There were some serious fashion hits and a few devastating misses on the red carpet at the Oscars…Let the games begin!
BEST BEAUTIES ON THE CARPET…
Jennifer Lopez—Nobody does the bun better (or has better buns, lol) than Jennifer! With a face like that, she should wear a bun every day…except, she’d probably have no hairline if she did that. But you get what I mean :)
Tina Fey—YAYYYYYY!!!!! So Happy to see Tina Fey with her hair all done up in a dramatic, movie star bun. She’s finally embracing her a-list status and workin’ the cameras. Love itTina!!! See, the funny lady can be FAB!!
Cameron Diaz—The “chic-est shag of the night” award goes to Cameron Diaz! LOVE this light airy hair. The cut has grown out a little since she first debuted it, and its really looking GORG now! Stunning Cameron!
HEAD TO TOE PERFECTION…
Octavia Spencer—This woman (and designer Tadashi Shoji) knows exactly what she’s doing on the red carpet. And its working!!!! Congratulations Octavia on the Oscar win and the fashion coup!
Gwyneth Paltrow—I’ve never seen such a sleek svelte body in stark white!! Gwyneth’s body is SICK!! THIS is how you do high fashion and still look pretty! I love that a gal who’s almost 40 can look this HOT!! BTW: Tom Ford is a design GENIUS!! Thank GOD he’s back!
AND NOW, THE NOT SO PRETTY..
Rooney Mara—Pretty face, ugly hair…what else is there to say?! Oh, and not enough body for the dress either. Tragic!
Viola Davis—I’m just confused. I don’t get why you’d pick NOW to start experimenting with a new hairstyle. I cannot grasp why your hair and face (and lipstick) are almost the same color…congrats for being the first dark skinned woman to look washed out at the Oscars. I don’t understand why Vera Wang can design 3 impeccably fit dresses for Kim Kardashian’s fake wedding, but she sticks poor Viola Davis in an ill-fitting cheap bridesmaid dress from the David’s bridal collection. Like I said…I’m confused. But one thing I know for sure—this whole look was AWFUL!!
The Fall 2012 collections were on display this week in the big apple, and after seeing countless shows and observing all the looks that will rule the racks at stores in the next few months, there were three trends in particular that I really loved!!
The magic of messy hair
The models at the Mara Hoffman show had the coolest coifs of the week! The big, windblown hair was a runway hit, but the look won’t be too difficult to reinterpret for real life. Its refreshing to think that when windy weather sets in again, messy hair will be considered cool. Can’t wait!
Gone are the days of doom and gloom clothing for cold weather. Several designers showed bright bold colors in their fall 2012 collections but Tracey Reese did it best! Her vibrant jewel tones and beautiful textured fabrics are definitely something to look forward to next fall.
Modern Day Mod
Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe staged her very first runway show and it was a smashing success!! Inspired by 60’s rock & roll, the collection channeled Mick Jagger’s rebellious sexy vibe, with a 2012 attitude. The super long, ultra sleek middle-parted hair on the models was so FAB!!!
I’m usually not a fan of black girls going really blond, but I’m actually not mad at Rihanna or Ciara right now. They’ve each put their own two-toned spin on platinum and the results are actually edgy and fun.
The good news is, a wig from high definition hair allows non-rock stars to try this trend without long term commitment or horrifying hair damage! Visit www.highdefinitionhair.com for more information.
Kelly Rowland! Really?!?!?!?!?!! This is how you wear your hair to the Grammy’s?? WTF?!! I can (barely) get over the casual hair not going with the fancy gown, but why are your un-weaved edges tucked under your ear instead of blended into weave??? TRAGIC!
The easiest way to ruin a beautiful dress is with BUSTED HAIR!!! If that was your intention Kelly, then mission accomplished but if not FIRE YOUR HAIR STYLIST IMMEDIATELY!!! This just shouldn’t happen to a Grammy winning superstar :(
The “Future Hair-nista Award” goes to Blue Ivy Carter for being born with a full head of hear, which happens to already shaped into a chic Halle Berry-esque crop! What a cutie!!
Have a beautiful life baby Blue!
We will always love you and miss you…
Ok clearly we’re kind of impartial to longer locks here at HDH Haute, so obviously I was pretty horrified when I first saw Cameron Diaz’s new haircut. I thought “has this girl lost her mind ?!?!”. But I have to admit, after seeing the way she’s creatively found ways to switch it up and make it look different every night that she’s been in Paris for the shows, I’m starting to feel a little less worried. I was really loving her hair at that just past the shoulder length but, its gone and this isn’t THAT bad. And at least she’s found ways to have fun with it and make it chic in that quirky Cameron way.
So, good luck Cameron, I wish you a speedy grow-out. And if you grow bored of your new short cut, check out highdefinitionhair.com. You can have super long luxurious locks in a flash! And without the stress of adding hair extensions (which I know screwed up your hair in the first place, hence the cut).
I’m usually super tough on Angelina Jolie. While most people look at her and, by default, still delusionally see her as the hot & sexy vixen she was back in Lara Croft days, to me she’s been looking pale, bony, and like she’s been run ragged by her twenty five kids. Having said all that, I believe in giving credit where it’s due and I’ve been PLEASANTLY surprised this award season by Ms. Jolie’s upgrade. Not only have her dresses been TIGHT, her hair and makeup are the best they’ve been in quite some time and her skin has been absolutely radiant.
Her hair in particular though, which I usually find to look unkempt (and frankly kind of thin), has been looking exceptionally beautiful and totally effortless at the same time. BRAVO Angelina!! I still think you could use a spray tan and a sandwhich, BUT you’re looking pretty swell. Keep up the good work (PLEASE).
Of all the young starlets trying to establish themselves as true Hollywood beauties, Keke Palmer is leading the race. Although still making that [sometimes difficult] transition from child star to grown-up actress, Keke has the spirit and the confidence to rock super long extensions with ease.
Whoever’s caring for her hair is using what looks like really quality extensions—her hair is full and bouncy and not overly shiny and artificial looking. Good Job Keke! Can’t wait to see how your look progresses as your star continues to rise.
