Oscars 2010 was all about romantic glamour, and Hollywood gave good face! (and hair) There were some definite beauty trends emerging from the red carpet...just in time for Spring!

Bold Lips:

Sandra, Maggie and Cameron made a statement on the red carpet with their bold lips. Sandra wore a raspberry shade to add a pop of color to an otherwise classic look (Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Color in Paris), Maggie brightened up her pout with a fresh fuchsia tone (Nars in Schiap) and Cameron went with a warm tomato red (Chanel Lip Definer in Rouge and Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Color in Gabrielle).

Soft & Feminine:

Modern Hollywood Glamour Hair:

Cameron Diaz wore her hair in an updated version of a "Veronica Lake" style. She looked modern, sexy and glamorous. Great combo!

Anna Kendrick’s hair was young and modern. Her undone chignon was the perfect compliment to her romantic blush gown.

Kate Winslet also had "Veronica Lake" waves, but in a very polished, understated way. She was there to present, so this was the year to keep it classic and subdued. Kate always gets it right.

Best Actress winner, Sandra Bullock,  wore a sleek style with tons of shine. Her gorgeous brunette hair, had a barely there wave on the ends to soften the look. Perfect hair for her golden moment!

Honorable Mention:

Carey Mulligan and Kristen Stewart

What a differnce a little hair color makes! I'm loving Carey Mulligan's new blonde do. She looks so chic! Very Mia Farrow! 

Kristen Stewart had been rocking the dyed black-Joan Jett look, ever since filming The Runaways. It appears that she's lightened up her locks, going from drab to fab! The rich chestnut color compliments her pale skin, softening that rock-n-roll edginess. She looks like "Bella" again!
