Oscars 2012 Red Carpet Beauty

Tuesday, 28 February 2012

On Sunday, celebrities and film stars graced the red carpet with their astounding gowns and designer outfits. Perfectly positioned hair and painted lips made these stars look lovely, don’t you agree? Here’s who BeautySouthAfrica.com thought looked the part.

Oscars 2012

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star, Rooney Mara definitely stood out from the crowd. With her white Givenchy gown, jet black hair and red lips, Rooney is never one to opt for subtle style.

Emma Stone got it so right this year. Her crimson-red Giambattista Valli gown was enough of a statement thanks to the oversized neck bow (which, frankly, we’re not entirely sure about). Her hairstyle, which was a simple bun and front side parting, seemed to tone her whole look down. With a simple sweep of liquid liner creating a cat’s-eye look and some nude lipstick, Stone looked simply beautiful.

Viola Davis matched her make-up to her emerald green Vera Wang dress. Keeping her face quite natural, she left her eyes to do the talking. An emerald liner was chosen to outline her eyes and her rather large earrings added an extra touch of the ‘wow’ factor that she needed for the red carpet.

With a high top, oversized bun and some natural make-up, Jenni from the Block just seems to get it right all the time. Looking as gorgeous as ever, she never seems to lose her golden glow.

How can we not mention good old Angie? Angelina Jolie graced the Red Carpet in a black velveteen Versace gown. Soft curls and red glossy lips made her look every bit the A-lister she is.

    Emma Stone – way too pale to have such dark hair and striking red lips. Also, dont much like the red lipstick Angelina is wearing!
