Hair and Fashions @ The Oscars - 2019

Well, there were less ponytails, less messy updos with wisps flying all over the place, less old lady buns at the 91st Academy Awards.   Celebs were more groomed for the most part, some wore jewelry in their hair, which was not as disappointing as usual, but most were not very adventurous or innovative. Here are some of the more interesting hair and fashions:

Top Row, L-R: Presenter Amandla Stenberg’s two tone retro-inspired braids (finger waves on the other side, not shown!) were a stand-out … Adam Lambert’s earful of earrings, uncuffed shirt, huge orchid was another winner (he opened the Oscars with Queen to honor Bohemian Rhapsody) … An interviewer for ABC-TV on the Red Carpet with jewelry in the hair

Center Row, L-R: Charlize Theron and her new brunette bob … Emily Stone and her new brunette hair in Louis Vuitton with shoulders up and out to there …Bohemian Rhapsody’s Lucy Boynton with classic waves well done … Billy Porter in Christian Siriano’s tuxedo ballgown was a hoot …Joe Alwyn (The Favorite, Mary Queen of Scots) looking good … Unknown in tears of joy in audience with scattered little crystals in the hair … Melissa McCarthy and her spoof of The Favorite dress with stuffed bunnies presenting the Costume Design Award had the audience in stitches – loved, loved, loved.

Bottom Row L-R: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper performing Shallow, passionately, from A Star Is Born … Gaga and one of her convoluted hair
concoctions, Gaga’s eye makeup … Spike Lee, who won an Oscar at last, for BlacKkKlansman, Best Adapted Screenplay, was all color coordinated in a purple suit, a motor cycle cap, glasses, shirt, tie.

Charlize Theron – 2012/13 and before

Collage by

I first posted Charlize Theron in “Mad Max Fury Road” October 2013, then again when it was belatedly released on May 15, 2014.  Here I am posting it again because the movie got so many Oscar nominations today. And can be seen on HBO tonight. Here is my post.

Movie Actress, Oscar-winner Charlize Theron and her hair over the years from long to mid to bald to short buzzed with (omg, top right) grey showing to a short crop growing out beautifully.

She shaved her hair bald for the  new fourth  “Mad Max” movie, “Fury Road” –  due May 15  with Tom Hardy as Mad Max, the role Mel Gibson originated.  She plays Furiosa in the Australian Warner Bros movie which has taken a while to arrive.  (This collage and story were first posted on Helen’s Blog in October 2013!)

No wigs for Charlize.  Most of us first saw her cropped hair after the Mad Max shave at the 2013 Oscars, with Charlize looking magnificent,  a hot standout, but here are some earlier photos.  We also remember her from past Oscars, red carpets, the great J’Adore Dior Perfume Ads and we’ve always thought her beautiful, even bald.
