20 Of The Best Academy Awards 2017 Beauty Looks

EMMA Stone, Olivia Culpo, Taraji P. Henson and so many more of Hollywood’s biggest stars looked stunning at the Academy Awards last night. What was your favourite beauty look of Oscar night? These are our 20 favourites.

Olivia Culpo

Former Miss USA Olivia Culpo accented her gown with super dramatic purple eye make-up and a mauve, matte lip.

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson’s two toned bob was styled by Tymothe Wallace using Dove hair products.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry ditched her usual short hairstyle for big, wild curls — a stunning departure.

Sofia Boutella

Fellow “Star Trek Beyond” actress Sofia Boutella went for fun feathers and paired it with an even funner microfringe. We predict this will be a huge trend in 2017.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron rocked a sleek ponytail and luminous skin.

Priyanka Chopra

“Quantico” actress Priyanka Chopra‘s make-up artist made her up with one of her favourite accents: berry lips and her hairstylist styled her tressses sleek and straight.

Scarlett Johannson

We need more risks like Scarlett Johannson’s edgy pixie cut on the red carpet.

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts rocked her gorgeous red hair in retro waves, and a bold red lip.

Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe appeared in two of the year’s hit films: “Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures.” On the red carpet, we were crushing on her beautiful hair accessory.

Ruth Negga

Ruth Negga (best actress nominee for “Loving”) stood out in fire-engine red. We’re not just talking about the dress, but lips and eyes too. Talk about going all out!

Alicia Vikander

Alicia Vikander (last year’s winner for best supporting actress) kept her make-up simple with her signature glowing skin. But her hair was beautiful casual in a loose, dishevelled bun.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman‘s red lips popped with her pale gown and fair skin.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen rocked a romantic updo that’s super easy to copy.

“Moonlight” actress Naomie Harris wore a crisp white gown, which shifted the focus to her burgundy eye make-up.

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld’s pompadour and pink pout surprisingly makes her floral dress look utterly edgy.

The 20 Best Oscar Beauty Looks

Emma Stone’s burnt red lip colour will be one you should invest in for this year.

Kelly Ripa

TV personality Kelly Ripa chose to wear a wob. Still a trend come winter 2017.

Ava Duvernay

Director Ava Duvernay walked the red carpet in a romantic gray gown and her faux locs was the perfect compliment

Viola Davis

Viola Davis was glowing thanks to Celebrity Aesthetician Olga Lorencin’s Red Carpet Facial.
