The award show season is officially upon us, which means gorgeous gowns and trendsetting beauty looks are de riguer on the red carpet. The Golden Globes set the bar pretty high, but the the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, which were held on Saturday, took the glam factor to the max. From the ladies of Nine, shown above, to the rest of Hollywood’s elite, the hairstyles and makeup effects were off the gorgeous charts. Here, our favorite trends:
Old Hollywood Glamour
They say true glamour never goes out of style and in the case of Diane Kruger, Anna Kendrick and Marion Cotillard, this couldn’t be more true. Each of these stunning stars opted for retro, old-school Hollywood vibe, which meant classic, structured updo’s, seriously smoky eyes, lots of lashes and a strong lip look. We think Diane stole the show with her creamy red lip, porcelain skin and sleek hairstyle, but bright-eyed newcomer Anna and French siren Marion were also red carpet standouts with their bold, colorful eyeshadow and side-parted ‘dos.
Soft & Chic
Who knew simplicity could be this gorgeous? Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore and Kyra Sedgwick decided to leave the theatrics at home, opting instead to sport soft, elegant updos and chic, understated makeup. Kyra’s rose lips and loose hairstyle were equal parts age-appropriate and amazing, but it was Kate and Drew’s nude lips, subtle flushes and swept-away hairstyles that had us screaming ecstatically at our TV’s. The combination of modern chicness with romantic softness created the perfect onscreen pair.
It wouldn’t be an awards show without a few bombshell beauties. Penelope Cruz, Deborah Ann Woll and Michelle Monaghan were a certifiable trio of temptresses on the red carpet. All three chose to dramatically sweep their hair to the side, creating a glamorous, statement hairstyle that was equal parts strong and sexy. Combine that with defined eyes, lustrous waves and luscious pouts, and these stars got our vote for the sultry sirens of the SAG’s.
