As I mentioned in the Golden Globe Fashion Report, I favor the Oscar warm up due to celebs being a bit more carefree on the carpet. The dress is vital, but so is hair and makeup. They can make or break a look easily.
Nicole Richie accented her Naeem Khan gown with a matching icy baby blue hue. She used Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Single in Sky to make a statement while down playing her lips. Smart girl! Claire Danes was a vixen on the carpet. She had a heavy lined smokey eye that drew your attention to her perfect peepers. It was complimented by an easy bouncy wave do’ that looked sexy without being overdone.
In one word…BIG. Volume has regained power over the stick straight flat ironed look. I couldn’t be more excited. I was fan of the sleek, but I LOVE the return of body. Just about every star pumped up their hair with some blow out inspiration. Waves were also a repeated trend. Jessica Alba and Rachel Weisz were two of the front runners with the tamed tresses. (I hope Alba’s lipcolor wasn’t that orange on in person!)
Leave vanilla French Tips and neutral tones to the past. Bust out your bold colors and fun designs. Zooey Deschanel rocked it with her mani. The ‘New Girl’ star decked her nails out with a retro film strip nail art! It was fun and fresh along with being playful. It suits her perfectly.
