HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA: Acclaimed filmmaker Baz Luhrmann made a spectacular entrance at the 2023 Oscars on March 12, Sunday. The 60-year-old posed for photos with his wife Catherine Martin and daughter, Lillian, wearing a $263,000 necklace from David Webb.
“Elvis” received eight nominations, including Best Picture, Best Costume Design for Catherine Martin and Best Actor for Austin Butler. Martin, who is nominated for best costume design in her husband’s film, wore an iridescent blue sequin dress with cream trim. Lilly wore a rose gold sequin dress with a tulle neckline and smiled for photos with her parents.

Who designed Baz Luhrmann’s necklace?
Luhrmann turns heads wearing the huge necklace over a crisp white shirt for accent. The pendant has black enamel set with brilliant cut diamonds bordering a carved jade plate. Webb, who designed the necklace, called the stunning piece an “elegant statement of sophistication” and shared her photo on Instagram with a caption, “A carved jade pendant necklace surrounded by graphic black enamel and diamonds. An elegant statement of sophistication.”
Did Bas Luhrmann’s “Elvis” win an award?
The Best Actor contest between Austin Butler, who played the titular character in ‘Elvis’, and Brendan Fraser in ‘The Whale’, was very close. Many thought Butler would beat Fraser at the Oscars. In the end, Fraser took home the trophy. Very few expected Luhrmann’s biopic to perform so poorly overall. He lost in all eight categories for which he was nominated, including Best Hair and Makeup, where he was the frontrunner, according to the New York Post.
