by Petra Guglielmetti, Glamour Magazine
When Beth posted about Emmy Rossum's lovely ponytail, blog commenter amoscari noted something else about the pretty starlet's look: "The hair looks nice but can we talk about her eyeshadow? It's ORANGE! Whaaat is up with that?"
Yes, it's true: Emmy did choose an unusual light-orange eyeshadow color for this pre-Oscars party.
A closer look:
It's not neon orange, but it's still a daring and unusual choice. Here's what Emmy's makeup artist, Amy Nadine, had to say about the look: "Emmy picked a gorgeous buttercup yellow Oliver Tolentino '50's-silhouette party dress that was made out of pineapple and hemp fibers for the Global Green Oscar Party, so I wanted to use Tarte, as it's my favorite green makeup line. Inspired by the sweetness of the dress's color and form, I chose a color palette of sherbets and bubble gum, perfectly suited for spring."

If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
