So......I didn’t manage to stay up for it BUT I did catch the highlights AND more importantly the E! Red Carpet coverage (it’s so annoyingly fromage, right?!) WEEKS.....and weeks of preparation have been leading up to this night including ridiculous fitness regimes, diets, red carpet surgery, BOOB FACIALS and the outfit selection (take a look at my post from last week about pre-Oscar prep here.

It’s always set to be a night of show-stopping outfits, perfect makeup and sensational hair. If an actress gets a look right, it can only do her career well.

Here, are simply some of my favourite hair & makeup looks:

My favourite makeup/hair of the night is my girl crush Rooney Mara who can do no wrong! She is wearing 3 hot trends brilliantly.. the matte red lip, bold brows and strong fringe. Flawless skin.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Natalie Portman have a more soft lip with focus all around the eyes
Berenice Bejo gorgeous hair

Angelina & Milla both wearing the bold red lip well, I love the contrast of the white dress and pillar box lip.

Michelle Willaims offsets the boyish crop with a gorgeous girly pink lip

There was an ecelectic selection of dresses as always, with a few Key colours that were really evident, with a lot of actresses opting for WHITE...My girl crush and beauty/fashion idol of the moment Rooney Mara, Shailene Woodley (Valentino Couture), Gwyneth Paltrow (Tom Ford), Octavia Spencer, Milla Jovovich (Ellie Saab), J-Lo (Zuhair Murad), Cam Diaz (Gucci). There was also a good handful of RED: Natalie Portman (vintage Dior, of course), Michelle Williams (Louis Vuitton), Emma Stone (Giambattista Villa)and of course......BLACK. (Angelina and ‘that’ right leg - Versace,  Rose Byrne, Jessica Chastain & Anna Faris)

The wonderful whites & creams

Love this pic of J-Lo and C-Di

The Reds

Natalie Portman in Vintage Dior looked incredible, my favourite dress of the night.

The failsafe LBD's


The cuts of the dresses were almost divided, either sexy glamour floor length gowns OR the more demure minimalist dresses with long sleeves & high necks (Shailene Woodley, Emma Stone, Berenice Bejo).

Did any stand out for you?
