Beauty and the Bling at the Oscars

The talk of the night was Anne Hathaway’s gown, and let’s say… The upper bits. There was all sort of chatter on social media about said parts, even spawning multiple twitter accounts. Other than being able to see what one would view on the beach in the south of France, I thought the gown was absolutely stunning. A pink Prada that was to die for from the back, accented with that amazing Tiffany necklace. I am going to go to bat for her. I thought she looked amazing. The “titillating” faux pas couldn’t dissuade me from giving her my wink and a nod. 

Jennifer Lawrence took Dior Couture to another level. Accented by diamonds by the yard down the back, instead of the front gave the ensemble a bit of surprise. And surprise she did when she stumbled up the stairs tripped by her mounds of fabric. She was just following Naomi Campbell’s trip (and fall) years ago at Paris’s fashion week. Maybe she wanted to take the spotlight (or should we say headlight?) off of Anne’s bust. Anyway, she was adorable and covered it with beautiful resilience. We love her! 

Kerry Washington made the red carpet pop with her coral Miu Miu strapless gown. She looked radiant. Others wore red, but the Django Unchanged co-star undoubtedly wore it best. Pay attention, here are my insider secrets on how to get her look! Makeup Artist Carola Gonzalez used the embellishments on the dress as her inspiration and the result was ethereal, with just a hint of color.

The foundation was a sheer glow and she used Giorgio Armani Maestro #10 and coupled it with Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #11. The blush was Lancome Blush Subtil in Brilliant Berry.

The eyes were smokey but natural, and Gonzalez used Lancome Color Design 5-Pan Shadow & Liner Palette in Sienna Sultry. She topped the eyes off with Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara.

The lips were soft and natural in Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro 202 and Lancome Rouge in Loe in Rose Boudoir.

The Oscars were fantastic and everyone looked stunning. I am dashing to the makeup counter as we speak to grab the above colors, hitting Prada and Dior. Already setting sites on next year – and I’ll let Anne borrow my Victoria’s Secret credit card.

Ciao for now,
