Oscar Hair: The Long and Short of It

The stars in the sky were shinning down on the Oscar women and their magpie bling. They were beaming brighter than the stage lights. Sophistication and stateliness was combined with beauty and women-power.

From Charlize Theron's cropped cut to Jessica Chastain's long spun gold hair to everything inbetween the top looks screamed individuality...

1. Jessica Chastain was flawless in her monochromatic Oscar gold
2. Charlize Theron, the modern Greek goddess whose statuesque appearance stunned everyone. 
3. Anne Hathaway was simply sassy, unique and chic. 
4. Jane Fonda was a "neo"- classic. Everyone should draw inspiration from her.

Oscar Presence 2013

Hair: circa 30s, 40s and 60s
From cascading waves, to statuesque short hair, to Jennifer Lawrence's chingon, the Oscar women all looked outstandingly beautiful. Halle Berry made her own statement with her deco look and juxtaposed punk rock hair. Oscar hair had certainty. 

Dresses: the brighter shades of pale 
Pale hues were popular from limoges whites to buffs and pale bronze. Anne Hathaway wore a pale pink crystal champagne dress inspired by Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina. We can't forget about all the sparkle-plenty gowns that walked the red carpet: Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Adele, Stacy Keibler, and to top it off, Barbra Streisand beaming with a golden light from above. 

Makeup: Zoning 
The women of the night were zoning makeup. If the lips were soaked in a deep grenadine red, the eye makeup faded into a fleshy tone with lots of lashes. If the lips were pale pink and beige, the eyes faded to black. The news for men was makeup - groomed beards.
