Favorite Oscar Red Carpet Looks: A Retrospective of the Last Decade
Each year our favorite actresses make their way down the red carpet at the Oscars. The event is as much about fashion statements as it is about achievements in their field. Various actresses have stood out every year, with that indefinable something that makes them iconic.2001: Halle Berry
2001 was the year she won best actress for Monsters Ball, and Halle was as stunning on the red carpet as she was strung out and ragged in her role as the struggling widow of a convict. Her tousled hair look can be achieved with Aubrey Organics B-5 Design Gel. This long lasting, non-tacky mousse is designed to condition, improve body, and add volume and lift to hair while holding your artistically rumpled hairstyle perfectly in place.
2002: Kate Winslet
Kate wouldn’t win her Oscar until 2009, but in 2002 she glammed up her red carpet entrance with an even redder gown and gorgeous sleek hair. Are you tired of frizz, but equally tired of having to use multiple, chemical heavy products to tame your hair? Get Winslet’s smooth look by adding Weleda’s Rosemary Hair Oil to your routine. No hair spray needed — just comb it into wet hair and dry, adding a little to problem spots when brushing out.
2003: Jennifer Lopez
J-Lo turned heads at the 2003 Oscars with her mint green Versace dress that most critics agreed was a fashion disaster — but her eye-shadow was stunning. Mint green goes with nearly any coloring, adding a touch of the exotic — try it out for yourself using the Afterglow Eye Elements Trio in Earth — the sage and suede make for a slightly muted version of Lopez’ look.
2004: Angelina Jolie
At the 2004 Oscars, Jolie bared her tattoos in a plunging, white satin gown that had heads turning. Her makeup added to her daring fashion statement — heavy black eyeliner to accentuate her exotic eyes. With black Nvey Eco Organic Cake Eyeliner, you can also get the emphasis where you need it most — and rock on!
2005: Hilary Swank
In 2005, Hilary won her Oscar for Million Dollar Baby. She showed up on the red carpoet in a midnight blue gown with a train and no back. Her perfect skin played counterpoint to the deep color of her gown — and you can get Swank’s perfect skin with a velvet powder finish simply by using Lancôme Oscillation Power Foundation.
2006: Michelle Williams
A year after her own Oscar nomination for Brokeback Mountain, the Dawson’s Creek beauty showed up for the 2006 Oscars in a daring saffron Vera Wang dress — and pulled it off beautifully with bright red lips and a tousled hairdo. Get the same ‘kiss me now’ look with creamy Suncoat lipstick in Fire Red.
2007: Penelope Cruz
The Spanish beauty swished her way down the red carpet in beige dress with a slim fitting bodice and a skirt made of. feathers. Her skin practically glowed under the bright lights — don’t you wish yours would too? Try Afterglow Organic Glow Bronzer in medium.
2008: Katherine Heigl
The star of Roswell, Grey’s Anatomy and 27 Dresses sure knows how to wear a gown — and matches her makeup to her mood. Her pretty pink cheeks were what people noticed, increasing the health girl next door look. You can be that girl, too, with 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mimosa Blush!
2009: Anne Hathaway
She may not have won the Oscar she was nominated for in 2008, but that didn’t stop Anne from enjoying her red carpet walk in 2009 in a stunning Versace mermaid dress that glittered with every step. Her pale skin and wide eyes were accented with plentiful long, dark lashes — try for the same innocent but oh, so sultry look with Jane Iredale’s lash primer and mascara.
2010: Zoe Saldana
The beautiful Zoe warmed hearts as she walked the carpet in 2010. Her exuberant Givenchy gown fading every darkening purple to end in pom-poms at the hem was eye-catching, but her gorgeous bronzed skin was the talk of the night. Achieve warm coppery cheeks with Alima Pure blush in Melon for the same sun kissed look!
