Sandra Bullock and Mo’Nique were the big winners at the Oscars… and not just for taking home the golden statues. Sandra, dressed exquisitely in a golden Marchesa gown with vintage beading, and Mo’Nique in a royal blue Tadashi Shojhe, also took home the Access Hollywood honor of being named our newest Style Stars.
The two Oscar winners lit up the red carpet at the Academy Awards with their designer gowns, enhanced with very personal accessories and touches.
Sandra sparkled in diamonds that were a gift from her husband, Jesse James.
“[My earrings are] from my husband. Vintage Tiffany like 1910… 1918,” Sandra told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on the red carpet.
“Your husband bought the jewels? So you don’t have to return them?” Billy asked.
“I don’t,” Sandra said with a smile.
Mo’Nique also wore a very sentimental accessory – a white flower in her hair as a tribute to Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Academy Award.
“Hattie wore a gardenia the night she won the Oscar,” Mo’Nique told Billy.
“I know you’re fascinated with her story. I know you own the rights, don’t you, to her story?” Billy asked.
“I think once that story comes out, we’ll all be fascinated with the dynamic woman that Hattie McDaniel was and she will get the proper justice that she should have gotten. Because what she did for this industry is amazing.” Monique added.
