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.

In other Chanel beauty news, despite Brad Pitt’s memorable solo performance in the brand’s latest wave of ads for its iconic No. 5 fragrance, the E.U.’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety is bent on taking the classic flacon down a peg. The use of tree moss and oak moss, which provides the eau with its signature, woodsy aroma, is at risk of being outlawed as it has wound up on a list of 100 possible allergens that are potentially harmful to consumers.

Snooki debuts her second fragrance this week—as well as her first entry into the nail category. That’s right, ladies. Even Snooki has launched a line of lacquers as the great nail boom of the late aughts continues. [Wetpaint]

If you thought it was too early for fall-favorite makeup like warm apricot blush and a deep berry lipstick, Rose Byrne begs to differ. The Damages star showed up to the series’ season 4 premiere in New York last night sporting both for an autumnal look in the dead of summer. Since winning us over in a major way with her starring turn in Bridesmaids, we’re of the mind that Byrne can do no wrong—especially since her filled-in brows and heavy chestnut fringe look amazing with a full face of color. Disagree? Correct us if we’re wrong below.
We’re not going to pretend to know who Rose Byrne is, outside of the fact that she’s on Damages, a show we’ve never seen (but have heard good things about). We will, however, fully admit to knowing plenty about her recently cut bangs, which mesmerize us every time she turns up on the red carpet. Her appearance at last night’s New Museum Spring Gala in New York, where she accessorized her signature mod fringe and blunt-cut clavicle-grazing brunette tresses with a Calvin Klein Collection dress, was no exception. Here’s the secret of her success: To get that perfect forehead curvature that properly utilizes the weight of the fringe, you need to curl the ends ever so slightly, applying heat to a round brush. Sure, that may sound like a gratuitous extra step, but this is the kind of reward you’ll reap. Which look do you think is her best?
