Easy and effortless looks ruled the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards. Many actresses sported the sleek pixie cut that is so hot right now. Charlize Theron, Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence led the chic short-hair brigade.
Those with long hair flaunted it. Jessica Biel, Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner and Cate Blanchett all wore their lengthy locks loose and lightly textured. The look was relaxed yet still striking and provided a dramatic contrast to their couture evening gowns.
Most actresses also abandoned the bright red lipstick that has always been common on the Oscar carpet. Instead, stars opted for shimmering metallic eye shadows, fresh golden skin and nude or rose-colored lips that didn’t take anything away from the mostly pale and pastel-colored gowns. While Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyong’o & Margot Robbie choose deep berry hues for their lips.
And this year, statement nails were left out of the glamour equation, with stars sporting nude and natural colors on short or medium-length, egg-shaped nails.
