As the Oscars approach this weekend, we thought it was a great chance to track down some amazingly inspirational beauty tips from our favorite celebrities walking the red carpet. Weddings are all about inspiration so where better to start than the awards season. We’ve included our seven favorite overall beauty looks we’ve admired from Hollywood. Each one would be perfect for a bride!
The mom of three and 2006 Best Actress winner looks stunning with amazing, lustrous Old Hollywood locks. This is the perfect beauty look for a vintage wedding, the subtle makeup also makes her glow. Gorgeous.
Kristen Wiig put aside the comedy for a seriously stunning look on the 2012 Oscars red carpet. We love this look for a wedding, with those loose waves and taupe makeup. It definitely was one of her best looks and has a casual glam about it we just love for a bride.
Jessica looked effortlessly beautiful with loose, half-up waves and a neutral lip at the 2013 Oscars. Three words came to mind: Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. And, if you were looking for proof that redhead brides can — indeed, should — wear red lipstick, this is all the evidence you’ll need.
Pure perfection. The nominated actress Mastered the red carpet in a chic bouffant and low bun, created by hairstylist Laini Reeves. This look is just stunning and really shows off just how beautiful she is. It is a little retro, a little modern, and a lot gorgeous.
Amanda Seyfried’s tousled updo went perfectly with her purple smokey eye and high neck to her gown for the 85th annual Academy Awards. She looked beautiful — but who could be surprised, as the woman has been consistently killing it beauty-wise throughout awards season. But, then she blinked, and holy cow! We didn’t know that a metallic lavender cat-eye could be a thing, but now it’s top on our list of looks to try.
No fair that the Silver Linings Star gets to win her first Oscar, stumble her way to the podium in the most adorable way, deliver a thoroughly endearing speech, AND win our award for best overall look. Those eyes, that hair, that pout! Simply stunning. This look is perfect for a glamorous wedding.
Wearing a shimmering Armani Prive dress, actress Naomi Watts was an Oscars stunner from her hair style to her gown at the 85th Academy Awards. We love her unique take on the wavy upsweep for the awards, it would definitely look amazing on a bride.
