Oscars 2010: Trends from the Red Carpet

March 21, 2010

A couple weeks may have past since the big Oscar night, but the beautiful red carpet looks are still worth taking note, especially with spring sunshine and Prom season just around the corner! The expected classic smoky eyes and red lips made their appearance, but a couple new trends appeared on the night’s leading ladies…

Hot Pink Lips

Previously reserved for movie premieres and the Grammys (since, you know, musicians tend to be more loose), hot pink lips were spotted at this most prestigious of awards shows, proving that this bubblegum pop color can be both fun and classy! At least, when done right. Maggie Gyllenhal, Sandra Bullock, and Vera Farmiga slicked on this sweet hue, pairing bright lips with subtle eye makeup to gorgeous effect.
