Sunday marks the 93rd Academy Awards and we’re expecting to be as wowed by the beauty looks as were are by the fashion. The hair and makeup carry equal importance, as it’s all about those finishing touches when it comes to red carpet fashion. You can’t remember Michelle Williams’s canary yellow Vera Wang without recalling just how perfectly it matched her crimson red lip. Or how Marion Cotillard’s shimmering scalloped Jean Paul Gaultier dress shone brighter against her glossy side-parted waves. Remember Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink taffeta Ralph Lauren gown, and how it was made all the more romantic by an elegant up-do and soft make-up?
