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.

Lady Gaga dazzled them at the 88th Academy Award ceremony. There was sheer amazement seeing so many abuse survivors coming forth into the spotlight on stage after she sang “Til It Happens to You” from the movie The Hunting Ground, the song she wrote with Diane Warren which was nominated for an Oscar at the 2016 spectacular event.   The audience was touched, in tears, and her performance, introduced by Vice-President Joe Biden no less, was one of those special Oscar highlight moments.

Her hair, shown here on the red carpet, was blonde, waved, glam, created by stylist Frederic Aspiras for Pai Shau, using a cocktail of products of which you will hear more. Remember the name: Pai Shau. Her makeup by Sarah Tanno included Phyto-Ombre Mango eye shadow blended with copper, toffee, brown and burgundy,  in the crease, warm tones which worked well with the white sculptured top, jumpsuit and skirt by designer Brandon Maxwell. Her Lorraine Schwartz earrings are said to be worth a whopping $8 miillion!!  Dazzling in every way, Lady Gaga …
