From jewel tones and smoky eyes to bobs, bangs and pin-straight hairstyles, a slew of new beauty trends dominated the red carpet awards season this year.
All-Out, Old-School Glamour What would a major red-carpet event be without classic, old-style glamour? Oversized updos, enormous buns, major makeup and some serious jewels to top it all off were the name of the game for many. It takes hours to execute a look like this—and that’s exactly the point. “I’m a huge fan of the Old Hollywood look,” says celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, whose clients include Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway and Joy Bryant. “On the red carpet, you want to make a statement. It should look more deliberate than not.” From Gwen Stefani’s Forties-inspired front roll to Mary J. Blige’s updo, Katherine Heigl’s finger waves to Hilary Swank’s one-sided swoop, this year’s old school, Hollywood-style glamour were deliberate winners, never overdone.
