The Oscars are known for bringing out stars best and often boldest looks of the awards season. And while one of the most obvious trends of the 91st Academy Awards was “power pink,” several stars also opted to shine (quite literally) in sparkly metallic looks.

Oscars 2019: Best beauty looks
Gemma Chan’s cat eye and messy chignon
Said celebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein, working with Olivia Garden, of the Crazy Rich Asian star’s look:
“We wanted Gemma’s look to combine glamour with a little bit of coolness to give off French actress vibes, like Brigitte Bardot, something intentional but also effortless.”
Kacey Musgraves’ dewy look and bold brows
“As always, I take my cues from Kacey’s fashion choice and her stylist Erica Cloud dressed her in what she calls ‘cotton candy confection’ in the show-stopping Giambattista Valli Haute Couture,” explained makeup artist Moani Lee to Harper’s Bazaar on the country star’s look.
The singer also worked with hair stylist Giovanni Delgado, who used Oribe products to get her ready for the red carpet.

Lady Gaga’s intricate updo and white blue eyeliner
To show off her Tiffany Diamond, Lady Gaga opted for a dramatic updo and simple makeup. Celebrity hairstylist Frederic Aspiras went with “a clean simple upswept hairstyle that creates softness around face.” He used the ghd Air Hair Dryer to complete the look.

Rachel Weisz’ glossy locks and ornate headband
“I can’t believe I’m saying this, but in all the years I’ve been a hairstylist, this is my favorite Oscars yet,” explained Dove celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend. “Rachel’s look tonight is the definition of couture – this is fashion that is art. When I saw the pictures earlier this week, I immediately knew the hair needed to be sleek to compliment the timeless Cartier hair pins and her two-piece Givenchy latex gown.”
Emilia Clarke’s fuchsia lip, rosy cheeks and new hairdo
Emilia Clarke ditched her naturally blonde looks in favor of a brunette ‘do at last night’s Oscars.
“Emilia returned to a rich brunette for the Oscars — a really rich, healthy glossy shade that is just a touch darker than her natural color,” explained celebrity hairstylist Nicola Clarke. “I used Virtue ColorKick to amp the gloss and shine and maintain the health of the hair during the color process.”
“The inspiration for tonight’s look is directly from Giorgio Armani’s sketch. I wanted to celebrate Serena’s beautiful hair texture and iconic cheekbones,” said Dove celebrity stylist Nai’vasha Johnson on creating the tennis pro’s look.
Jennifer Hudson’s fresh makeup and light lip
The star took the stage for her fourth Oscars performance last night and looked beautiful as ever. She worked with celebrity makeup artist Adam Burrell using Burt’s Bees.
Amy Adams’ soft beach waves and glowing skin
Explained TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist, John D:
“We wanted to strike a balance of classic and cool. The hair was waved and slightly undone with the ‘classic John D.’ hair as Amy calls it. Our inspiration was 70’s mermaid vibes: playful and gorgeous.”
Stephen Sollitto created Amy’s gorgeous, glowing look courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty.
Ashley Graham’s middle part and dramatic makeup
“When I saw her in the Zac Posen dress I was immediately inspired by Sophia Loren and wanted her to have a face and body moment with the hair off the face,” said TRESemmé Global Stylist, Justine Marjan, who used a ghd AIR hair dryer and TRESemmé products for her look. “We did an elegant braided ballerina bun with custom Jennifer Behr bows throughout.”
Lucy Boynton’s flirty eyelashes and rosy eyeshadow
