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.
As we count down to the Golden Globes—a ceremony that, in all of its booze-fueled glory, kick-starts awards season—many have begun to formulate their own predictions for who will occupy the winner’s circle in both the acting and the just as highly contested style categories. Before we look forward, however, we thought it would be far more informative to peer back at a dozen of this year’s female nominees to decide which of their former Golden Globes cameos is the most memorable. And so, without further ado, allow us to present the Golden Globes Beauty Hall of Fame, which will be welcoming a new class this Sunday. Click here for a slideshow.
The Mission: Give Anne Hathaway a “slick and chic” look for her homecoming at the New York premiere of Les Misérables.
The Face Painter: Celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee
The Face: To create a “truly flawless” complexion, Lee went for a velvety finish with Chanel Perfection Lumière Long Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10. Cheeks were given a subtle apricot glow courtesy of Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Praline.
The Eyes: Looking for a “shimmery, wet-looking effect when [Hathaway] blinked,” Lee dusted Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme, a frosted pearl, across her lids, brushing on a thick coat of its Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir on top and bottom lashes before placing a strip of individual lashes along the upper lash line “to add shape and volume.” Lee spent an equal amount of time beefing up Hathaway’s brows, which she filled in with Anastasia Brow Powder and then set with its clear Brow Gel.
The Lips: The focal point of the look was Fall’s favorite bordeaux pout, which Lee custom-blended using three different colors: Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Noir and Palpitante, and “a touch” of its Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Somptueuse.
The Result: A Best Actress award in the beauty department—and a preview of what’s to come when awards season begins next month.
