The Academy Awards was last night and let’s face it most people watch the show to see what the stars are wearing, not to mention some of the outrageous acceptance speeches and of course the host’s monologues and between awards badinage.
“Mad Max: Fury Road”, was the big winner of the evening with six awards in the technical categories… and “Spotlight” was named Best Picture. But let’s get real: without Googling last year’s winners most of us probably don’t remember that “Birdman” took the top honors last year, taking home the Best Picture prize.
The acting awards are another story and many Academy Award winners have parlayed their wins into lucrative endorsement deals. Last year’s Best Actor winner Eddy Redmayne is now a Brand Ambassador for Omega watches. 2014 Academy Award winner for Best Actress Cate Blanchett is an ambassador for Giorgio Armani, while 2013 Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence is the current face of Christian Dior.
2010 Best Actress winner Kate Winslet has been a brand ambassador for Longines since her win six years ago. In addition, 2005 Oscar winner George Clooney and 2002 Oscar winner Nicole Kidman are also brand ambassadors for Omega Watches as well.
Interestingly, this year’s Best Actor winner Leonardo DiCaprio is currently a brand ambassador for TAG Heuer watches and his relationship with the pre-eminent Swiss watch brand is almost certain to remain for the next several years.
Both of this year’s Best Actress winners Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander, who wore made-to-order gowns by Gucci and Louis Vuitton respectively last night to accept their awards currently, have no endorsement deals, but it would not be big surprise if they become the future faces of these two prominent fashion houses.

Over 280 men’s and women’s timepieces are featured in the promotion, including popular styles from Maurice Lacroix, Baume & Mercier, Michael Kors, Raymond Weil, Graham and Movado, too.
