1920s style is definitely on trend with shows like Downton Abbey and the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby. Bobs are a beautiful option for those daring enough to step away from the long locks we see so often. Jody Foster looked sleek with her perfectly pruned, blunt bob. However, I am a big fan of curly bobs like Michelle Dockery was wearing. This look is fresh and flattering for women of all ages.
Reminiscent of Old Hollywood/Veronica Lake style, soooo many women wore this style. It is gorgeously glamorous. For a change of pace, Jessica Chastain's waves were smoothed back on the sides. The real standout to me for this Red Carpet staple was Kelly Osborne's vivid color. Look to Pravana's new ChromaSilk Pastels in Luscious Lavender to easily re-create the shade. A great dry set is an essential start for this classic look. Spray each section with a heat protecting spray before curling on a 1 1/4" ceramic iron. Pin each curl and allow to cool before and brush with a soft bristle brush, directing all the hair to one side.
My favorite look of the evening was Julianne Moore's ravishing-red French Twist. Tons of teasing, smoothing and pinning with a final misting of Aquage Beyond Shine will be in order. At some point in the show, Tina Fey's talented stylist crafted her coif into a similar style.
Nights like this when Hollywood starlets walk the red carpet in elegance are super exciting.
