Golden Globes 2013: The best beauty looks
We didn't just dream a dream of the most perfect red-carpet beauty look, we actually saw it, as Anne Hathaway came gliding down the red carpet. (OK, forgive us—at this point in the evening, we're pretty much getting by on Diet Coke and bad puns.) Styling a pixie cut may look easy, but believe us, it can go wrong. Anne's tonight was a lesson in how to do it right. And with luminous skin and a shade of pink lipstick that was absolute perfection, she dazzled as brilliantly as her to-die-for Chanel gown.
Who cares if she claims to not know what "haute" actually means—Lawrence looked amazing as always. She wore the brightest, most beautiful red Dior dress, and Jillian Dempsey kept her makeup simple with black liner and soft, smoky shadow, while Mark Townsend twisted and braided her hair into a textured updo that felt as youthful, fresh, and down-to-earth as the actress herself.
In a haze of smoky eyes, Seyfried's glittery pale eye makeup was a refreshing change of pace, and also nicely complemented her blush-colored Givenchy gown. She also sported the part of the evening‹clean and down the middle‹with some seriously enviable shiny waves.
Two words: smoking hot. When McPhee walked down the red carpet, the Twitterverse exploded with covetous tweets about her makeup, hair, body, and dress. Some could argue her messy top-knot [“topknot” is one word] was too casual for the occasion, but we think it had just the right amount of coolness and easiness to counterbalance her edgy getup.
The Good Wife actress always looks great on the red carpet but tends to stick to a safe formula of glamorous waves and black eyeliner. When she stepped up to talk to Ryan Seacrest wearing an electric red lip and a dominatrix-style sleek ponytail à la Jason Wu's fall 2012 show, we were blown away. Even George Clooney agreed.
Did Danes not get the memo that she had a baby—one month ago?! Apparently, because she hit it out of the park. The Versace dress was stunning, and her beauty look was equally smoldering, with smoky black shadow and a sleek blow-out [“blowout” is one word] that will be going directly onto our Pinterest board of hair ideas.
If there was ever an argument to match your lipstick to your dress, Alba's coral-on-coral look was it. She paired it with her go-to side-swept Old Hollywood waves, full, bushy brows, and a golden glow that made us want to break out our bottle of St. Tropez, stat.
She's sassy, she's sexy, and she can do no wrong on the red carpet. We rarely see Vergara wearing black, but she made sure to spice it up with a vibrant shade of red lipstick and her long hair flatironed for a slightly ’70s vibe that was a nice break from her typical voluminous blowout.
Amid the mass of Old Hollywood curls, messy topknots, and sleek middle parts, Moore's classic French twist (courtesy of Chris McMillan) stood out in the crowd. And with her sculptural updo and the mesmerizing bling hanging from her ears, she made sure to keep it simple with luscious, feathery lashes and soft pink lips.
OK, we admit it, we're absolutely obsessed with the Downton Abbey actress. We also admit that she played it safe on the red carpet with her beauty look. But sometimes safe is stunning‹and that was the case last night. She also gave us some hair inspiration: Who says short can't be sexy? Because her textured bob was seriously so.
