The awards show is typically an over-the-top affair, but this year, celebs opted for simple and chic hair and make-up. Kate, in particular, channeled this California-cool-meets-Hollywood-glam vibe with her side-swept waves.

Jennifer Lawrence

The Joy star; Jennifer Lawrence walked the line for the Oscars, relying on neutral-tone makeup and heavy dark liner around the eyes definitely made her new bright blonde hair stand out from the red carpet! The starlet stepped out with a fresh new dye job. The pale shade of blonde struck an arresting contrast against Lawrence’s smoky kohl-rimmed eyes and black lace gown. Her bold change is a testament to the glow-inducing powers of a double process, but also why she Hollywood’s favourite golden girl.

Next up we have Brooklyn star; Saoirse Ronan and she reminded us that an undone, textured blowout could easily be pulled off on the red carpet. With a brushed out beautiful wave and backed away from her face, team with a smoky eye; this look was perfect for Saoirse. The metallic shimmer from her bold eye make up also matched the actress’ sequins dress.

Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara channeled her inner Star Wars fan girl with her triple bun and powerful make-up. The Best Supporting Actress nominee is the undisputed queen of sleek, and with a sculptural updo Rooney looked the part on the Oscars red carpet. Mara slicked her hair into a series of severe bun twisted parts, which upped the dramatic impact of the allover lustrous polish that was entirely her own. And while most stars choose to focus on one standout feature—hair, lips, eyes—further elevating her statement updo by way of warm, smoky brown lids and an immaculate matte crimson lip.
