While they didn't win an Oscar Swarovski Crystal was the star of the show.
The Academy Awards is a momentous occasion when all the stars in Hollywood come out to celebrate the best performances from the past year. Everyone is dressed to the nines and nothing but the best will do for the red carpet parade. So how do you make the grandest stage of them all shine like nothing else before? How about 41,000 Swarovski Crystals!


Renowned set designer and Emmy award winner David Korins spared no expense for the 91st annual Academy Awards. His breath taking design featured a 1,600 pound floating crystal cloud adorned with over 1,000 crystals sparkling above the stage. Another key feature of the design is the crystal swag, a stunning three story high ribbon like formation that flows rhythmically and is adorned with over 400 strands of crystals that appeared to be a waterfall flowing up into the sky. David's vision was, "... to create abstract and organic shapes that make the audience and stage feel as one, representing a feeling of inclusivity." 


This enormous undertaking took over 2,100 hours of effort from 15 people working around the clock to create. After seeing the results we can say that this labor of love was worth every second. Well done Swarovski, well done indeed!
