Gold Reigns Supreme At The 85th Annual Academy Awards

Nicole Kidman, Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kristen Stewart, and Academy Award nominee Kathryn Bigelow among others all select gold jewelry to accent their award gowns

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On the 2013 Oscar red carpet, gold has proven itself to be the most flexible of materials complementing both sweeping glamorous looks and defined directional fashion. Rose gold and diamond jewelry and yellow gold pieces provided hued embellishments to sensual skin toned Oscar gowns, while modern yellow gold jewelry ornamented chic metallic frocks.

Rose gold accented a refreshingly feminine look for Kristen Stewart in a Reem Acra ivory and blush gown. The actress who normally eschews necklaces chose a vintage Fred Leighton rose gold and diamond riviere necklace to adorn her along with a vintage rose gold and diamond ring.

Best Director nominee Kathryn Bigelow's gold and emerald earrings from Neil Lane and gold and emerald snake bangle from Solange Azagury-Partridge were the gilt touch to her jade column gown.

Presenter Nicole Kidman ruled the red carpet in a dazzling black and gold L'Wren Scott sequined gown, finished with statement gold earrings and bracelet from Fred Leighton.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
