Oscar beauty hits the red-carpet with Hollywood’s starlets pulling out all the stops for the industry’s most glamorous event – and perhaps lending some inspiration for 2011 brides…
Here’s our shortlist of favourite looks this year:
Michelle Williams demonstrated classic beauty; reminisce of Jean Seberg and Mia Farrow. Her makeup was keep fresh and modern with luminous skin, luscious lashes and coral lips.
Anne Hathaway opted for Old Hollywood in Valentino red. She looked stunning on the red carpet with black winged eyeliner, matt red-lips and hair loosely tousled and secured in a bun at the nape of the neck.
Mila Kunis – Natalie Portman may have won in the award-stakes (and so rightly deserved), but we love Mila Kunis’ red carpet look. Wearing a lilac lace-detailed Elie Saab, one of the most beautiful bridal designers, Mila kept the romantic look sultry,with dark defined eyes and soft finger waves finished in a low bun.
Reese Witherspoon – always looking fun and quirky, Reese rocked the sixties I dream of Jeannie look with her high retro pony, statement lashes and nude matt lips. We love her emerald-and-diamond Neil Lane earrings.
Hailee Steinfeld was pretty-in-pink and looking gorgeous in her intricate Marchesa gown. Makeup was kept natural and dewy with raspberry pink lips. We especially love her hair – taking a leaf from Sarah Jessica’s knotted bun from last year’s Oscars, Hailee kept it fresh and age-appropriate with a thin matching headband.
