Oscar’s Best Beauty Hits... And Some Misses!

The best part of the Oscars, is that we’re all invited to the after-party.  You know, the time after the awards when we rip certain celebs apart for their bad taste or clamor for the hottest dress or hairstyle.  It’s all in good fun, because in Hollywood, award ceremonies or Project Runway; one day you’re in and the next day you’re out!  Here are some of my best/worst picks for the night.

Lets start off with men. Boring! I can’t really say there was a worst dressed, because I don’t believe there was.  The closest I’d get was Bradley Cooper’s hair. I love his hair slicked back, but not sure about shellacked back.  The other hair loser was Eddie Redmayne.  His hair was a cross between a Gotti boy, Jersey shore and a True Bood, SNL spoof. The best looking men were the ones who actually brought some color and life to the carpet.  Daniel Day Lewis rocked a Domenico Vacca blue tux.  Normally this would look tacky, but his stature, hair and skin color really complement the blue.  My other pick for best-dressed male is Stephen Marinaro, aka, TheSalonGuy, who was on the other side of the mike for the night.  His brown and black suit by Malan Breton really stood out, showed some personality and rose to the elegant occasion.

Best Dressed

Jessica Chastain – Killer curves in Armani Prive.  Veronica lake hair, perfect skin color and red lip to brighten her face. A step above monotone makes it classic, timeless beauty expected to be at the Academy Awards.

Jenna Dewan’s black lace dress was perfect with her baby bump.  Open back for some sex appeal and a perfect v cut in front.

2013 Oscar’s Best Beauty Hits... And Some Misses~Quvenzhane Wallis
Quvenzhane Wallis’ cute puppy purse was perfect for her and she seemed to really love it.  It was great to see some fun and personality.

Best Makeup

2013 Oscar’s Best Beauty Hits... And Some Misses~Queen Latifah
Queen Latifah always has great makeup, so I was glad she moved away from her usual neutral lips to a bright berry.
Shirley Bassey knocked it out of the park. Super glam.
Jennifer Chastain makeup was angelic.  Her makeup artist really deserves an award because it’s very difficult to bring all those colors together and not make her look like a clown. Red lips, shimmer apricot blush, red/ginger hair, flawless.

Best Hair

2013 Oscar’s Best Beauty Hits... And Some Misses~Shirley Bassey
Shirley Bassey’s hair looked very natural, shiny and voluminous without being tortured into place.
Jennifer Chastain resembled Veronica Lake.  Soft, beautiful waves but not crunchy.  The color was shiny, vibrant and not fake looking which can happen when you move into the red hues.

Worst Host

Piers Morgan was asking everyone to give him their best loser face when they lose in their category.  Ewww, so awkward and celebrities had no idea what to do.

Worst Overall

 2013 Oscar’s Best Beauty Hits... And Some Misses~Helena Bonham Carter
Helena Bonham Carter – Very Miserables and a hot mess. Bad hair, bad dress.  Looks like she stepped out of the flower market from My Fair Lady.  She has that crazy, homeless lady look and it’s a shame because she does have a very pretty face and could easily be in the best category if done right.

Best Overall

For me, the show-stopper was 76 year young, Shirley Bassey, She brought it all to the stage.  Hair, makeup, dress, shoes, jewelry.  That was a lot of look to pull of and she did it with grace, elegance and ease.  Glorious and can’t wait to see her in concert.

Biggest Question of the Night

Watching these awards every year, I keep wondering one thing. When are they going to have someone at the bottom of the stairs to help all the women get to the top?
