5. Saoirse Ronan

Talk about standing out from the crowd! Saoirse Ronan made a statement on the red carpet by choosing to wear mismatched Chopard earrings with her gorgeous Calvin Klein sequin dress. One earring was made with pearls and the other one was 18 carats of emeralds and jadeites. Both earrings were set in 18 carat white gold. Although mismatched, the earrings still looked glamorous with her Oscar ensemble.
