a sparkly one.
