The sea of Givenchy dresses aside, last night’s Met gala was as much about beauty as it was about fashion—which shouldn’t be that much of a surprise; after all, punk’s lasting legacy has done just as much for the advancement of black eyeliner and hair color as it has for studs and safety pins. Miley’s spikes, Madonna’s black bob, and Diane von Furstenberg’s epic curls come to mind as some of the evening’s biggest beauty moments, although there was plenty more to talk about—or text about, as it were; we were engaged in a steady stream of phone commentary with no less than three style-savvy friends at once as the chaos and couture unfolded on the red carpet. Below, we’ve listed a few of our favorite punk trends, reimagined for the red carpet—and in face-off form—because while the Met isn’t an awards show, per se, there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.
The Look: Peroxide Goes Platinum
The Contenders: Anne Hathaway vs. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie and her hairstylist, Luke Chamberlain, set out to make a color statement on the red carpet via Chamberlain’s silver-white, spray-in streaks, but the night’s mane event belonged to Anne Hathaway, who showed up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a brand-new, bright blonde dye job. “I decided to go for a look that [was] glam, edgy, and yet very youthful and fun,” celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer explained of the slicked up style she gave Hathaway’s crop, which was freshly bleached courtesy of Marie Robinson.
Nobody loves a theme party quite like the fashion set, which is why tastemakers and Oscar Award-winning actresses alike turned out in full force for Giancarlo Giammetti’s recent Pop Art party at his London home, which was shot by Vanity Fair. We were particularly impressed with Anne Hathaway’s and Margherita Missoni’s interpretations of the Warholian movement, which included some very inventive face-painting skills. Who do you think interpreted the silk-screened effect better?
Jennifer Hudson was my red-carpet favorite last night. (You, Ms. Hudson, are an inspiration to us all). But coming in a close second was Anne Hathaway. I’m not a rabid Hathaway fan, although it was hard not to fall for her flawless Prada halter dress in that gorgeous pale pink satin with the crisscrossed straps in back. It sent the flashbulbs ablaze when the actress arrived at the Dolby Theatre, and images of her and the gown started flooding the Internet. Less photographed, however, were the tiny good-luck charms Hathaway brought along with her: monogrammed nail art. If you looked real close while the Les Mis star clutched her golden statuette throughout most of the evening and its after-parties, you may have made out the two coats of L’Oréal Paris’ forthcoming The Palace of Life shell lacquer from its new limited-edition Versailles Romance Colour Riche nail collection, due out next month, and the fancy script letters celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik etched onto Hathaway’s ring fingers with a metallic silver nail pen, one for each of her grandmothers’ first initials. Best supporting actress, indeed. Thoughts on Anne’s deferential digits?
There are still four days until the Oscars, but Anne Hathaway continues to rack up the statuettes. The Les Mis star brought home the Spotlight Award at the fifteenth annual Costume Designers Guild Awards last night in L.A., which honors actors and directors for their collaborations with costume designers. But if you ask us, Hathaway deserves some kind of beauty award, too. That much-discussed pixie cut aside, she was sporting a commendable cat-eye, which was simultaneously diffused and defined, at the evening affair—no easy feat. We’ll be watching for her (and her makeup artist’s handiwork) on the red carpet come Sunday. Thoughts on Hathaway’s latest nomination-worthy look?
They say the Screen Actors Guild Awards often help clarify the Oscar picture, as Hollywood’s best and brightest are judged by a panel of their peers. If that’s the case, then February 24 should be a big night for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Argo, and strapless floor-length gowns. On the beauty front, the show also seemed to indicate an uptick in side-parted glam waves, neutral lips, and sultry smoky eyes, although there were a few surprises to speak of. Below, we’ve outlined our favorite hair and makeup moments from last night’s festivities and made things a little interesting with some friendly competition. Who do you think won best in beauty?
Statement Lips: January Jones vs. Claire Danes
And the Actor goes to…Claire Danes
January Jones gets points for the Bowie-caliber pompadour that she paired with her precisely lined crimson mouth, but Claire Danes wins this category with a completely out-of-the-box plum-stained pout that bordered on chocolate brown courtesy of a layering effort of Laura Mercier Lip Pencils in Coffee Bean and Deep Wine. Fall’s embrace of the mulberry mouth may be losing steam, but don’t be surprised if Danes’ take on the color inspires a whole new crop of followers.
A Cut Above: Freida Pinto vs. Marion Cotillard
And the Actor goes to…Marion Cotillard
Short cuts have been the big story on the runway and red carpet of late, and the SAGs had a few moments of shear genius to speak of, right on cue. Freida Pinto showed off the beautiful cowl-neck of her lilac Roland Mouret gown with a rolled-under bob that we actually had to do a double take to determine if it was faux or real. There was no such confusion with Marion Cotillard’s freshly chopped locks, however. Worn with a deep side part and featuring slightly asymmetrical front panels, Cotillard’s cut wasn’t just the best short story of the night, it was one of its finest beauty moments, period.
